Hotel is well appointed and sits on a hill overlooking the city and close to UK embassy. Security is good and we had a number of meetings where people could come to the hotel unmolested. Felt perfectly safe inside whilst noise of gunfire outside. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and although the AC wasn't working very well that... More

I (George Cheriyan) stayed at Moevenpick Hotel Sana'a for a conference from March 3-7, 2014. From the security point of view, it is the most high security hotel in Sana’a. The entry to the hotel took some time, due to multiple level security check at the gate. Due to security, vehicles will stop about 200 mts away from the porch... More

I'll try to make it quick, I have been told that Yemen is not safe and has many troubles and security issues. I did expect to have the worst visit. but, after I booked the room online and called the reservation office. Mr. A.

The building is impressive and the rooms are tastefully appointed. That is where the good things end. TV is a prehistoric version of 18" luxury. The AC in the room wasn't working and upon complain they sent someone, who after fiddling for 40 minutes declared it will start working in 30 minutes and after 3 days still wasn't working. I... More

Oasis of calm - good security, extensive grounds to get some air. 20m indoor pool + larger outdoor pool, sauna, hot tub, tennis, squash, basketball courts etc ... Staff are very friendly and helpful. Only one restaurant choice featuring very mediocre pizza, pasta and 'international menu' - would be much better if they stuck to good Yemeni cuisine ... or... More

The movenpick is a strange place and you probably have no choice but to stay here. But if you're coming to Sanaa, it's not bad. The rooms are decent and the service is fine. The main gripe I have is that you can't get Yemeni food anywhere in the hotel. Yemen has great food, but for some reason, management has... More
