One day is enough to assess this place If it was anywhere else I would say it needs a spark but it suits this country- its tired, not very busy, don't go out of their way to welcome you, but a positive , the rooms are comfortable so if that's all you need then ok

I stayed here in June 2016 on a business trip to Asmara. The hotel concierge collected us from the airport at 1am off the Qatar Airways flight. He was prompt and efficient and there were no problems at check in at that time of the morning. A pleasant surprise the Internet worked with reasonable speed, as did the telephone system.... More

The hotel is in half acre plot,with sitting arrangement in covered and open space. The open space is surrounded by well planned Garden with slides and Bouncy castle to keep the children occupied. The vegetarian food was very good,specially the Vegetable soup was exceptional. The main course was equally good with various Vegetables cooked and served over a Chapati made... More

I was a guest at an official meeting at this hotel, so I feel I must not be too ungracious about its shortcomings, but it fell far short of international standards for a hotel of its class. Eritrea is a country still developing from a heroic and tragic past and I guess pandering to foreign guests is not yet a... More

As a country that has little or no tourism, most visitors to Asmara are those travelling for business visits. As such, The Asmara Palace Hotel is probably the only good option (or rather, the best of the worst possibilities), where you would want to stay. This was an Inter-Continental many years ago, so some of the Inter-Continental equipment/logos still appear... More

If you arrive night time , better to have a light jacket because the temperature is cool. Room are spacious and clean. Breakfast is enjoyable and you can take it at the terrasse . Wifi is very low....staff... More

It was rather empty except for one other Chinese man there. A nice swimming pool by my standards. Indoor and outdoor ones available. Price to get in is a couple hundred nakfa. Reasonable price for most foreigners. Restaurant decoration was nice. Buffet had cold food but ordering from the menu meant waiting around one hour. Typical in Eritrea. Wifi available... More

Be warned!!! The management of the hotel are incompetent. Make sure if you are having a late check out you understand the charges, that they won't tell you about. A colleague and I stayed for two nights and had late flight out (as most are). We asked the day before the reception what was the latest we could check out... More
