I stayed at the Asmini for four nights in a double king bed room. The first night I woke with a few bites on my arm and wrist which I assumed were a mosquito bite. The next night I had a ton of small red marks on my feet, again I thought it was from maybe walking in the sand.... More

Very central for walking around the town and comfortable enough for one night stay. Very old style and in need of update but staff were friendly. Room had ensuite shower and toilet and a ceiling fan. Breakfast was on the roof top and pleasant - selection of fruit, eggs, bread and drinks. Reminded me of the design of the Marrakesh... More

I stayed at the Asmini for one night after three previous nights at The Coffee House (which was a gem). The Asmini faded by comparison . It is an interesting building in Arab courtyard style, but, while clean, does not have any stand out features. Wi-fi was poor and only available in the mosquito ridden atrium on the ground floor....

Good value for money and close walking distance to the ferry which is great for heavy bags! Very friendly and helpful staff. Credit card machine doesn't seem to work often so be prepared to pay in cash.
