Liked: Staff & service

Bathroom very dated only shower tray with wrap round curtain. Bed and pillows ridiculously hard and very uncomfortable. Service however very good. very expensive for what you get, but that Eritrea for you. The Wi-Fi was none existent

Hotel full of character in the middle of town.
Old-time Italian, full of oddities. Very nice reception and restaurant staff but menu needs reworking and language corrected. If things don't work in your room, e.g light, hot water, they repair immediately. I enjoyed my stay.

Sunshine Hotel Asmara
Sadly Eritrea is not a tourist destination to recommend. The hotel is expensive for about a one star hotel. Wifi is virtually non existent, hot water a rare commodity and food very average. One can only travel out of Asmara with difficulty and great expense. Not a place I will return to in a hurry, much as I loved Asmara in the past.

Good hotel in a spectacular city
The hotel staff and friendly and helpful. The breakfast (included) was good. The biggest complaints would be slow internet service and inability to use credit cards, but that's true everywhere in Eritrea. On the whole, a good place to stay in Asmara.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Decent place to stay in Asmara
Nice place--a bit worn around the edges, and the bed isn't the most comfortable. Wi-fi barely exists, but a nice stay overall. Staff are wonderful and the neighborhood can't be beat. Recommended overall.
