So Nice I Stayed Thrice Feb 06, 2017
Yes, I really have stayed here 3 times. My tour company (Adventure Tours) chose the hotel and I enjoyed my stays. Crystal Hotel is one of the modern built hotels in Asmara and it is a 10 minute stroll to Harnet Avenue and central Asmara. It sits in a quiet road, although all of Asmara is quiet. Downstairs is a large restaurant and bar with a small garden at the rear. The local food is excellent. The rooms are modern, clean and in good repair. There is a desk, TV, sofa, closet and plenty of mirrors. Bathrooms offer plenty of hot water in the showers (only). They will issue you with towels and just a small bar of soap so pack your own toiletries. This is standard in Eritrea.

The reception staff are amazing and nothing is an issue. If you need to arrange anything, just ask. The bar and restaurant staff are very friendly and if you want room service – it’s still the same price. Sometimes when there is a shortage of local beer (really), its best to get room service as they save bottles for hotel guests.

The only issues I had her were just general laughter from the garden area at night and the beds. I found room 208 was the best. It’s in the far corner at the rear of the hotel. Absolutely silent. As for the beds, this is true of every hotel in Eritrea. They were not bad, but just not the highest quality. I slept ok, but they really need to open a modern mattress factory here.

They have free Wi-Fi, but the whole country gets poor speeds. The mini bar is nice and cold and you can just ring reception for more drinks to be brought to you. They also leave fresh fruit in the room daily for you.

Plus points: The hotel is air-conditioned, free wifi, breakfast is included and their restaurant is excellent.

Rooms have private bathrooms, a mini bar, wifi and are also air-conditioned.

You can make reservations and/or haggle a price using a form on their website.
