Zabid Tourism Resthouse
Zabid Tourism Resthouse Reviews
Overpriced flea-infested place Nov 11, 2008
This is the second time staying at this resthouse. The first time, I was OK with it ... second time though, my spirit of adventure (and acceptance of its simple offerings) disappeared because they were charging ridiculous prices.
For the price of a typical comfortable Yemeni hotel, you get here:
- rope beds with no bedding or sheets
- no pillows, only cushions with no pillow-cases
- fleas and flea-bites
- air conditioning
- shared toilet and shower
They charge YER1800 per person ... less than indicated in the Lonely Planet at YER2500 but it is still very expensive.
The meals are excellent but somewhat overpriced at about YER1300 per head.
