I recently spent a few days in Asmara, Eritrea which is a wonderful, fascinating city in a lovely, rarely traveled African country. The Sunshine Hotel was an all around perfect location for me as I walked around this old Italian Colony, marveling at a collection...More

As I checked in at 4am and left at 1am a few days later, it wasn't quite 5 full days and was therefore pleasantly surprised when they only charged me for four nights' stay at 60 USD (including tax) per night with a double bed,...More

Sunshine Hotel is the most prestigious hotel in Eritrea. It is located in the heart of Asmara, the capital city. Sunshine that is still being commended frequently for being very serviceable and of course More outranking in the overall internal as well as external comely settings of its environment, became functional on July 27, 1996. Yet its doors live across time bearing the spirit of hospitability in the minds of those who tried its service. Our customers from overseas, from the continent, or local places have shared the outlasting delight we exist for to offer. We make people coming far from home feel at home. For example, all the US government officials who accompanied the visit of the first lady of the United States of America to Eritrea in 1997 were served well with us. The UN secretary general, Mr. Kofi Anan and Mrs. Hilary Clinton were some of the visitors during the first one year age of the hotel. The stay of the Italian president is too a living testimonial to the loyal service we offer in which comfort and luxury are paired. Very reasonable reservation cost, with a free breakfast throughout your stay, is existent only at Sunshine Hotel. Besides, its location becomes strategic because of its nearness to all the major places of governmental and corporate activities in Asmara. Please get some of the impressions from the pictures even though its credibility is checked out via a visit in-person: 26 rooms, out of these 5 being first class suite rooms and 2 bars with live entertainment on weekends.
