My comments are referred to European hotels' standards: the room was large and with good furniture, proper and fully functional. The location is downtown Asmara, so it is possible to reach the most interesting places also by walking a bit. The place is quiet. The employees are gentle and reactive to the customers' needs.

Situated in the peaceful area just a step from the city center this hotel has a perfect location. The rooms are enough big and very clean. The breakfast is good. The staff is very friendly. For eritrean standards it is an excellent hotel.

I was in Asmara on a work trip for a week and the hotel was booked by my company. The hotel mostly met with my needs very well, and with a competitive price level. What I will remember best is the friendly staff. My room was on the second floor with a view to the street. The room and its...

The hotel was functional and the staff was friendly. The food was also ok. Wifi was spotty, but generally better than in other parts of the city. So long as you are not expecting anything fancy, I think the rooms and facilities will do. TV and phones also worked well for the most part. That said, the location was great,...

I stayed a few nights at the Crystal Hotel and found it to be comfortable and pleasant. The rooms are rather small and could do with more natural light but the breakfast and coffee was good and the restaurant for dinner was of a higher standard than most in Asmara. Wifi and hot water was however erratic

The best thing about Crystal hotel is the location, ideal for visiting and walking around Asmara city center. It is only 100 mt away from the main road and you will not need taxis to move around town. The service of the hotel is good and the staff are very nice and polite. Rooms are clean and spacious. The main...

This hotel is centrally located in a beautiful city. the rooms were good and reasonably priced and everything functioned perfectly. the best thing by far was the staff who were always friendly and helpful. and the breakfast of freshly squeezed juice with a cappuccino makes you forget this is one of the poorest countries in the world.

“I like the ones with the balconies best - 103, 203, and 303. 103 is a bit close to the street noise. The ones to the rear are not very exciting, and smaller.”
