Staff were really helpful and the hotel's in a great location. Only downside is that the room isn't well soundproofed, so noise from the corridor could be loud.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The best choice in Asmara. Great location in the center of town. Very good, friendly and attentive service. Very clean room and hence a very good stay. Given the financial and investment situation in Eritrea, it is unsurprising that the rooms are a little spartan but that is no criticism of the hotel. I would definitely return to the Crystal.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Clean & friendly. Arrived morning of 7th October with room confirmation from Expedia for 19 days. I was shocked to be told they did not know of this booking and that they had a room for only two days!! I was very disappointed about this state of affairs. Sadly wi fi was not working and could not tell Expedia of my status. On the second day of my stay I was told I could stay for the booked 19 days and they apologised for the imperfect info I was given day before!! So the first two days were hair raising not knowing what I could do about it.
