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.

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.

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.

Decent tourist hotel in Asmara
Perfectly adequate hotel for Asmara. Needed a hotel our first night and stayed at the Crystal. Relocated to another property for the rest of our stay, but Crystal was fine for one night.

There are no credit cards accepted anywhere in Eritrea. Hotel either takes US dollars, Euros or local currency. There is no elevator at this hotel. The restaurant is excellent with cheap prices. Shuttle service is excellent but is not cheap.
