Property conditions & facilities


6/10 Good

Basic accommodations with poor wifi
Basic 2-star hotel near the Djibouti City Center. The rooms are basic, with large bed and en-suite. Air conditioning worked well (Djibouti is incredibly hot). The main problem here is the wifi - no matter where I was in the hotel I was faced with connectivity problems and was barely able to open even one webpage during my stay. I departed after one night to find stronger wifi, as I had important business to attend to. Breakfast was basic (omelette) but the restaurant otherwise served cheap dishes (eg. Hot chicken baguette for $4 USD, Coke for less than $1 USD). Overall I’d recommend as long as you are not relying on their wifi connection

4/10 Fair

I don't know where all these "very good" reviews are coming from. This hotel is poor and value for the money is especially bad. There ARE better hotels in Djibouti City that are the same or lower price... I booked this one because I needed to satisfy my visa requirements and just needed something easily booked online. So we stayed here for our first night but moved to another hotel further in the city that was vastly superior AND $10/night cheaper! Do your research and avoid this place.

Decent prices for Djibouti
Don't be scared at the first glimpse of the hotel. One would think the hotel should be closed, such is the number of rooms closed for renovation. The first impression of the room is not great either. However (!!) even though rooms are very basic they are clean and, on my case, had air conditioning, which is like mandatory if you want to have a good night sleep as even the evenings are hot in Djibouti. Location is perfect, at walking distance from all things that matter. Staff is really good too.

8/10 Very good

Budget hotel... Don't expect much
This is a budget hotel (Djibouti is expensive), so keep that in mind. Pros: kind and friendly staff, good air conditioning, clean rooms. Cons: no curtain on the shower, intermittently slow and fast WiFi, noise from schools nearby. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation so there is more from construction as well. As a single woman traveler, there are few other women around, but I felt fine in the hotel. Area nearby is safe but you have to walk/take taxi to get to anything. Sweet milk tea for free breakfast was one of the best parts.

The hotel has value for money. It is very close to the central town, which is good for catching taxi and going for shopping. The room was hygienic and spacious. Hotel staff members were very kind.
