Djibouti|5.47km from downtownThis is a central, quiet hotel with large rooms. It’s an older hotel and there can occasionally be a few standard African maintenance issues, but what sets it apart are the brilliant staff. The front desk team of Mohamed Abdo, Mohamed Ahmed and Naguiba (recently from the Sheraton) are the engine that keeps this hotel humming. There is hot water; good air conditioning and reasonably fast WIFI. From organizing airport transfers (the driver will be there at your appointed flight arrival time even though it’s a 2-3 hour wait for the airport Covid testing); taxi transfers and even laundry while I was visiting Lake Abbe and Mogadishu (to be billed upon my return), they performed brilliantly. And always with a welcoming smile and greeting. Truly a class act. The breakfast buffet is very good when there are a sufficient number of guests. Other days, you can always get croissant, bread and pain au chocolat, cereal, yoghurt, and a made to order cooked breakfast. They also make fresh orange juice. The dinner and lunch menu is currently a bit restricted but they will make you something you like. Food is okay. Restaurant closes at 10 pm but there is 24 hour room service. If you have an early flight they will prepare fruits snd a drink for breakfast to go. I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else when next in Djibouti.
