I stayed two weeks here on business. it felt very safe and was conveniently downtown. The rooms are fine, very clean. They brought complimentary fruit most days - very nice. And once a week they gave the non-Muslim guests a bottle of wine (on Thursday!). Amazing in such a dry place and very appreciated. There was a manager's party by the pool one evening with wonderful grills - also a very nice touch when one is so "confined to the barracks". There is a pastry display case in the lobby where one can buy snacks, or sit and have a tea or coffee and a pastry from the shop. Most everywhere in Yemen people can still smoke, and that is the case in the lobby, but in the restaurant there is a non-smoking part.
I had stayed here three three years ago, and the menu had not changed, I'm sure. The hotel is Indian run, and the Indian food on the menu was the best choice, I feel. Since it is unsafe to go out much you are at the mercy of the hotel restaurant and after a while the menu seems very limited. That said, the restaurant staff especially were very friendly and remembered what one took for breakfast and so on. Breakfast was included in the rate, but wifi was not, and when your wifi card ran out you had to call the business office and they sent someone up with another card. Generally the internet was available and had a good speed.
Good pool and pool area - the women's gym downstairs is windowless and not too inviting.
The hotel has a generator, and as soon as the electricity goes out in the area the generator kicks in.
