TAJ TALAH HOTEL (OLD TOWN): "CLIMB THE ROOF !" Top 5 Page for this destination Sanaa Nightlife Tip by DAO

Sanaa Nightlife: 4 reviews and 10 photos

They have a rooftop coffee shop, but they also have a roof top you can literally climb onto where they have the water tanks mounted. I am sure they do not want you to do this, but who’s looking? The very best view of the Old Town at night is up here. I climbed up – very carefully – with a torch (flashlight) and a tripod for my camera. What a fantastic view! I would encourage anyone to at least go and visit the coffee shop, whether they are open or not. The hotel will let anyone who asks politely to climb the stairs to the roof and have a look.

Hold on tightly to your camera!

Dress Code: Good climbing shoes if you want to go to the very top.
