  Africa Pension, Asmara
by georeiser

Africa Pension is a former villa with colonial charm and a beautiful garden. Build in the 20's, the Africa Pension was used as a High Court during the period of Ethiopian occupation. During the last 20 years before liberation, it was used as a bar and by the Ethiopian Navy.
It is located in a silent area of Asmara, 2 minutes walk from Harnet Avenue.

I don't think Africa Pension deserves the reputation it has. The hotelroom I looked at had no bathroom. You could use a shared toalet and bathroom in the corridor. The price for a duble room is about 250 Nakfa.
