The Penthouse at the Keren Hotel.

January 6, 2006

I stayed in this crumbling old hotel in the center of town–in what must have once been the penthouse suite–for 132 nakfa, which means $8.80. (You can see the door to the room in one of the photos below–the steel door beneath the staircase there) The shower dispensed frigid, rusty water, and the bed was a military cot with a mosquito net. But I’m sure it was extremely classy in 1962.
