Djibouti Hotels, Hostels & Accommodation
Sheraton Djibouti Hotel
The Horseed won't feature in the pages of the Condé Nast Traveller and its location is not the most prepossessing, but the prices are competitive and the rooms presentable. Air-con is extra (around DFr500).
The Menelik has a certain 'could be anywhere' sensibility in its décor and standards, but its very central location is a gem, with all the bars, restaurants and clubs at your tiptoes. Amenities are solid, and the bathrooms are exceedingly clean.
Hotel Ali Sabieh
One of the most reliable options in town. Top marks go to the clean-smelling rooms, the back-friendly mattresses and the immaculate bathrooms. Another plus is its position, right in the thick of things.
Bed & Breakfast La Maison Blanche
La Maison Blanche is seventh heaven if you need to pamper yourself after a tiring overland trip.
Hotel De France
A short stagger from Place Lagarde, this is a reassuring choice for budgeteers with no surprises (good or bad) up its sleeves. Rooms are generous and comfortable, if a little anonymous.
Auberge Sable Blanc
Another commendable haunt for penny-pinchers. Not far from blvd de la République, this converted villa boasts a mixed bag of rooms, so ask to see a few.
