Lonely Planet review
A good safe bet well worth bookmarking, with a ramshackle charm. There are three kinds of rooms to suit most budgets. Though very simple, the cheaper rooms are good value. The more expensive ones have bathroom, air-con and balcony with sea views. The on-site restaurant is an added bonus.
Our independent authors have visited Corallo Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Massawa.
