Does anyone know the Ambassador hotel on Harnet Ave in Asmara? Specific quesitons I have are: How is the hotel? How far is the Ambassador from the airport? How much should a taxi cost to the hotel? How does one change money upon arrival into Asmara? Is there a change place at the airport? Thanks in advance!!!!

    Don't know that particular hotel, but I paid 100 Nakfas for a taxi at 2 am from city to airport. It may be more expensive when coming in, note however that there is a very cheap bus during the day, too. I'd say change a tiny amount (like 20 USD or so) at the airport, then change the rest in town on the blackmarket - people will approach you, and I bet the hotel will also do it. Don't you have a guidebook, BTW???

    Thanks. And yes, I do have a guidebook, the same LP one that others have. I have read conflicting information, probably because things change. That is why I was looking for first hand answers.
