Consisting of a group of four quaint little multi-storied townhouses, out of the many similar ones scattered all around Sana'a, the Arabia Felix Hotel takes pride in the very authentic, vernacular culture of Yemeni life it presents to you. Situated right in the middle of the Old Sana'a area, near to the cultural bazaars, the national museum, and the local post office with its adjoining street restaurants, this place provides the ultimate up-close-and-personal experience for any outsider on a budget.
Small, basic bedrooms, fully carpeted, with clean sheets, colorful stained glass windows and adequate ventilation. Bathrooms are not attached in all rooms, so ask before renting one out. All rooms, however, contain a telephone set, with international dialing.
Single rooms start at $22, Doubles at $25, Triples at $38, and Suites at $80, with additional 10% service charges applicable. The prices for the rooms include breakfast. Laundry and fax services available at reasonable charges.
A charming dining space downstairs provides a range of local and continental cuisine.
A coffee shop, open all day, offers hot and cold beverages and light Yemeni snacks.
A romantic little garden attached to the dining space lets you have open-air snacks and meals, or just relax in between meals.
