What kinds of gyms or other sports/workout facilities are available? Are they expensive?

There are two gyms that I know of...outside of the Embassy gym. There is a gym near the US Embassy that is 400 Nakfa per month. There is a gym at the Asmara Palace hotel which I found to be cost-prohibitive and in addition they were not accepting new memberships. That said, if you are a diplomat or some other expat, if you can afford the price, the management will likely work with you, to get you a membership. - Dec 23, 2016
