  • Old Mukalla City
  • Quaiti Palace



There are plenty of small shops, markets and a supermarket in Al Mukalla.




Ramada Al Mukalla Hotel
  • Ramada Al Mukalla (Holiday Inn). Arguably the best hotel in the area. It is not in the city centre but is a few km away. It has its own private beach, swimming pool and intermittent internet. All rooms have a sea view. It used to be a Holiday Inn, but has changed to the Ramada brand. Be careful on the beach as it is rocky with sharp objects/sea urchins at low tide.  edit
  • Hadhramaut Hotel, P.O.BOX NO: 50059, AL-MUKALLA, 00967-5-302060/303441/2, [1]. Has swimming pool. On the eastern side of the city.  edit
  • Al Salama Hotel. Cheaper hotel in the old city  edit
