Don't be deceived by the nice looking hall, this hotel is an unpleasant, dirty place to stay in. Rooms are in very poor conditions (it took us a while before finding one with working water and a toilet that was not broken), the moquette has seen better days and bedsheets were dirty and smelly. Did I mention the cockroaches we... More

Plus: Its pretty central and close to ETT offices, the rooms were moderatly clean. Tip: Get the "single" room (which has a double bed) instead of a twin - save a third of your money. HOWEVER if you are two females or two males - you can't sleep in a double bed, you have to get a twin. But they... More

If you think this is a real four star hotel, you will be dissapointed. If you think, that this hotel a bit better, than any backpacker one, you are wrong. They never pick up the telephones and most of the staff spaks only a local language. The lobby and the bar looks like an old, traditional hotel. The rooms are... More

I had been staying in Milano Hotel a couple of times. The hotel reasonably cheap and located near the center of the business area in Merkel. The rooms are spacious and have the service is ok. Perhaps, the rooms require renovation since some of utensils are not functioning well. The service is quite good.

This hotel is horrible. The rooms are falling apart, plugs coming out of the walls, dirty, toilets with no backs, weak hot water, a sink that leaked water all over the floor, and TONS OF COCKROACHES. It was so gross.

Totally, the service by the hotel is very poor and everybody has stayed here can say the same opinion, I think. This hotel has a name of Italian city, "Milano", but they have neither italian culture nor taste in it. Hotel rooms were not so clean. And you can face cutting off in water supply and some times electric outage.... More

I stayed there for business purpose. It hardly met my basic needs for clean and quite room. The bed is just okay , the breakfast had limited options , the housekeeping team do not give much privacy and talk loudly through guest room corridors. Although everyone seems friendly it is clear to see most of them lack professional training.

Don't be fooled into thinking this is acceptable. I looked at 10 rooms after being shown one which was reasonable and checking in. We were asked to pay in advance??? and once we had done so, we went up to our room (not the same room we were shown) and it was awful. I looked at 10 other pathetic rooms... More

I know the hotel from its names Hawzen to Milano different owners. Still rooms need to be re innovated to smell good look good. Its staffs and "tour guide" friendly atmosphere , its central locations makes it the strategic place in Mekelle to meet travel mates specially to go to Denakil ,tour guides and car rentals. It is why weather... More
