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

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were smelly and the shower was cold. The food was terrible and the staff rude. However, I had one of the best drinking nights of my life in it's bar. Two Southafrican miners coming out of the Danakil depression wanted to party hard, and of course we ended... More

Notwithstanding the other reviews, in my experience, not a bad choice if you're in Mek'ele without the budget for the somewhat inflated Axum Hotel room rates. Milano has a number of things going for it: the staff for one are friendly and helpful, and manager Tewodros/Teddy is usually happy to help. The location is also good - right on the... More

We were horrified by our terrible experience and the shocking attitude of the staff at this hotel. We arrived in the evening, tired from 14 hours of travelling on buses, and were given three different rooms in succession, all with different problems: the first room was cockroach infested, the second room's hot water heater and TV were broken, and the...
