Very basic hotel, but several steps above guest house or backpacker's hotel. Shower is typical Ethiopia: shower head coming out of wall and 30" by 30" shower floor, unenclosed. A little cold at night, but they kindly provided an extra comforter. Very clean. Wifi is present, but useless. Restaurant downstairs is quite good. Very little English spoken by anyone. For... More

Insisted on staying somewhere other than the Menelik as I was avoiding a couple of people and this turned out to have been the best move I could have made (reports of sewage smell from the Menelik did not sound nice). The staff are cooly efficient, the room was spotless and breakfast was excellent. Also ate in the evening and... More

I have used the Yordanos twice stopping off there with work. It was always fine for my needs ,the staff were friendly ,and it is reasonably priced . You must remember where you are , this isn't London ,Paris or New York !

I had originally stayed a t the castle hotel which is significantly older but has a beautiful patio and a certain old world character but continuing problems with water supply forced me to enlist my favourite Bajaj driver to find a new home. One of the places he suggested was the Yordanos and I was sold on it right away.... More

Very tasty decoration, nice staff, huge room and hot water (not so easy in Ethiopia). Breakfast could be improved.Very well located. Offers if u come through any Tour agency. Ask for rooms with street view (bigger).

We spent two nights here pre and post a 3 night Danakil/Erta Ale trip. It's tricky to rate Ethiopian hotels as the standard cannot be compared internationally. We were vey comfortable and enjoyed our stay here. The restaurant is great (try the Shiro Bozena). There were some communication issues with the front of house and reception staff.

Didn't stay here, but the restaurant was very good - esp.the dry tibs and shiro bozana. The staff was very nice and professional - very rare in Ethiopia :). Avoid the Axumite wine, unless you love sweeeeet red.

I have stayed 3 times in Mekelle over the last decade and am wondering why things fail to change. Jordanos hotel is nothing more than adequate and the price is fair, but the standards are just not improving over the years and there is nowhere in the town that is truly well run and reliable where you can be sure...
