Situated atop a hill overlooking the town, with the rooms scattered in pavillions in a grove, this could've been a wonderful hotel. Unfortunately, the rooms are rather shabby, though the excellent and reliable staff does its best to remedy minor breakdowns, and make the experience palatable. On the plus side: warm water supply is reliable, the beds are OK, there's... More

This hotel is on the outskirts of Mek'ele, and as the name suggests, on a hill; consequently it is much cleaner air than the places in the city centre; equally, it's a bit of a walk from the centre, though only about 20-30 Birr by tuk-tuk The European food is iffy - some can eat it and be fine; stick...

I recently stayed at this hotel for the first time and left wondering why I ever stayed anywhere else in Mekele. Exceptional views, fresh air, and quiet as compared to almost any other hotel in Ethiopia (note - hotels in Ethiopia are usually very noisy/discos, bars, next to roads, and churches which start at 0330hrs sometimes). The food is fine... More

the hotel is a little outside the town, and - the name says it - high on a hill; so walk there only if you need serious exercise; the rooms are not bad, but the bathrooms are very poor; make sure you get a shower that works, and every time you go into the room, make sure that the staff... More

The hotel was probably nice enough many years ago but it should have closed down by now. Very smelly surroundings, door to bathroom doesn't close, doorknob falls off, lights are all very dim. The restaurant is possibly even worse. From our company of four each with a different dish, no one managed to eat more than a couple of bites.... More

In an elevated position above the main road leading north from Mekele, with open views of the area. The lounge, bar and reception areas are pleasant and comfortable. The comfortable restaurant is above and has extensive views of the surrounding area. The food and service was good. Outside, at the front of the hotel are tables and chairs, with shade,... More
