The hotel is centrally located. The pizza and the fresh fruit juice was good. My room was clean but the hotel itself is worn out. The shower was moldy with low water pressure but at least it was warm water. We used the shuttle to the airport and our driver decided to give his friends a ride to multiple locations... More

There was a construction all around, but it might be over by now. The have very good restaurant and wonderful fruit juices there.) There is one more thing: hotel is 6 flights... More

According to our Ethiopian guide - very experienced -this was the best place for lunch in Gondar town centre but not to stay in. We ate upstairs on the terrace overlooking the main square and the statue Theodophilus. Lots of kites circling overhead. I had a marguerite piazza for US$3 served on a wooden platter and my husband had Indian... More

By far the most run-down hotel we stayed in in Ethiopia. It's old, and The room was small, furniture jammed in - including a small refrigerator. The bathroom was tiny and really dingy - painting over moldy cracks and crevices doesn't make it look any more hygienic, and the floor was always wet (the hotel does provide shower clogs). Kept...

Quara did offer a decent discount for low season and included breakfast and transport to the airport. Rate was $45 US for the 3 of us. It is run down as... More

The hotel is right in a city centre. Rooms are light and clean with a view over the city. But that's it. The restaurant and bar services are poor. Breakfast was cold and tasteless. The hotel has a jacuzzi and sauna service but we were told that people of a different sex cannot go in together. The hotel has 2... More
