it has power shortages evey day from 2:00-4:00 and midnight to 6am. noise from the near by nightclubs wakes you up at night but this is common all over ethiopia. don't go to the Royal enclosure, expensive and nothing to see. the restaurant is good and the owner is a great helpful guy

I got a very big room with views to the inner court, where the restaurant and the bar are located, so it was noisy until they closed at night. Furniture and bed cover were a little bit run-down but nothing to complain about. After having a shower, there was water coming out from under the cubicle for some time but... More

We did not stay at the hotel, but only ate in the restaurant. The view of the piazza is wonderful. Hungry for home, we ordered beer and pizza. Good pizza, though a bit different from American. And of course the St. George brew is good. It was a nice place to gather with friends outdoors above the town.

The hotel is in the centre of Gondar but extremely noisy especially as the mass starts at around 6am and is on loud speakers! The rooms were ok and fairly clean but the bathroom had hardly any shower water and never hot, I had to change rooms as the first room had no water at all coming from the shower.... More

The hotel Quara is pretty poor. The rooms are dirty, badly maintained (the shower door fell off when I tried to use the shower ), and the bed And bedding smelt of the many other people who had slept there before. The 6 am mass is also very loud if you don't have to get up at 6 am.

We didn't stay here but we went her for dinner twice. I am not so much of a pizza fan but the pizza here was good. The roof top restaurant gave you views of the square while you waiting for your food. I thought that the staff were helpful and fun. So if you need a place to eat in... More

I can hardly believe that this is the "best" hotel in town! It is completely run down. The rooms are clean but nothing special. The "hydromassage" shower must be a joke!!! The restaurant offers food in can if I judge our "tomato soup"! The court in the middle of the hotel is very noisy and looks more like a garage.... More

We stayed one night at this hotel in December 2014. I suspect they must have done some renovations recently. The bedroom was compact, but adequate with clean comfortable beds. There is a TV and a small refrigerator. A small terrace with a view on the piazza. The bathroom was spotless. The shower has a 'massage' feature in it, but beware.... More

I stayed here a couple of years back and wrote a fairly damning review. I didn't stay this time, but did eat in the restaurant and have drinks on the terrace overlooking the piazza a couple of times. It's a great spot for observing people but little has changed since I was last there. The service is terrible - waiting... More
