This hotel has clean spacious rooms and friendly staff. It is centrally located. However it is quite noisy as there is a cafe right next to the hotel. 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...

The pink palace was recommended by friends of mine. I tried to get a decent low season deal at one of the upper end properties but they wouldn't deal. 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

The hotel is centrally located at the city of Gondar, with a very nice over one of the main squares but... On the night from Saturday to Sunday I was suddenly waken up at 3.0 am! By the music and psalms of the nearby orthodox Monastery, they were celebrating an early mass retransmitted by loudspeakers! It was impossible at all... More

The hotel is basic with a good central location. We did not enjoy our stay because of a very unfriendly "welcome". We were given a "first class room". Rooms at the back are bad with a view to an empty yard and other hotel rooms while rooms to the main square have nice views and small balconies. We were given... More

First, Avoid a man by the name of PETER (with short dreadlocks) who says he can coordinate your city travel plans (ie: transport, guide). He lied to us, completely overcharged us for minibus fare and treated other tourists with little respect. He loiters in the Quara lobby as soon as a flight full of tourists arrives. The Quara Hotel was... More
