We arrived here from Addis (with FKLM Ethiopia travel, also amazing) and were charmed by the hotel and its atmosphere. The rooms are nicely decorated in an unpretentious, cosy way and there's loads of hot water (not something we were lucky with even in 4* and 5* hotels in Ethiopia). The view from the restaurant and patio is wonderful. You... More

Having stayed in some strange and very backward hotels, the Goha Hotel was a godsend for us. We occupied 2 rooms and they both had amazing bathrooms with power showers and hot water. The rooms were extremely clean and safe. The rooms were modern and had a tv with a number of channels. There was a sitting area and a... More

When we arrived to check in we were told that we did not have a booking (our tour guide had booked and confirmed our accommodation earlier in the year). After throwing a tantrum we were provided with two rooms. The toilet overflowed in the one bathroom, there was no hot water, most of the lights did not work, no tv... More

Sitting atop a hill with great views over the town, the hotel is modern and comfortable. My room was spacious, with 2 single beds, sitting area and desk. The restaurant has an extensive local and international menu and seemed good value. Wifi is supposedly available in the rooms, but nobody had told my room! In public areas it is reliable... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night, it is located on top of the hill with a 360 degree view of Gondar city. Amazing hospitality, nice food, our daughters liked the french toast during the morning free breakfast. At one moment, even the owner showed up to check with us if there was any issue we are concerned about.... More

The place where the hotel is offers a very good view. The pool seems also very nice (although we did not go into it) and the bar/restaurant is nice too. The rooms are however not so good, a bit too dirty for such an hotel. In average, the hotel is however OK.

I have stayed at the Goha a number of times since it's days as a government run hotel to it now being privately owned. The new owners are extending the hotel and refurbishing all the rooms but the ongoing work did not disrupt or disturb us at all. The manager told us all the work would be completed before the...

I'm really not sure if I'd recommend a stay at the Goha Hotel. It has a lot of good aspects, but some pretty serious negative ones as well. The first is that the Goha is located high on a hill overlooking town. This gives it a BEAUTIFUL view of the city, but it also makes it challenging to walk around.... More

The hotel lobby, bar, dining room and outdoor space are very nice. As is their gift shop, which had nice postcards and some interesting and well made souvenirs. We ate dinner there as well and it was good. However, I did not find the rooms to feel very clean, and it was very small for two people (mother and adult... More

A lovely place to stay (though a little hard to find the entrance). It was great to have adjoining rooms so the kids could have a room for themselves. The beds were brilliant. The meals were very tasty. Don't believe the review in Lonely planet as this hotel is much better than the review.
