We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. It is fairly cheap (we paid 200 BIRR/ €8 for a night for a room including bathroom) and to get to the center you only have to walk 5 to 10 minutes. The boiler was shared so we only had a hot shower early in the morning. The room was small but... More

Good location (although dark streets when returning in the evening), friendly staff, clean rooms (by Ethiopian standards), clean linens, television and en suite with a hot shower for 200 ETB/night. I was accommodated in a twin room for the single price (due to availability on the first night) and moved to a smaller single room on my second night.

We stayed there for two nights, it was cheap and clean and the bathroom was ok by Ethiopian standards, which you get used to. However, one night we were woken up by a woman screaming for ages, sounded like she was being beaten. The next morning we asked and they said she was a thief who had broken in ...... More

It was one of the cheapest places in Gonder that's why we picked Queen Taitus Pension. We did not expect a lot and actually liked the place for the first night... but besides a not really working toilet (but that is not unusual in the cheaper hotels) there must have been flees in one of the beds... That's why we... More

We stayed for one night at this hotel after it was suggested by the guy organising our Simien trek. The room was tiny, barely bigger than the bed but was clean. We specifically asked for hot water and indeed the water was very hot but unfortunately there was no cold water so we were unable to have a shower in... More

When booking this place in Gonder I should have guessed by the fact no-one had reviewed it in half a year that something was up. When we arrived we were checked in by a lovely, smiley guy who showed us to the room, proved the water was working then left us to wash up and rest before registering and paying.... More

Pretty good for budget accommodation in Gonder. Room with one double bed is 200 birr, and it's usually fairly clean and quiet. The male receptionists/managers can be a little creepy. But the location is good. The Crown Pension next door is pretty good too, but more expensive.
