Stayed there principally for the reported pool and spa neither of which has yet been completed. Room looked like something out of the 1950s. Bathroom shower curtain rod fell when I hung a towel on it. Lights went out while I was showering and didn't come back on for 15 minutes. Bathroom window facing the hallway was covered with newspaper... More

Spent two nights in room 213. "For any request please press 9" the room sign says. But, the phone does not work. The lobby is nice with good wifi. The room were probably nice when they were new, but now they are dingy, with broken furniture. The room was cramped with too much furniture. There's a TV and a minibar.... More

Myself and a friend made Taye Hotel our home for 8 weeks whilst we worked at the local hospital. I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and its staff, all of whom went out of their way to look after us during our stay. The rooms were spotlessly clean and spacious, and the service and food provided by the... More

I stayed here for two weeks while volunteering at Gondar Hospital. I realized that every person in the hotel was helpful including the upper management. I cannot say the same for any hotel i've been in my life. The staff and front desk also had no problem in helping me with my questions while I was learning Amharic. The food... More

The Taye Belay Hotel is one of the best hotels in Gondar, Ethiopia. It is situated in the heals of Gondar City in the north of Ethiopia. Though the rooms are too small ,for a hotel this big, they are neat and relaxing some how. services are almost poor

We stayed here before and after our trek to the Simien Mountains. From the restaurant setup, the hotel seems to cater to big groups though was pretty deserted on our visits. It had an expansive common area on the ground floor. The 4th floor balcony room was great and well worth trying to get. The menu was a set menu... More

For a large hotel, this had a very friendly feel to the place. Buffet lunch and breakfast were both amongst the best meals we had on our trip throughout northern Ethiopia - and represented very good value for money into the bargain. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Good location, close to castles & palaces. Well-worth considering.
