I was booked into this hotel by a client who seemed to have some connection there. The check in process was a mess which I may have seen the funny side of if I had not been travelling for two days prior to arrival. The inability of the reception staff to check us in bordered on rudeness and an error... More

Good hotel in Gonder. Definitely better quality than most of the other hotels I stayed in Ethiopia. Best thing about the breakfast is that they had firfir in the buffet. Good location near city centre. Bar serves beer and the reception changes money for (when I did it) official exchange rates.

Good service. Good restaurant - better than other hotel restaurants in Gonder. Very nice and clean rooms and common areas. Wifi Breakfast is good and it's included (buffet style at least on the weekends). People complained that the beds are hard, but that's what is available in Ethiopia. It's a very comfortable bed thanks to ample pillows and soft, warm... More

The hotel is located centrally, and is close to the Royal Enclosure. The wifi, when it worked, was only available in the lobby. The breakfast was adequate only. The restaurant tried to force a fixed menu in the evening, but in the end allowed us to choose items off the fixed menu. White wine was not available by the glass,... More

Interesting town on the tourist route. Stayed here for 2 nights, very clean and honest, carelessly left sunglasses were rescued and retained for us. Go to the 4 sisters restaurant in the town for an entertaining meal, 8 minutes walk out of the rear door, you will need a torch!

I stayed at the Taye Hotel for 2 weeks in November whilst working again at the Hospital. Everyone at the Hotel was very kind and friendly. I had transport from the airport to the Hotel and back again provided by the Hotel which was a bonus. The Hotel was kept very clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and... More

It's not a bad place if you're into observing NGO- or UN-types saving the world via their laptops. The staff is friendly. But the place has all the personality of a mausoleum. One night here was enough--I bailed and stayed at a local guest house and was so much happier.

Although the hotel was under renovations it did not deter from their great hospitality and luxury. Staff could not do enough to please the group. Rooms all had large balconies overlooking the city - beautiful view during sunset and when city was lit up. It is situated withing walking distance from the business area of Gondar as well as the...

This is my third expereince at the hotel. I feel I need to remind people who are negative about this hotel to remember that you are staying in a third world developing country. I consider the hotel is very good and meets my needs during my stay, especially after spending time visiting the local hospital and community. I have always... More
