Stayed for 4 days on a short business trip. Good 1. The staff are very polite and willing to assist with anything. 2. I liked the food. Especially the vegetables. I find it hard to ever get well cooked vegetables in Ethiopia. 3. Rooms are spacious. I could comfortably do my home workout aerobics in the room. Bad 1. Staff... More

Was here for the Timket festival. When our group went to the festival the hotel stripped the rooms so there were no towels to take a shower when we returned. No toilet paper. Whenever requested something from the front desk they said they would send someone up but no one ever showed up. Front desk clerk was unorganized and over... More

I had a very comfortable stay. It was very noisy in the afternoon when some revellers were using the swimming pool, but quiet when the pool was not in use. I am not sure about the location, but the sights were easy enough to reach by Bajaj. Breakfast buffet was good: not great, but pretty good – cornflakes, waffles, injera,... More

The hotel looks nice. It is clean. The rooms are nice and there is a pool. There are numerous failings though. It is too far of town. Don't let the fake dot on Google maps fool you. There is another one even further out. It is only 20br in a tuk tuk into the centre though. Not the end of... More

Great hotel with very attentive service - the manager was quite helpful and eager to sort out any minor inconveniences. Maybe slightly expensive for Gondar but not a bad deal. This hotel is a little far away from the town-center and the attractions, especially the Debre Berhane church. A decent breakfast is included in the hotel price. Would recommend other... More

I only spend one night in this hotel in a single room. The room was comfortable, clean and there was a good wifi connection in the lobby. I didn't eat in the hotel, not even breakfast so I can't tell anything about that. I did use the shuttle to the airport, without any problems. The staff was very friendly and... More

Spent 2 nights here in October 2014. Room completely bare bones on 2nd floor, wifi would only work if I walked into the hallway and some how 'carried' the signal back into the room, but too far in and it's dropped. No A/C, but weather was mild during the time I was there and unlike another traveler I did not... More

Apparently, the hotel was built as a luxurious one, with a functioning elevator, but was run down since. Our twin room was spacious, but the bathroom door was lopsided and did not close. The towels and the linen were clean, but yellowish and threadbare. Functioning wifi. No AC nor insect screens on the windows and lots of mosquitoes.

Great clean hotel. Staff is great. Phones didn't work but everything else was very good. Pool was incredibly crowded. Breakfast was delicious. Beds are extremely comfortable and shower very hot. Did a great job with my laundry.
