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.

When choosing a hotel in a foreign city I look for a clean, reasonable and friendly hotel. The Florida Hotel in Gondar has all of these qualities and more. This was my 5th trip to Gondar. I hve tried toher places and indeed wound up transfering to the Florida Hotel in the middle of a prior trip. The staff is... More

Bed was HARD (extra, extra - firm doesn't accurately describe it). In my single room, the bathroom lay-out was strange. When the door was opened, I did not see the sink at first - the sink is hidden behind the door when it is opened. Beware - to keep the door from hitting the lip of the sink, there is... More

The hotel is on the main road from the airport to the town, so a good location for access but horribly noisy if you're in one of the rooms at the front of the hotel - traffic, people and music on the hotel terrace and loud music from the bars around the hotel - so you're woken up at 6am... More
