This hotel is very old and the rooms are bad. The bathrooms are dirty and smelly, the electrical connectors are dangerous. The location is good, staff are okay and the garden is lovely so a night can be survivable. The are differences among rooms, so check more.

This hotel is really central- close to a lot of good restaurants and coffee places. Also its location right on the lake means theres tons of great birds hanging out in the garden, and it also gives it a very peacful feeling even though it is on the main road. The rooms are big and clean- some don't have mosquito... More

We stayed at this hotel last month for 2 nights, the hotel is shouting for repair and renovation but the owner seems happy with what ever money he is making out of it. The rooms are too old, cracked wall, doors, windows etc, bath room infested by mold has changed it's color. It is located by the lake side and... More

First of all, nothing bad can be said about location and lovely garden. The rooms are a bit old, but still acceptable for the price we paid. There is sometimes even some wifi if you are lucky. But don't trust the boatguy. He informed us about his price, that was more expensive than all the others we met in the... More

We stayed at Ghion Hotel for two nights and I don't think we would come back. The rooms are spacious but everything in the room is old and shabby. The furniture is broken, the mosquito net had some holes, the wall was coming down and the ceiling looked like it was about to collapse every minute. We were promised hot... More

Ghion hotel has an amazing location on the shores of lake Tana and a very nice garden. But unfortunately i am not sure it is now enough to convince people to stay. Prices change all the time and are quite high for the level of rooms and bathroom available. Bathrooms with holes and exposed pipes, falling piece of walls and... More

If you're after something cheap this is perfect. Also the Sky Bus to Addis Ababa leaves from here at 5.30am so good if you're headed back that way. The food is terrible though. The staff are friendly, good waiters and excellent massage available on site for 200 Birr. Room prices seem to be plucked from thin air though - we... More

The hotel's location is sensational, a short walk is the local market and the city centre and the the back of the hotel is lake Tana. The grounds are beautiful with loads of beautiful flowers, plants and great spots to read a book or just relax, especially the lake view which is just blissful. With that being said, those are...

We paid 350 Birr (about $18) for a double room. The hotel garden is beautiful, hotel has Wi-Fi (in the garden, but not in the rooms), but hotel itself is quite run down, and not very comfortable. We didn’t even take a shower there. When we arrived, two of us were offered a boat ride for $60 per person! And... More

Ghion hotel in Bahir Dar is a budget hotel set on beautiful Lake Tana. The rooms are in buildings that surround a beautiful garden. Restaurant menu is reasonably priced (I only had breakfast there, but I thought it was good). I paid about $16/night for single with ensuite bathroom. The restaurant/cafe area is right along the lake, and it is... More
