My wife and I only stayed one night but it was so excellent I feel I must write a review. The view from the top floor was great. Everything in the hotel was spotlessly clean, it even smelled clean, and we were impressed with the staff we met. I can’t comment on the food as we ate elsewhere. We definitely... More

We visited during Christmas (Jan. 5-7th nights) so the town was slam packed. Fikeru, the owner, responded to my email in advance and communicated often and promptly with me, reserving a room without any required deposit and just trusting that I would show up. He eased my concerns stemming from the fact that all hotels book up for these nights... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel. It was booked by our tour operator from Addis Ababa as part of our budget package. A pleasant surprise, The rooms were spacious & clean. The bathroom only had a hand-held shower inside the bath, but no place to attach it to the wall. This is not anything to complain about. For the... More

The small hotel has a new wing, where rooms has a great balcony (or garden connection) with a view. The rooms are clean and bright, the staff are helpfull and speaks English. Blackout can happen. For this price this can be the best option in town. Recommended!

We spent 4 nights at the hotel. It was clean and comfortable with a good view on the 3rd level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We booked our Church guide through the hotel who was a very good guide. The food was good although juice was supposed to be available, it never was while we were there. The... More

The hotel itself is nicely located and the breakfast is good, but we weren't really overwhelmed by the hotel manager. Because of the fact that one of the door locks in our room didn't work, we kindly asked if it was possible to change rooms. However, this was not really well appreciated by the manager, on the contrary, he was... More

Really enjoyed my stay here: ended up extending an extra night. Room was very clean for the price range and was good value. We were here in the rainy off-season and paid about $25/night for our room (#103) with a double bed and a twin. Hot water and bathtub in the room (hot water worked, but had to turn on... More

This hotel is located very close (easy walking distance) to the church complex, which is its main advantage. The room was clean, the staff friendly and the breakfast definitely passable. On the downside, we were without electricity for a long time which was a bit difficult, although apparently that was a problem in the whole town not the hotel, and... More
