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

it' s simple but clean. Very nice garden to have breakfast or relax. Beautiful view on the hills. From the hotel you easily can reach the churches site on foot. The personnel is friendly and helpful. Just make sure that the tab drain works well....

I stayed in a double room in the 'new block' and was generally very impressed with the cleanliness of the room and the bathroom - which even had a nice big bath! Staff were generally friendly and helpful, although only the Manager had good English. Main criticisms were minor things, such as one tatty/torn pillow case and inaccurate descriptions on... More

We stayed here at the end of May and were the only guests in the entire hotel. We payed $25/night for a double room that was clean, had comfortable (if squeaky) beds and hot water. The manager, Fikeru, did warn us that we might have problems with the hot water, but we never did in the 2 nights we were... More
