I have to begin by saying that I am usually pretty easy to please and this is the first negative review that I have ever written. I was booked into the Winta Hotel but having experienced the rude, abrupt and greedy manner in which I was dealt with by the owner/manager I paid a cancellation fee and changed to the... More

Stayed at this hotel twice now. Right outside of town and close to family homes. Nice, clean rooms, great staff, and incredibly helpful owner. Dani is a hands-on, motivated owner and goes above and beyond for his guests. He made us feel welcome and treated us like family on our second trip. He arranged a last minute breakfast for 11...

After having spent an awful night in an underground room at Ras Hotel, Winta was such a relief! Which does not mean it is a good hotel, but everything is relative. At least it is brighter, the rooms cleaner, the shower was functioning, there was WiFi (intermittently) at the reception (and NOT in the rooms as was claimed by the... More

I happened to arrive at this hotel without reservation. The owner told me a would have a single room at 570 birrs for the next day. When I told him it was too expensive, he answered me : " Don't worry, we'll find an arrangement. On the next day I showed up and asked for a proposition. He proposed me... More

We stayed here for two nights. The room was large and somewhat clean if you did not open the curtain and see that the windows and sills had not been washed since it opened. The light switches had black streaks and the walls could have been wiped down in a few places. The bed was OK but the sheets thread-bare... More

I don't quite know where to start with this review! The room was big, clean with attached bathroom and large balcony. Harar had had no electricity for a week when we stayed and the hotel shut off their generator at 9pm so there was no TV after that and none in the morning. No chance to shower either. The staff...

Anyone looking into lodging in Harar knows that there are few hotels that offer creature comforts. If you’re looking for a bit more than just a place to rest your head, Winta Hotel will be the place for you. It is located right at the entrance to the New Town. (Turn left at the Total Gas Station at the rotary... More
