You typical average hotel restaurant--perfect if it's storming out

I had a very boring pasta dish here, and based on my observations, no one was wowed by the food. Lots of self-important NGO-types here, but I have to say the staff was friendly enough. It's not a terrible place, but there are better restaurants in Gonder.

It should have been a delightful breakfast. Instead the serving staff acted like they were slopping the hogs when bringing hot food to the breakfast buffet. They didn't want to be there. I can't imagine buying a meal here at lunch or dinner. Eat at The Four Sisters, 5 minute walk away.

I treated my local family to an evening out which was made all the more special by the staff. They were all extremely helpful to us all and provided us with a really enjoyable meal. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

We ve stayed here twice now.Very central for things..Lovely accommodating staff. Great reception area where we could prepare for work. Lovely veranda to sit out and staff helped us move our chairs so we could sit there. Bedrooms basic but clean and comfortable. With a TV. The downside was we didn't have orange juice in the morning. May be not... More

I tried this twice in the course of three days: none of the choices are well prepared. The pasta is too overcooked, the pizza not very good. No good options. Bad atmopshere. Avoid

We heard that the Taye Hotel restaurant would offer very good European kitchen. After a lot of Ethiopian food we wanted to have something more familiar. The menue is rather simple and does not offer a lot of choice. Apart from pasta and pizza it does not offer a big choice. The food quality was ok, but we had better... More

We had two breakfasts and two dinners here when we stayed in the Taye Hotel. Nothing out of the ordinary. The important thing was that the food was friendly to foreigner's stomach. This was the first place we tried out kitfo with injera, and we were able to have it fully cooked!

Upstairs i the cafe you can grab one of their delicious fruit juices and snacks and reconnect with the world. The hotel is very clean, the staff is very attentive and its one of the... More
