I booked my stay via e-mail from Virginia and was pleasantly surprised that Assefa replied to all of my messages inquring about room size, cost, etc. My son and I stayed at the Lodge for a week. Loved the daily breakfast items, including the fresh juices. Staff took good care of me when I fell ill after the third day. They checked in on me several times a day, brought me juices, ordered and paid for food from nearby restaurants and allowed me to pay them back at checkout. Our rooms were always clean and it was great to have fridge and microwave. The area is safe and lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Taxi cabs are on standby just around the corner, a bank also within walking distance for exchanging $$$. Everyone was courteous and friendly and I will especially remember Assefa and Yodit!
One suggestion for improvement is to install fans in the rooms (bedrooms and sitting room). I was able to open the windows but that just let in mosquitoes. A window screen may solve the latter problem.
