We stayed at Lucyland for our first trip to Ethiopia and will stay there every time from now on! We had a queen room and it was so spacious! Much larger than a normal hotel room. Our first night I made a bit of an "oops" and turned on the shower without pointing the shower head down and flooded the bathroom. They cleaned it right up and supplied me with more towels to make up for the ones I used when I tried to clean up myself! We can blame it on the jet lag right?
The food was SO good! I was so full after breakfast each morning. We had most of our meals there and this next time I will make sure I'm sharing with my husband because their portions are large.
The staff is so nice and welcoming. On our last morning I woke up way too early and just laid in bed. Later I told Mimi at the front desk that I couldn't sleep but I could hear music in the background and she said "that was me! I couldn't sleep either, you should have come down and talked with me!". You won't find those kinds of personal relationships at just any hotel.
The service was amazing and the drivers are so nice and accomodating.
Like I said, I can't imagine staying anywhere else!!
Oh and don't forget to check out the beautiful hut out back, so relaxing and beautifully decorated. You must ask for a free coffee ceremony...and drink all three cups! The last one is the "lucky" one. ;)
