Absolutely I was surprised by its architectural style.The location is marvelous by its lake view.The area is so much spectacular and being there especially at the weekend is adding more experiences with locals and those coming from Addis and other areas. The area is surrounded by many creator lakes with beautiful and aquatic birds. The services in all aspects are... More

I'm being very generous with my rating as I really liked the design of the resort and the relaxing atmosphere of this weekend break. There's not a lot to do apart from walking and resting so two days should be enough to get a good sense of the place. We went kayaking as well which was a really good experience... More

We've been to Kuriftu Debre Zeit a few times and despite what seems to be a consistently long check in process, the place is well worth it. The entire place is just a wonderful environment. Traditional style rooms and furniture are built using local materials; wood, leather and stone, you must see the ceilings. The spa services are the best... More

In spite of the little details that can be easily corrected, this place is a fantastic option if you want to see a little bit more of Ethiopia without going too far from Addis. The property is huge and you seem to walk for a while before reaching the restaurant or the rooms. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable,... More

We spent a weekend there with our kid. We were received well and staff are keen to help you with your luggage, always. The rooms of the old Ressort are a bit dark, many of them without lake view. The newer part of the resort has really nice, larger huts, big beds, well gardened outdoor area and great view. Staff... More

I would give it 0 star if I can. I am comparing it only with other hotels in Ethiopia not even the US. To begin with their sauna, steam and Jacuzzi don't work. No hot water in the room. Room service takes an hour to get to you. They only give you small tissue paper for the rest room. Bad... More
