    Simply put, everything is dated. I don't think anything has been modernized in 50 years, and what's there has had very little maintenance. My favorite were the night stands with built-in AM radios. Worse yet, the whole place smells like stale cigarette smoke. I give...More

    Pleasant staff, international restaurant and circular restaurant annexe serving Ethiopian food in the evenings. Comfortable beds, no free WiFi. Extensive grounds but few places to sit in the grounds. Generally in need of a makeover but adequate for a night or two.

    Rooms are not very expensive in Ghion, Around 60 USD per room. However for such a large event I suggest you contact them and ask for a special price.
