I'm almost reluctant to write a review of this place because I want it all to myself! Sidama Lodge is perfect. The staff are all incredibly nice and attentive, the location is ideal, and the place actually has character! The hotel is filled with Ethiopian paintings, both traditional and modern, that are up for sale. It even hosts exhibitions from...
