I spent two nights at Quara with three friends. We were generally pleased with the new facilities, although one had a leaking pipe in the bathroom and some members of our group felt that they were disturbed by the loudspeakers of the early morning service in a nearby church. The view from our rooms of central and southern Gonder was... More

There was definitely an effort to keep the service here to a higher standard. At this price point the room was very good. However the room I was in for a night shares a window with the one below it so it almost feels as though sharing the room with my downstairs neighbors. I could hear everything, (The first time...

I got a very big room with views to the inner court, where the restaurant and the bar are located, so it was noisy until they closed at night. Furniture and bed cover were a little bit run-down but nothing to complain about. After having a shower, there was water coming out from under the cubicle for some time but... More

We did not stay at the hotel, but only ate in the restaurant. The view of the piazza is wonderful. Hungry for home, we ordered beer and pizza. Good pizza, though a bit different from American. And of course the St. George brew is good. It was a nice place to gather with friends outdoors above the town.

The hotel is in the centre of Gondar but extremely noisy especially as the mass starts at around 6am and is on loud speakers! The rooms were ok and fairly clean but the bathroom had hardly any shower water and never hot, I had to change rooms as the first room had no water at all coming from the shower.... More

The hotel Quara is pretty poor. The rooms are dirty, badly maintained (the shower door fell off when I tried to use the shower ), and the bed And bedding smelt of the many other people who had slept there before. The 6 am mass is also very loud if you don't have to get up at 6 am.

I can hardly believe that this is the "best" hotel in town! It is completely run down. The rooms are clean but nothing special. The "hydromassage" shower must be a joke!!! The restaurant offers food in can if I judge our "tomato soup"! The court in the middle of the hotel is very noisy and looks more like a garage.... More
