We stayed in this hotel for overnight. Great customer service at the bar and restaurant. The view was neat from the patio. The bathroom light was not working. We informed the front desk and they did nothing about it. They did not even say sorry for the inconvenience.

Quite an ugly hotel but rooms good and service great. Close to hotels. Good massage. Food not very good, seem to have difficulty making western food. Do not order the club sandwich! And if you order a cappuccino make sure you ask for coffee in it!

We stayed here for two nights, during our trip to the north. Although it is touted as THE hotel in Gonder and is apparently the place where all the big shots and UN/NGO staff hang out, it was quite average. The reception staff and the management are super friendly, which is great to compensate for the state of the rooms.... More

After a 3 day trek in the Simien Mountains it was wonderful to have a lovely comfortable bed with lots of soft pillows, a hot shower, room service and some good movie channels to collapse for the night!

A very friendly staff and a quiet hotel with good quality room and shower. We enjoyed our stay on the west side of the hotel building with the best view of the sunset. Also the view from the terrace is unbeatable. My husband and myself enjoyed our stay in Gondar.

Sorry, but this place is not a great option in Gondar. First of all the noise. I was there for two nights and both nights noise from the streets, barking dogs (for hours) was unbearable. Two others in my group had to be moved because the toilets were not working in their rooms. Lastly the buffet food was almost inedible.... More

I was booked into this hotel by a client who seemed to have some connection there. The check in process was a mess which I may have seen the funny side of if I had not been travelling for two days prior to arrival. The inability of the reception staff to check us in bordered on rudeness and an error... More
