Pros: * The food was excellent! We had most of our meals at the hotel for our eight day stay and most of it was wonderful. I've seen a few reviews saying that the breakfast was horrible, but that was not my experience. They had an omelette maker, eggs, fruit, injera, and "french toast" as well as fresh-squeezed juice. The... More

The hotel it's clean and organized, the personal is very kind. The location is good and the hotel has its own very safety parking. The Restorant is working 24h, that's good coz it's difficult to find food after 10pm around Gonder.

We had a great time staying at the Florida International Hotel. Our room was very spacious, and we had a balcony overlooking the road. We had great pizza from the restaurant. The pool was a bit too cold for me, but my daughter had a good time swimming for a little bit.

Flights were cancelled for 2 days because of a sand storm, yet despite calling more than a day in advance we were still charged full price for the rooms and meals. Requests from myself, the hotel manager in Addis and Expedia were all met with the same " too bad" attitude. Would never book there again!!!

In spite of staff's efforts, the hotel is problematic with air-conditioning, refrigerator, amenities and of course wi-fi, though this is usual all over the country. I believe the city's standards are higher and recommend to teh owners to improve it as a small contribution to country's friends.

Two things stand out - I was really looking forward to swimming in the lovely pool, one of the few on the tourist circuit, until I stuck my finger in and realized I'd need a wetsuit. Also, the bedside lamps and floor lamp in the room seemed to be for decor only as they lacked bulbs. Like most hotels in... More

I stayed with a friend at Florida International Hotel for one night. The hotel is well known by locals in Gondar and easy to find. Our room was clean and specious with a nice shower (24/7 hot water) and beds were comfortable. There is also a swimming pool which can be used. Whilst the rooms are good, we were very... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. When we checked in we were told we were lucky because the room we were getting had a key! The rooms have electronic door locks (with key cards). Maybe the key card making machine is broken or the batteries in the doors are dying. In any case, our door did lock and to... More

Hi, Florida Hotel seemed to be the best hotel in Gondar compared to others in town. I think the fact that government officials were staying there for a conference indicated this as well to me. There are plenty of staff who are willing to help or answer questions at the drop of a hat. Food options were plentiful and pretty... More

This hotel in intriguing. The facility is modern but it seems that nobody has spent any effort to maintain it after the infrastructure was put in. We got a double room which was small, included a hard bed, a desk, and ensuite toilets and bathtub. Everything was "almost right". The headboard of the bed was missing, the desk drawer did... More
