This hotel offers nearly good rooms, at least above average in this price range. The place is quiet and Staff is helpfull, they changed my room when I saw that my toilet flushing was out of order. What was not cool : - there are no bins in every room so your room is a wasteland after 2 days. -...

For the price of 400 Birr (May 2016) it's definitely a good choice of budget hotel close to the city center. The stuff is friendly and there is a lovely garden. Rooms are nicely decorated, have hot water (although there is not that much water coming out). Stuff can organize a shuttle to the airport (100 Birr pro person and...

Myself and a friend I had been travelling with for a couple of weeks arrived in Lalibela having taken the 3 day local buses strung together option from Aksum. More than a bit worn out we were happy to find room at the Asheton, and also to meet Ejigu. He gave us our room and later proved invaluable in booking...

When we arrived, we were all impressed by the nice courtyard. However, the condition of the bathroom disgusted us after we checked in, and the wifi was pathetic...The boiler in our room was leaking making funny noises. We requested to change room, but the new room had a very small water pressure. After knowing our next day plan, the manager...

It's one of the cheaper hotels in town, 16 rooms and it's in a good location. there's hot water, but you can't cool it down. there's wifi but it doesn't reach the rooms, the restaurant isn't great and definitely overpriced.

We only stayed at the Asheton for one night. Arrived pretty late from Mekele and despite having reserved a double room over the phone earlier in the day, were told that the only room left didn't have a working lock and did that matter? Of course it did matter, so we went for a twin room but the bathroom didn't...

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The rooms are clean, hot shower works, but gives a small and too hot drizzle which wasn't really comfortable. But for this price we couldn't complain, had to bargain a lot though. Didn't have breakfast here, but heard others who said it was too expensive for what it was. Staff was helpful and...

The inside courtyard is peaceful, it is ideally located for visiting the churches, but the hotel lack of maintenance. The rooms are not cleaned everyday, some rooms have no water pressure at all, we had to change room. The restaurant is poorly lit and took forever for a plate of plain rice. But overall i would say it is ok...

Let me preface this by saying we stayed at the Asheton in Nov 2014. But, it seems that hotels in Ethiopia are almost always in worse condition after a year a two. Anyway, it would have been fine (not great, not terrible) except that we discovered bed bugs in our room. Guests in at least one other room had the...

My room, like the facility, had character. Garden is charming; common room had nice decor but also a TV on all the time. The bathroom had a water leak in the shower that had been incompetently patched, so water ran down the wall and onto the floor constantly. Other times, there was no water at all besides a provided bucket-full....
