The manager is great. Will help you to the max. Knows everything and everybody. Free breakfast. The fried eggs are safe and super crispy with tasty bread. Ask for Nescafe. Can get traditional food as well as there is a kitchen. Has the largest church and mosque in Harar nearby, almost across the street. Reasonable price, everything is negotiable.

Harar is rather off the beaten path, so if you are looking for the 4 Seasons you are going to be sorely disappointed. But, if you are looking for warm Ethiopian hospitality and clean comfortable rooms this is the place! We stayed here for 2 nights with our 6 year old daughter. The room was cleaned immaculately each day. Our... More

We stayed in this nice, clean and good value hotel for a short visit to Harar. It is by no means a luxury hotel by Western standards, but it is very clean and in good repair. Hot water and even wifi. What makes the difference is the welcome and hospitality of the owners. Run by a family, everyone is charming... More

From my research, I established that accommodation options in Harar are extremely extremely limited. The pros of Winta: - Nice clean rooms, very new overall - hot water - great internet - good breakfast spread - staff are friendly and helpful! Even linked me up with some travellers with a car to get me free transport to the Babille livestock... More

Stayed here as a mid-thirties couple Jan 2016. Generally acknowledged as the best hotel in town (together with Ras according to some, but cannot compare as we only stayed in Winta). The price was in-line with mid-range accommodations in Ethiopia, being the best room we got in this range. Perfectly clean bed and sheets, working fridge in the room, complimentary... More

Winta Hotel hadn't been out first choice, because of its location but we were very happy that we ended up here. Daniel and his family were very welcoming from the moment we arrived -- the place has more the atmosphere of a family-run guest house than a hotel. ("Make yourself at home. ") Distance from the Old Town was never... More

You will not want for a bottle of water if you stay here, in the end we were turning them away! A very generous breakfast too, and on our last morning they gave us pancakes for the journey. Perhaps the three flights of stairs to the room may put some off but it gives you access to a well ventilated... More
