We stayed a night here to see the castles,churches in Gonder then to the Simeins. Food is good,we like the breakfast buffet. The view of the whole city from here is great. Didn't use the swimming pool though. Got decent shower and beds are regular. Service is good.

We really wanted to have a nice dinner here and some drinks while enjoying the view. And maybe a quick swim in the pool. But when we arrived, the staff told us in quite an arrogant way that the pool is only for hotel guests (nobody was using it) - unless we pay 200 birr per person. 200 birr! They... More

We only stayed one evening. Our room was comfortable and the bathroom was adequate, better than a few others, where we stayed. There is no TV, which for one evening we did not really need and no safety deposit box....not a big issue but would have been nice to have. There is no air conditioning but the temperatures go down... More

The hotel is very well located at city center. The service is basic. The staff are friendly but lack professionalism.The place can be taken if one is not up to high standard room amenties and food variety.

Stayed only one night as part of business/adventure trip. the staff couldn't be more helpful and the stuff I asked them to assist me with was never a problem. the restaurant and food was served as a set menu but was ample and tasty. beer and wine cheap enough. Views from this hotel are stunning over the panorama of the... More

The Hotel is situated atop a mountain looking down at the city of Gonder from end to end. The Hotel is very comfortable and offers quality service. It has a small pool right on the edge of the hill. The food and drink options are plentiful. Everything makes you forget the long drive up the mountain.
