We visited two nights in a row. A stunning setting looking out over the stellae fields and food was good both times. Wine relatively expensive but beer was cheap. Friendly staff.

Great location on the hill overlooking Aksum and the Stele park. Good food and wine selection, a chill place for food or drink.

We didn't stay at this hotel but walked over for a sunset meal. The food is slightly expensive, we're budget travellers, but the view made it worth it! If you can't afford the food, go for a drink. It's a short but uphill walk for the stelae.

I go to yeha hotel often in Axum. But today I was very disaapointed in this hotel. After we ate dinner there, we paid money 700birr. The price was 683birr. Then the waitress came to us then said we paid 605birr. We checked the money exactly before paying. I think they thought we were drunk...that's why they cheated us..How they... More

This may not be the worst hotel in Ethiopia, but it must come close. Dirty room, stained sheets, awful food, and mosquito netting that's full of holes. And this was in the top-of-the-range suites, the only rooms with double beds (Others are all twin singles) The restaurant food is similarly lacking, and it took us 5 pairs of cups and... More

Very good view down to the Stelae and the Tsion church but weirdly empty of any other customers at lunch time. Wifi worked fine, staff friendly and I had a perfectly adequate steak sandwich.

My wife and I visited Ethiopia last month. We were fortunate enough to explore the ancient ruins located in Aksum, Ethiopia. This hotel is central to the ruins, and an easy walk to the center of town. We had a comfortable room. Nothing fancy, but just basic. It was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The dining room overlooked the... More

Just about a perfect place for a meal or just a drink. Service some of the best we've had in Ethiopia. Goat tibs are really great here.

My pasta dish was nice that we had at the restaurant. We decided to share a bottle of Kamilla wine as the South African wine we wanted was out of stock. It was off, so obviously choose the beer and not the Ethiopian wine if sold out. The dip and bread was nice that was served as a starter. The... More

Had a nice dinner of fasting food around sunset. Nice large patio with a great view of the stela field. They have wine, beer, liquor, but the prices seemed a bit high. I had an avocado juice that was nice and thick.
