“Average in Ethiopia But Clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

The hotel is OK. Its cheap and it does the job after a long day on the roads of Omo Valley. The hot water is functional. The beds have nets and the restaurant on property is decent. The electricity is only on at night and no internet.

The rooms are clean and there is enough hot water to wash off all the dust from the trails. The beds are typical Ethiopian style and there is no aircon. The service while pleasant is not in any hurry to do much but this is outer Ethiopia and the pace of life is different.

There is a nice garden around the grounds. The hotel was safe and it is a decent place to rest up before your next journey.

I've stayed at many of the tourist hotels in Jinka, and this one is by far the most beautifully landscaped. Jinka is a dry, dusty place and the greenery goes a long way to making a pleasant stay.

The 12 or so rooms are good by Jinka standards, with 24 hour electricity and hot water. Showers and toilets are ensuite. Beds are firm and comfortable and the mosquito nets are intact.

There is now a restaurant serving breakfast/lunch/dinner, and is comparable to other Jinka tourist hotel restaurants.

I think the property began as a camp site, as there was a big group of overlanders with tents pitched in the grassy area during my stay.

For me, the best option in Jinka.

The lovely, neat garden is the first thing you'll notice at this property. There are 5 rooms--each neat and clean with good mosquito nets and comfortable beds. Hot showers (dependent upon the availability of electricity) make this property the best place to stay in Jinka. No food is available here yet, but the owner is building a kitchen for future breakfasts. Camping is also available. Phone: [--] email: [--]
