“Great Little Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The rooms are not big but they are clean and comfortable! We had hot water which was nice! The staff was very friendly and the service was great! The breakfast buffet was good! They also have W-FI in the Lobby! This is not a 5* but it was more than we were expecting for our first trip to Ethiopia !!

I've been staying at Semien for shorter and longer periods from 2009 to the present (November 2012). The hotel always had a congenial atmosphere, friendly and with an easy going feeling among the staff. The rooms are now overhauled and kept clean and functional. There is wifi - but it reaches only as far as the lobby. The small business centre has most of what you need for a business trip - fax, copier, computers. The hotel is located within easy reach of Mercato, close to the old city centre of Piazza and the old post office but quite a bit from the flashy places along the Bole road. The hotel is consquently not frequented by the beautiful people but mostly by Ethiopian business men and Ethiopian families. Its buffet lunches and dinners are widely appreciated. The "foreign" menu is OK but not spectacular.

Room Tip: Choose a room towards the back to avoid street noises. Religious noises from evangelical and orthodo...
