“AG Hotel - by far the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Despite its uninspiring name, we found to our surprise that the AG Hotel is the best hotel in Gondar. Yet the prices are modest. The accommodation is as good as the best hotels in Addis Ababa. Spotless large rooms, modern bathrooms, hot water no problem, fast wi-fi, excellent restaurant (probably the best in Gondar), good breakfast, quiet, and first-class service. Back-up generator, and close to the city centre. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, whether tourist or business trip. The rooms are better than the Goha, which is more expensive. Incidentally I don't know why Tripadvisor classifies it as a 'BB or inn'. It is a fully-fledged hotel.

Room Tip: No particular tips. So far as I could see, all the rooms are quiet, large and well-lit.

Dear Ian C:

Thank you for choosing AG Hotel and hopefully your trip to Gondar was a great one. We are glad you enjoyed the modern rooms, bathrooms, endless hot water, fast wi-fi, excellent restaurant, tasty breakfast, dependable and endless electricity and water service, and first-class service. We are working with Tripadvisor to properly classify our hotel as a "hotel" and not as a 'BB or inn'. You are absolutely correct and thanks for getting the word out, we are a fully-fledged hotel.
Thanks,
Management

If you are ever in Gondar, Ethiopia you must stay at the AG Hotel! Everything from the staff, rooms, restaurants, and decor; this hotel is a must see! You will not be disappointed at all. I stayed at the AG Hotel in July several days after the official grand opening and I was very impressed. The staff is beyond helpful and friendly. The decor in the hotel is very modern and decorated very nicely! From the restaurant, to the accessible Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, I have no complaints whatsoever. The hotel is within walking distance to local restaurants, coffee shops, shopping market, and tourist sites. I will definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of days and I am coming back. The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comforting. I had no issues with accomplishing work tasks since the WIFI is fast. And the laundry facility and nice shops within the hotel was a plus. Overall just a great hotel and located at the heart of Gondar.

We stayed at AG hotel with my family in August 2013. The hotel had just openend 1 month prior and I have to say it is the best hotel I've stayed in Gondar. The cleanliness and the modern amenities rival those of the best Addis Ababa hotels. No power outage because of the backup generator,wifi everywhere in the hotel, even out in the terrace.
