i am an experienced world traveler of mature years - picky, but not overly so, who does a lot of reaserch before my travels, so i am generally pleased with my accommodation choices.
this is THE place to stay in abra minch. stay nowhere else. perched on the cliff crest, overlooking the jungle, mountains, and 2 lakes, iat is spectacular. there is a choice of the pricier view-tukals or the no-view ones. all of the view ones were taken as i was here in january and didn't make my reservation far enough in advance and there are many little tour groups here. i was disappointed but it turned out ok with it in the end as the tukal i had was quite luxurious, well, kind of, anyway, and one spends one's time on the dining room/bar terrace with the view so one doesn't really need th view n onew's own tukal. food was great. service was great. no barking dogs or wailing mullahs. an ATM in the lobby - how rural ethiopia has grown up !! it can be a bit of a hike from your tukal to the dining area, let alone the reception, but just deal with it. the reception was vague, and a bit confused, and i could see how some of the other reviewers could have had some problems. so i would reconfirm everything with the manager every day for a week before arriving. get his name.
