Stayed for three days as part of business trip. Strongly recommend the newer building. The rooms are newer and more comfortable, and the Wifi access is much better. The older building has pleasant outdoor sitting area for eating and drinking, as well as restaurant, which was very good. Newer building has buffet breakfast; do not know about the older building....

After our clamber up and down the Gheralta mountains this morning, it was a joy to stand under the deluge shower in this hotel and wash away the dirt. It seemed like we'd come back to the real world with a very nice, clean modern room, lots of hot water, and all the usual facilities one would expect. Everything worked...

The Axum was a very comfortable base for an 8-day stay in Mek'ele. I stayed in the new building, but enjoyed meals and drinks in the restaurant and bar in the older building. The hotel is staffed by friendly, courteous, helpful people who work very hard to make the visitor feel at home. My room was clean, comfortable, and fairly...

Staff were nice and helpful. Rooms are clean although basic , and really cold in December when the sun goes down. There were mats on the marble floor which were a death trap as there is no grip and you'll go right over! The most mental showers that are so over complicated. It looked like a space ship and buttons...

This hotel is made up of two buildings. The old building houses the bar and restaurant and the new building the best bedrooms and breakfast area. This is my seventh visit to the hotel. In Ethiopian standards it is fine but it would be criticised by UK standards for lack of hot water for showers and other minor irritations. You...

For first travelers the hotel location is near by the airport when you come down. The service is average. The service in all aspects needs review depend on the clients who were stayed at room and outdoor. When I was there every service is under my expectation. The restaurant, the room even the compound of the hotel need arrangements.Only staffs...

Because our booked hotel was overbooked we arrived late (10pm) at Axum hotel. We were not only still given a room but even still offered dinner even though normally the kitchen closes at 10pm. The room was basic and clean and the price of the hotel reasonable. Staff was very friendly. The breakfast could be improved by adding some more...
