We organised a 4 day trek through the Simien mountains with the lodge and they stored our luggage while we were on the trek. There was a standard breakfast of egg, toast and fruit. The room was comfortable and...

Had an amazing time here at the Lodge du Chateau. The rooms were clean and very well maintained. The staff was absolutely incredible. If for only that reason you should stay here. They went out of their way to make our stay and time in Gonder great. They even helped us find places and were willing to walk us there...

A little gem in Gondar - delightfully friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, a cute terrace to watch sunset and sunrise, a delicious breakfast including some of the nicest bread we had in Ethiopia. Owned by Seyoum, who organised us a fantastic 2 week trip (one week in the South, in the Omo River Valley, Turmi, Konso, Arba Minch) and...

But to be entirely honest, I have to...

This is a cosy little hotel just behind the Fasil Ghebbi and within easy striking distance of the town centre. It has a great little terrace area for breakfast and evening drinks with excellent views towards the hills in the south east. Run by a close-knit team of staff, led by Simon the owner, they made my visit very relaxed...

Right next door to the Fasil Ghebbi castles. Although the rooms have little light and the showers are not great, the staff were really kind and helpful and the fantastic breakfast on the elevated terrace was a highlight. We also arranged our drive to Bahar Dar with Simon the manager and this was a fantastic trip - we stopped at...

Very nice hotel: perfect location to visit the castles, excellent breakfast on a terrace with a beautiful view over the country and the staff is very nice and facilitates everything. Rooms are simple but clean and pleasant, and are located around a charming garden.
