The family and staff here are just so helpful and friendly...they can't do enough to make sure you are feeling at home, with your greetings on arrival and departure to every outing. The food is just wonderful, 'though often too much of it. You're only a short walk to the town and key sights, being surrounded by many churches. The...

We came here twice to eat. Once at lunch time, where we've had the fasting buffet (120 birr per person). The variety and quality of the dishes was for sure the best we've had in three weeks Ethiopia. Unfortunately the tables are under trees and three times our table was hit by birds... Better try and sit under one of...

The highlight of the hotel is the location, just behind the royal enclosure with the best palaces of ancient Gondar. The center of the city is also at hand, though it doesn't offer much to see. The hotel in itself is definitely not appealing: small, old and shabby rooms with little daylight and less electric light (one dim lamp on...

We spent only one night at the Fasil Lodge Hotel but it was good and so much nicer and more friendly than the other hotel in which we had stayed at Gondar. Pretty basic but that was reflected in the price and the staff were lovely and the large garden at the back was magical with the huge bird's nest...

Lovely hotel, just the way we like it. In the back of a nice garden under a huge tree, with a good garden restaurant in front. Quiet and clean, very friendly staff. The owner is super forthcoming and always ready to help. We felt welcome here and warmly recommend this place.

We went to Gondar during Timket celebration in January and stayed in this cool lodge, close to the castle and situated very close to the center of the city. They have a restaurant where you can have traditional dishes or pizza. The staff and the owner were very friendly. I recommend to book in advance if you wish to stay...

I did not make a reservation beforehand. At 35 USD, it was a fair deal with the bathroom and conditions of the room better than most other accomodation i stayed at in Ethiopia. The restaurant in the hotel is also descent and has a very nice patio area. Sometimes the restaurant was so busy though and the waitresses didnt always...

It is by far the best accomodation in the center of Gondar. It is right next to the Royal Enclosure. The rooms are clean and spacious. The water heater works well. The service very friendly and the restaurant excellent. Prices are quite reasonable. The wifi Works fairly well too.

Lovely place to stay in Gondar, friendly, helpful staff. Large clean rooms with warm water etc. 10 minutes walk to castle entrance and the area close by is great for an afternoon stroll and souvenir buying. Nice restaurant set back from road in a garden.
