Spent two nights here. All the rooms have a view of the breathtaking mountain range. Our room had a quite large balcony which was private and not over-looked. Lovely and peaceful to just sit and take in the view. Many lovely birds around too. Saw a couple of green parakeets in a nearby tree. The hotel also has a large...

I almost lost my wife ! Fortunately she was more Lucky than Claude François! The wire of our table lamp was 'repaired ' with a scotch ,that means they were aware of the problem,and when my wife touched it she had a strong electric shock. This would be only an accident if the hotel management would have behaved in a...

Beautiful and Clean. Stunning view of the evening sky and sunset. Open and airy, with comfortable seating to use wifi or look at the TV. Simply tell the chef you food preferences and you will be accommodated. Sit on the balcony of your room, read a good book and watch the sunset. I liked the fact that I have no...

If you want an experience that is amazing, Mountain View is the place. The view is breath taking during the day and especially at night. It is the opportunity to to see every star in the sky. The staff is very attentive. The food is fantastic. The Keita and local honey was superb. The Margherita pizza was fresh and delicious.

A great hotel in Ethiopian terms, fine, clean and basic rooms in Western ones. The view is no less that breathtaking, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. It's a bit far to walk from the city center, but a short bajaj travel would bring you to the right place. Note that this hotel offers free wifi that also...

The best feature of this hotel is the view from the rooms over the valley, spectacular. Rooms are fairly basic but serve the purpose. Drinking water is not supplied in the room. The bathroom has hot water but beware as cleaning staff turned ours off during the day and we didn't realise until we wanted a shower that night and...

The good was ok minus. But the price was a lot to high for the value of the good. In adition there was a misanderstanding with one of the dishes and we recived a disrespectful treatment from the head water. In jeneral not recomended at all.
