The beginning of our stay was really rough. The stuff could not find our reservation and let us chose between a room with no toilet and a room in a construction site. You could imagine how angry we were. To our luck, the whole hotel crew were on a two week intense "service seminar" by a lovely and talented Dutch...

I have traveled to his lodge almost after 11 years and I was quite impressed how they have invested a lot on perfection. on top of the wonderful scenery, I have appreciated the lodge for their safety standards. The room I have stayed gave me a reminder how I used to lock my family's house back when I was a...

Great location and service was very good. We visited for dinner - I thought the menu was nothing special and the food was OK - nothing better than you would get in a lower class hotel. The restaurant seating area was large and very comfortable.

It is one of the most amazing places I've ever visited. It has the most amazing view of the Nech-sar national park, and the two lakes Abaya and Chamo. Seeing the mountain that separated the two lakes is a wonder. The food, accommodation, and service are all top quiality

This is Ethiopia. I know that. I set my expectations accordingly. I chose the Paradise Lodge because it was the best in the area. But, yet, everything is relative. I had my tour guide book the hotel. As a solo traveler I was giving the smallest room they had, but had I known more I would have paid the extra...

The rooms were booked by our tour guide, and we had requested rooms near the reception. Instead we were given rooms at the far end of the row, which made the walk to the restaurant and back almost 1,5km. The interior was very different from the pictures on the site. Instead of making the best of the view and space,...

As with all things in Ethiopia, I know to manage my expectations. But was still disappointed to arrive and it take 4 people to check me in (evidently don't book through Booking.com) and then be given the absolute furthest room from the office/restaurant with 2 small children in tow. Room was very disappointing; we managed to switch to one of...
