    Charming and helpful staff, comfortable and clean accommodation with the added luxury of hot water bottles and extra blankets as it was chilly in the evening and night. Food was good and all in all we would like to say thankyou very much indeed for...More

    Very strange. 1) It is currently the dry season and at 3300 meters altitude, the air is crisp and dry. How can the rooms possibly be damp? 2) We don't have a single fluorescent light in the whole place. 3) Yes, we do warm the...More

    We stayed one night at Simien Lodge while hiking through the Simien Mountains. While the management/office staff were hospitable and warm, the wait staff were unfortunately less than approachable. The rooms, though large, are dark and cold. We were given hot water bottles for the...More

    So you left our hotel and went to stay at Lima Limo hotel? Interesting. The Simiens are cold. The altitude is 3300 meters above sea level. We do have underfloor solar heating in all rooms that works well in October which is a sunny month....More
