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.

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.

The room was pretty small and stuffed with furniture. Most rooms also have water issues- a feature they boast, though it does eventually work after much frustratoin. No fan or air circulation, so also quite stuffy. Tv doesn't work. The rooms are way overpriced and all of the tour companies funnel tourists there because they don't know any better. You...

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour. It's right behind the castle complex, as a matter of fact, when you finish the tour you exit and it's right there. They have a restaurant area and the lodge is sort of secluded behind it. There is a nice seating seating area that you can get wifi in....

We had to move from the first room we were given due to a strong smell of sewage. The second room didn't smell and was adequate, if nothing special. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Sadly the same couldn't be said for the waitresses as they were an exceptionally dour lot and one in particular was borderline surly! Breakfasts...

It was mainly a restaurant and bar,where locals were enjoying their leisure time, then in the small backyard,a few rooms hidden as a lodge. Rooms were small and very basic.Hot water for bathing and Wi-Fi available. The service was also quite basic,servants were not as positive as we expected.
