It is a very good hotel! Unfortunately we did not have Wi-Fi at all. Food at the hotel restaurant is delicious! Staff is great! The bathroom is fully equipped, excellent shower and we did not have any problem with hot water. Room is not spacious, but clean, beds are comfortable. I recommend this hotel in Bahar Dar!
