Sabian hotel in Aksum/Axum?

We are considering a tour package with an operator that lists our stay at Axum at the Sabian hotel. But that hotel isn't listed on Trip Advisor -- unless it goes by a different name or changed names recently. A web search doesn't come up with anything either. Would like to see what kind of place this is.

Spell it as follows and you can see it on the web: Sabean International Hotel -- it looks to be catering to conferences and business travelers

Just had two clients stay there and they loved it compared to the one thy were booked in originally. They said it was clean, in the middle of town, you can sit outside with a glass of wine and people watch. And it came with breakfast. They said the rooms were light and airy.

Hope this helps. oh, and yes, it is new.

We stayed there for one night in January and found it clean, the rooms nice with wifi that worked well. The elevator was so new it wasn't yet working but we had no probem with the stairs, probably working by now. Only two complaints, the bed was like sleeping on a rock and I left some postcards with the front desk who assured me they would be mailed but since they never arrived here, most likely were tossed. Not a big deal, I would probably stay there again.

Thanks for the reassurance and correction in spelling. It definitely looks better than other Aksum options. After our trip I will try to get it listed on Trip Advisor and post a review.

Yes but there are some Hotels in Axum like Yared Zema international Hotel, and Consolar international Hotel. This three are the best hotels in town.
