Addis Amba Hotel
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Bahar Dar
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Could not figure out whether the hotel was still being built or had already started to deteriorate.
We were moved to three different rooms in search of water - never to be found for showers or sinks.
The only positive statement to make was that there were a few staff (including the restaurant crew) who seemed genuinely concerned and the porter worked terribly hard and graciously to assist us. The day front desk
staff was less than cordial and since we had paid in advance, could have cared less.
Being charged for the use of glasses was a bit much, as well.
All in all, a very unpleasant experience.

Good location close to town and about 15 minutes by foot to Lake Tana. Finishes are not the best, but the hotel is modern, clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. Looks and feels like a 'business' hotel. Rooms are spacious, with decent hot water showers. Wifi is excellent and available throughout the hotel.

This is a new clean hotel with modern fascilities. I am very amazed by the friendly staff and great services offered to me while I was staying for a month at the hotel. Every member of the staff seemed to know their duties and certainly willing to go above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. The rooms are very comfortable and large. The bath rooms are clean and have good standard. I will definitely recommed to others to stay at this hotel in Bahirdar and I will not hesitate to use it again in my next trip to Bahirdar.

This was my first stay in this hotel. I had been a number of times already in Bahir dar, usually staying at the Avanti land but this time I was so shocked by the price they were asking, that I look for something else and thanks to internet I found this hotel.

If it certainly doesn't have the luxury of the Avanti, the service here is much nicer, everybody being adorable. A special mention to the gentleman who is managing the hotel, who permanently is looking for ways to help or to assist.

Internet is certainly one of the best in Bahir dar and it's free. I have had much better food in the hotel's restaurant that in town and in addition is really cheap. And the location is also very convenient

Room Tip: Rooms at the back side are Nicer
