6/10 Good

Rooms are outdated and does not feel clean. Shower has only lukewarm water. Drainage issues

4/10 Fair

Bad Stay
The room floor was not clean, the shower did not have hot water and the water was white and felt dirty. Air-conditioning not serviced. At the restaurant service was horrible and very dirty, no one cares

Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Average for the price.
Nice large rooms with decent wifi and breakfast. The rooms are a little run down with poor quality towels, no bath mat or laundry list. A little far from centre of town however you can easily get there with bajaj. Good shower pressure but poor hot water. They kept and looked after our bags whilst we went on our volcano tour.

6/10 Good

Low Expectations
The bad: Check-in was confusing, the restaurant service was super slow, the hallway floors were filthy, the rooms usually didn't have hot water, the cleaning staff forgot to provide towels. The good: The staff were friendly and spoke decent English, the beds were comfortable, the swimming pool was large and the gym staff were helpful. Bottom Line: In Europe this would be a 2 star hotel that wouldn't be able to compete. It is, however, probably the best hotel in Mekele and lots of foreign tourists stay there.
