10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was lovely - situated on a hill overlooking the city with great views. Rooms were clean and well kept. Food was nice, traditional dishes cooked very well. Excellent service.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean and comfortable with stunning views
Cons: The credit card terminals and ATM were not working.
6.5 Good
Cons: Breakfast was supposed to be included but it was only from 6 - 9 AM, which is too early for weekends
4.3 Okay
Pros: The Goha hotel is situated high above Gondar and has incredible views of the city. This however is the hotels only redeeming feature.
Cons: Our experience with the Goha hotel was not a pleasant one. This is really sad as the Goha could be an absolutely incredible hotel. It is situated above the city with magnificent views and the building was obviously once very grand. It has however lost its lustre and even worse, it's staff were not helpful and a couple of staff tried to rip us off. The Staff On arrival, the staff were not overly helpful and were not able to tell me whether we had been charged for a night that we were unable to stay due to a protest stopping us reaching the hotel for our first scheduled night at Goha. The unhelpful reception staff ordered a Tuk Tuk (called a Bajaj) for us to head into the city. As I walked out to the door I asked the cost and the receptionist started 150 Bir, as I did the calculations I realised this was about AUD$7.50 and seemed incredibly expensive. When the Tuktuk driver confirmed 150Bir my partner and I decided we'd just walk. The receptionist followed us to the front gate, but we just continued walking. As we headed down the hill the Tuktuk drove off but swung around as soon as we were out of sight of the hotel receptionist. He then offered to drive us for 50Bir. I later learned this is the market rate. My assumption from this is that the receptionist stood to make a cut of the inflated Price. Whilst it was only AUD$5, This left a really bad taste in my mouth. The Room The Goha Room was also a disappointment. The design meant the bathroom was very small with the sink being outside the bathroom and in room proper. The Room had not been thoroughly cleaned in a while with the curtains covered in dust. Thankfully the bed and bedsheets were clean. The Room also was in need of repairs with a piece of skirting board missing, the tap was broken and the sink was just a gaping hole. The Food The Goha food was also a disappointment. The breakfast was ok, however the dinner was of a very poor standard.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from the balcony and gardens is amazing. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
Cons: Our room wasn't cleaned during our stay.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at the hotel for one night, after staying somewhere else in town, which was more central to the sights. Although we did not use their services, the hotel is affiliated with a travel agency that can arrange local trips. It is on a hill, and it is one of the highest points in the city. It is well integrated with the existing landscape/nature making it a very relaxing place to stay. Views are excellent, but you will need some form of transportation to move around if you choose this as your base. Our room was clean, and we were able to get a relaxing shower with good water pressure and hot water, which we did not have at our other hotel.
Cons: Rooms are somewhat dated as this is an older hotel. We requested a double but got two single beds instead. They told us the hotel was booked when we tried to switch rooms, and this appeared to be the case as there were at least a couple of large tour groups staying there. There is no a/c or heat (as expected), but the room did get hot even with the windows open at night in March. The door to the bathroom did not close properly and the shower did not drain. The food at the restaurant was very average and the staff were not the most attentive, but the views from the restaurant are good and there is a large bar.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The room and the lobby area are beautifully decorated with traditional motifs. There are many staff and some are very nice (like the lovely gentleman who wiped the dust off our backpacks while we were checking in - we'd just arrived from the Simien trek). The beds are comfortable and the shower has good pressure.
Cons: We had booked a double room and we were given a twin. The reception staff isn't particularly helpful, they were rather dismissive. The breakfast is not at all rich and it took us 10 mins to get a cup of tea, they bring it to the table at request, but we had to ask several times for it. Despite the location itself being quiet, it was very noisy due to construction work being carried out in the hotel. Many of the rooms don't have any view, you only get it from the terrace. The shower drain was clogged. The sink is inside the room, but there's no place to hang the towel. The furniture is rundown.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Bed was also comfortable. Food in the restaurant was generally very good. And the view over the city was excellent.
Cons: Electricity is not 24 hours. So you might be without power during the day. Not ideal if you want to work and charge your devices. Hot water was only available when the city power was there. So that might be late at night.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Staff is very nice - speak excellent English. Nice bar. The restaurant is typical of Ethiopia - Western and traditional foods. Breakfast also good but typical. Good location - easy walk to the Royal Enclosure. We also used the tour office in the lobby to go to Lake Tana - they did a nice job.
Cons: I think in Ethiopia (especially outside of Addis) you get some combination of quiet, hot water, water pressure, cleanliness, or wifi. Rarely all 5. Water pressure was so-so. Not a big deal.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The location was good, we were able to walk to restaurants and the staff were helpful when getting taxis
Cons: Everything was fine
3.3 Mediocre
Cons: Hot water in the shower... Not really
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very helpful and in tune to customer service. Restaurant on site and ATM nearby. Nightly cost included breakfast and shuttle to the airport. Rooms had balconies. Nice bathroom.

7.0 Good
Pros: The hotel is average, clean, but what made me give this review is it’s wayyy too expensive for what it is! I would pay a maximum of 25$ for this hote.
Cons: The price is way too high
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Probably the best hotel we've stayed in in Ethiopia. The room was comfy and clean. The shower was hot and the water pressure was strong. It's probably twice as expensive as other hotels in Gondar, but if you're looking for western standards, this is the place.
Cons: Breakfast was basic, on par with other Ethiopian hotels. Lots of noise from the street.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Not much. Relatively centric perhaps
Cons: Room extremely noisy. No hot water. Linen looked dirty. It is expensive for what it is.
4.3 Okay
Cons: The hotel is unreasonable expensive for the service provided. We couldn't pay with credit cards. They told us there was no connection but it looked like the just wanted to avoid taxes.
3.3 Mediocre
Cons: Can't understand the ratings here. Nice staff in the reception, yes. But other from that, this hotel is a sad experience. Dirty, bad breakfast, uninterested staff, uncomfortable bed, electricity out for half a day with no generator, lousy WiFi, if at all. Maintenance must have stopped around 1974.

3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The restaurant was good and the prices quite cheap.
Cons: Ï really don't understand how this place is rated so well in general. Gondar is quite a poor and remote city but this place was far from good. The card machine didn't work. The staff is quite stiff and unhelpful. The location is a 15-minute drive away from the city centre on a busy street with nothing else nearby. The rooms are dirty and cold. Our bathroom was leaking which caused it to constantly smell mouldy etc and the shower didn't work at all. We were overcharged by all the recommended trips.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hot water oh my goodness. That was great.
Cons: The hallway light is very bright and the room we were staying in didn’t block it from coming into the room.
7.5 Good

The light bulb in the bathroom of our room was broken and the hotel staff could not repair it or offer us another room - we had to take a shower with cell phone flashlight. The mosquito net had blood stain.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, the restaurant in the hotel is good. I would book again.
7.0 Good
Cons: Electricity blackouts
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The green courtyard is absolutely a hit of this hotel – you could eat there a breakfast or dinner, have a drink or just chill out. Location is not very central, but with tuk tuks you can make it work :)

3.3 Mediocre
Pros: I think the tuk tuk person they referred me to.
Cons: The waiters are atrocious, have never seen such unprofessional staff such as that, half the time they were hurdled around talking rather than tending to the visitors. the food, well I stopped eating the included breakfast. The bread was stale, when I told them it was as if I am ungrateful. The tables were not cleaned and it made me wonder how the kitchen looked. The free WiFi never seemed to work over the two days I was there. The bed not only was it hard, it was not even straight. For me, it was just a terrible experience.
7.5 Good
Pros: Cleanliness, Nice staff.
Cons: We would have liked paying with MasterCard.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Staff unconscious. Three times I order a transfer to the airport, and at check-out time it turned out that nobody ordered it. Waitress ordered three times, and it still did not always get what you ordered. Clean but terrible. Very far from the main attractions in the city.
