Great location with views of Lake Tana and close walking distance to town center. Spacious rooms with nice terrace where you can relax with a wood burning fire in the evening. Very friendly staff. However, property could be updated a bit. Wifi is weak unless you’re in the lobby - need signal boosters. Shower has no water pressure, and little regulation of hot and cold. Doors do not shut or lock easily (bar serves as lock once inside), and while rooms are sprayed, mosquitos do get into the room requiring manual spraying. Hotel does offer netting for beds which is good.

Hotel location I’d wonderful, next to lake. The property is quirky, with stone buildings and tress. We could not connect to wifi during our stay. We had to move from our first room as it had no hot water and was next to the main road.

Best place in Bahir Dar
We stayed at this lovely place 2 nights. It was easy to book trips on the lake to the monastries and to Blu Nile from the site. The outside bar was a beautiful place with a wonderful view. The restaurant and the hotel are the best in town. The wifi was ok. If you go there, find time to take a walk on the path just under the bar to the smal local harbor and have a coffee or beer there.

Poor service and attention to detail
The place was built with incredible originality and love, but must now have a different owner as there is no style or attention to detail in much of anything. The reception is dark and somber, the rooms very unclean around the edges, and the exposed incandescent bulb the lighting of choice. The fish at the restaurant is cooked to something resembling jerky, which itself feels like the vast dining hall of an all-inclusive resort. It seems there is no one around really running the show, and the English and training level of the staff is outright poor. There’s certainly worse, but it’s sad to see a place with such lovely potential operated by someone who seems to have no clue how to run a hotel.
