There wasn't anything I didnt like. The view was amazing. The room was very good, everything worked. The staff was very very nice and accommodating. If there was anything I needed they tried very hard to get it. Excellent service. No safety issues. Good food and coffee. Free breakfast buffet.

Basic service, nice view.
Being in the south of Ethiopia, this is one of the best you can find. The pool is in acceptable condition (compared to the other hotels that have pool also in the area). Breakfast is limited, pest control around the premises seems to be luxury, good thing there are mosquito nets on the beds. As anything in Ethiopia, it is too expensive for what you are getting (compared to all surrounding countries, S.Africa, etc).

So so hotel
Dining facility is good, view unbeatable but rooms are so-so. Walls are thin so you can hear your next door neighbors snore, their babies cry throughout the night, etc. Doors also dont fit their frames correctly allowing mosquitoes to come in and out of your room. Internet is only availabe in the dining facility and reception area.

This place had a great view. The restaurant and buffet were excellent. They were able to arrange a great tour of Lake Chamo. However, they resisted my attempts to arrange a tour within the Nechsar National Park, which unfortunately is not worthy of a destination.
