2/10 Poor

I didn't like this room at all. I had the most expensive room for 3 days and left after the first day. The bathroom was leaking all over the place. To top it off there was a big ass spider on the wall starring at me, freaked me out that morning. The room smelled like it hadn't had anyone in it for a very long time. If the room was dusted and the bathroom didn't leak it would have been a very nice room. The balcony was very beautiful overlooking the lake. The bed was hard and we only had a fan, yes it was hot. The breakfast was horrible!

Cozy one night stay
Asham Africa is a comfortable room by the beautiful Bishoftu lake and I would recommend it for its good restaurant and food and comfy rooms. Unfortunately I was not able to check out the swimming pool due to rainy weather. We travelled with a group of friends for one night to explore the surrounding areas and its hiking trails and enjoyed. One of the better hotels in the area. Rooms are fairly clean, beds are comfortable and clean.

8/10 Very good

Great view of Lake Bishoftu. Rooms are large with porches overlooking the lake. The restaurant is convenient and the food is OK (typical Ethiopian). Staff are friendly and helpful. Maintenance of the building and facilities is passable, but not brilliant. The internet is slow and intermittent. Power outages were common, and the hotel's generator did not always work reliably. There is an orthodox church close by that blasts out long prayers over a powerful PA system. It starts at 6 am. Listening to hyenas calling from across the lake at night is fun!
