Hotel itself looks very nice. It is quiet and well-located. However, way to high prices (more than double for farengie/non-residence card holders) for not very pretty rooms in the back of the hotel with bad view (single rooms). There are suites/double rooms with a view, but these rooms are again way more expensive.

I had been recommended this hotel and I'm glad I was. The location and history made it truly special. However, and it is a big however, the rooms are really tired - a little like the staff. The place is clean, the food ok, but it could be so much more with just a few upgrades - not the price...

I was here for morning breakfast, two years before. I had enjoyed the food so decided to go once again on 6th Dec, 2015 for breakfast. I enjoyed it. I had to go back to Addis Ababa on same day evening. For lunch also I had preferred to be here, even after visit to Wukro. I need some rest and...

I've stayed there twice in the past month. The place has a very large compound and is very central to town. But amenities are lacking when compared with other budget hotels such as Hilltop and Milano. It is still a gov't owned hotel in the Ghion chain. The single rooms were very small and I had to upgrade to the...

Lovely place to stay. Had been camping/roughing my way across Ethiopia on hikes so was nice relief to sleep in an actual bed again! Room was in the castle itself, spacious, double bed, fairly comfy and clean private bathroom. Stunning views of Mekele from bedroom! Restaurant food was good, seemed quite popular with locals, too. Restaurant staff was very friendly...

Transport yourself back in time in this nobleman's palace. Last done up in the 1960s it has all of the period charm: leather sofas, enormous arm chairs, an imported piano, beautiful chandeliers. The greatest thing about this hotel is the ancient Ethio-Italian staff led by the magnificent Georgio. He will remember your name and provide endless cheer. The only negatives...

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. We stayed in Room 205 which is the biggest and nicest room in this old and historic building. The room has a sitting area adjoining the bedroom and an ensuite bathroom. The building is old but generally clean. The room was more than adequate for our needs. It's not...

The Abreha Castle is a holdover from a different epoch. Just when is hard to define, but I felt as though I was in Europe between the World Wars. I think that the staff training must be the same as when Ethiopia was an Italian colony. The restaurant MaitreD' knew most of the patrons by name, and my guess is...

“You must stay in the actual castle. The rooms below the castle are darker and smaller. And don't forget to haggle!”

“Room 205 is the biggest and nicest room. It also has an ensuite bathroom. It's also the most expensive room with a higher rate for foreign visitors but still very good value.”
