It is probably the oldest Hotel in the town. It is centrally located and oversees a fine property. The Hotel has an open air restaurant where one can dine while admiring the lovely garden and a few animals roaming around. I had a couple of deer within a couple of meters watching me eat. The Hotel also has the best...

This place is an excellent place to stay in Arba Minch. For a little over 20 dollars you have a clean room, good shower, great courtyard, and a restaurant right there. Very safe and clean. Can't recommend this place enough when I was in this town. Nice location, and really liked my stay there. Steve USA

The hotel is nice and green but the service delivery is slow. As customer satisfaction depends on fast service delivery, Arba Minch Tourist Hotel needs a much enhanced service delivery. Located at the most busiest, in fact a tourist hub town of Arba Minch, Tourist Hotel is always with high number of clients both domestic and foreign. The contemporary travel...

Arba Minch Tourist Hotel brazenly charges foreigners ("faranji") DOUBLE the prices of locals for room rates. They have a laminated price menu that states this, and none of the staff seems to think that this is at all a problem - they defend the policy when asked. WOW, UNBELIEVABLY OFFENSIVE! This pricing policy alone is enough for me to discourage...

Service quality is not to the standard, customer satisfaction and loyalty are secured through high quality services but tourist hotel of Arba Minch failed to do so. Generally: 1. Reliability: the ability to provide a service as expected by the customer. 2. Assurance: the degree to which the customer can feel confident that the service will be correctly provided. 3....

Fantastic mango juice, decent food, lovely salads. Good service, though have to wait a little for the bill as there is only one cashier. Better food than some of the better restaurants and really lovely gardens, you would never know you were right in town. We were going to stay here, but looking at the rooms (very tired and old),...

This is a place for a leisure lunch. Lots of local folks seemed in evidence and tourists were of good humor. Wonderful garden setting; food was about average; service a tad slow and the bill a tad dicey and worthy of discussion. Great setting and enjoy the moment. Don’t rush and you won’t be disappointed.
