I chose Grand Resort due to location and Wifi. There was little to no WIFI anywhere in the hotel. Hotel staff could not help me with this except to say that WIFI would be back in the morning, which is wasn't. The water pressure in the shower/tub was low and the water never got to luke-warm. Our bed was also very hard . When we asked if we could stay a few hours over check-out due to a late afternoon flight out, they were going to charge us another night's rate. After negotiation, they were going to charge 1/2 of that, even though they had many rooms available and were not busy. We chose to leave our bags behind the counter and enjoy the afternoon at another nearby hotel. We will not stay here again and I hope that management is reading these reviews to help improve conditions at this hotel.

I have stayed Barhir Dar 4 different times. This is first time to stay at Grand Hotel. Will never stay there again. Bed super hard, barely any water.pressure and only Luke warm water. No internet and poor food. The only good part was the nice staff. Except hotel manager asked to delay check out a few hours due to late flight. Hotel almost empty he sad he had to charge me. When I said I had not complained about internet or water he said they had internet but not working now. PLEASE do not say here. Go to Kriftu resort

We stayed at this hotel from Dec 27 to Dec 30 2017.
1) No Wifi
2) you have to wait for ~30 minutes for hot water to reach to your tap.
3) front desk and some restaurant staffs trying to sell you boat trip package other than make your stay comfortable.
4) food is not fresh.

I actually think this place should be closed....

Room tip: Stay away from this place

I stayed at this hotel for one night and NOT very impressed! The bed was very UNCOMFORTABLE. The bathroom was rather smells. My bedroom was on the left side where you can see a bit of the Lake and the football pitch, at night you will hear the music from the restaurant next to it, non stop. It’s not great when you try to have some sleep. Breakfast was ok, buffet selection of local food, some bread and a cooking station for eggs. I don’t have lunch and dinner at the hotel and according to my tour guide it’s not recommended to have it there.
Would I stay at this hotel again? Definately NOT!

I want to start by saying that the service at the restaurant was good, and so was the food. My room was a different story... The air conditioning did not work from the moment we checked in. After a few days someone came to check it and did the exact same thing I did and told me to wait 30 min and he will come back to check it... He never came back and it never worked. I booked that room for 2 weeks and after 5 days I couldn't take it anymore and checked out.. While checking out I was told that they won't refund the remaining 9 days that I prepaid for... The waitresses and room service was the only good thing about my stay there... Out of towners and foreigners beware!!! Please don't make the same mistake I did and prepay for your entire stay.. That's the first and only time I will ever do that
