Lodge du Chateau Gondar Reviews
An oasis in the center of Gondar Oct 25, 2014
This hotel is located in the city center, near the entrance of the Royal enclosure. The road has street lighting, so safe at night. There is a guard at the gate that supervises everyone that goes inside. He is also helpful when you arrive. They did even clean our dirty backpacks when we arrived from the Simien mountains. On arrival you are welcomed with your name written on paper sheets at the reception.
The hotel has only a breakfast restaurant. They bake their own bread, have honey and fresh juice in the morning and that's great. The omlets are great, especially the one with spinace.
There are a few good restaurants to dine on walking distance f.i. Four Sisters or Masterchef. But take a torch because road in Gondar can be pitch dark.
Every room has a 'lounge bench' in front of the room, in the garden. In the garden you can spot several types of colorful birds.
The rooms are placed around the garden, they are big and have locally made furniture. They are clean and have fresh sheets and extra blanckets are available.
The standard rooms are great to stay and accaptable value (45usd) per night. There is also a 'dorm' in the basement that offers cheaper place to stay. The 25 usd you pay for that are no good value, i think. It would be better if the hotel changes this space into a good dinner restaurant. But for small groups it is an option.
