Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Gondar. The room is of average size for 2 person. Furnishing was pretty basic and dated though it is clean enough. Service was average and breakfast spread was pretty decent.

I have to chuckle at how this hotel is describing itself, "AG Hotel is a wonderfully luxurious hotel" ... even for Gondar, I think this hotel is FAR from anything remotely luxurious, even by Ethiopian standards. Our room was cramped, outdated with broken furniture and very dark. There were several light fixtures in the room but the only that worked was the one on the wall over the bed. This hotel is what I would call very basic. The room and bathroom did seem clean enough though. There was only one electrical outlet but they had a power strip connected to it but only half the outlets worked. They placed this power strip on a dirty chair in the corner of the room so if you actually needed to use the chair, it seemed as though you'd need to unplug the power strip in order to do so. There was a wardrobe in the room with only one sad, totally mishapen wire hangar in it that you wouldn't be able to hang anything off of even if you wanted to. There was absolutely NO hot water in the morning for even a quick shower. I let the water run for over 10 minutes and gave up to having a freezing cold shower. The dinner and breakfast buffets were disappointing too with very limited selections of luke warm food. The wifi was very spotty and I kept losing the signal. All in all, the location was convenient, but this was one of the worst hotels of our trip and I really can't recommend even one night here. I'm sure that most other hotels in the area would be much nicer places to stay.

Comfortable enough in an OK, tertiary location but lots of things not working or a bit broken (wardrobe doors/hinges, bathroom cupboards...). The restaurant served a great lamb dish in the evening and breakfast, with an egg bar, was good.

This is a decent hotel. We had a comfortable, real king size bed, welcome after three days camping in the Simiens. The room had plenty of wardrobe space and the wi-fi worked really well so we could relax in the room and do some work. There was only one electrical outlet in the room but reception gave us a multi-plug so everything could charge. We did have problems with hot water because we were told that it was on demand. That was not true. After one of us had a cold shower we played with the knob under the heater and managed to make it come on. Why they lied to us is a big question. In addition, the pipes leaked and water was all over the floor, which we used our towels to wipe up. We only had soup and salad for dinner and our guide had a pizza and all were good. The breakfast is a buffet with many basic choices of local food and an egg bar for your choice of cooked eggs. There was also fresh juice with and without sugar and jams and peanut butter. The staff is friendly. And, power was on all night. The major issue for us was the laundry. We had given it the day before and were repeatedly lied to before our departure about the time it would return and where it was. For several hours the staff kept changing the time and even stated that they had hung it on the roof to dry. None of that was true. Finally, we demanded to have it returned but had to go to the laundry to collect it, still wet. They had also not kept it separate from other laundry and so we had to sort through what they gave us as it was not all ours and we were missing items. It was chaos and inexcusable.

Loved the staff and the super nice location. Thank You for everything. These people went the extra mile by helping me out with lost luggage, cooking customized dinners and touring me in city. The room was pretty awesome and had a lovely balcony to look out on the busy but beautiful street.
