Mayleko is a really nice lodge and - especially by Ethiopian standards - very good value for money. The lodge is situated somewhat remote, c. 12km outside the city, but close to the airport. They are happy to arrange a Tuktuk ("Bajaji") or taxi transfer to the city, which takes about 30 min. Still, it is pleasant to return to this quite, nice place in the evening, lying on a sunbed by the pool and ordering drinks from the really good restaurant. The manager, Miracle, was extremely friendly and capable and made our stay a very pleasant one. Rooms are spacious and well-designed.

Spent 3 night at the lodge returning from the Simien mountains. We are a family with young kids and the lodge was great. The kids loved the beautiful grounds with a great variety of trees and plants. They loved the swimming pool too. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. They did everything they could to make our stay really memorable. The food in the restaurant is really nice although perhaps a little bit overpriced for the area. They have a van service into Gonder which is really handy as they drop you into Gonder and collect you at the arranged time. I definitely would recommend this lodge

Looks like it had it's day. But, that day has long past. Just avoid this place. In fact, avoid this country. Remember, there's no guarantee the pictures on the website are new. In this case, they're ancient.

We stayed at the Mayleko Lodge one night on our short stay in Gondar. We had breakfast, and dinner here. The cottages are clean and comfortable. The restaurant was minimal but the service was good. There is a pool which we didn't use

Spent 2 nights while in Gondar and then returned for a third night after returning from a trek to the Simien mountains national park. We were 4 couples. The rooms are very specious and beautiful. Large and comfortable bed (and another bed in each room) and fantastic bathroom.
The hostess was very accommodating and pleasant and spoke very good English and the whole stuff did whatever possible to make our stay pleasant.
We had dinner once in the hotel and it was very good. I recommend the chicken kebab.
The lodge is located outside the city so you should have a vehicle with you.
