This is a great place to stay for an extended visit in Addis. I spent over 20 days there with my fiancee this past December and we had a great time. The gardens and facilities are excellent for both entertaining and having business meetings.
First of all lets get this out of the way - yes the rooms are a bit dated. I like many others are looking forward to the planned renovations. The rooms are probably over 40 years old. With that said they are still clean and reliable. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in in Africa. The hot water is reliable and the water pressure is excellent. Addis gets cold at night but the room is always warm.
Yes, there are newer hotels in Addis and nicer ones. I've stayed at them but for now I'm going to keep going back to the Hilton. The other hotels have power outages, un-reliable water pressure, and un-reliable Internet. While the Hilton Internet isn't fast it was fast enough and reliable enough for me to work for two weeks of my stay.
If you have a Gold Hilton Honors membership you will find the hotel very accommodating. I stayed on the executive floor and enjoyed both a free breakfast and complimentary happy hour.
I'm looking forward to staying there again.

A lovely hotel in Addis, I stayed for a short work trip. The hotel is modern and comfortable, offers a great restaurant and bar. Rooms are new with very comfortable beds. A great alternative to the over-priced Sheraton which is the standard for business meetings in Addis.

Overall pretty decent experience. Its a bit away from town which required use of taxi services. Overall the hotel is well equipped for tourists. The customer service was excellent as was overall level of cleanliness.
Situated in Gondar, this hotel is 4.5 mi (7.2 km) from Fasil Ghebbi and 5 mi (8 km) from Debre Birhan Selassie Church.More
Friendly, helpful staff who arranged everything I asked for from transport, replacing a lightbulb, taking messages and lending use of the phone.
Breakfast was good, I recommend the freshly made omelet.
The location is central and convenient for shops, cafes, clubs and the castle. It is noisy at night though.
My room was large, beautiful and spotlessly cleaned every day. Hot water was available at all times.
Wireless downstairs was reliable.

Many things about the Goha were laudable... being met at Gondar Airport, a warm friendly welcome from smiling staff, the view from the terrace over Gondar, coffee on the terrace, ice cold Dashen beer and much more.
However what was not so pleasing was: being charged $105 dollars for a room I'd already paid $46 for through Expedia. Then after complaining the room rate was reduced to $59. Plus the heavyweight screen to close off the window, the 'shabby' bed linen, the antiquated bath and toilet, the 'sand-paper' towels, only luke warm water, being sat in the bar for dinner as the dining room was full of package holiday-makers from 7.00 'til 9.30, sporadic electricity cuts, sporadic inter-net cuts along side the power-failure, getting food-poisoning on the last night (my fault as I really shouldn't eat luke-warm lamb as a main course.
HOWEVER taking all this into account I WILL stay at the Goha again. The view, the quietness, the clear, fresh air and and the very helpful and friendly staff made this one of Ethiopia's better country hotels... thanks to all at the Goha and I forgive you for the dose of sickness I got (could be from handling the birr notes of course and not the food).
