This was a decent and comfortable enough place to stay for three nights on two separate occasions. When you enter the lobby, you feel like you are in a Hilton in Addis and not just in any generic chain hotel. But despite its distinct appearance, the place is quite old and I feel needs some updating. The room decor could also be improved but I liked that they were spacious, had balconies, and the beds were very comfortable. During our second stay, we got a room overlooking the swimming pool which is preferable to the alternative side which is noisier. The food at the cafe was just ok and the service was sometimes slow. The service in the outdoor dining area beside the pool was much better and we enjoyed hanging out on the comfortable chaises poolside. Surprisingly for a business hotel, the internet service was very spotty but it was helpful to have a bank/money changer inside the hotel premises as well as a small grocery nearby.

This family-friendly Addis Ababa hotel is within a 15-minute walk of ECA Conference Center and Menelik II's Palace. Holy …More
I find this to be a good compromise: significantly cheaper than the top-tier hotels nearby (can't name them, but look at the map and you'll know), but still provides reliable hot water, electricity, and most importantly for me: Wifi you can count on.
Bonuses: The sauna is nice, the gym is clean, the restaurant makes tasty food.

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.

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).
