The room we stayed in was large, clean and very sunny. We chose to have breakfast included but also ate other meals at the restaurant downstairs – all were good. The hotel is situated on a street corner and we loved sitting outside watching the world go by – kids walking to school in the mornings, all types of animals...

To book: +251 581 120314 / 15 or caprawaliainn.com (took me a while to find that) Honestly though.. No steadily working wifi, no water at all one morning and extreme construction going on across the street that looks nowhere near complete as of jan 2015. But I can't complain about the room itself or the location..

The room was ok, whereas the toilet was a bit poor (in line with what I've seen in Ethiopia). Pretty often we didn't have water in the room, but I think I was a general issue in the town, and not an specific of the hotel. The location and price were good. The breakfast wasn't included, and it was a...

The restaurant downstairs and the street in front meant that this place was crazy loud until late at night and beginning around 6 am in the morning. I had a really hard time getting a good night's sleep here, and we ended up changing hotels due to this. The internet network was unlocked, so people hung around their cafe and...

Clean, modern, well situated, quiet, great shower, wifi, small street terrace and our room had a balcony (could do with a chair or two out there). Small popular restaurant downstairs (good pizza). Recommended.

I stayed here on a recommendation from someone. I heard that it is owned and run by someone who spent a lot of time in the US. It was a very pleasant stay. The staff went out of their way to be nice to me--I had to leave for airport at 630am, and when I went downstairs for breakfast, they...

Nice clean rooms, bathroom not great but fine. WiFi downstairs and decent food. Hotel staff were helpful and let us leave luggage while we trekked in Simien mountains. Only downsides were that manager had given away our room despite booking, as we were "later than expected" (arrived at 1900). Luckily they had a single to offer us which was fine....

Capra Waila offers a good compromise between not spending much and having a decent place to stay. The rooms are quite nice, but the bathroom was in a terrible state: the toilet seat needed cleaning, and when we ask them to clean it, the staff stuck the clearning rug (which itself was far from being clean) in the WC and...

THis was a very well run hotel. MAnager is very nice and staff are great. THe Resteraunt does great meals and for very cheap aswell. NO water at all during my stay, however thats not the fault of the hotel. IF i was in gondar again the only places id consider staying are here and the lodge du chateau.

We stayed 2 nights,1 before the Simiens trek and 1 after. They kept out things for free during 3 days. Rooms were in good condition and the bathroom worked well. Good wifi connection was available and food was also ok. We asked for a discount for a single because was a bit expensive compared to other hostels and they gave...
