Very decent hotel, clean and a very good restaurant (nice tibs and the best mitmita ever). Daniel, the owner, and wife, are very kind and generous. They will facilitate your stay in Harar. The staff is also very helpful and nice. I really enjoyed my week end in Harar. If you have time, do not miss the visit to Koromi,...

We had a nice stay at the Winta and think it’s deserving of rank as the best in town. Harar has some of the worst tourist accommodation infrastructure in the country, so this is a good choice, despite (slightly) higher prices. The owner, Daniel, was a nice guy and will ply you with beers or the beverage of your choosing....

We stayed on the first floor at the back of the property however would stay on a higher floor next time due to a bit of noise coming from the restaurant...although not too bad. The breakfast is good as is the dinner. The staff are...

This hotel maybe good as it provides big rooms good bed and nice staff but the rooms in the steers (that I had as the garden side was full) are too noisy . The windows do not lock properly and all the trucks noises and pollution goes into the room. The breakfast was very good with pancakes and fresh fruit...

I've traveled a couple of times to Harar and its surrounding for work purpose. We (with my colleagues) stayed there for about a week and we loved it. The owner guy is always there and he makes you feel at home. He can also organize visits to different places.

This is the best place to stay in Harar bar none! It was full when we arrived but Daniel called one of his friends and the guy drove us around for over an hour until we could find an other place to stay and then wouldn't let us pay him. The next day Daniel picked us up and took us...

Great hotel on the edge of Harar - a bit of a walk to the old city but you can easily get a tuk-tuk. Good clean and comfortable rooms, plenty of hot water, nice staff and decent food. But what makes it is its super-helpful, friendly owner. Pick-up from Dire Dawa airport can be arranged.
