Quara Hotel
Ranked #12 of 14 Hotels in Gonder
Reviewed 19 April 2015

The hotel is in the centre of Gondar but extremely noisy especially as the mass starts at around 6am and is on loud speakers! The rooms were ok and fairly clean but the bathroom had hardly any shower water and never hot, I had to change rooms as the first room had no water at all coming from the shower. The dining room is like a cafeteria but the food was ok nothing special but edible, apart from the morning porridge which resembled watery gruel! Wifi only works in the lobby area and then not all the time. I found the reception staff very helpful though in helping us to arrange transport and changing my room. Be careful if you get washing done as all mine came back wet so make sure you say you want it dried! They have a terrace overlooking the centre square where you can have drinks or coffee which is quite pleasant and a courtyard with tables and chairs. Overall an ok hotel as there isnt much choice.

Room Tip: Overlooking the courtyard at the back is quieter

The hotel Quara is pretty poor. The rooms are dirty, badly maintained (the shower door fell off when I tried to use the shower ), and the bed And bedding smelt of the many other people who had slept there before. The 6 am mass is also very loud if you don't have to get up at 6 am.

We didn't stay here but we went her for dinner twice. I am not so much of a pizza fan but the pizza here was good. The roof top restaurant gave you views of the square while you waiting for your food.

I thought that the staff were helpful and fun. So if you need a place to eat in Gondar you might want to give this a try.

I can hardly believe that this is the "best" hotel in town! It is completely run down. The rooms are clean but nothing special. The "hydromassage" shower must be a joke!!! The restaurant offers food in can if I judge our "tomato soup"! The court in the middle of the hotel is very noisy and looks more like a garage. On top of that, there was a Wifi signal but no connection at all!!! Disappointing hotel.

We stayed one night at this hotel in December 2014. I suspect they must have done some renovations recently. The bedroom was compact, but adequate with clean comfortable beds. There is a TV and a small refrigerator. A small terrace with a view on the piazza. The bathroom was spotless. The shower has a 'massage' feature in it, but beware. The water pressure is low and you probably won't be able to enjoy it. More important, this was one of the few hotels we stayed in where one could mix the hot and cold water properly.
The restaurant has a view on the piazza and the food's quality was good. Breakfast was wonderful. Except for the usual local fare, there was a wide variety of cereals, eggs, etc. Try the avocado juice, sounds unusual, but really recommendable.
