Beautiful and Clean. Stunning view of the evening sky and sunset. Open and airy, with comfortable seating to use wifi or look at the TV. Simply tell the chef you food preferences and you will be accommodated. Sit on the balcony of your room, read a good book and watch the sunset. I liked the fact that I have no...

If you want an experience that is amazing, Mountain View is the place. The view is breath taking during the day and especially at night. It is the opportunity to to see every star in the sky. The staff is very attentive. The food is fantastic. The Keita and local honey was superb. The Margherita pizza was fresh and delicious.

A great hotel in Ethiopian terms, fine, clean and basic rooms in Western ones. The view is no less that breathtaking, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. It's a bit far to walk from the city center, but a short bajaj travel would bring you to the right place. Note that this hotel offers free wifi that also...

The best feature of this hotel is the view from the rooms over the valley, spectacular. Rooms are fairly basic but serve the purpose. Drinking water is not supplied in the room. The bathroom has hot water but beware as cleaning staff turned ours off during the day and we didn't realise until we wanted a shower that night and...

Older hotel but maintained well. Large dining room with buffet. Many tourist groups from Japan. Clean. Easy walk to the churches. Friendly staff. There are newer hotels nearby I would try but would also go back.

The hotel is situated at the end of the road, so there's no traffic or noise. The hotel rooms overlook the fantastic valley and mountain range opposite and what a view that is. The colours change over the course of the day and at night the headlights from cars going up the mountain illuminate the scenery - just fantastic -...

Accommodation - decent rooms, clean and comfortable. Not luxury, but decent. Food - decent for local and European cuisine. Hotel location - best view I've ever had form a hotel and close to the rock churches.

I have stayed at the Mountain View three times in the last three years. It is a beautiful hotel and I have always looked forward to staying there. This year I added an extra day for relaxation. Sadly, I got my first case of bed bugs this year, June of 2016. The staff must have known about the problem when...

The only really good thing about this hotel is the view. Extremely poor service, smoke alarm battery dead and could not replace. No shower gel or shampoo, just hard soap. Poky and primitive bathroom with dodgy plumbing. Telephone was not working. WiFi was variable & only worked near the reception. The food was variable: fresh fruit was good but some...
