    Good hotel staff helpful

    The shower fittings definitely need upgrading. Make your requirements and expectations to the management very clear. If you do you will find them very helpful. Take time to be sure the staff understand your requirements and requests, because as you would expect from someone who is not using their first language, they have varying degrees of competency in English. Be proactive and you will have a good stay is my advice after many visits to Africa.

    Disappointement...

    I did not apreciate the lack of knowledge of services (included in all bills by the way 10%), Check in: Booked online I paid the total directly with Hotels.com which was confirmed on my arrival. The luggage staff is claiming for tips as if it's an obligation..if you don't have change they act unhappy...weird! gave a dollar and the smile was back... I just entenred my room that 5 mn later, the cleaners try to enter my room without knocking and insist to enter even though it was locked..got quiet scared at first. The restaurant is unorganised, the greeting is poor..ended up having a tea only. Room service food was cold for my only meal there. Check out: Waiting for my transfert to leave, took a drink in the lobby to access internet as it was not reliable in the room. Ordered a drink and paid for it while waiting. As I stood up to leave the lady receptionnist ran to me leaving her desk "You have not paid!!!", asks me to come back to the desk, here they are 4 of them looking for an email confirmation from Hotels.com..then the "manager" goes to me "Ok you can go" as if I was arrested by the immigration office, no apologies, nothing for the humiliation .Somehow this incident actually spoiled the bit I liked about the hotel (hammam, swimming pool, lobby area, garden terrace.) I will definitly not renew the experience on my next visit in Awassa.

    Not safe. I injured my fingers when the balcony door was opened. The stopper is not in place for the door. Same in other rooms as well.
