Journey the Nation

Find accommodations across the country Hotels

Winn Hotel is the most centrally located hotel in Bahir Dar. In a prime position on the main street a short walk to the lake and both bus stations as well as numerous restaurants and cafes, the hotel also boasts a crisp, sleek, modern interior style that you would expect of hotels twice it’s price.
The very imposing two-story Zamiyda guest-house is a sight to behold from the street. The bright colours sit in contrast to the exquisite wood carvings and the interior design is as eccentric as the toothless owner. As entertaining as he is, fortunately you will get more out of his son who speaks excellent English. Unlike other traditional houses, Zamiyda can be reached by vehicle and also can offer vehicle parking.
This traditional Harari House has stood for 400 years. The bright courtyard brings the place to life as does the lovely female owner who will make you feel incredibly welcome as soon as you cross the threshold. As with all Harari traditional houses, it showcases many antiquities in the traditional multi-level living room. The guest rooms stray a little from this traditional style but the frilly bed sheets are so out-of-date you can argue that they still constitute historic!
This is a rare truly budget option, currently under exploited by foreign visitors. The rooms are very rudimental but are excellently located and provide a bit of serenity on a nice side street close to the old city walls. There is a nice cafe adjoined underneath run by an American-Ethiopian man and a good shaded courtyard to relax in. We are assured that it is also possible to spot Hyenas from the rooms overlooking the stadium.
