The AG Hotel in Gondar’s main hub is a ten minute walk from the Fasilides castle which is right on the main road. You can also book and arrange your Siemens Mountain trek from this city.
My room was huge, with a giant bed, a mini-bar corner with a kettle and tea, a fan, a closet, a writing desk, a small balcony with a view across the valley and a bath tub.
I haven’t had a bath in years so it was definitely how I was going to end the evening. I washed up and headed down to the terraced restaurant and enjoyed a pizza dinner with a fresh mango juice and a great conversation with the head waiter.
After a dessert of banana pancake I sat in the tub and watched a movie on my laptop.
The following morning I headed down for breakfast, a buffet style with fresh juice before I thanked the staff and headed off for the border with Sudan.
I couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant stay in this city.
