Great hotel on the edge of Harar - a bit of a walk to the old city but you can easily get a tuk-tuk. Good clean and comfortable rooms, plenty of hot water, nice staff and decent food. But what makes it is its super-helpful, friendly owner. Pick-up from Dire Dawa airport can be arranged.

Daniel and his staff have created the absolute #1 place to stay in Harar. Visiting Harar for the first time, I can tell you that it can be quite overwhelming. You need people you can trust, and Daniel is one person that you can always trust. He helped us get connected with a local guide named Abiti (also known as...

The manager is great. Will help you to the max. Knows everything and everybody. Free breakfast. The fried eggs are safe and super crispy with tasty bread. Ask for Nescafe. Can get traditional food as well as there is a kitchen. Has the largest church and mosque in Harar nearby, almost across the street. Reasonable price, everything is negotiable.

Harar is rather off the beaten path, so if you are looking for the 4 Seasons you are going to be sorely disappointed. But, if you are looking for warm Ethiopian hospitality and clean comfortable rooms this is the place! We stayed here for 2 nights with our 6 year old daughter. The room was cleaned immaculately each day. Our...

We stayed in this nice, clean and good value hotel for a short visit to Harar. It is by no means a luxury hotel by Western standards, but it is very clean and in good repair. Hot water and even wifi. What makes the difference is the welcome and hospitality of the owners. Run by a family, everyone is charming...

From my research, I established that accommodation options in Harar are extremely extremely limited. The pros of Winta: - Nice clean rooms, very new overall - hot water - great internet - good breakfast spread - staff are friendly and helpful! Even linked me up with some travellers with a car to get me free transport to the Babille livestock...

Stayed here as a mid-thirties couple Jan 2016. Generally acknowledged as the best hotel in town (together with Ras according to some, but cannot compare as we only stayed in Winta). The price was in-line with mid-range accommodations in Ethiopia, being the best room we got in this range. Perfectly clean bed and sheets, working fridge in the room, complimentary...

Winta Hotel hadn't been out first choice, because of its location but we were very happy that we ended up here. Daniel and his family were very welcoming from the moment we arrived -- the place has more the atmosphere of a family-run guest house than a hotel. ("Make yourself at home. ") Distance from the Old Town was never...

“Get top floor. Can be noisy with nearby mosque, but in a good way. Always check multiple rooms and the bathroom before you accept to stay.”
