The ‘highest hotel in Africa’ is the sole hotel within the national park, sitting atop an escarpment. Lammergeyer soar at these heights, clearly visible. ‘Tukul’ village style circular huts are comfortable accommodations encircled by breath-taking scenery, incredible cliffs and endless hiking routes. A cosy fireplace bar is an ideal spot in the chilly evenings to enjoy a glass of local wine whilst listening to a nature talk on the surroundings.Recommended for:

Lovely little lodge that boasts being the highest in Africa. Rooms are nice and have plenty of hot water -- an accomplishment given the remote location.
Pricing here is quite high and food and beverage run 2x most other places that we stayed in Ethiopia. That said, still quite reasonable and seems fair given the remoteness.
Excellent Gelada viewing. A wonderful base for day hikes in the Simien mountains. Highly recommended -- and your alternative is a tent!
