Lonely Planet review
Not many places pride themselves on their view of the local garbage pile, but guests in some of the east-facing rooms might see hyenas in the early morning light, and they’ll surely hear them at night. For a sure sighting, walk over to the football field after about 9pm. The hyenas, however, are the only thing recommendable. Both the rooms and the service are simply bad (though house guide Girma gets good reviews), making the prices a complete rip-off, plus odds are against having running water.
Our independent authors have visited Tewodros Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Harar.
