Rift Valley Tourist Hotel

Hotel in Shashemene

This hotel has three levels of rooms in an old and a more recent building. They’re old-fashioned and a bit overpriced, but you're paying a premium for the multilevel garden full of trees and art, which takes you a world away from the rest of the town. The restaurant (mains Birr35 to Birr60) has a larger than normal roster of local and international fare.

The first-class rooms, with tiled floors, have a fresher feel and are more spacious than others.
