I find this to be a good compromise: significantly cheaper than the top-tier hotels nearby (can't name them, but look at the map and you'll know), but still provides reliable hot water, electricity, and most importantly for me: Wifi you can count on.
Bonuses: The sauna is nice, the gym is clean, the restaurant makes tasty food.

The wifi is fast, the place is comfortable, the price is very reasonable, and the kitchen, reception, and housekeeping staff are friendly and helpful. I was feeling ill for a good part of my stay, and the staff made sure I was comfortable and had what I needed.

Overall the hotel was OK. Not bad for the price. The only things that I did not like: there were many mosquito's (luckily they had a net) and a stench in the bathroom (don't think it was mold, but some other unfamiliar and unpleasant stench).

We stayed here one night. The clerk at the desk did not speak much English, but the bell boy spoke excellent English so there was no problem checking in. The room was large and clean. Great shower and good large towels. We asked for the ala carte menu in the restaurant and so avoided the buffet. We had checked the wine selection earlier and found it limited and expensive so we brought our own wine to dinner and they did not charge us a corkage fee. Breakfast was similar to breakfasts offered everywhere in Ethiopia, it was fine. We wanted to go into town for the afternoon and one of the bell boys took us in in a bajaj .

We stayed at the Lal Hotel for 2 nights during the low season. The hotel staff are very friendly and well accommodating. The rooms were nice and spacious, with comfortable beds and hot showers. There was a TV but was not hooked up to any satellite, so you couldn't watch anything if you wanted to. Shopping and restaurants are close by. Ask for recommendations.
