Planet Hotel

The Planet Hotel is a city style hotel in the heart of Mekelle. It is a good place to use as a base to explore the extraordinary Mountains of Adwa, site of the Battle of Adwa with the Italians in 1896 and the impressive pre-Axumite temple of Yeha.

Tigray Region, Ethiopia
The Planet Hotel

The Planet Hotel is a modern, city hotel which we believe makes a comfortable and well-located base from which to explore the area. It’s within a short drive of the capital, Mekelle’s, museums and mosques, and the rocky landscapes of Tigray region are drivable in a day.
The hotel features comfortable rooms and suites, many of which have a private balcony. Some suites have a seating area and others have extra beds, which make them suitable for those travelling with children. Guests can enjoy both traditional Ethiopian dishes and western cuisine at the restaurant, and relax with a sunset cocktail to music at the contemporary bar space.
The Planet Hotel’s facilities will make sure you are able to relax and enjoy your time after a day exploring the Tigray region. There’s a range of gym equipment in the sizeable fitness centre, whilst the swimming pool is large and has an adjacent smaller pool area. The health club also offers guests the chance to treat themselves with time in the sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room or with a massage. Guests can browse the on-site shop, and the 24-hour front desk will be happy to arrange tours of the surrounding region so you can make the most of your visit to the region.
