Hotel-thiopia

4 Aug

Welcome, everybody (but mostly Patrick), to Hotel-thiopia. The place where I document how we broke down and ranked all the places we stayed in Ethiopia (and Djibouti) using 12 categories.  Can you say…”time on our hands?!”

-Toilet 
-Shower
-Utility
-Towels (super stingy w/ towels in Ethiopia)
-Bed
-Lighting
-Noise
-Space
-Cleanliness
-Cost
-Location
-Hospitality

This place in Lalibela got 88 total. Downside is that you can’t hear the gorgeous chanting of the monks in this photo. MINUS 12 POINTS.

 

 

Here are the full scores for each place, again, for our own memories.

 

Ethiopia (out of 120)

Addis: 7, 7, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 3, 6, 9 = 82

Mekele: 5, 4, 5, 5, 2, 5, 2, 3, 3, 6, 3, 4 = 47 39% (where I got sick)

Axum: 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 5, 7, 4, 4 = 46

Gondor: 0, 0, 1, 3, 7, 5, 6, 2, 0, 1, 10, 9, 7 = 51

Bahir Dar: 8, 9, 7, 4, 7, 8, 7, 9, 9, 5, 9, 8 = 90  (won in the tie breaker)

Lalibela: 7, 6, 4, 5, 9, 3, 10, 9, 9, 8, 8, 10 = 88

Dire Dowa: 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 9, 8, 6, 8, 9, 8, 7 = 86

Harar: 2, 0, 1, 0, 2, 2, 3, 6, 9, 6, 10, 8 = 49

 

Djibouti 

AB:  10, 7, 5, 10, 9, 9, 10, 6, 10, 0, 4, 4 = 84

Douchann: 10, 7, 6, 8, 6, 8, 8, 6, 5, 10, 6, 10 = 90

 

 

I know, I know, this is so cryptic.  Whatever, it means something to me and it’s my blog.  I’ll end with a photo-thiopia.
