Travel Information

The Conference Committee will post travel information on this site as it becomes available.


Hotels and Pensions

Pensions and hotels of middle to high level are available in Mekelle and surroundings. Please find a partial list of hotels and pensions below.

Notes:
  1. Each participant is requested to manage his/her hotel reservation. If you need assistance, we may refer you to a private travel agent.
  2. The rate is written in terms of USD, but hotels basically accept payment in Ethiopian Birr. US Dollar/Euro/British Pound can be exchanged to Ethiopian Birr in sevaral banks in Mekelle. Some other currencies (AED, CAD, CHF, DJF, DKK, JPY, NOK, SAR, SEK, ZAF) can also be exhanged to Ethiopian Birr at the main branch of the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia in Mekelle.
  3. In some of the cheaper hotels, separate fee may be required for breakfast/airport shuttle.
  4. Regarding the payment by credit card, the availability may change over time, so the participants themselves are advised to check with the hotel if needed. Althogh credit card payment is usually available in high-end hotels, it is generally better to prepare payment by cash.
  5. As cheaper hotels may not be experienced in managing reservations well in advance, it is recommended to confirm the reservation with the hotel/pension towards the start of the conference (such as 1-2 weeks before the conference).
  6. Some of the cheaper hotels may not be regularly checking their emails. Thus, if you do not get a response from them, we advise you to call them.
