A fire broke out on early Sunday morning, 11 January 2015. With the cooperation of the fire brigade , government agencies, neighbors, guests and our staffs, we have managed to save substantial part of the historical building. During and after the fire accident, we have received numerous phone calls, emails and personal visits. We, therefore, express our deepest gratitude to all those who have supported us during this difficult time. We would also like to announce that the hotel is partially operational with 75 rooms, the vegan buffet, bar, cafe and limited ale-cart menu. In due time, we will restore Taitu to its former grandeur. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued patronage and support to Taitu. Come one, come all and keep alive the Taitu spirit!
