    Comfortable stay

    Comfortable one night stay for transit in Addis Ababa. We arrived late so we didn’t want to head out to eat. We ordered room service but food came cold. Room was fine, had everything we needed. Bedside lamp wasn’t working though.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Clean and quiet with a pleasant and helpful staff. The breakfast variety was ample, with lots of variety, especially for vegetarians. The airport pickup requires patience, but I think that is more an issue with Bole than with the hotel.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great value for money - convenient location and friendly helpful staff. I thought the breakfast was good but wasn't so keen on the restaurant food. I had a clean spacious room, with good (by ethiopian standards) wifi. The property as a whole is a little frayed around the edges but nothing that should put one off

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very nice hotel, good value, friendly staff. Unfortunately there were internet issues (probably not directly related to the hotel). The shuttle pick-up on arrival was also a no-show for 40 minutes and only after a call on a borrowed phone in the parking lot.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We flew into Addis Ababa at almost 11 PM after our flight was over an hour late and was grateful to have a shuttle waiting for us and the driver had our name on a sign. I was a little nervous when we turned off the main road into what appeared to be an alley after driving through a not so great neighborhood but felt the hotel was safe, he staff was super friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast was a food mix of Ethiopian and western cuisine. The travel agent next door was able to arrange us a driver through Merkato Market at a price well below what I was finding on the Internet. Thank you for a great experience in your lovely city!!
