8.2.Very good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I love this place. It was so safe. It even has a safe. A few times I forgot a valuable outside the safe and house cleaning came while I was out and never touched the valuables. They are very honest workers. All staff was very respectable at all times and everyone always looks good. They are all well groomed and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious everyday with a variety of buffet and fresh juice, coffee and tea with hot milk. French toast, pancakes, eggs all styles change daily from tiffed boiled eggs to scrambled with veggies. Gym was satisfactory- had all the weights and mirrors and machines required. Bike and Eliptical could use an upgrade. Also could use music in the gym. I had to work out with my cellphone beats. Didn’t try the sauna but it was always available 24 hours like the gym. So cool. Room service for food was not more expensive- e and my husband were completely happy here very good for all families or alone. Never noisy. Normal noise from outside nightlife could be blocked out with a low volume program with the television service in room. Good variety of channels nothing t all offensive. Christian or Muslim or meat everywhere was halal - no pork anywhere. Food so delicious and fruit shakes mmmmmmmm Bye Ethiopian Adventure. We Loved this Country and stay at Lobelia 5stars

    If you are looking for something inexpensive, its fine. If you are looking for something inexpensive and clean, look elsewhere. I woke up each morning with new insect bits, ranging from mosquitoes to some unidentifiable ones.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I was there in March and April 2020 during the global pandemic while the airport was closed. I stayed for about a month and found that the staff was very friendly and helpful and tried to make the stay as normal as possible during those stressful times. Very good breakfast. The small gym is nothing special but enough to do some light weights. Room was small but comfortable and shower had lots of hot water. TV had several news and movie channels in English. WiFi was functional but very weak and at one point was completely off for 5 days. Electricity seems to go out a lot in Addis but the hotel has a generator. Free shuttle to/from the airport. Recommended hotel in the Bole area.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Well past its prime, the rooms were roach infested - killed six in first room, went immediately downstairs and got a second room - killed three more before heading to bed. Cheap paint was seriously scuffed and marked. Seedy neighborhood.

    Great stay!!!

    We had a nice stay. Clean... quiet... staff pleasant. I wish the bathroom window would have been "special glass".. so folks could not see in. They upgraded us to a suite, which was nice. Food good!
