A local guide recommended this hotel to me because apparently there are a lot of faranjis (strangers) staying here. The room was nice, the wifi worked, but it was a little bit too expensive. The stuff was nice and helpful and helped me out on my last day by organizing a cheap shared ride to the airport!

We stayed here as a study abroad group - some students had prior experience in Ethiopia & some did not. We all loved it - some even more than a fancier place we stayed up-country. The location is good for students - lots of local shops, restaurants & other distractions in walking distance, but safe and not too noisy. It... More

This is our third stay here. We stayed at a different guest house on our second to last visit and we regretted it. On a separate mission trip I stayed at multiple guest houses. They did not compare to the addis guest house. We were in Ethiopia for adoptions and the staff went out of their way to make sure... More

We stayed a week as a group. They had awesome breakfast, free laundry and FAST Wifi! Super close to the airport and the center of city. The staff was very welcoming and the owner was pretty chill and recommended nice places to go around town.

I stayed 2 nights in a suite room with bedroom and livingrom. We paid 54 dollars per night and since it was the first hotel it was ok, but compared to the other hotel I went, this was way too expensive, so try to get a reduction! Wifi was ok, (that was the most important thing for us), clean room,... More

This place is a good deal. I stayed here several nights, and there was always hot water. Plus wi-fi, always a perk. And they include free laundry service! Breakfast was fine, nothing spectacular but decent food. Very friendly staff. The room was basic but clean. The general manager was also very helpful and speaks excellent English and has a good...

Spent 4 nights here on a recent trip. I was picked up at the airport and the driver patiently waited for me while I reported my missing bag. The staff also helped me call Ethiopian Airlines tons of times! Restaurant downstairs is reliable and the WiFi was generally very fast. Staff were all very nice and helpful, and were responsive...

​Overpriced, shabby and noisy place to stay. Was kept awake at night by dogs barking and noise from guests walking up and down the staircase and corridors. At night time out came the cockroaches. The hotel offers airport transfers but from my experience don't expect them to turn up on time, or even for the right flight! Plus side: free... More

Stayed here on my first trip to Addis for court and returned for the Embassy appointment with my 15 month old son. I traveled alone on both trips and after the first stay at the AGH I was certain to return, never even considered any other hotel or guest house. Yonas, Gigi, and Yosef were wonderful hosts and treated my... More
