This hotel is without doubt one of the most enjoyable and pleasant Hotel properties I have stayed in. The friendliness and attention of the staff is first class. The rooms are as you would expect from a 5 star hotel, impeccably clean and well stocked up with guest amenities. Also I would like the manager for his help.

Although this hotel is centrally located in the Bole district, the facility is poorly maintained. Most of the rooms does not have air conditioning units and the rooms are not cleaned daily by the staff. One can see that the floors and walls have chips and cracks.

Not bad and not far from the Airport. Very clean if you are in the C Block (main building where we have reception). Avoid block A and B as much as you can. Block A is really tacky and needs a complete overhaul. the Rooms are dingy and stuffy. Not a place to stay if you are asthmatic cos you... More

Hotel staff do not all speak english. Reception, and the manager need to be asked if you need an inteligable answer. There were no tourist brocures or information, the reception couldnt fathom that people would want to tour the area. Upon walking outside on our own we discovered why - we were swarmed by beggers as soon as we were... More

This hotel is close to the airport which is nice after a long flight. It was very clean and has a good breakfast. The rooms are comfortable. The beds are very hard which I like but some don't prefer. The reason I rated sleep only average is we kept our windows open to have air and there are a lot... More

Very nice hotel. Attentive staff; clean, spacious rooms. No extra amenities (pool, fitness, etc). Consistent wifi, good morning breakfast. Good location in Bole area. Great business venue with free airport shuttle.
