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.

Close to the airport, a very kind staff, helpful and friendly, price is very reasonable. The single queen room is very clean, confutable with modern furniture. The buffet breakfast need improvement and to add more options. Over all recommended for families and friends visiting Addis Ababa. Cheers.

Stayed here on a business trip and thankfully was here for just 2 nights! Was put up in block B, which was really old and run down. Tiny rooms including a tiny bed, bathroom where tiles are falling apart, thin walls wher you can hear the plumbing if someone else uses the water and the list goes on. The room... More

As some reviews state the rooms and facilities leave something to be desired at times but overall the property is very good. The shining star of the hotel is the staff. They are always pleasant and very helpful. The proximity to the airport make this an ideal choice if you wish to rest or recuperate after a long journey to... More

I stayed at the Ambassador during a business trip to Addis. It's super close to the airport but very far away from central Addis. Rooms are big, beds are a hard -- I ended up sleeping on top of the comforter to get relief. Staff was nice but not super friendly, nor very efficient. Wifi access was terrible, but that's... More

The Bole Ambassador could very well be simply called the Ambassador Hotel. My experience with the Bole Ambassador started a week before I arrived at the hotel. When I was applying for my visa at the Ethiopian Embassy in Johannesburg there was a lot of information required as pertains to my stay in Addis, through Mr Manaye Tesfaye, the hotel... More

We stayed here at either end of a month's tour in Ethiopia and found it very comfortable with an excellent, large room on the 6th floor of the main hotel building (not the apartments). The restaurant served a good choice of food which was served hot and freshly cooked. The buffet breakfast was marvellous and had the best range of... More
