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

We were booked in here by a local after spending a night at the Faro hotel which was a complete disaster! The Ambassador is fairly conveniently located down a side road just off Bole road at the one end of Bole Road. The airport is also just a few minutes drive away. The hotel comprises thre buildings and we stayed... More

I highly recommend this hotel whether you come with... More

Staying at the Bole Ambassador as it is close to the airport. Very clean large rooms, unfortunately the beds are extremely hard, some people may like this, but not for me. The staff are very helpful and courteous. We will be staying 1 more night when we leave Ethiopia, hopefully I can request a little softer bed. Would recommend this... More
