We spent some great days at Eyerusalem's truly charming home/oasis (which is very well located). Eyersualem is the perfect host, so kind, welcoming and generous with great tips for exploring the city. Breakfast and dinner is fantastic, the room was beautifully decorated, super clean and cozy. Well, what shall I say more. We simply had a great time (thank you,... More

We stayed at Abbabs Villa for 10 days while working with the Mother Teresa Nuns. It was a wonderful peaceful place to return to after a busy day. Charming surroundings with lots of history,a very helpful and interesting owner. We ate there most nights and found the good vegetarian fare quite adequate.It is easy to get around Addis from there.... More

My family and I spent several days at Abbaba's Villa in Addis Ababa. What a lovely place! Quiet, historic, committed to preserving Ethiopian culture. Meeting the owner, Eyerusalem, was one of the highlights of our trip to Ethiopia. She is a wonderful person and now a friend. As a visitor, I appreciated the hospitality and care, and also loved the... More

Abbaba's Villa is a very peaceful Guest house with many different corners to sit, read, write, relax - with a wonderful garden and a beehive - Eyerusalem is a brilliant host, Workeye is a fabulous cook - Located next to Abo Church, between German and French Embassy - not an easy destination to reach (with minibus). The Villa is unique,... More

I had a lovely time staying at Abbaba’s Villa. The owner Eyerusalem made you feel very at home and could not do enough for you - a really wonderful hostess. You could relax in the wonderful garden or inside in the very tastefully decorated living rooms. Having toured Ethiopia this was one of the best places I have stayed in... More

I travel for work, and have stayed in lots of guesthouses and hotels over the last few years - this is one of the best I've stayed in. The owner, Eyerusalem, really treats you as a guest rather than a customer - she organised my weekend trip to Lake Winchi, shared meals with me and the other guests, and really... More

My tour company, Stunning Ethiopian Tours, arranged a visit and dinner here. Its conveniently located in Addis, Ms. Gedlu is a superb hostess. The house and its history is interesting. Dinner was delicious and the conversation fascinating. A hi-lite of my 21 day Ethiopian tour. Although I was not staying at the guest house, all the guest rooms looked large... More

In September,2014, my family and I stayed for two 5-day stretches at Abbaba's Villa, located in a quiet part of Addis Ababa, northeast of the center. As noted in other reviews, the home is an Italian style villa, dating (I believe) from the early 1930s. It is on a lovely plot of land, with open areas with small flower gardens,... More

I lived in Ethiopia for a few years before coming back for a month-long visit, during which I stayed at Abbaba's Villa. It's the best guest house you can find in Addis, not least because of Eyerusalem, the gracious and lovely owner. I felt so completely nurtured by her and her staff. We often had lunch or dinner together, and... More
