This is decent hotel by African standards. It is clean, has running hot and cold water, western toilet, restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. Plus the bar has a balcony to watch the NGO's drive past with their police escorts out riders. Its close to the airport. I will use this hotel again.

This hotel is very close to the airport, which was good for transit...Everything about KZ is small, but nice for middle comfort. I have been pleased with personnel...very gentle and present for help. This is not the best hotel in Addis and far away the worse. Will be happy to return during transit.

Very small budget hotel. Are you young and don't request high standards this could be the hotel for you. The hotel's standard was too low. Cold water, carpets from wall to wall which is difficult to keep clean, electricity outlets were hanging in the wires. On the positive side the staff was very kind and they make good coffee.

First stayed here 4 years back(Xmas 2010) and passed through few days ago(July 2014). Just noted very marginal improvements over these years. Ok, the TVs are now flat-screen as opposed to then but much more changes/modernization is much expected as KZ is bereft of luxuries! This trip was a night in transit, is just about 5 minutes to the airport__that's... More

KZ is a great hotel, clean, comfortable and highly professional staff. From the hotel bus driver to the guys at the restaurant, all displayed friendliness and hospitality. I will most definitely request to stay at the KZ again...infact, I did but was told it was fully booked (not surprising). Will keep going back there again and again

We were 3 couples on a 5 day tour in Ethiopia. We stayed in Addis Ababa for 2 nights in the end of June and chose KZ Hotel because of its location, not so far away from the airport and not so far away from the centre. If you are flying out of Addis Ababa in the early morning hours... More
