I have stayed for a week (7days), with free WiFi, early morning buffet breakfast and the room is clean, the staffs are helpful and the foods are good. The view for the city side is excellent but to avoid the high way sound I choose to be in the back side room. If you need any help it's easier to... More

I stayed there for free as a lay over. In general, it's Ok, you have a bed to sleep, good food, but in case if you pay you should be careful. This hotel is maximum 1-2 starts, very old, clean enough, but you got a feeling like you came to soviet style student residence. By the way they have free... More

This hotel suffers from its positioning - it's on a main road through Addis which means noise comes into the rooms throughout the night and the bright street lights outside mean bedrooms are illuminated throughout the night. The food was average and the staff did not put in any effort to make our stay pleasant!

I've stayed in this hotel three times in the last three years. It is the best hotel for value in addis in my opinion. It's 5 minutes drive from the airport and a short walk to a variety of restaurants and coffee houses. The friendship mall in across the road and a short taxi ride will bring you to the... More

This hotel was much better than the first one I got compliments of Ethiopian Airways. Request a room in the back not facing onto the main street. I got a decent evening's sleep. Food was ok...not great...but at least I could eat it.

Very pleasant stay in this family run small hotel. Very clean rooms and very nice staff. The restaurant is clean and a safe bet in Addis. Internet (WiFi) is only working partly. The area around is a construction site (Aug 2014) due to Light train construction nearby. I can recommend their taxi driver

Rooms are large enough and flat screen tv is an extra even if most channels are either in languages i do not undertand or not interesting . Rest of room is really poor . Lousy... More

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.
