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

Received a room in this hotel courtesy of ethiopian airlines. People working in this hotel are very friendly . This is where compliments end . 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.

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
