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

I stayed at this hotel in December 2013 for one night. I had pleasant stay, so I would like to recommend this hotel. The location is convenient (it is close to the airport and big supermarkets.) The room is clean and comfortable (good speed wi-fi). Hotel fee includes wi-fi, airport pick-up and drop-off, breakfast. Hotel reception staffs give good amount... More

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

Good friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, the staff are really friendly and keen to help. The food in the restaurant is better than other hotels nearby and the waitresses/waiters plus kitchen staff are keen to adapt and modify the meals when they can according to your requirements e.g. less cheese on the pizza!

You stay in this hotel if you want a key location. It is basically in heart of Addis Ababa with a lot of transportation, restaurants and cafes. It is also close to everything. Other than the location, the hotel is small and the service is okay

This is my first review on TripAdvisor, felt I had to provide feedback for KZ because I had such a nice stay there! I stayed there for more than 2 weeks and during that time the staff couldn't have made me feel more at home. Everyone knew my name and took the time to chat to me anytime I passed... More
