I stayed here last year twice. It happens to be in a slightly out of the way place, but close to Bole Road and Dembel City Center. The owner is very nice and it is very nicely located across from the Greek Club, a bit of an Addis landmark, which has fabulous and reasonably priced Greek Food. The rooms are... More

Stayed for 3 weeks just came back last night Feb,10,2014.An excellent hotel, well situated being in the heart of the City. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable and attention to cleanliness was apparent. Food was plentiful and fresh. Importantly the staff were very friendly and attentive, which made for a most enjoyable highly recommending this excellent hotel.

This older style apartment hotel has good points and bad points. It is expensive for what it is, my twin bedroom apartment did not really have hot water (although the system appeared to work the pressure is too poor for it to be effective) and the toilet/shower & bath recess leaked all over the floor. I also got electrocuted by... More

Found this place after our other hotel (Addis Regency) wanted to charge us double the normal rate (100 vs 200 USD) because of an AU summit taking place. I called Lion's Den and they said no problem, they don't inflate their rates because they value their regular customers. We actually liked Lion's Den much more and ended up returning there... More

This hotel is great. The staff are lovely and it is well located. It is reasonably priced and the rooms are basic but clean and tidy. The breakfast provided with the room is also ok as far as Ethiopian food goes!. Make sure you head across the road to the Greek club to eat, great food and service also.

Wonderful friendly and helpful staff, spacious apartment, clean, comfortable and quiet. What more could I need. Well maybe just an electric kettle to make my coffee. Fortunately I always travel with my own kettle so I had everything I needed. Thanks to all at the Lions Den. Your hospitality was really appreciated. Ann
