I spent a week at Dreamliner Hotel while attending a workshop in Addis. I think the hotel is quite suitable for business travellers. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the wireless internet was working most of the time. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good, as were the various restaurants at the hotel.... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. In August 2014 we were woken in the early hours of the morning by a fire alert. I must admit that the hotel staff handled the situation pretty well. The most important aspect then was that no lives were lost. The owner, Captain Lulat was leading from the front! Having had this... More

It was the second time I stayed there, this time we were 2 in the room, but it is still ok, service is good, in addition to quick meals from Hotel, they have an Indian restaurant on the ground floor and a Steak House on the last floor.

We stayed in October 2014 and arrived in Addis with no idea where we were going to be staying. Dreamliner and other hotels had a booth at the airport, but the diligence of the Dreamliner rep had us seated immediately. We haggled on price but the young man was enterprising, and soon we were whisked away to the hotel which... More

The hotel is in a good central location but I found the room so airless that it made me ill and it took 2 hours to get a fan as I was told that there was no-one to open the store. The wi-fi didn't work at all. Breakfast was good with a lot of choice. Next to the hotel is... More

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Our team, especially the Management Team, works very hard to make sure that the service offered and the quality of our food, the look, design of our rooms and all the amenities onsite are second to none in Addis Ababa - while maintaining our inexpensive pricing that is often half of what...

Stayed there for 2 nights. Rooms arent clean and dimly lit. The bathroom was bare: 1 bar of soap and 1 towel. Breakfast was "minimalist" to say the least... During African Union summits (in January) the hotel - like all Addis hotels - multiply their rate by 4 ! you'd end up paying 300 USD for a hotel not worth... More

I've stayed in Dreamliner 3 times since Jan 2014 and each stay was for a minimum of 5 days. It is a good hotel for business travelers as it is located closer to the business district and Bole road is just a few minutes drive. It is quiet close to the airport and their pickup and drop service is of... More

I spent a week at the Dreamliner Hotel during a business visit to Addis. The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming and insisted that they carry my bags to my room.

I stayed in the Dreamliner for the second time after a lot of recommendations. It seemed to be going rather downhill. One lift broken, the room was not as clean as I would have liked and the internet was variable. The breakfast was uninspiring. The staff however were very friendly and helpful.
