I stayed for 5 days in the Hotel, which was optimal for basic needs. The price was right for the facilities they offer. But internet was very poor in most days and bath/toilet facilities are sub-optimal. Food is nice in the restaurants and the bar is open/nice especially if you are football fan - locals crowd there on match days... More

The dreamliner is past its best. Rooms very tired and in need of a good clean and redecoration. No hot water after 8am in the morning. No air conditioning needed to have the window open which makes for a very noisy room. Ate in the Indian restaurant all of our party were ill. Internet connection iffy at best

Dreamliner has all the basics an hotel should have but you never know if it works and it really depends on which room you get (you may find a shower that is so old that water goes out from the sides, baby cockroaches in the wardrobe or you are on the wrong side of the internet modem). The breakfast is... More

Situated near the market area, this hotel is known for its Indian restaurant Zaika. The rooms are good and beautifully decorated. The rates are also very reasonable. Only one has to be careful while moving out in night because the street in front doesn't appear to be very safe. The food in Zaika is very tasty and a real paradise... More

Stayed in a twin room, which was quite large. The hotel has a dated feel but all the basic amenities, that said the internet service was often epileptic. The helpfulness of reception staff varied, however all others were particularly helpful. The buffet breakfast was alright, while the Indian restaurant next door serves delicious food, but beware portions are huge.

I had the privilege of staying at the Dreamliner Hotel during my recent trip to Addis Ababa. I must confess I was a bit unsure when we arrived, wondering if the location was ideal as I am used to staying in facilities withdrawn form the bustle of a busy African city. I was happy at the pick-up from the airport... More

I have a small cramped and unkempt room, experienced consistently lousy food, and got ill and needed emergency care! Whatever you do, if you must stay there, avoid the food, especially the buffet. Not only me, but several of my business colleagues got sick on the food and needed emergency care as well. Very unpleasant experience.

Hotel Dreamliner was a choice to stay primarily because of its Indian Restaurant "Zaika" and it was a good decision I should stay. The Hotel is located at just 20 mins from Airport and very easily accessible. It has good amenities except a Swimming Pool and multi cuisine restaurants. The food at Zaika was really good and the only drawback... More
