Right. I stayed in Addis for 7 nghts in March 2012 and loved it. Firstly, I recommend Altitude Guest House highly, if like me you are a single traveller, on a relative budget, wanting to see the the delights of Addis. Although I spent some travelling outside the city, I used the guest house as a base and it was... More

I stayed in the Altitude guest house for a month whilst working in Addis - I stumbled across it online, and could not have been more delighted when I arrived. The owners, Eddie and Lisa, are incredibly friendly, kind and helpful - if I ever had a problem they'd try to sort it out immediately, and they were almost always... More

This is a great option for those wanting a laid back and friendly stay in Addis. The guest house is run by an Ethiopian / Irish couple who are incredibly helpful and friendly - it really feels like you are staying in their home. The rooms are clean and comfortable and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Really recommend... More

The location is great, the house is always clean, the breakfast selection is excellent, the internet is fast, and Eddie provided me with a... More

I found Altitude to be quite a find and was very pleased. Eddie and Liza are great and their staff are very helpful. The house is clean and neat and if it doesn't meet your needs just mention it and they will work to resolve. There was a problem with the bathroom shower draining that annoyed me, but I got... More
