Breakfast is included, which we enjoyed, hot water was great, a nice little restaurant round the corner, called... More

I've stayed at Afro Land Lodge three times now on business trips and will always make this my first choice in Addis. The rooms are large and very comfortable, the wifi is good, the hot water is reliable and it's in a great location, but the best thing about this place is the staff. Assefa and his team are so...

Hot water, credit card payments, included breakfast to your order, and delivery from a local restaurant for other meals. there are plenty of eating options in... More

I travel to Ethiopia at least once a year, either solo or with our group, and this is where we'll be staying on all future trips! Afro Land offers a central location, breakfast in your room daily, attentive & professional staff, reliable WiFi and DOES accept credit cards, as their website states. (most hotels change this policy upon check-out, stating... More

I would recommend Afroland to everybody who goes to Addis. It is small and quiet, the rooms are extremely clean and the staff (management and support staff) are very courteous. The rooms have a kitchenette fully equipped just in case you do not want to eat out. And if you do there are a variety of restaurants just within walking... More

This is my third stay there, and as usual, the service is terrific! I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you are looking for a well-appointed yet simple place to stay while in Addis, AfroLand is the place. Great service, great breakfast, free shuttle to/from airport.

I stayed here for about 2 weeks and the stay was excellent. The manager is very friendly and helpful, as well as the staff. Clean room, great breakfast, good Wi-fi connection, and a comfy bed. I would definitely recommend staying here, whether it's for a night, weeks, or months. Great for students in Addis for the summer.

I have been in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in April, 2014 for about 2 weeks. It wasn't my first visit to Ethiopia, but this time I reserved my accommodation at a new guest house called 'Afro land Lodge'. It wouldn't be a surprise if I rate it as the best guest house in Addis Ababa, because the service they provide for... More

The Afro Lodge was a great find. The rooms include a salon & kitchenette, a good sized open plan apartment. The guest house is conveniently located in a safe area with a short walk to restaurants, bars etc. I've stayed in a few places in Addis for around the same price, this place beat them all on quality, size and...

There were some issues that were understandable - such as no power from the plug and wifi for a day - there were heavy rain when we were there and also a construction site nearby so the situation might be out of the control. The problem were fixed the next morning. However, we were allocated to a room which the... More
