We stayed at Wassamar a number of times over the summer of 2014 when in Ethiopia for work. They are by far the best value for money in Addis Ababa. The rooms are clean, spacious and very comfortable for extended stays (we stayed in a suite). The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the hotel is well situated for... More

I have just returned 4 day stay at Wassamar. I ended up there as a last resort when my regular place at jupiter was fully booked. I wasnt expecting to enjoy myself and was pleasantly surprised. Reception was great. Every staff bent over backwards to accommodate all our needs. I was able to use the business centre well into the... More

Right along the African avenue. On the highway, you can easily miss it when driving, even with taxi. Generally clean. Good price for what you get. Quiet. I got a room facing the highway which I did not mind. Ethiopia isn't as noisy as Nairobi roads.. Average breakfast options..some cooked stuff available, all complementary. Gym and sauna complementary as well.... More

The Wassamar Hotel is not very representative from the outside, but inside the hotel is very nice. The lobby is located at 2'nd floor and manned with a very helpful staff. The rooms are high standard even though it is not European standards. The (double) bed was very comfortable and I had a wonderful sleep. The Internet was unfortunately very... More

If it is somewhere you need to collapse and just sleep with a reasonable breakfast in the morning, then this will do. Easy access to the airport. Clean linen and average sized rooms. Don't expect 5 or even 4 star service. The reception staff can range anywhere from exceptional to "why are they there". It depends. As long as your... More

There are some positive things about this hotel. The location is great, staff are friendly, gym is great and food is good. The downside - and it was quite a major downside for me - was that there were fleas in my bed. I couldn't quite believe it at first - it doesn't look like the kind of hotel that... More

We used the Wassamar Hotel as a base for an extended business trip to Ethiopia and returned to the hotel 5 times over a 3 week period. Each time the stay was a sanctuary after long drives and sometimes poor quality accommodation in the provinces. Fast internet, comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, pleasant staff and an efficient laundry service... More

The Wassamar Hotel opened a couple of years ago on Bole Road...convenient to the airport and some good restaurants, it seems to focus on business travelers. My wife and I stayed only to nights before traveling south, but found the hotel a pleasant respite from the big, pricey hotels in the center of town that mainly cater to the expense-account... More
