The hotel is good and the location is good. Th esleeping facilitues are o.k. It's good for business trips and for a short time. The staff from the reception is smiling and professional. No any troubles.

Wouldnt stay here again. Was on a business trip and the hotel was paid-for by the client so I didnt have much issues to be honest. Its a bit far from the airport. Restaurant is ok, manageable bar. Breakfast spread is decent (from an Addis standard). Rooms are old, and a bit damp. Furniture is old. Stay away.

Stayed here on an overnight transit with Ethiopian Airlines in July 2012: accommodation included with the ticket. Located a long way from the airport in an industrial area. Not really sure why the airline chose this place. Free wifi in the lobby but not in the rooms. Strong smell of cigarette smoke throughout the hotel. Basic buffet breakfast included. Shower... More

I do know that this is Africa, so we cannot expect world-class experiences. I could not sleep at all, with the drug dealers outside my window, and a party upstairs. I also got food poisoning from the buffet for supper. Wifi was non existent, but the staff were able to charge my cellphone so I could inform my family of... More

Large king size room but inadequate facilities. No desk, internet connection not available, very basic furniture and laminate floor. OK for a transit but not for any more than one night. Avoid rooms facing the very busy road -there is no double glazing and the traffic noise is constant. Redeeming feature is the staff

Ethiopian Airlines has put me here a couple of times while waiting for a connection flight. The location in the middle of an industrial area is a bit weird, but if you are here just to wait for a connecting flight, it doesn't really matter. Wifi is there, but it works so and so. Rooms are big and furniture is... More

Wound up here overnight for a layover from the airport. Room was clean and bed was alright. Shower wasn't exactly hot, but it wasn't cold either. Food is served buffet style. It wasn't great but was adequate enough. Staff were generally ok. They advertise wifi but was told it doesn't actually exist. There is a computer in the lobby for... More

I was at the hotel in February 2010 but the website won't let me choose that far back. I was there looking around and then having coffee after meeting up with my ex after 20 years. We were taken aback by the music that was playing as it was one of our favourites. We were going to have some cake... More
