Stayed here for about two months, and it definitely suited my needs. Very close to Bole and all the pricey hotels, but at a fraction of the price. The internet was a bit spotty at times, but the room was made spotless everyday and everyone is wonderful.

Location was very central and safe, the staff was extremely professional and accommodating, the room was clean & spacious. Bed was very comfortable. Pancake, fresh orange juice and coffee/tea for breakfast were delicious. A perfect combination of everything I needed during my stay in Addis Ababa. Such a pity I only spent three nights there.

Staff are always pleasant and helpful, and the manager is professional and quick to respond to emails when making booking arrangements. The rooms are very attractive, spotless,... More

We have stayed on several occasions at the Aclana Lodge and always find it accommodating for our needs. The rooms are always well kept, clean and comfortable and the staff and owners are always very helpful and friendly. Good internet available most of the time and always a good breakfast if we don't leave to early! The only real negative... More

I really enjoyed my time at the Lodge. Staff was amazing and the location is great. It is located very close to shopping and food services. I, particularly, liked the management team that does whatever it can to make your stay comfortable and attend to all your room/trip needs quickly. Rooms were very clean and internet connection was FREE, fast,... More

I stayed here for a week in december 2012 & I was pleasantly satisfied with the service, the rate and finally the room. There is no restaurant at the lodge but they have free breakfast. It's located in the center of the city, walking distance to many restaurants. I will definitely stay here if I ever go back to ethiopia... More

Stayed here for a week in late May. Clean, very large rooms with a small kitchenette. TV had many channels, clean room everyday, felt safe and secure. The staff was very responsive and nice. Great location although taxi cabs don't know it, but walking distance to a ton of things. Safe grounds and relatively quiet. Great breakfast included and stellar... More
