This hotel is comfortable and fairly quiet. The breakfast was good and there is wifi in the room. However, after staying in other similarly priced hotels in Addis, we realized that this hotel is not a good value for the money. Additionally, the travel agent at the hotel significantly over charged us for airline tickets.

This was my second visit to Ethiopia and last time we stayed in a more up market hotel, The Addis Regency was by far much better, the staff were very accommodating and the owner Mr Mack was more than kind. The rooms were very clean with lots of hot water. The food was good and the chef is more than... More

I've stayed here twice and both times, the receptionists had a slight attitude problem. I agree with the guy that said they treat Non-Ethiopians better. They were all teeth while talking to the foreigners who came after us. Very sad to be treated this way in ones own country. The waiters were so nice and helpful. Awesome shower, breakfast and...

We recently stayed at the Addis Regency for 6 nights and this is far and away the best hotel and value in Addis. We have stayed in many other hotels and we are so thankful that friends recommended this property as it is truly a GEM. The hotel is of very good quality and spotless clean. The thing that really...

The biggest draw for me is the very high quality showers, but this is not to say that other features of the hotel are lacking. The staff is very friendly (though a few struggle with English), breakfast is excellent and is promptly ready by 6am, food during other meals is on the better side, beds are large and comfortable, internet...

My sister and I recently stayed at Addis Regency Hotel. This is not a fancy Western hotel, the energy and hospitality is en par with the best hotels I've stayed at where they know your name and care about your stay in Addis. But maybe it's better. Mark, the hotel manager, runs this place with so much care and genuine... More

Stayed twice recently at this hotel in Addis Ababa. The hotel is absolutely beautiful inside. If you can, try to get a deluxe room as this type of room affords much more physical space than the standard rooms. The deluxe room also had an amazing shower- best out of the 5 hotels I stayed in in Ethiopia. If you are... More

I am lost for words how this hotel can be rated by trip advisor as one of the best places to stay in Addis. It is terrible, the staff is friendly and very helpful, but the rest is just not up to standard. It is clean but that is about it.

Dear Stephen, Sorry you were disappointed, with some services but happy with our staff members and cleanliness of the hotel, this was the first time Ethiopia hosted an international conference of this magnitude, no doubt it was chaotic through out the city as a result there were brief interruption with the internet and water main in the city and these...

Although the prices are a little on the steep side, it was certainly worth it for the excellent service. The owner ran things with an ever-present eye. He has friendly, welcoming and the staff were very efficient. We were offered free transport to the airport twice and given free drinks when we arrived. The rooms were very comfortable and the...
