Family cozy bed and breakfast is located in Wollo Sefer, in the Bole area, a 10 minute drive from downtown in Addis. The first thing you'll notice when you arrive at the BnB is the friendly atmosphere the staff creates. Michael and Benji are very welcoming and helpful about everything and gives you advise about things to do in Addis... More

The place reflects its name as it is indeed homely and comfortable accommodation located in the Bole area of Addis. I received exceptional hospitality and assistance from the owner, Michael and his staff. This place is very welcoming, especially for a lone traveller.

You won't just have a place to stay but you will end up making friends for life with these amazing people. The... More

The rooms are clean and with new furniture and the breakfast is good as well. Definetely recommend this guesthouse to anyone who plans a trip to Addis Ababa. Also recommend... More

I am in Addis with two friends for an internship and did not know where to live when we arrived. We saw the great reviews for Family Cozy B&B and decided to stay there while we searched for apartments. Our week at the B&B was so great that we keep going back to hang out with Michael and the Family... More

I stay here regularly. The staff is always welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The place is always clean. Of course, like most places in Addis, they struggle sometimes with power cuts and while the convenience of being in the middle of things near Bole is great it's also on a busy street. The convenience to the airport is a bonus -... More

I recently visited Addis for a work conference and needed a place close to the downtown core but still wanted a local experience, the Family Cozy delivered that and so much more. Michael, Benji, and the whole Family crew are some of the most pleasant people you could ask to great you upon arrival in another country. They come to... More

Bit of a backpackers place with friendly and helpful staff in particular Michael. Rooms are ok a no noise as restaurant not there anymore. Good for a nights stay. Does not include airport pickup up and or drop off as stated in some of the booking engines

This was our welcome greeting from Michael when we arrived at 5:30am at this amazing B&B! It was our first (not last) time in Ethiopia and we couldn't have heard sweeter words! Benjamin picked us up at 5am and we enjoyed his companionship over the 2 weeks we were there. The friendly wonderful helpers at the B&B cooked us great... More
