Just finished up a 2.5 week trip to Ethiopia, coming from the US. My 3 friends and I picked Family Cozy because of the strong reviews. We were immediately greeted by Michael, who is sincere, high energy, knowledgable, and will stop at nothing to ensure you feel right at home. He immediately walked us to a spectacular restaurant "Tropical Light"... More

A friend and I stayed at Family Cozy at the beginning and the end of our trip around Ethiopia. It definitely lives up to its name! Upon arrival Micheal and the cozy crew welcomed us and helped us right away in finding bus tickets, a place to eat, connecting to wifi, laundry, etc. The staff speaks English which was great...

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.

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
