Hotel Soramba is rated 3 stars. I have found it very suitable as a place in the capital city on 4 different trips to Ethiopia. The rooms are comfortable; the included breakfast is fine and the Muslim chant early each morning reminds you that you are in a different country. The hotel has a good (not great) restaurant and very... More

I have been looking for a new place to stay when I visit Addis, and thought this would be the place. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but thought that, if it was good, it would be worth it. It was right on the street, which made it very noisy at night. And the mosque, which... More

We've had an extended stay here and had a chance to see that this three star hotel has much to offer. We have been pleasantly surprised. We feel really well looked after and welcomed. All the staff are smart and extremely helpful. Our room is comfortable and spacious. The food is good and varied. Any small concerns have been immediately... More

Big & Clean rooms. Cooperative staff, nice food especially for the fish lovers. Person can surely accompany with his/her family members as quality standards & service is maintained in the hotel. You can surely include airport transfers at much reasonable rates in your package.

This small hotel is nothing fancy but considering the area, I found the accommodations and staff warm and welcoming. Beds are firm and street noise can be a problem but for the price and the hospitality it is a solid bet.

I stayed at the Soramba for a week. Overall, I found the experience very reasonable. In terms of location, the hotel was well situated for me as I was doing some work at the National Museum, which is only about 10 minutes away by cab. When I arrived, the concierge was extremely helpful and arranged for me to get an... More

Our first stop in Ethiopia. Wasn't expecting much hotel-wise but figured the capital city would have decent lodging and services. Let's start with the good: we were allowed to check-in at 8 am vs the official check-in time of 3 pm. The rest: The first room we were given had a whole wall covered with peeling paint from a leak,... More

I was guest at this hotel for two weeks in November. It was by far the worst experience I have ever had at any hotel I have been to. The only reason I stayed for that long was because they made me pay all of it at check in and refused to refund my money when I wanted to leave... More
