Biruk B&B truly is your home away from home while in Addis. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment at the guesthouse. The atmosphere is wonderful with a classical house in a wonderful green garden. Extremely friendly staff that will assist you and truly make you feel home. The guesthouse is conveniently located close to the airport in... More

We had a great time! The rooms were clean and well kept and the pre-arranged dinner was fantastic! The b&b is close to the airport (+/-10mins) in a modern suburb and in walking distance to Africa Street, where there are banks, restaurants and general stores! The owners and staff are excellent and very willing to help you with anything including... More

What hospitality! This is a very personal guesthouse in the family's home in a very beautiful, secure part of Addis. Located on a pretty, flowering, quiet street in the area between Bole and Medhane Alem, it is a short quiet walk to both down well guarded streets. The GH itself is in a quiet compound with a cute lawn and... More

Peaceful house, in a convenient location for the Airport with clean rooms at a good price. Stopped here for two nights and enjoyed the breakfasts on both mornings, the hot showers and found the staff to be friendly. Will organise pick-ups from the airport even at odd times but remember to print off the instructions for meeting the driver!

Visiting Ethiopia after we worked here 30 years ago. A very nice and peaceful B+B that makes you feel at home. Very friendly hosts. Rooms are small but nice and cosy. Very close to the airport. Nice little garden.

Just back from Ethiopia - stayed at Biruk B&B for two days and enjoyed the hospitality of it's owners. It is located at a very secure place in Addis, close to the airport as well as the fantastic Habesha club, practically in walking distance where you can watch amazing performances of live Ethiopian music and dancing. Also close to Bole... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Biruk. As a first time traveller to Ethiopia, I had a lot of apprehensions about selecting the right place to stay. Biruk was selected by our local co-ordinator and it was situated at a very convenient location, the rooms were extremely clean with good linens and all basic amenities. The security looked good and... More

We stayed here for around three weeks. We had the upstairs back rooms which suit a family of four as there is a bathroom between and a small balcony. Wifi helped us keep in contact and although the power goes off in the area often we found it fine. The proximity is close to shops, banks etc. The breakfast is... More

This is a wonderful little B&B. Just off Bole Rd, so really convenient for airport and town, but down a quiet, leafy little lane that seems miles away from the noise of the main drag. Clean, comfy rooms, most of them round a small, flower-filled garden, great breakfasts and you can walk to the excellent Antica restaurant for an evening... More

I stayed 25 days at Biruk B & B while working in Addis in August 2014. It is in a quiet location, convenient for a diverse range of restaurants, close to the airport as well as to the centre and it is well run. The owners are very helpful, but not intrusive. The accomodation is fine with both newer and... More
