My partner and I stayed at Biruk B&B for 4 days at the start of our Ethiopian vacation and again for another 4 days when we had to unexpectedly return to Addis to get my partner to a good hospital. Both times, the owners-- a husband and wife team-- were amazing. The room was always very clean, and the breakfast... More

A friend and I stayed at the Biruk for four nights in June. The hosts were extremely accommodating, especially when we both had flight delays and we had arranged airport pick up. Everyone went out of their way to make us more comfortable and fulfill our needs. The location was ideal for us, near to Bole but off the main... More

This place is clean, safe, friendly, quiet and serves excellent breakfast! After a busy day in Addis it is the perfect spot to relax and have a good cup of coffee - and homemade popcorn - and enjoy the garden!

Arriving in Addis Ababa can be daunting - it's a sprawling metropolis at altitude, replete with the challenges of a huge developing city. So I felt fortunate and downright lucky to have found Biruk B&B. Peacefully situated in a verdant and low-key corner of the city nearby to the airport, restaurants, and other amenities, this family-run home truly nurtures a... More

We traveled in Ethiopia for a month and during that time passed through Addis Ababa several times. Each time we came home to the Biruk B&B. It's an oasis of peace in the city in a safe neighborhood, with lovely super-clean rooms, a nice garden, delicious breakfast and best of all:interesting and friendly owners who go out of their way...

As a family of 6 we were catered for very nicely in the upstairs room. Biruk is well positioned between Bole road and mehadane Alem ( not totally correct name sorry) so plenty of opportunity to walk to all conveniences eg bank, Internet, mini marts and great restaurants. We were made to feel very welcome and the breakfast was delicious.... More

We were met late at night by the owner at the airport, who was most pleasant and chatty. It is about a 10 minute drive to the guest house, and we were astounded at how busy Addis Ababa was. What then a nice surprise to find a quiet oasis down so little lane of peace and tranquility. The room we... More
