The breakfast was ample.... More

Stayed here for two weeks and made special arrangements re price and room-size. They gave me a larger room. All in all, I was very happy here and most of the staff was extremely friendly. Breakfast is basic and, for a duration of two weeks, unbalanced. However, this is Africa and not Western Europe or North America. I would probably... More

For the price they are charging, I'd expect a little more. The rooms are really really small, and the water in the showers is not that hot. Also, there is no view at all from anywhere, and no laundry service offered. The location is decent though, not too far from the city center, and the staff is very helpful. I... More

The reviews I saw on this hotel led me to believe that it would be a good option for a business trip when most other hotels were booked. I was very disappointed, as it was lacking in many areas. First, the shower was terrible - it alternated between scalding and cold, with only a couple seconds transition in between. I've... More

Stayed here for two weeks in March 2013. Arranged for a special price in one of the larger rooms. The hotel is clean, safe with friendly staff. The surrounding area is not too nice, but one should not forget that it is Africa. It is easy to find a taxi though. The breakfast could be a bit more diverse as... More

We stopped to eat here after working out in the area; and actually ended up at another restaurant AFTER dinner because we were almost all still hungry! (3 out of 4 people)!! Food came out not as ordered, and barely enough "steak" to fill a hamburger bun. At these prices almost anywhere else in the city, you can get a... More

We've stayed in the Edna Addis Hotel for several nights in February 2013, and it was not good! The room was not only unattractive, it was plain dirty, and mind you, we had the suite! It took staff forever to get a towel rack fixed that fell of the wall on first touch. On one occasion staff entered the room... More
