We stayed here as a family of 5 for a week and Lee and her staff were amazing and certainly did everything they possibly could to help us with anything that was needed during our stay and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were all very spacious and clean and if we were missing anything or something didn't work... More

We stayed at GT Guesthouse for a month - Lewam (Lee) and her staff were most gracious and helpful - they helped out in every way imaginable. I've stayed in a number of different guest houses in Addis over the past 10 years and GT Guesthouse is far and away the best -- even better than some high priced hotels.... More

Our family of seven just finished two visits to the GT Guesthouse, and really enjoyed it. Lee is a wonderful host (she lived in the US for five years and speaks perfect English) The rooms were spacious and clean, the service top notch and we always felt well taken care of. We liked the yummy breakfasts and the reliable internet.... More

We have lived in Ethiopia for several years now, and this is our favorite place to stay in Addis. The service is excellent. The rooms are impeccably clean, with sparkling clean bathrooms. The breakfast is outstanding and always served on time. They have WiFi that is fast and reliable. I honestly can't say enough good things about GT. We have... More

I stayed on two different occasions at the GT Guest House (same trip) and was very pleased with my experience. It was hands-down the best place I stayed on two trips to Ethiopia, and the best in Addis. Every breakfast was excellent, with good service. Absolutely loved the avocado smoothies! The room was spacious, clean, comfortable; bathroom was also nice,... More

I've been traveling regularly to Ethiopia for the last 16 years and have stayed at a variety of accommodations - large hotels to small guest houses. The GT Guesthouse has them all beat. It is clean and comfortable with a well-organized and professional staff, offers dependable services (water, power and wifi) AND serves delicious breakfasts. Who could ask for more?

Our volunteer group of 11 people just spent nearly two weeks at the GT Guesthouse. I can't recommend it highly enough. Lewan and her family/employees were incredibly helpful in all respects; it was spotlessly clean, and every morning we were treated to a different and delicious breakfast. Close to everything but the suites also have kitchens so if you don't... More

About a 2km walk from Meskel Square. A very nice guesthouse with friendly staff. Room was clean and quite homely. Shared bathroom and common room with TV (with a number of channels available via satellite). Breakfast included in the morning - as there wasn't many guests when I was there - I could request a time for my breakfast. Free... More

I'm not playing, I really would give it six stars if I could. GT Guesthouse is without a shadow of a doubt the best guesthouse you could find on.the.planet. You heard me right, the planet! I can't recommend this place enough. It is smack down in the middle of Addis so you're close to everything, the rooms are subtly beautiful,... More
