I had to book a room with a separate bathroom on the third floor and was wary at first. Happily the spotless bathroom was just outside my door and just for me! The room was bright and had a white fluffy duvet cover (which sells me everytime!) and wonderful quality linens. It was not large but on the same floor... More

Thank you so much to Lee and her wonderful team at GT. I really don't know how I would have survived the trip if I had been elsewhere as I got severe food poisoning in a restaurant outside of Addis and Lee brought me to hospital, translated and waited with me until I was able to come back to the...

Lee and her staff are wonderful! They have taken care of our every need (including getting us a takeaway when we just wanted a night in). She has been able to arrange trips for us (the Wenchi trip is breathtaking), and has done her utmost to ensure that our stay in Addis was as brilliant as possible. The rooms are... More

My husband, 5-year old son and I recently stayed at the GT Guesthouse for 3-weeks while completing the adoption process for our baby boy. Prior to leaving to Ethiopia, I extensively researched the best guesthouses in Addis Ababa, as we originally anticipated we might have to stay in Ethiopia for 4 to 6 weeks. Safety, location, cleanliness, kitchenette accommodations and... More

This is a fantastic place to stay in Addis. The rooms are of a high western guest house standard and the service was second to none. The owner Lee made us feel very welcome and went out of her way to ensure that we had a good stay and did everything that we wanted to do. She even drove us... More

First trip to Africa. Stayed two weeks in January. Pre-trip spent lots of time researching accomodation options on Trip Advisor. Pleased to report the research really paid off when I eventually selected the highly rated GT Guest House. Breakfast, WIFI and laundry service all great. In particular, Lee was very helpful in assisting me to make bookings with tour companies.... More

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
