The hospitality at this guest house was phenomenal! The guesthouse has a keen understanding of western expectations, and provided the most spacious and well functioning accommodations we had in Ethiopia. Everything we needed was taken care of from SIM cards to hair appointments. The free airport transfers are a real plus, This guest house would get five stars from me... More

I stayed here as a last resort and that was a great decision. I was a bit worried about the place because I had never heard of it and didnt have time to do the trip advisor run. The rooms we had were very well kept, very clean and the bathrooms were also very well maintained. The only snag is... More

The staff members are warm and extremely considerate/helpful/all-around wonderful human beings. Just being in their presence you'll have to fight the urge to hug them. They make a delicious, massive breakfast on a daily basis, and the rooms sparkle with cleanliness. We needed to drive a lot here and Lee was very accommodating by not only hooking us up transportation-wise,... More

We stayed here twice on arrival and departure from Addis. Lee is an excellent host going above and beyond expectations to make us feel welcome. One evening when we were tired from a long day of sightseeing, she gave us a delicious home-made dinner and wine and would not take any payment! On another occasion she personally took us to...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night only but we would have stayed longer if we could! The room was big with a decent ensuite bathroom, though the decor is a little dated if you care about that kind of stuff (we didn't really). The breakfast was enormous and Lee who runs the place was incredibly helpful and... More

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
