Excellent service and provisions, and they were always "right there," and frequently anticipating needs. They also understood Western expectations and approaches to travel and hospitality (not a given when dealing cross culturally as here). Well done - very well done!

We came to Addis 18 hours after scedual because of much hassel with Ethiopian Airlines. Still the driver waited for us outside the airport, which was perfect! Unfortunately I was really sick the first few days of our stay, but we could't have ended up at a more perfect place; the staff at GT came up to our room at... More

The rooms were very clean and has a family atmosphere.... More

My wife, children and I stayed at the guesthouse for over a month. We had been requested to stay at different hotel by the organization we went with. After researching it, we found GT Guesthouse to be better priced for more amenities. The guesthouse is in a secured compound and has an amazing staff that not only makes you feel... More

Our apartment at the GT guesthouse was excellent. Spacious, super clean, very comfortable beds - no complaints at all. In terms of hospitality and cordiality, Lee and her team can’t be surpassed. Every morning they served us a diversified, very tasty breakfast in our living room. Lee lent us a mobile phone for the time of our stay, gave us... More

How can I express how much we loved this place? We stayed here for a total of 6 nights during a 2 week tour of several cities in Ethiopia. Each time we came back to Lee's wonderful guesthouse, we breathed a sigh of happiness. This place in spick and span clean, and thoughtfully laid out to truly offer a feel... More

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
