Have stayed here a few times now but I won't be doing so again because there are better options nearby. The main issue is that there is no dining room, restaurant at all. Not sure how you can call a place a guest house without this. Breakfast is brought to your room, which is charming on the first day but... More

I stayed at Molla for almost 4 weeks now and I feel like this is my home in Addis. The rooms have an individual look, every room looks a bit different but they are all well furnitured and stylish. The bathroom is small, but clean. There is also a small kitchen in each room with a cooking plate, fridge and... More

We stayed here for two months and enjoyed it very much. Clean, good service, efficient reception, great location next to the airport and lots of shopping / restaurants. Only minor problem is that it can be noisy depending on the room, and the breakfast is not great. But you have German Bakery right below which is the best cafe in... More

The lovely thing in Addis is you can choose between different places to stay. From 5 stars hotel 220US/d and down to a guest house with 20 US/d. just you had to make the right move and select why you need to stay there and how you could get in and out at any convenient time. MOLLA is facing the... More

Seriously, I checked the reviews and I checked the site and everything seemed lovely! I was very happy with our choice. I had asked about a king size bed and I was told I would be given one, and that the room was spacious. Neither I believe was true. Forget about the bed - our room was small, tired (bathroom... More

Great value for money; wonderful people! One of the best deals in Addis! The staff are attentive and polite. The food is very good and fresh. Breakfast is especially good. The rooms are clean and kept that way. The location is convenient though but not quiet. Taxis pass by all day. It is within walking distance of the vibrant Chechnya... More

Especially for long stays I can recommend Molla Hotel, because every apartment is equipped with a small kitchen, balcony, bathroom with warm shower, wireless internet and breakfast. The interior is lovely and spotless. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for 5 nights in the 2 bedroom suite and couldn't be more impressed. The staff was very helpful and the accomodations were tops. I'm sure there aren't many other places in Addis where you'll have a flat screen tv in your room. The furnishings were very modern and comfortable. There's a pizza place right next door if... More

We arrived in Addis Ababa at 4 am and were advised to wait at the airport till 6 am when it would be daylight and the taxis would start operating.  The visa process was easy and efficient.  The ATM did not dispense any cash but we were able to change some money.  There is a simple coffee shop which was open and...

I have stayed in Molla Guest House on several occassions and I would heartily recommend this family run property. It is more of a boutique hotel than a guest house and the hotel is beautifully maintained and clean with wooden floors and rugs. It is in a great location just under 1km from the Medhan-e-alam church with banks, shops and... More
