Spent the night in transit. Though not far from Bole International Airport, access was somewhat clumsy through a windy neighbourhood. My 4th floor twin bed room was clean enough and yielded acceptable sleep quality after a long distance flight. Dinner was quite poor close to mignight when I arrived. Breakfast was equally spartan with few choices. Internet access?__forget it, never... More

Travelling through Addis when there is an AU Meeting means hotel rooms are limited and the ones which are left sky rocket. The hotel location is OK, fairly close to the airport and some of Addis's attractions, the rooms are spacious and clean and the hot water once it eventually arrived was plentiful, but the hotel staff really need to...

I was here due to a delayed flight by Ethiopian Airlines. Overall it was an average experience with some highs and lows. The staff was mixed, some exceptionally nice while the bar lady was exceptionally rude and unhelpful. The food was limited but ok, aside from breakfast which was dire (instant coffee, stale bread, and sparse scrambled eggs). My room... More

For addis and Ethiopia standards this is a very good option for a short stay if like me you are on a layover in addis before flying out again. Shuttle picked me up and dropped me back at the airport, journey less than 10 mins. Hotel is clean and super helpful staff!

If I were to sum up this hotel in one statement it would be "made in China". A relatively new, but poorly finished hotel, very little blocking corridor noise, breakfast consists of a choice of brown scrambled eggs or some vegetables, very little in the way of facilities and internet quite poor. I like a hard bed, but not one... More

I stayed here not by choice but due to a scheduled Ethiopian Airlines layover. As is the deal from Bole Airport we are cramped into a small bus to the assigned hotel. A series of seemingly dangerous racing drive through what looks like allies we arrived at this hotel via the back entrance. The inside was nice and well layed... More

I recently spent 4 days at this hotel and overall, had a relatively good, but somewhat inconsistent experience. The hotel is very difficult to locate, but fortunately, I had arranged for the hotel to collect me from the airport. The room I was allocated was large, clean, and neat. There were however, a few issues. There was no water for... More

The hotel was fine, in my opinion a bit overpriced. The choice was determined by logistical needs, being the hotel close to the Embassy of the country I was heading to, but guess quite far from the city center, if such exists. The surrounding environment was not intriguing but not at all safe: despite the streets not paved and not... More

I missed my connecting flight to Mumbai as my earlier flight arrived late to Addis Ababa. Hence, the airline put me up in this hotel. - The approach road to this hotel is very narrow and dark. It is difficult to find this hotel unless the driver is conversant with the route or one has come here earlier. - Room... More
