I stayed in the Villa Zed at Sheba guest house recently during a 3 days business trip and this was a perfect choice. Having lived in Addis before, I was running away from busy and noisy hotels and this was the best thing. The staff were amazing, my initial worries about not having successfully done an online booking were allayed.... More

Our stay in Sheba Guest House was very nice. It is a nice secluded safe area, the guest house has a nice veranda, a garden and in the back a lawn where you can lay down in the sun. It feels like a home, rooms are well kept and cosy. People are super sweet and very helpful in every way... More

My family has been staying at the Sheba Guest House for 5 nights in November 2012. I have to say that the area is really good and the room and garden were nice. Unfortunately that was it. They don't tell you the real price when you book. When you ask for a rate be aware that they add 10% (tax)... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sheba Guest House is the premier guest house is Addis. This gated estate's quiet and welcoming atmosphere includes four distinct Villas on an unheard of 2 acre lot in the most desirable location in the heart of Addis. Ideally located in the Bole area of Addis, only 3 short kilometers from the airport, it is walking distance to supermarkets, malls, movie theatres and popular restaurants and just a short drive to the various conference centers and major hotels in the area. The estate is part of a secure and private gated community known as the "Turkish Embassy Compound" - given the fact that several Embassies, including the Turkish Embassy are located here. What this means for our guests is unparalleled safety, smooth paved access roads, reliable power and water, and no noise pollution. Sheba Guest House is a sprawling, impeccably manicured property of nearly 2 acres - unheard of in most of Addis, let alone in the heart of the city. There are actually 3 distinct Villas and an additional suite that make up Sheba Guest House. We will work with you to find the accommodations that best fits your needs and requirements. Sheba Guest House is indeed one of the "Best kept secrets in all of Addis" - as one recent guest commented. It is also one of the best values for short term or long term accommodations. Our rates range from $40 - $90 per night. Special discounts are available for long term stays. Whether you are coming to Addis as a homecoming, for a business conference, or simply to explore this wonderful and exciting city and country, Sheba Guest House offers all the amenities of home in a warm, inviting and tranquil environment at a highly competitive price. The majority of our guests are return customers, which is the best endorsement we can hope for! Small groups or large, long stays or short; whether you choose to stay in the large mansion or in one of the more private villas, it's our job to ensure that your stay with us will be relaxing and problem free. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU SOON ! ... more   less
