Nothing much to say, the good days are long gone: Overpriced, lack of custumer service, noisy (minibus concentration), outdated in every way Hard to find anything to praise the hotel for apart from the central location.

This hotel is not the best hotel in Addis Ababa. The rooms are not that clean.....too old fashion, the interiors are not good. The staff likes to ask for something from the guest. One of the receptionist tried in vain asking me to give him my mobile phone. One staff asked me for money...everything the staff is doing are taking... More
