Due to a canceled flight Ethiopian sent me to this hotel. I only got to stay here for twelve hours, but I got to try the dinner, the bar, the backyard and the breakfast. All of very good standard. Friendly staff and maybe the biggest bed I have ever slept in. I will recommend everybody to stay here if in... More

Bad hôtel With no wifi service. Lots of smoke smell in the room: strange for a non smoking room. No shuttle bus and they were asking 20€ for a one-way... Don't go unless forced to. The only plus is that it is close to the airport.

I stayed in this hotel a couple of times recently. Its really good value for money. The hotel is busy as it is used by airlines when flights get cancelled or delayed, so not always happy visitors, yet the reception staff were always very helpful and friendly. Hotel food is basic, but eating out is not expensive, there is a... More

We were put up in this hotel by Ethiopian Airlines after missing our connection to Harare. I cannot complain since the stay was free. The airline arranged everything. A shuttle brought us from the airport and back the next day. The driver was very nice. The hotel included buffet meals for breakfast, lunch and supper, which I thought were great... More

The hotel is close to the airport which is a plus but the area is a bit weird. The personnel was very friendly. WI-FI connection available and pretty fast for an African country. Had a problem with the Shower, couldn't get hot water on that cold morning to shower and trust me, Addis Ababa is quite cold in December. Had... More

You can go in 15 minutes to an airport by bus of a hotel. However, since the the airport is bery crowded, you have to get... More

Do not let Ethiopian Airlines make you feel compelled. Ask for another choice and avoid the Empire Addis. I was forced to overnight in Addis having missed a connection between Emirates and Ethiopian Airlines. After a less than helpful discussion with a lady at the Ethiopian Airlines counter, an overnight stay was recommended by Ethiopian at the Empire Addis for... More

Stayed 1 day at the Empire Addis during 14 hour layover on Ethiopian Airlines (airline gives free hotel and shuttle if your transit is between 8 and 24 hours). Shuttle from airport to hotel took only 5 minutes or so. Hotel is clean and comfortable for a quick nap. Bathroom is very basic. Our shower door was loose. Free meals... More
