We made La Source Guest House our place to go to when travelling around Ethiopia. In all, we spent 6 nights there. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The staff was always very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. The restaurant food was good and again the staff very nice. Our only complaint would be barking... More

I stayed at this hotel prior to flying out of Ethiopia upon the suggestion of friends living in Addis. I booked a "small room" only to find that it was in fact two rooms with a private bathroom. Although the rooms were rather small, this was ideal for me and the luggage I had accumulated during my time away. Since... More

This place is value for money. Good service (our hot water was fixed instantly), clean and a bit more spacy than other places we encountered. They offered a airport shuttle late in the evening, although we only stayed until the night before, which was very kind. Good breakfast and easy going personnel in numbers.

I visited it in January 2014. The hotel is not in the city center, but it's good option for the price/ quality range. The rooms are rather small and the furniture is old. The breakfast was included. Free wifi. No Master card, as everywhere in Ethiopia :-(

We used it as a base in between trips to other parts of the country. Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable reception staff with good English. Good breakfast included in room price. Comfortable room, good beds, hot water, cable TV. Really good value and an excellent base within easy taxi ride or nice 1 hour walk to town. Good wifi and secure... More

They will pick you up, and drop you off, at the airport. I'm told the current rate for a taxi is 250 birr (so going both ways it's saving you about $25 USD). They also provide a breakfast, even when you wake up late. There are a few buffet items and they'll also offer to make an egg. The water... More

We stayed three times at La Source, each time enjoying the airport shuttle, great welcome and clean rooms, hot showers, good breakfasts and free wi-fi. These simple luxuries were just what we needed to set us up for forays into the tougher areas of the country - the Omo valley and the northern mountains.

Stayed here for a few nights, while in Addis. The room reminded me of a boutique hotel I one time stayed at in Paris. Really cute :-) I really enjoyed the stay here. Good value for what you pay for! Fast internet, good service, free airport shuttle, nice breakfast. Overall a very nice option, will stay here if I go... More

Clean guesthouse located in a safe area of Addis Ababa. Good hot water, wifi and cable TV. Skip breakfast as it was the worst we had in Ethiopia. If you are flying in, there is a free airport shuttle but they will be waiting outside in the carpark. They will not be waiting with a sign in the arrivals hall.... More
