Stayed at the Nexus 3 times between June and August 2014. Quiet and clean hotel, very helpful staff. Great Vegetarian noodles. Nice location, not far from the airport. Available services include airport drop off and pick up.

The hotel has friendly and helpful staff. I loved the breakfast....the guava juice was fresh and tasty. Really nice coffee too! This hotel serves breakfast till 11am! I came in a late flight and reached the hotel at 1am. I woke up at 10 the next morning and I was glad I didn't have to make arrangements for late breakfast.... More

A bit belated, but felt I ought to go back and review! The hotel was provided free of charge, as I had a 14Hr layover in Addis Ababa - a real first for me. I am so glad I did, as this is a great little place. A few small negatives: Wi-fi was a bit hit and miss, dropping out... More

Stayed here on an overnight layover (Gold card holder). Staff was extremely helpful -- they asked me at least 100 times if my dinner was ok. Room was quiet, and comfy. Lots of shuttles (no waiting!). All is all, a good choice when in Addis!

Close to the airport and place of my work, food is ok, although there are limited options nearby other than one Ethiopian one next door. A supermarket closeby is also good. The rooms are small, but good for a good night's sleep. Has limited amenities, but they are building a new section with Swimming pool and spa facilities. Breakfast is... More

This is where Ethiopian Airlines puts up its gold and silver card transit passengers. (Normal stated price for a single room with breakfast is $90.) It is very much better than the hotels used to put up economy class passengers. It's 5 minutes from the airport and they have lots of shuttles so you don't have to wait very long... More

While the property was "very good" the staff was Excellent! I stayed at this hotel in late March-early April on a business trip, and would definitely stay again. The hotel shuttle was at the airport as promised ( I recommend you personally confirm by email with the hotel a few days before arrival), even though the flight arrived at 1AM.... More

I stayed here courtesy of Ethiopian Airlines on a long layover. The room was small but adequate, same with the bathroom. If this hotel is new, as other reviewers suggest, it is already showing signs of wear and tear. The internet was not working the night that I was there, which was a disappointment but the fault of the ISP,... More

I had a nice and clean room with a small balcony (I asked for a high floor, though, as the hotel is close to a busy street and I am sensitive to noise). The staff was very kind and I had good wi-fi (which was crucial as I had to work partly from the hotel room). The hotel has a... More
