On my way to Nairobi via Addis Ababa, my plane had to be grounded in Addis Ababa due to technical issues caused by some birds in the air. I was forced to overnight in Addis Ababa and continue the next day. The airline, taking full responsibility, placed me in Nexus Hotel near the airport. I had never been into Addis... More

By Addis standards a reasonable mid range hotel. My room was on a 'non smoking floor' (3rd) but had a distinct smell of smoke when I entered. Wifi is very flakey and at its best nothing like 'high speed', but internet in Ethiopia is always difficult. Mattress was incredibly squishy and I left with serious back pain. Breakfast was basic...

I stayed at the Nexus for a small conference in April. The rooms were nice, although the first was just too smokey to stay in. The food was very nice and the service well above average for Addis. Something that stands out is that they have a very good backup generator that came on to keep the show running when... More

My first trip to Addis so I dont have any comparators but compared to similar level hotels I have stayed at elsewhere in Africa the Nexus is pretty good. The rooms are clean and the fittings in good condition (I am guessing it is quite new). I didnt experience the wifi problems that other reviewers reported. The restaurant has a... More

Intermitent wifi, marshmallow matresses, noisy music venue next door, lack of a fitness centre and distance to restaurants will make your business trip miserable. Sky bar was pleasant enough if you could turn a deaf ear to expletive riddled American rap blaring out.

Just check-in and get free access to the Internet any time you want to get connected, either business or personal.' That is not true at all, during the... More

I have stayed in the hotel for one night. It was clean and for ethiopian standards above average (there was even shampoo in the room). I can not say anything about the price, since I was there with a tourist group.
