This was my second trip to Addis and my first time to stay at the Nexus. The entire staff, from waitstaff to housekeeping, to management was top notch. Every member of their staff seemed to know their job, seemed willilng to do their job and were certainly willing to go above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. My guest... More

I spent my first night in Ethiopia here. It was a rocky start to my trip. Internet wasn't working. They couldn't place an international call for me. Front desk didn't speak English too well. So I was feeling a bit helpless in communicating with the outside world. However, the bed was okay. Coffee was strong. And the shower was excellent.... More

The place was great and beautiful, except for the fact that there was a X-ray huge scanner at the entrance of the hotel to scan your luggage and self as you enter the hotel. Very quite, excellent service and the staff were welcoming. It was also very clean, modern and of international standards. Will definitely recommend it and use it... More

I tried to take a room at Nexus Hotel late November 2012. A nice driver from Nexus picked up me at Addis airport and took me to the hotel. At the entrance there is an x- ray inspection machine for luggage. In airports and places where I am not able to decide if I accept it or not, it is... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Nexus for 3 nights in Sept. 2012. The room was a bit smelly but clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were excellent and the service really good. Overall very enjoyable.

They are located a bit at the far end of the city and it becomes difficult for u travel especially if you are new. Breakfast and lunch were nice with lots of varieties but they are not really different in tastes although the food tastes good. Service was good and the staff are nice and very friendly. The only thing... More

I'm staying here three nights on business, and couldn't be happier with the hotel. I like it better than the Addis Hilton. This boutique hotel is new, clean and the service has been wonderful. The hotel is about a mile or two from the airport--very convenient. The hotel shuttle was there to pick us up when we arrived at Bole,... More

We had a night in the Nexus Hotel, courtesy of Ethiopian Airlines, when a delayed inbound flight meant that we missed our flight to Gonder. The hotel is pretty modern and pretty forgettable. Everything is fine - the lobby area is nice, the rooms are large enough and clean (but with maybe the smallest TVs in the world) and the... More

After the government seized a pre-booked room in a different hotel due to an impromptu African Union meeting, Nexus came to the rescue. The general manager, Mr Samso, personally picked us up and made sure our stay went smoothly. The rooms are clean, luxurious, and the staff is very friendly. The restaurant chef personally greets their customers on occasion. Perhaps... More
