As a group of 11 people, we found Orange Lion Guesthouse the perfect place for us! The staff was so accommodating. They were flexible with room arrangements, provided the most delicious breakfast, and made us a home-cooked meal for dinner. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable... even walking with our group to the nearest restaurant... More

Very helpful with pickup and dropoff (Free of charge). Polite staff, wifi worked in reception area only, good quality of bathroom, quiet and convenient if you don't want to be close to the Centre. Good breakfast. I stayed 3 nights and I got the master bedroom with ensuite and big balcony.

If you need to stay within the city limits of Addis Ababa then do not choose this hotel, it is at least a 10-15 minute drive northeast out of the city and the taxis charge at the minimum $15-$20 one way, and by the way they don't offer AC. I didn't get a chance to receive a free transfer ride... More

I stayed for 3 nights and on the 2nd afternoon, the day before I was leaving, I came downstairs to use Skype and one of the staff out of nowhere demanded i bring down my passport that instant. I went back... More

A lovely big house, very clean room with bathroom, friendly staff. A quiet and safe place to stay. They let me use their computer for checking in my flight. Good breakfast and they prepare food too if you order in advance. Warmly recommended!
