Designed by an award winning architect, from the outside the building is an unusual design, the exterior does not prepare you for what awaits you internally. The spacious, tastefully decorated reception is only a taste of what is to come. The rooms are spacious, the furniture tasteful and functional, comfortable, spacious beds with a well designed en-suite. We stayed on... More

We stayed at Arequ for 3 weeks with our young baby. We've stayed at many guesthouses and hotels in Addis. Most are gaudy, with lots of cheap Chinese furniture, and poorly-finished (loose fixtures, bad plumbing, sockets falling out, etc). Not Arequ. It was spacious, well-appointed and tastefully decorated. In fact, the whole guesthouse is gorgeous. We had the first room,... More

Very warm and friendly. Convenient to the airport, with free pick-up. It's not so convenient to some of the main attractions in Addis, but no hotel is for most of them. The city is very spread out, and you'll have to get around by taxi from whatever hotel you choose. Arequ is quiet, clean, and all the facilities work (shower,... More

I instantly felt at peace when I walked thru the door at Arequ after traveling quite a bit across Ethiopia. It would be easy to say this is not a guest house but a boutique hotel with fantastic service. Although one is quick to tell a lot of thought has gone into designing and building this luxurious place, I later... More

The Arequ is a beautiful place to stay in Addis Ababa. The minute you walk in the door you are greeted with warmth and friendship, offered tea and cake and treated like family. The entire place is gorgeous, warm and creative. The attention to details through out is amazing. I have stayed there many times and bring guests yearly from... More

Arequ Guest House made our stay in Addis perfect. We are a family of five and loved the beautiful interior, family history, clean and comfortable rooms, fantastic breakfasts. We were met at the Airport, given so much help and advice. Great restaurants and music nearby. Very good value.Definitely coming back!

I stayed at the Arequ Guest House in Addis and my family loved it. The modern design and amenities are great. Spacious, clean rooms. Family friendly. The continental breakfast was enjoyable and service is always with a smile. They are happy to help with anything and I felt the Arequ Guest House was a gem within the city. I would... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during our whirlwind trip of Ethiopia. The guest house was clean, beautifully furnished and the staff were tremendously helpful with their travel advice. We enjoyed breakfast and Ethiopian coffee each morning! Highly recommended when in Addis Ababa!

My wife and 2 year-old daughter and I stayed at AREQU for 5 weeks. The staff were just wonderful. Guest house was very clean and comfortable. Unique interior and architecture. You would struggle to find better in Addis. Highly recommended.
