Stayed here for 3 nights. During low season. Got put into a room with ensuite and double bed. Very nice. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and willing to help. The breakfast changes daily, and the cook makes some of the best pancakes I've ever tried. Airport transfer is 100 Birr for both pickup and drop off. The hot water... More

Cally and the guys at Jrome were great and really made us feel at home. It was lovely to know there was someone to turn to at whatever time of the day if we had any questions. The guys picked us up and dropped us off at the airport as well even though we had an early departing flight. It... More

Teddy is a wonderful host for your stay in Addis and goes out of his way to make you feel at home. Situated near the airport (taxi from the airport should cost 70-80 Birr), this guest house is a wonderful location for short stopovers in Addis or early morning flights. Reaching the Piazza is easy and within a 30-minute ride... More

Great location for the airport, and for the centre and other locations the owner operates an in-house taxi service which is very helpful. For international flights transport to the airport is also free! (Taxis from the airport will vastly overcharge, as others have already mentioned.) Rooms are comfortable, very clean, and have a homey feel to them. The surrounding area... More

I booked this on recommndation on trip advisor. Is a well run guest house on the outskirts of Addis. The family that run it are helpful friendly bunch, including lending me a sim card for my 2 weeks in Ethiopia. It is quite a way into town (150 birr in a taxi) although can navigate the mini taxis for a... More

Feeling like at home, clean rooms. Great value for money. Great hospitality from Kali and Jery, both beautiful (model looking :-)), helpful and cheerful. Good free WiFi and breakfast. Close to the airport. A little bit isolated form the town center and the "action", but you can move easily with taxi and minibuses. A island of peace in bustle Addis... More

Homey, pleasant and clean rooms. Great value for money. Safe and cozy! Amazing hospitality - Teddy provided all the information on how and what to do in the city with a big smile! Free WiFi... Very easy access from airport (5 minutes away) and to city center (by taxi or shared minibus). Definitely THE place to stay in Addis Ababa.... More

Very comfortable and pocket friendly place and the owners are super friendly and extremely helpful :). Stayed at the place for five nights and I was made to feel welcome and at home the whole time. The rooms are nice and comfortable, and very clean. Breakfast is good and very pleasantly served. I would definitely not mind going back there!

Teddy, the proprietor, is very service oriented, which is extremely pleasant, going out of his way to help us out. The guesthouse and rooms are nice, though the location, close to the airport, is either very convenient or not ideal, being a while away from Addis' sites.
