When I began looking for hotel options in Addis, I didn't find many appealing options and decided to book at the Ag Palace for it's value, location, and good reviews. I was not disappointed! The hotel is simple but clean, and although the road is on is rough and unpaved, its centrally located and just a short drive away from... More

At arrival staff had no idea about our reservation: it took 20 minutes for them to finally find it in their email (I had booked online and sent an email to ask for confirmation the day before departure, and still...). In general it is clean, but the rooms are very small and old-fashioned, and most importantly are not worth the... More

Ag Palace is truly a hidden gem of a hotel. It is not easy to find and most of the taxi drivers don't seem to know where it is, but if you are looking for a friendly, clean, modern,safe, secure hotel then seek it out. We took this recommendation from Tripadvisor originally and were delighted with the hotel which is... More

It is alfway between city centre and airport. We stayed one night after a 12 hour bus ride and before our flight home so we had an easy transfer to the airport. In a largely residential area it was quiet at night and good value for an international standard hotel in Addis. It was the only hotel we found in... More

We turned onto a gravel road, at night, with the typical razor wire on top of fences, corrugated sheet metal etc & I thought, "what kind of place are they taking me to this time?" But it truly was a hidden gem. There were guards so I felt completely safe. The rooms were small by American standards, but this was... More

My husband and I stayed at Ag for three nights. It was a pleasant experience. The hotel is clean and well kept with friendly staff. The roads around the hotel are under construction (this is unavoidable in a lot of the city as they are tearing up the roads to make way for the new rail system), however, since we... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ag Palace at the end of our trip to Ethiopia. It was a good experience. The hotel is well run and the rooms are comfortable. Everything works well. We were made very welcome. The hotel is on the east side of the city, and away from the main shopping area and attractions. This... More

Stayed there just for the day between two flights; We could book everything by email and the manager was very friendly. She arranged us a taxi for the whole day for a very fair price. You should go when you have a transit in Bole airport!!!

The hotel is 4-5 kilometres from the city centre, but still quite accessible (despite the major road works nearby). The hotel is good value for money, and very comfortable. The staff were lovely - nothing was too much trouble - and the manager Genet could not have been more helpful.

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel, and found it to be very lovely. We stayed here for 7 nights . With the whole of Addis dug up; I have to say the taxi driver had a hard time finding it but once we rang the hotel ( we have seen previous reviews) it was easily sorted. The rooms... More
