I really enjoyed my stay in TDS hotel. It's not a fancy, but a bit old fashioned and decent enough hotel. Conveniently located, close to the airport and nice bars and restaurant in Bole. The room was very clean, constant hot water, good working wifi, etc. Also breakfast was really OK.

It is then difficult to rate hotels properly the way you would usually do it on tripadvisor. I will give it 2/5 but it could be 3/5 as well, it is... More

It is not expensive, so what can you expect? Lamps installed on the room wall so that bulbs won’t fit in, a night table lamp with no swicth, wireless internet in all rooms, but "it hasn’t been working for a couple of days”, a bath tub big enough to bathe children but not grown up men, some innovative wiring for...
