I guess it is one of the least pricy places in Addis Ababa that we could find, but the experience was not great. There is nothing to say about the room and bathroom, but overall communication was not its best. We were given a 3 bed room for 2 of us, so I believe it is more expensive than a... More

Wow, everyone else is giving this place a really harsh review, but I think it's pretty good. We stayed in 2 other places in Addis and Baro definitely has the best location, good wifi (in the room too! that's crazy for Ethiopia), standard rooms and a very affordable price, especially for Addis. There was hot water at some times of... More

I don't know who she is but she always stay in the hotel with ignored attitude. And try to keep talking (about tour thing or something like that) so too Noisy; even in the room, even in night & dawn. I don't know why she acted too rude but, because of that our conception about the hotel was changed. Cleaning... More

I was often in this place just to have a coffee and enjoy the quietness of the place, but really one day the stuff there was so disgusting. I have been there with my friend (Ethiopian) and they throw him out because they thought he wants to make business there. They did it in such a way I cannot accept... More

Good location, cheap price, friendly people (not all of the staff speaks english, but a lot of people staying there is people trying to help the society living there on an on and off permanent basis so there will always be a lot of very friendly and helpful people). Not clean, but will do for a cheap place, good vibe... More

I arrived late at night to find out that my room had been given to someone else. It had taken time to exit the airport and though I had called just hours before and said I am coming there was no room. They had given it to someone else. They said I could stay out in the garden. It was... More

This is a decent hotel if you've just arrived in Addis on a shoestring in a very lively location in the Piazza area of town. The staff are very friendly and there's a nice terrace area which is a good place to chat to other travellers. Staff are also very good at helping you get orientated and giving directions, and...

I stayed here twice coming in and out of Addis. There are a few nice rooms to your left if you are facing reception, with windows looking into the courtyard. The rest are pretty dark and not nice. If you're already used to budget accomodations in Ethiopia, it's fine. There was water (not always the case in Ethiopia) and hot... More
