It's a decent value for the cheap price, but if you are coming from outside of Ethiopia, you will be shocked at the standard - especially compared to anywhere in Asia or even many other African countries. It's probably worth spending a bit more on a nicer place to acclimate for your first day or two. The toilet seat was... More

I stayed there for over a month. If there was a problem was because of the Train Construction around Piazza. Service was excellent and prices were great. Good security, clean rooms, good food and great service and that's all I needed. Place is in Piazza, and Piazza has everything one needs. Also I made a lot of friends from all... More

We stayed here almost a week. The room was clean enough (although you could spot the occasional bug, but I guess that's at most places). The room was good enough for a budget traveler in the Piazza area of Addis, if you ask me. We paid 280 BIRR per night for the two of us for a room with one... More

The rooms are very dark, ugly and dilapidated. Once in the room u will feel blue. Staff are not so welcoming and friendly.Noisy at night because of the bar in front of it. It is true that it is cheap. But with some 100~150 more birr, you can find clean, bright and decent alternatives nearby.

Great location as near to good restaurants and heart of addis, could be slightly noisy at night but overall nice place to stay, friendly staff and great value at 200-350 birr per night. The communal eating area is lovely place to relax with free WiFi and basic food menu.

200-250 birr for a night. They have hot showers, wi-fi, pretty clean. The food is expensive, u can find a good meal for the same price at the 'Corner cafe' up the street, they have very good food!! The only thing u must have in mind is that the area and streets near by get loud and noisy at night,... More

One of the cheapest options in Piazza, 200 Birr for a single. I stayed three nights and changed each night because the rooms were dingy, thoughI fancy myself a low maintenance traveler. The first night the big issue was a pointy metal spring scratching my back through the mattress. The second night was mold prevalent enough to give me a... More

This seemingly "little" hotel really has lots of rooms all of various sizes. My one bedroom and bath had one large bed with a bulky mattress and a smaller twin sized bed with a similar mattress. I thought the rent was $10/day; but I was charged $17/day. It was dusted and mopped each day. The only real problem was the... More

Half the price of Taitu and basic, but no complaints. Felt secure - much harder for people to enter the grounds unnoticed than Taitu. Nice courtyard. Shower had reliable hot water though bathroom cramped. Staff friendly.
