Addis doesn't offer much in the way of hostels/backpackers which is a shame as the city is great fun! This place is far from the best place I have stayed in while travelling through Africa, but it does the job if all you need is a clean, comfortable, conveniently located place for a night or two - apart from the...

Best you'll get in Addis for the price. Has all the basics, extremely relaxed environment, pay whenever, family owned and run by Mr. Martin, nice guy, they can pick you up (by taxi) from the airport. Is right near the mike layland strip, bus station is a bit far if you want to get around the country but the staff... More

Unless our iPhone had been stolen from the room, which was locked, while we went out for only 3 hours to have dinner, it would have been a perfect place to stay in Addis. But this incident really ruined our stay there. Even though only one employee was around in the guest house during the time we were out, the... More

I stayed at Mr. Martin's right away after arriving to Addis early in the morning. There were plenty of other travelers staying at the hotel, so make sure that you send an email or book in advance if you want to stay here. The thing that I was most happy about was storing my luggage there for three weeks while... More

Really enjoyed our time here - the dining room and living room provide a community feel, but also with the privacy of your own room. The staff was very helpful and they provide you with a small breakfast in the morning.

My husband and I stayed here when we first arrived in Ethiopia and again before we left. It would be safe to say it was the cleanest place we stayed at in Ethiopia – which is saying quite something as most places we stayed at during our 7 weeks were very clean. We actually preferred the rooms in the main... More

Great place to start and end your journey in Ethiopia. The common room and the dining area is an excellent place to meet other travelers. Davit is an excellent source of information and is very generous with his time. The rooms, especially in the main building, are spacious and comfortable.

Mr Martin's Cozy Place is an excellent base in Addis. Clean rooms and bathroom, friendly staff, free wifi, free breakfast, friendly helpful staff and a great place to meet other tourists in a quiet environment. One of the best places we have stayed in our 6 months in Africa. Dawit, the owner, even gave us a free lift to the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and found it a great base for exploring Addis, and the living area makes it conducive for meeting people. Close to Bole International Airport, and the area is generally fine for walking around at night. Rooms were clean, there was good wifi in the common areas, there was consistent hot water with adequate pressure,... More

This is a very friendly and welcoming budget place to stay in Addis. It is close to the airport, and they will collect you for a cheaper rate than the taxis. Dawit and Mahlet (the proprietors) and their staff (Hana) are very helpful and informative in assisting guests to sort out anything that is needed. It is true that Addis... More
