I stayed at Mr. Martin's for 7 weeks during the summer of 2014. It was a wonderful time. I'm a college student doing academic research, and Mr. Martin's was versatile enough for me to enjoy weekend evening activities, and do really strong research. Dawit and Hannah are terrific managers of the place. I spent a lot of time with Dawit... More

Hot showers, wifi, friendly staff, safe and clean rooms, great location, comfortable beds. What more could you ask for? I stayed at Mr. Martin's for 6 weeks and couldn't imagine living anywhere else in Addis. Dawit and Hannah are so welcoming and accommodating. We even traveled for a week and were allowed to store our bags until we returned. I... More

I have been staying at MM's Cozy Place for the last two days, and I have had an excellent experience. The owner Dawit is extremely nice and helpful, waiting for me at the airport for over two hours while I went through customs and helping me settle into Addis Ababa. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with ample storage closets... More

Great place to stay in Addis. Clean rooms, great staff. They have wifi, which is a priority for me (it's as fast as the government-run service allows... I went to the Sheraton looking for faster wifi, and it cost me $5 for an hour and was just as fast as MM's Cozy Guesthouse). The location is good -- not too... More

Great host to me during my stay in Addis Ababa. Management was able to provide a reliable airport drop off for me at 4am. Breakfast was always prepared and provided a great opportunity to meet other travelers. Wifi is available at Atlas Hotel just across the street and the hostel is in a safe location that all taxi drivers around... More

I had a great stay at Mr. Martin's. The people were very friendly and helpful, and my room was very nice. I'd definitely recommend that anyone stay here. The only thing is that there was a mistake with my booking, which is probably a result of the relocation. It's understandable, but please make sure you confirm your booking!

It's not the cheapest hostel around but it's the best quality. It's very clean and has a nice family feel. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They tried their best to answer all our questions (we had a lot) about shopping, transport, food etc. Thank you for all your help.

I had a great time at Mr Martin's Cozy Place. It was very clean, nice breakfast, fast and safe airport transfer. The hostel is located in Bole near the Atlas Hotel - this is a nice area, quiet with cleaner air and has a number of coffee shops and little restaurants. The downside to the area is that you need...

I recently stayed on two occasions at the "new" Mr Martins (very close to the "old" one that closed when I arrived in Addis) during a one month trip through Ethiopia. Mr Martins is a great place to stay in Addis with well appointed and clean rooms, a good breakfast, the right location (close to Bole Road, Incognito cafe for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You have found Mr. Martins Cozy Place, one of the top rated and the most recommend budget accommodations in Addis Ababa. It is not a coincidence that we are preferred by travelers from around the world,as we are located only 3.2km from Bole International Airport and our neighborhood is the most happening in Addis in terms of the selection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shopping centers,art galleries, banks/ATMs, internet cafes, gyms and cinemas. We are also steps away from easy transport routes to most parts of the city.Mr. Martins Cozy Place is situated inside a quiet, private compound with a two story main building. We have a range of seventeen rooms according to your needs. Our rooms are decorated in simple but tasteful manner and are always clean. Also there is a big communal kitchen for guests to make themselves a healthy meal. To relax, the premises feature a lush garden area and a rooftop terrace with a splendid view in addition to various amenities in order to make your stay hassle free. Our experience in budget accommodations since 2005 combined with our friendly staff allows us to make your stay in Addis enjoyable and memorable. We love what we do, we love meeting new people and most of all we love building experience to better our services. ... more   less
