It was quite a challenge finding a nice affordable place in Addis. While my boyfriend and I worked in Addis Abeba for 6 weeks this year, we tried to find a "long term" accommodation. Tuned out that everything in Addis Abeba is quite pricy (who would have thought that this would happen in one of the poorest countries on earth).... More

The rooms are clean and cozy. Staff is polite and prompt to help, specially Dawit. They even call and negotiate taxi prices so you don't pay overprice. Flatmates were also nice young people, easy to make friends with! Overall great value for money!

I stayed at Mr. Martin's Cozy Place for 7 weeks this summer. Dawit and the staff were wonderful-- they really make you feel comfortable and at home. There is daily breakfast, wifi in the common area, and room cleaning at anytime. It's central location makes it easy to navigate Addis. I look forward to returning!

We stayed at Mr Martins Cozy countless times over our two years working in Ethiopia as Peace Corps Volunteers and never had a negative experience. Rooms are simple and clean, as are the shared bathrooms, which are numerous. Great location, near popular Bole Road. But the real reason to stay here is Dawit - always accommodating, friendly, and helpful. The... More

Looking at the comments of other customers, maybe we just had bad luck with the room. But our room wasn't bad but just very basic and the bathroom was poor and got completely flooded every time we took a shower. Other than that, the breakfast was quite good and there was a living room with wifi that was quite nice.... More

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

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
