We enjoyed our stay at Mr Martin, despite a few hitches getting there initially. Within minutes we felt at home, mama was doing a coffee ceremony and made us very welcome. We used Mr M as our base and stayed in 3 different rooms. Our first room was one of the newer ones called Haile Selissie which was very comfortable... More

The rooms here are very nice, and cozy, the hot water worked, there were no TVs in the room. The common area was very nice, it was the nicest backpackers I stayed at in Addis. The rooms were 600birr for a single ($30) which they didn't seem wiling to budge on, which struck me as kind of expensive for Addis,... More

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
