We stayed at Z Guest House for 18 days and we felt we were in our own home. We booked at this guest house for the very family oriented feeling that other people described here at Trip Advisor and other sites especially from couples and families with longer stay. And we found our experience to be overwhelmingly attentive to all... More

We have stayed here on numerous occasions, always booking well- ahead to make sure we get the right combination of rooms as we sometimes come as more than one couple at at time. We have always found the owner helpful and friendly. Meeting us at the airport is a definite bonus. The rooms in the suite are spacious and clean... More

A lovely, comfortable, friendly guest-house. This was my second stay in Addis and I chose the guest-house as it was closer to work. Both the owners and the girls who worked there were really friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable with sprung mattress, TV and fridge. The en-suite was fine with a good hot shower. There's a small breakfast... More

Being a first timer in Ethiopia without knowing anybody is really a very stressful situation! The owner himself meet me at the airport waited patiently despite of the strong winds and rains. The couple, Tadese and Saudia are very accommodating. They are very much concern for your safety. They treated me as their family ( that's what impressed me most)!... More

We will recommend Z guest house. A very nice and friendly place. We felt safe and taking care of the 10 nights we were staying there. Only one warning - when we arrived it took almost 3 hour to get our visa and check out from Bole Airport. Print out Z guest house`s tlf. no and call them if it... More

To begin with - There are hotels and there are Guest houses. If you stay here while keeping a hotel in mind, you will be disappointed. If you stay here like a house guest, you will be relaxed and enjoy your stay here. My flight was late and still the owner waited for me at the airport for over an... More

The Z Guest House is one of those family run guest houses which make you feel comfortable and welcome; a great base to explore from and return to, We slept in one of the smaller cabins at the back which are perfect for single or doubles staying for shorter periods. The guesthouse has howver also bigger appartments with full emmenities.... More

Great place to start your visit to Ethiopia to acclimatise.... and wonderful place to come back at the end to catch your breath. Peaceful setting; attentive staff; clean rooms; reasonable prices; internet and phone; laundry. Most importantly, Abba and staff take a personal interest in their guests, offer a genuine welcome on arrival and can provide local info.
