I had a nice peaceful stay at Z-Guesthouse. I stayed in the upper apartment and it was nice to have a living room to relax in the mornings and evenings with the sun streaming in. The decor is clean and comfortable. The style is a little dated, but it feels like you are staying at a comfortable family holiday house,... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Z guest house. The apartment was spotless clean, the fridge was stocked with beer and soda as well as a complimentary bottle of water for each of us. Delicious breakfast was served in the apartment and included juice, eggs, bread and jam with tea and coffee. We stayed for 2 nights and found... More

We stayed three nights at the Z Guest House, two nights when we first got to Addis and one night just before we left. It's a lovely, family-run establishment. We were met promptly at the airport both times through. The guesthouse is in the city but in a very quiet neighborhood. We did try another hotel on our third night,... More

I stayed at Z Guest House for 3 days in their single suite. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The guest house is situated close to the National Museum and the lion park. The room was always kept clean. The breakfast served in the morning was a simple continental breakfast, but satisfactory. The Armenian restaurant close to the guest... More

I stayed three weeks at the Z Guest House. I was conducting research at the National Museum and wanted to be somewhere within walking distance. I had a wonderful experience and will absolutely book again. I stayed in all three types of rooms (apt, en suite, and shared bathroom) and each one has access to wi-fi internet, satellite tv, and...

Some Americans I met at the airport introduced me to the Z Guest House in Addis Ababa and I thanked them for it. My old single room seemed a little dark at first but the longer I stayed the more I appreciated the amenities, the helpful staff, its peace and quiet and great location. I would gladly spend another week... More

We've stayed twice at Z Guest House. Once November 2010 for a week and again June 2014 on and off for 2 weeks. When selecting a place to stay for our trip back to Ethiopia, our kids enthusiastically remembered and requested Z because of the spacious apartment suites and lovely garden area that made for a relaxing home. We were... More

I found this guest house to be a nice change from the usual hotel environments prevailing in Addis Ababa these days. The rooms, especially the suites, are spacious and clean and the services (breakfast, room cleaning) are excellent. There are several good restaurants (Armenian Restaurant, Tourist Hotel at Arat Kilo and a wi-fi restaurant), a major bank, and the lion... More

I spent a week at Z with my mother and daughter. The place is a little oasis in the middle of crazy Addis Ababa. Clean, friendly, well kept. The owners are friendly and helpful in every possible way - we felt very much at home at Z and will definitely come back. The area is nice and safe, too. Just... More
