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

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
