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

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
