Stayed in Sidama Lodge in periods of up to 4 weeks throughout 2013 - staff very pleasant, Room 403 brilliant (biggest suite on top floor with lovely balcony), Room 304 pretty good (2 roomed suite at back) and room 201 perfectly adequate for one (Studio). Unfortunately for me, the Lodge has been fully booked by long termers this year, so... More

I came to Addis looking for a clean, inexpensive hotel which is suitable for the business traveler.

I particularly liked the rooms,... More

After being unable to get a room at Sidama Lodge, I was offered a room in the new Sidama inn, just a fifteen minutes walk from Sidama Lodge. Sidama Inn is simply great, with all the positive characteristics of Sidama Lodge and a lovely restaurant run by real professionals. I understand Sidama Inn has just opened a few weeks ago... More

I had the opportunity to stay in one of their topfloor, 2 bedroom apartments for a month and it was fantastic. The apartment was very cosy. Nice furniture. Kitchen was equipped with most things you will need. There was both a fridge and a freezer. Every morning they came up with your pre-ordered breakfast on a tray (included in room... More

The first thing you notice when entering the lobby it climbing up the stairs to see a room is the abundance of original art on the walls.it lends the hotel an ambience of sophistication and also relaxation that is uncommon. As always its a must to compare rooms; I stayed in three different rooms over the period of a week... More

I had a quick stop over in Addis for two days and the Sidama Lodge was recommended to me by s friend who had stayed there previously. It is close to the airport yet also close to all the main business areas of the city. I could not fault the place. Staff are incredible, always ready to help and those... More

The location is very convenient as it is not far from the airport and the city. The staff are very accommodating. We went there as family and enjoyed every moment of our stay. The rooms are very spacious. The staff are always available to meet your needs.

Myself and my husband went to Ethiopia to adopt our son, Daniel As one can imagine this was a very emotional experience. We were nervious, excited and at times felt vulnerable. We had seen a reference on Trip Advisor by other adoptive parents staying at the Sidama Lodge and decided to book ourselves in. I should say that the adoption... More

Sidama Lodge has a great location which is just off the Bole Road on the main road from the airport. The staff are excellent and the rooms are very large. It is ideal for a consultant like myself with plenty of working space and a quite environment yet close to offices and embassies in the city.

We went with my two daughters for our first visit to Ethiopia. It's such a beautiful country with so much to offer and wonderful people. We stayed at sidama lodge for five nights and the whole experience was fantastic. The staff were welcoming,kind and the actual hotel was so clean, five star standards. Attention to detail was second to none.
