We stayed at the Abbaba's Villa for 4 nights while attending a conference in Addis Ababa. We booked two joined rooms, which was perfect for our family. The house is unique in many ways: from eclectic decor to off-the-beaten-path location to warmth of the people who work there... Waking up in the morning, we just had a feeling that we are visiting a distant aunt in her country house - it's just this cozy, warm and welcoming feeling. The breakfast was very good (though if you stay for a while, some variety would have been nice. That said, all tenants were welcome to use the fridge and bring their favorite foods to the table) and we ate several delicious dinners at the house. We brought our 18-month old daughter with us and she enjoyed the horses and the large yard, as well as playing with other kids and exploring all the mysteries of the house. The location was a bit far from town, but the conference provided a shuttle and it was fun to see the parts of Addis on the way to Abbaba's that we wouldn't have otherwise seen- the life of the ordinary Addis residents, away from the tourist attractions.
