“Fair enough ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Frankly speaking, it is fair enough, room is big, bathroom is average (they should look more after it ) ....food is o.k ...for my one night sleep over and for the 73 dollars room, I have to say it is fair enough.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Ten years ago I used to be resident in Ethiopia and based in Harar and during my visits I stayed in the Global Hotel. But to my disappointment recent december 2013 the place was run down.
The beds are old, the window of the room was broken which caused a chilly draft in the room. Early in the morning I was waked up by the noise of the cleaning staff in the corridor!

The in room safe box was a story on its own. I was fitted with an old fashioned clock lock. One has to be skilled like James Bond to unlock your safe ! It took considerable time and a lot of assistance to get to m valuables.

This hotel was chosen by my tour company. It wasn't horrible, but wasn't great either. The food was nice, but the organisation of the hotel was bad. My free airport shuttle wasn't there to meet me, they weren't answering their phone when I tried to ring them, and it took 3 hours to get to the hotel. They didn't have my booking when I finally arrived. My booked breakfast for my early departure never happened, and I had to wake the staff sleeping in the restaurant to try to get it started, but we ran out of time.

Not really walking distance to anything, so it's a taxi anywhere. The room was clean, but the toilet didn't work, though they fixed it quickly.

You probably can do better.

Stayed at the hotel at the beginning and end of our tour of Ethiopia, very good value for money with efficient staff and a very good restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Wi-fi not strong in the room but very fast in the lobby.

Stayed at the Global as the start of my Ethiopia trip with Eureka Tours. The hotel has wi-fi on all floors and the restaurant has a very good range of food. Breakfast is buffet style with a chef who will cook fresh omelettes. The staff are helpful as well.

Now the poorer points: the rooms are a little old and need a little brightening, I stayed in several rooms and this is consistent. The road noise is quite loud and the pipes are loud as well.

The location is a fair distance from the main sights.

Provide free transfers to the airport.

I stayed at the Global Hotel for four nights in May. The staff was very helpful in orienting me to the city. The room was quite nice. It had two twin sized beds, a desk, mini-fridge, tv and balcony. The bathroom had a nice supply of hot water. The internet was out a couple of times, but was very strong when we did have it! A night in the Global Hotel also includes a varied and delicious breakfast buffet in the morning with lots of juices and an omelet station. Overall, a nice stay.

I was staying at Global Hotel Addis Ababa from April 8 to 14. During my stay I found that, the Hotel room and the front office staff are excellent.

I want to recommend to others, if they come to Addis, Global Hotel can be one of their choices.

Room Tip: The room with queen size bed is perfect
