“Great stayover for business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I stayed at the hotel in December 2012 and found the hotel to be perfect as a base for business. Rooms were clean and well appointed - however noted the absence of aircon or a celing fan in my room. Fortunately the weather was cool and there was a sliding door onto a balcony, however in an upmarket establishment like this I'd expect aircon in the rooms. Gym and pooldeck were both excellent, pool is heated. Food equally good. I'd definately recommend it as a good business hotel.

Room Tip: Go for higher floor to avoid traffic noise.

This hotel offers free wifi in the lobby, service is okay. The rooms are slightly cramped and the bathrooms score a 5 out of 10 for me. they are clean enough but questionable. By the way - the A/C's don't work in most hotels and many hotels in Addis do not have A/C's.

The location is relatively close to the Bole Airport

I stayed here when I was upgraded on stopover between Pointe-Noire and Jo'burg. This is a reasonable hotel although in need of some renovation and service could be improved as some light difficulties in the restaurants. The room and food were reasonable and so as long as you're not expecting usual Intercontinental standards, you will have a pleasant stay.

my expectations we not high but staff was nice and helpful. The pool on the top floor was really nice. Our room though did smell heavy of bug spray which wasn't so pleasant but location was pretty central, good breakfast and free shuttle to airport. Go though with your own plan, the concierge wasn't too helpful regarding things to do.

Room Tip: get a room not overlooking the construction site

This is quite a nice place. I was on business and the location was great for me since it is near to the UN and other similar offices. The lobby area is well done with lots of comfortable seating. The room was fine for the most part although the water pressure was a bit iffy and the plumbing needed upgrading. The Internet wasn't so great and my iPad couldn't connect.. They deliver a red rose to the room every evening, which was a nice touch. The hotel is in the midst of a commercial area so you have the option of eating out and doing some shopping without having to get into a taxi.

I stayed at the hotel for a total of 10 nights in November 2012.

The rooms are really spacious and have a safe, large comfy bed, seating area and balcony (overlooking a building site but a balcony non-the-less). What I found strange is that none of the rooms have AC. My room in November was way too hot for me and whilst I was told I could have a fan this was very noisy as was the street outside so opening the balcony window was never much help.

The food isn't brilliant and whilst there is a pool it was so hot that it was hard to do lengths in.

Saying all this there is nothing 'wrong' as such with this hotel it just has quirks that mean you could most likely find better. The staff are very helpful and the rooms were very clean.

The hotel staff was extremely friendly at check-in and out, at the bar and the restaurant.
Standard of finishing works in room and bathroom is rather poor. I stayed twice for one night and got an upgrade to a junior suite, which provided only more space.
Food in the restaurant is good, nothing very fancy at acceptable prices for foreigners (but high for Ethiopia).
No Wi-Fi available but connection with cable worked properly
Transfer to and from airport well organized
