“Not bad for stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I spent a full day here after missing an airline connection. Hotel was nice, we had a corner room with a wrap around balcony. Balcony had great views but only short wall between next rooms balcony. Hotel was not very soundproof but was well cared for and very clean. Staff was helpful. Answered several questions and arranged a driver to take us around the city. Had ok wifi. Ethiopian Airlines gave us three meals at the hotel. Everything was very spicy but was good. Evening and morning were buffets but with limited selection.

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Ther rooms are clean and kept up quite well ... if something is broken or wrong it will be fixed or corrected quickly (after your request). The resurant food is not very good. The internet service is very inconsistant - from very slow to none (for several minutes). The location is in an area where there are no resturants to walk to. There is a pharmacy across the street which is nice.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floors have "better" internet service. You don't hear the dog's...

Nice hotel, but a bit out of the way. Not far from the airport though and they run a complimentary shuttle. The rooms have 2 double beds which can be made into one. No amenities like shampoo or hairdryer. Staff very helpful.and free internet.

This is one of the nicest rooms I stayed at in Ethiopia . Good size clean very comfortable in an old fashion way. The staff was excellent and there is free internet . Breakfast good. Down side it is a bit out of the way in a safe but mostly commercial area away from tourist sites . A Few dollars and a cab ride will get you where you want to go
Good access to airport as near the Ring road and a free shuttle there as well.

Stayed here twice in October.
First time after an awful overnight from Bangkock (thanks Ethiopian Airways)
It is quiet so I slaept from 8 am to 1pm no problemA clean comfortable hotel - well located out of busy areas but walking distance to a market and nearby hills.Sauna and massage optional extras but well worth it.
Rooms are large and clean
Breakfast is really imaginative and tasty.
Can be a problem paying by card and had to go get cash but there are 3 ATMs nearby.Good local bars and cafés nearby.

Room Tip: go for a double rather than twin Not all rooms have great wifi connection 1 of my two rooms did
