“Nigist tower review feb 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We stayed in the 5th floor in the 2bedroom apartments.The good side: spacious, bathrooms very clean and modern with hot water, comfortable beds,nice kitchen with equipment, location is central with close proximity to Intercontinental hotel with swimming pool, good food from Lime tree delivered to the room. The bad side: noisy at night with nightclub at the ground floor and noisy people in the parking lot, no wireless.overall good value for money.

Stayed here again and had a great experience. The owner was so friendly and personally helped me book travel to other cities. The front desk staff remembered me and gave me the same room I'd had before. The nightclub downstairs is noisy at night. No problems with plumbing or elevators as other guests have described. I was traveling on business and my teenage daughter was with me. We had no security concerns whatsoever. I will be there again in a few months and will definitely stay at Nigist Towers again.

This is one of the best guest houses in town and resonably priced too. Its very clean and cleaners are very honest you forget your phone, wallet you will find there. If you will be having visitors ask them to bring their ID else they will be turned back. Otherwise have a GOOD STAY...

Room Tip: Rooms ending with 04 are the best....

I had booked for 2 weeks and escaped after the 2nd night! The rooms are very spacious but generally dirty and smelly. Furniture needs some rest. Toilettes leak and badly finished. Could I sleep well at least? Not at all... major construction works are going on next door disturbing weekend and afternoon rest. Breakfast? Not available. Front desk? Useless. Took almost an hour to process a credit card transaction. Never again!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

Accomodation is nice and clean, hot water always available, standaby generator. Staff are very friendly if not for the unfriendly Owner who is always loitering around.
Has 7 floors and the lift frequently breaks down locking guests inside for hour(s).
Visitors without ID's are are not allowed to come in even if the Guests wishes to sign them in, big minus for those who want to have some fun.
Surroundings are a bit noisy and there is a night club that plays loud music on the ground floor.
Too many stray dogs around that area so beaware....

Room Tip: 3rd floor in case the lift breaks down.

The Nigist Tower apartments are a great value. It is safe and quiet (even when fully booked). There is always hot water (boiler in your room). The internet is not wireless but works reliably. Housekeeping and staff are honest and polite. Sometimes you have to ask several times for service (towels, etc.) and the reception staff only has access to supplies (toilet paper, towels, internet cables, etc.) from 8-6 so make sure to request (and get) what you need between those hours. It's right next to the Intercontinental Hotel just off Bole Road. You can see the UN Headquarters from the back of the building, just to give a bit of location orientation. At night there is a small nightclub with very, very loud music which some guests have complained about. I was able to sleep very well, however. There is a lot of construction in the area so possibly the hollow buildings act as amplifiers. There is a Sony flatscreen in every room with a few international news channels, MTV, and a few sports channels in several languages (mostly English). It is very clean and modern. The larger suites have very large and comfortable living rooms and kitchens. I've already recommended it to friends and I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this apartment for 6 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was very nice and professional. The owner/manager was one of the kindest and accomedating persons I have ever met. There is a resturant downstairs that would deliver food right to the appartment. It is centrally located in the heart of Addis and we were able to get one of the staff to baby sit our son.(She spoke fairly good english and was completely trustworthy.)
