Stayed there with my wife and daughter from 21st to 22nd February. My wife and daughter ahd been there for two weeks prior. They collect you in a brand new bus from the airport and drop you back off there on departure at no extra cost. From the gateman to the front desk, the staff are so welcoming and fantasic with kids. The owner and his daughter are wonderful people and really took to our daughter and made a huge fuss of her.The buffet breakfast is varied and good quality. The rooms are spacious and there is plenty of hot water, which is sometimes a probem in Addis hotels.
We have already made plans to stay there again for our next visit next month.

I recently visited Ethiopia, and we decided we didn't want to spend $200 a night for a fancy hotel. We stayed at the Addis Regency for half that. It's small and personal, excellent service, great wifi, and whatever else you'd want. Good food in the restaurant downstairs. The owner bought us a drink and sat with us! When my fellow traveler didn't like her bed, they brought another one in! This felt like a great option if you're not into high priced luxury hotels - still comfortable, convenient, and more personal.

We stayed here on the first night and the last night of our trip to Eithiopia. We picked this hotel based on reviews we read from tripadvisor, and we were quite happy with our stay here. The rooms were clean with comfortable bed and clean sheets. The bathroom is pretty big. The nice and hot shower was the best part! Food at the restaurant was good. There is free wifi in the room and in the restaurant and lobby. They also ran a shuttle to the airport.

We chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. While it may not be in the heart of the Piassa or near the main tourist activities, it wins out by the service and value it provides travelers. Most room rates include: round trip airport transfers, wifi (many routers in the hallway outside your room, and fast connection speed), and buffet breakfast which has an okay mix of continental and Ethiopian traditional foods. While the food was nothing special, it was a welcome way to begin the day.

The owner built this hotel on his father's land. It is one of the few hotels in this area, though a relatively easy walk to get you closer to things. I would definitely not describe this hotel's location as being in a very central location, but after a day or two of walking with a guide you will see it is easy to get places from here.

Try Morakar coffee just up the road for a very good, local coffee spot. Also please visit the local woman who runs a tiny bodega just 50 feet down towards the main road. She is very sweet and it is a great way to stock up on waters for the room and support a local family.

The hotel rooms were super clean and well maintained. My standard room was much more spacious than I was expecting. It came with a very nice sized bathroom, full closet, small flat screen TV with ample channel selection, and a fairly comfortable bed. I was super impressed by the in room safe that was big enough for a 15 inch laptop. Most hotels in the US don't have that yet.

Addis is building a metro train that, when completed in a few years, will have a stop right near this hotel. The hotel owner couldn't be nicer, and I think he is a visionary in terms of this old neighborhood being an up and coming area. Well done all around!

The hotel is secure and has guards at the entrance to both the driveway area and the front lobby.

The staff are all very kind and eager to help.

...decent place. Serious effort has gone into making it comfortable. Staff 100 pleasant and most helpful. Complimentary courtesy van from the airport is a major plus. Nearby construction work can be disturbing. But overall pretty good.

I stayed at the Addis Regency on four different occasions in 2012. More than anything, the establishment has achieved a welcoming atmosphere that other hotels in Addis have a hard time to match. The price is fair and the breakfast is all you could wish for. I would not stay at any other hotel when I come to Addis.
