I transferred to this hotel for one night after spending seven nights at the Sheraton, which being the most expensive in Addis was a difficult act to follow. (I had extended a work trip by an extra day for sightseeing but the Sheraton was just not in my budget.)
I made the booking directly with the hotel via email and it was secured without a deposit. All of my correspondence was promptly answered within 24 hours.
The Regency sent a vehicle to fetch me from the Sheraton free of charge and allowed me to check in early (10am) at no extra cost although I did not even request this. A free transfer was also provided to the airport on my return home. The room and all common areas were always spotlessly clean. Staff were very helpful and the reception not only called for a taxi (for sightseeing) for me but also negotiated the rate, which I would have had difficulty doing. Free wifi was available in both my room and in the public areas and the signal was always strong.
Probably my only gripe was the fact that my bathroom sink was draining extremely slowly and this was not rectified when I informed the reception about this. However, as this proved to be the exception to what was otherwise an all round exceptionally well-run hotel, I would comfortably recommend this hotel to other travellers.
