“It IS actullay a family experience :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

A fantastic place where you really feel taken care of. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is very homely and made to order in front of you and the hostess really makes it comfortable with her tips and all the help with the local maps, bus routes and security guidelines.

The guest house is close to the airport and they arrange transport at a nominal fees as well.

Only drawback was the water pressure in the shower ( perhaps I was there on a bad day since another restaurant went out of water the same evening).

Also, this is convenient if you have a stopover or only make infrequent visits to city centre as this is a bit away from the center.

There is a 24 hour bar/restaurant called Red Fox just outside the B&B and is a FANTASTIC value for money ( Beer and main course for about $3.

I would go back to this place again if I have a short trip to Addis.

Room Tip: Warning: I was robbed by 5-7 year olds near this B&B. The hotel had warned me about them but the...

I have stayed here upon several occasions, and found the food to be wonderful, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the staff nurturing. I will most definitely return when in Addis next.

Room Tip: The rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor are the quietest. I really enjoyed the way in which the staff che...

We stayed here several times, while in Ethiopia. The staff are wonderful- it is managed by Jasmine, a lovely woman, extremely helpful and kind. We were traveling with three children, who came to consider this a home from home. It is clean, value for money, and serves the most delicious food, with a Mexican slant- a welcome change from the usual fare! The location is good- a ten minute walk to Bole road.

The hotel is not anything special, but it is clean; has a kitchen for your own use; a nice common space; and the breakfast is actually quite good. For 20$, it is a good place!

It is about a 20 minute cab ride to Bole Rd.

The owner is also an interesting lady to stay the least. Will stay again next time I am Addis.

The manager is very helpful. The owner is a beauty and very nice. The only issue I had was due to the noise during the day and night. I couldn't get the kind of sleep that I was dying for. The hotel staff are very helpful and courteous but I wanted some good sleep. I even had one of the best rooms but each time someone came to the lobby to eat I heard the whole conversation. I also heard the kitchen staff preparing for the day early in the morning so that woke me up too. I paid for a week stay but left after the 2 day. The manager said I already paid for the week so no refund. No problem though because I know they were doing their best so I just decided to let it go and try another hotel. I recommend this hotel for those who are only planning to stay in Addis for a few hours.

Room Tip: Probably the shared bathroom rooms due to the distance from the lobby. I'm sure those rooms wer...
