“Clean and attentive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Stayed for 12 days in March 2012. Friendly staff--rooms are small. Would be worthwhile to spring for a larger room, especially if you are staying for awhile. Food is decent, especially the pastas. Breakfast is complimentary--I generally stayed away from the buffet and ordered off the menu (also included). Internet is sporadic--to connect via the hardwire connection, I had to reconfigure settings on my laptop (never fun). There is wireless (sometimes) in the lobby. Power would come and go--if you stay here, be sure to head over to Fendika Azmari Bet...the best nightclub in Addis.

Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel recently. Stayed 4 nights. Hotel is very clean and room was comfortable. Food was very good. The service was excellent - the staff were very friendly, helpful and accomodating. Power went off occasionally for brief periods, but I think this is just normal in Ethiopia, and Africa in general. (Am pretty sure the hotel had its own back up generator) Hotel was excellent value for money and I would gladly stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: We had a bit of road noise at the front of the hotel, but managed to sleep well regardless. But if...

Stayed here or a week and found it to be quite good for a non-international hotel in Ethiopia, price and quality considered. We were fortunate to have one of the largest rooms and that always helps. breakfast quite good, various options for cooked breakfast and fresh juices, although you had to be an early bird to get the orange juice....

He advertised swimming pool was no relly there, but we did not count on it either. Could otherwise have been a big disappointment.

Very friendly and sweet staff, eager to please.

Would come back for a medium-cost stay.

Room Tip: Ask for size....

I had an extended stay at this hotel in December 2011. They provided a complimentary shuttle from the airport to the hotel. One of the first things you notice as you walk through the front doors is the cleanliness. Everywhere from the lobby to the hallways and rooms are spotless. Also of note, the service was fantastic. The entire staff was eager and willing to lend a hand or answer questions. The hotel's restaurant also is very good. I usually ate breakfast there and really enjoyed their fruit juices as well as the pancakes and porridge. I also had lunch and dinner there a few times and found the meals to be delicious. There is broadband internet connection in every room via ethernet cable. From time to time the power would go out, but from what I understand this is an issue not unique to this hotel. Typically the power outage would not last longer than a minute or so.

Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an enjoyable yet affordable stay. While it may not have all of the amenities of the big hotels, the service you receive makes you feel like you are not just a number but a valued guest.

I stayed at the Edna Addis Hotel from January 23-27, 2012. The hotel was clean (spotless, in fact), and the room was extremely comfortable. The room rates are very reasonable. The staff were exceedingly pleasant and helpful (happy to call taxis and suggest places to eat and visit), and the breakfast (Western-style) was very nice, with good service. Occasionally the electricity would go off, but it was generally turned back on within a few seconds. The surrounding area is quite poor but seemed safe, and there isn't really anything much to do to do within walking distance. On the whole I thought this hotel was a very good value and certainly a good choice, especially for business travel. It is only about a 10-15 minute drive from the airport, as well.

I spend few nights in this hotel and it was really nice. specially the food is excellent. The hotel is at the center of the city and few minutes drive from the airport. I paid a very fair price. If you are planning to stay at cheap but good quality hotel you should visit this hotel before you make a decission. The staff was excellent and helpful. I loved it and I will always be staying at this hotel.

Room Tip: Book the suite as it is very cheap.
