We stayed last October in Sheba Guest house for ten days. The Guest house is located in a very quiet and decent living quarter of Addis Ababa. The area is extremely safe as it is a residential area for Diplomats of different countries. The Guest House offers different type of rooms including Villa. We were in Putty Villa. It costs 90 US dollar per day including tax and Breakfast (for 2 Adults and one Child). We found that Villas Zed was the best and hat its own big garden. Unfortunately, it was occupied by other guests at that time. Anyhow, Putty Villa offers us a sense of privacy and peace. Of course all private houses do not have Kitchen. If you want to cook by yourself, you have to use the Kitchen located n the Main Guest house. The compound is clean and very large. It was surprising to found such guest house with its large compound in the middle of Bole. We were so touched by the hospitality of the staffs. They were so friendly and ready day and night to fulfil our needs. Specially, we would like to thank Binyam, a young worker, who made our stay in the guest house more comfortable. They accept US dollar. It is also possible to pay by credit card. Their paying automat accepts only Visa Card. Our Master Card did not work. During our stay we did not face any interruption of electric power. There was an interruption of Water supply a couple of time. But this is nothing to do with the Guest house. It is a common Problem in Addis because of damage of pipe line during the construction of road. Breakfast is normal like everywhere in Addis Ababa. Of course, the breakfast in Ethiopia is generally disappointing for those who like to have a variety of meal-option.
In general, we had a good time in Sheba Guest house and recommend for others too.
