My fiancee and I stayed at Sheba Guest House for 16 nights and savored the experience. Our room, The Dawit's Room, was perfect for us. The room was cleaned daily; so was our private bedroom. Except for a day when water supply was interrupted, I have no copmplaints about my experience at Sheba Guest House.
Service provided by the staff at Sheba Guest House was excellent. Binyam, Abeba, and Mulu were three of the employees my fiancee and I interacted with regularly, and we really enjoyed their company.
Breakfast was not like I'm used to in the United States, but my fiancee seemed to enjoy it. High speed Internet service was available at a cost of $5 per day. I would suggest to management to include the charges for Internet usage in the cost of stay; the appearance of free Internet service would probably be appealing to potential guests. A more reliable DSL service was installed a few days before our departure.
I will recommend Sheba Guest House to any traveler to Addis Ababa looking to dwell in a quiet residential neighborhood and also enjoy excellent service from a genuine staff.
