I checked out this morning. And after all these years, it was only last night I found out that the hotel was inaugurated by Haile Selasie in 1969. That is a long time ago. So it is really an old place. I love the history/functional/reliable nature of the hotel. The food is okay and the pool and gym attract folks from outside.
It is rather on the high side.. but it has personality, it has a soul. It is also a working distance from most of the UN offices (if it is not very cold).
