Lucyland is easily the best place I have stayed in Addis. The rooms are spacious and classy, the staff provide outstanding service, and the food is exceptional.
It is conveniently close to the airport and not too far from the Bole Rd district, but thankfully not in the middle of it.
The menu is a blend of Ethiopian and western dishes and the cook will even try new things for you if you give her a little notice.
A large traditional thatched homestead (modeled on those in the south of Ethiopia) is in the back courtyard. It is a most cool place to hang out, have a traditional coffee ceremony, a reception or even a training seminar if you are in Addis for this kind of work. So much better than the drab western-style conference or reception rooms of the larger hotels.
Lucyland is that kind of place, very well run but personalized to truly make you feel at home. The owners really understand the needs of travellers and this 5 star service attitude runs through the entire staff. They bend over backwards to make you feel at home.
