“Perfect Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My husband and I have been staying at the Nexus for 3 nights in Sept. 2012.
The room was a bit smelly but clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were excellent and the service really good.
Overall very enjoyable.

They are located a bit at the far end of the city and it becomes difficult for u travel especially if you are new. Breakfast and lunch were nice with lots of varieties but they are not really different in tastes although the food tastes good. Service was good and the staff are nice and very friendly. The only thing that annoyed me in my entire stay was the security check at the entrance of the hotel. My 7 nights stay here has been a good one.

I'm staying here three nights on business, and couldn't be happier with the hotel. I like it better than the Addis Hilton. This boutique hotel is new, clean and the service has been wonderful. The hotel is about a mile or two from the airport--very convenient. The hotel shuttle was there to pick us up when we arrived at Bole, and our rooms were ready (always a plus!). The hotel is modern, nicely decorated and the free-wifi is consistent and fast (able to video Skype without a problem). The free breakfast is average, but I find that's typical of any hotel. The only thing I wish was that they served Ethiopian food in the restaurant...I want to eat Ethiopian food while in Ethiopia! I will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside--the front side is facing a restaurant that plays music until 10-ish.

We had a night in the Nexus Hotel, courtesy of Ethiopian Airlines, when a delayed inbound flight meant that we missed our flight to Gonder.

The hotel is pretty modern and pretty forgettable. Everything is fine - the lobby area is nice, the rooms are large enough and clean (but with maybe the smallest TVs in the world) and the food in the coffee-shop is bland but acceptable.

Service was a mixed bag - the waiter in the coffee-shop was very helpful, but we waited over 20 minutes for the bus transferring us to the airport to come around from the hotel carpark, despite asking a number of times where it was...

I don't know about value-for-money as I didn't pay for the night, but I'm sure it's reasonably priced and is more than good enough for a short stay.

After the government seized a pre-booked room in a different hotel due to an impromptu African Union meeting, Nexus came to the rescue. The general manager, Mr Samso, personally picked us up and made sure our stay went smoothly.

The rooms are clean, luxurious, and the staff is very friendly. The restaurant chef personally greets their customers on occasion.

Perhaps the best attraction is that they're half a block from one of the most traditional and fun restaurants we experienced in Ethiopia, with live Toto music and delicious food.

Have stayed in a few hotels in Addis. Nexus was only open for about two weeks when i stayed. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The location is close enough to airport and other amenities via transport. For the price structure, and there new facilities, its hard to come across a better value in addis. Had a great pleasurable stay. At the time the electronic door locks weren't yet in service, so had to carry around bulky key always, could be operational now. Few small things lacking as they recently opened (do not disturb signs etc), but those could be fixed by now, as a few months have passed. Overall I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try to negotiate the suite prices, if there not full you can sometimes get discount on this.

We really appreciate for the comments your wrote on Nexus Hotel. As we are doing our best to improve our service daily our reviews are very important to let out know our weakness and strength.
One thing we have done from the thing you said we didn't have is the Do not disturb signs, we have that now in place and we are working on the electronic doors because of the software incompatibility.
We will do our best the fix this issues soon and make your future stays at Nexus Hotel very convenient.

We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you in our hotel on your next Visits to Ethiopia

I stayed at the Nexus with a group of airline passengers for one night during an unexpected layover in Addis Ababa. The airline is affiliated with the Nexus in agreement to provide lunch, dinner, and breakfast as well as transpotation to and from the hotel. The staff was very accomodating for us and very friendly. They all spoke good english and accepted euro's in the lobby bar. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: I stayed in a room on the first level near the stairs and it was noisy throughout the night, however...
