“Great rooms, good location, and a quality gym”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've stayed at Haimi hotel twice now, once for a 10-day stay when it was relatively new and deserted in August and then for a quick 2-day stopover in late October, when it was full. I really enjoyed my first stay here and was eager to stay again. For me, the main assets are the large and lovely rooms, the location, and the in-building gym, all at a reasonable price. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the front corner rooms have beautiful skyline views. The hotel is well located on a main route, with plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, and bars in walking distance, and taxis available at all hours. The rooms are high enough in the building that I didn't find them noisy at all. The staff is very helpful and well-intentioned, though they do make some mistakes. The gym, which is not just for hotel guests, is very nice, with cardio machines and weights and twice-a-week yoga classes as well. Wifi worked pretty well for me both times.

The hotel service includes lots of perks, some expected, others less so. Both breakfast and dinner are included in the price (breakfast is good, though dinner is a little greasy for my taste). You can also get room service take-away from the Greek restaurant or the pizza place downstairs. Free laundry, returned same day, was included during my first stay. I didn't stay long enough the second time to check if that was still the case. The hotel is close to the airport, and they do complimentary pick-up and drop-off. On my last stay, the driver was already busy with airport pick-ups, so the manager drove me back to the airport himself. I highly recommend this hotel and only wish it had branches in some of the other African countries I regularly travel to.

I stayed in Haimi Apartments for 5 weeks. I loved the location, cleanness, the rooms are very spacious with a nice decent kitchen, complimentary breakfast and dinner, room service, etc. It is real value for money. From the hotel you can walk to various cafes, malls, restaurants and it is very very easy to get taxi at any time of the day. There is also a restaurant down stairs of the hotel and there is Jazz night in the restaurant every Sunday, you would hardly hear any noise from your room except you go down stairs

Haimi also has a gym and steam. There is yoga class every Thursday evening in the hotel by a professional. What more can one ask for.

There is no such bad thing to be shared to be honest. Grab this hotel and stay there. You will appreciate and thank to me. The staff are also very welcoming.

The hotel is not known by a lot of people in Addis as it is still relatively new. I am sure it will full booked soon. Here is their contact details - +251116184141; +2511116181888

Thank you very much for your kind hospitality.

Room Tip: If you are here for long duration, take a room with kitchen.

We stayed at Haimi Apartment Hotel for 3 nights. The double room was awesome. Luxurious design, comfort and relaxation. Views over the city central skyline are spectacular. All rooms have in-room closets, spacious balconies, telephone, big flat TV screen. We were offered complimentary dinner and breakfast, airport shuttle and the fastest internet and wifi in Ethiopia. They also have gym, sauna and other facilities. Price is below average for this quality. They were so helpful and friendly that even allowed us to stay until midnight in our last day because we had a late flight to Europe FREE OF CHARGE! We have been in other hotels in Addis and Ethiopia and, honestly, any time we come to Addis we'll stay in this hotel. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Corner suites are simply amazing, with great views over the city
