“Great guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

A great guesthouse with good facilities and staff. I've been there twice now. I enjoyed the meals and slept well in the OLG. It's quiet there, you can work well. The taxi service was very good: safely and quickly to their destination! And it is a good base for day trips.

Last year I stayed for a week in Orange Lion Guest House. It was a pleasant place to stay. The place is owned by a man who is an Ethiopian, but he lived 25 years in The Netherlands. He speaks Dutch, Amharic and perfect English.

The service in Orange Lion Guest House was excellent, great staff. The price is really affordable and the rooms are clean. The location is around 15 min. from the airport, not that close to the inner city. However, there is no 'real' inner city in Addis Ababa since everything is available everywhere (shops, restaurants, clubs).

There are staying many Dutch guest, since the owner is also a manager of a charity organization called Dires House of Sport. I really can recommend this place!
