“New Hotel with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were very happy with our stay at the Ag Palace. They were one of the few places that let you pay by Visa, which was nice and the hotel restaurant, while not amazing, was at least reasonably priced. It is so new that our driver had a hard time fiding us.

If you get an airport pickup and you do'nt see anyone at the main gate inside the airport, be sure to go outside and down the ramp, which is where most of the drivers have to wait.

The staff was very helpful. Some noise from the street was audible in the room but we fell asleep anyways. Rooms were small but clean and good wifi. CLose to the airport.

This is a new hotel with clean, cozy rooms and tasteful decor. The restaurant was excellent and the service quick. Everyone, from the manager and receptionist to the doorman, went out of their ways to be friendly and helpful. Great wifi, too.

The view from the rooms is nothing less than extraordinary. I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel when I was visiting Addis and I was impressed. The cleanliness of the rooms defines all the myths about Addis hotels and the crews were just amazing. My family and I were truly satisfied with our experience. It’s a must see!!!

I travel a lot to Addis, and was very lucky to be one of the first customers in this Brand new hotel. Very cooperative staff, very convenient location, especially when you think that half of Addis Ababa is under construction and going about your daily business in the traffic is hectic.
Moving about in Addis from this location compared to other areas was absolutely great in saving my time.

The WiFi, I used to try to find spots where I could access internet ... and in Addis this is a job in itself! The hotels WiFi is really good and for those who are in constant need of internet access, which is pretty fast by Ethiopian standards is A God sent. And it's free!

Good job and from their new beginnings, believe it will not be my first time to stay there.

I would say its the best value for money anywhere in Addis Ababa.

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd and 4th floor have a great view ...

Stayed in this brand new hotel for a week. Excellent service, very clean and tidy hotel. It was very convenient location to all parts of Addis which made my short one week stay in Addis easier. Close proximity to Airport too. I would highly recommend it to any one planning a trip to Addis.
