“For once an honest value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I travel across Africa and my work often takes me to Addis. The challenge with most Addis hotels is that what is advertised and what you get is a world apart. So I learned to lower my expectations as I was brought to this rather small hotel. From the moment I entered I was pleasantly surprised with the antique touch of the décor and visibly good quality furnishing and finishing (unlike cheep Chinese replicas in most other hotels). I spent a pleasant stay, breakfast was excellent - amazing coffee, Airport drop off was punctual, staff a bit slow - but I guess its more an Ethiopian thing. The best char is probably the location as you can walk around to variety of locations around.
