“Good Location and value for money but thats all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Good Points :

1. Very Good Location.
2. Cheap
3. Good cafes and eating places in walking distance.

Bad Things:

1. Room Sizes
2. Service

Maybe good for a day or two's trip. Its not a place where you would like to spend the weekends

Room Tip: The Higher the floor the better for you.

its an average hotel, bad internet in the rooms, shower heads leak all over the place, power plug points that dont have any use and some lights that dont work, food is good, but the staff at restaurant can be pushy in terms of tips, its alright for a layover and thats about it, its way overpriced to what it offers, neighborhood is bad and boring. beds could be better, a hot water pot will help, crapper can be better.

Room Tip: room 605 is better on the 6th floor and make sure your door has good locks on it

This place is clean.
That is my only positive thing to say.
Airport pick up did not happen and no apology or explanation.
Dark and dingy room. Way overpriced for what you get.
The only positive thing (and for that the hotel gets no plaudits) is that the very fine Indian restaurant (Sangam?) is just across the road.
Reccomendation: Pay just a bit more and get much more.

Room Tip: I was at the front and would recommend a room there if you want to be awoken by barking dogs at 4am.

room is spacious, clean bathroom and helpful staff. negative side is security. making smart comments and not allowing any visitors unless you come down and sign. i signed once and they kept asking me everytime to do the same thing. i had to move out due to their behaviour.
location is good by the way overlooking bole road near hebsha resturant.

Room Tip: the higher floor the better

The hotel is about 5 minutes drive from the airport on Africa Avenue. You can walk to the main attraction of the city. Their rate starts around $45.00 if you're using azebot.com to make your online reservation. You have to make sure you make your reservation ahead to get the discount though.

I enjoyed staying in this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is clean and quite in the middle of Addis Ababa "Bole Road". You can feel very safe in this hotel and you will always find a staff who wants to accommodate your requests with a smiley face.
At the same time, don't expect to find a luxurious rooms.

Room Tip: Try to ask for rooms in the first 3 floors as the elevator sometimes doesn't work.

Damu is certainly doing its best to get everything right, but at the moment for every plus there is also a negative. My airport pickup did not arrive, and no one at the hotel apologised for this - not great when arriving at 1 a.m. Noise is a real problem with car alarms, noisy guests and blaring bar music from next door all a problem the hotel has yet to deal with. On the upside, I enjoyed the food, the service was good and friendly, and the rooms excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel for quiet.
