The Dessalegn could be a nice hotel, that offers clean and reliable services to the business traveler who doesn't want or who cannot stay in the affluent Hilton or Sheraton. The free airport transfer for instance is a big asset.
My room at the top floor was ok, with its somewhat older furniture because the wooden floor was spotless clean. The bed was a little short for a 6-feet person, but ok one can deal with it.
What made my stay at Dessalegn particularly unpleasant was that the doors to the room were very poorly islolated against noise and that you could hear every sound from the people walking past my room.
Very disappointing was that they charge extra for the gym access. Having seen the gym from the outside, I would not recommend it , as it is quite small. But as a guest in the hotel to pay extra for the gym? No way. I have travelled extensively, but never before was I supposed to pay extra for the gym. Hotel staff was moreover not willing to raise my complaint with the management.
Poor service and I will avoid this hotel in the future.
The top floors of the main building have a nice view in most of the directions. Try to get a room on...
