With new buildings and hotels being constructed everywhere you look in Addis Ababa you would think the hotel prices would be going down. That is not the case which is part of what makes Weygoss Guest House a hidden gem. With all the construction nearly all hotels in Addis are going to be victim to the sounds and nearly daily less than one hour power outages. As of October 2012, Bole road is undergoing some major construction of its own but the next road over brings easy access to Weygoss.
Weygoss holds to Ethiopian culture with the hospitality of the staff, daily traditional coffee ceremony and traditional designed bed linens. The breakfast beats the continentals more commonly offered with other hotels. They do not serve lunch or dinner but are more than willing to place orders for you to be delivered by some nearby restaurants. The internet is average and the televisions are small but they get the job done. The satellite channels can be changed with the staff if the current selection doesn't suit you.
The rooms have a bit of an old feel and the bathrooms are subject to some constant water dripping. They can also use a touchup and removal of some mold though it is out of reach of anyone using the bathroom. The standard room bed is a double size and can accommodate a couple but do expect to be in contact with each other.
The price, hospitality and location make this a recommended option to those traveling to Addis Ababa. Don't forget to walk all the way up the stairs to the rooftop for some great scenery of the city. I would highly recommend Weygoss to bring a bbq to the rooftop and it would be a wonderful location for lounging, feeling the warmth of the sun and viewing all nearby.
