“conveniant stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2009

Istayed here in between internal flights around the country three seperate times in one holiday. The staff were great and friendly the rooms were adequate but small high window.Icould order in food from a comany called ice blue,room service of good pizzas and cold beers CSI on the box thats good enough for me.Breakfast was served in lobby area which was a bit cramped if you timed it wrong but very nice food and very good coffee . I bought a pound of steak from a local butcher chopped it up and fed it to diving black kites from the sunny roof terrace, testing photography.

It is a great place for people looking to stay at a clean, comfortable, budget hotel. The staff is great. Its very close to lots of restaurants and you can order in as well. Breakfast is served in your room or at a table in the lobby, whichever you prefer. People adopting children, Europeans getting ready to set out on an adventure, people from everywhere, including locals, manage to find their way to the Weygoss. Unlike most hotels, you have a chance to interact with other guests if you so desire. I had a single room which was adequate but modest...the double rooms were beautiful!

We stayed at the Weygoss in early October. We travelled to Addis to pick up our daughter along with 8 other Canadian families. Our room was great with a balcony and bathroom. Although the guesthouse is very clean, some families did get bed bug bites (including our 9 month old daughter) but I wouldn't not come back because of this. The location was convenient and the staff exceptional. They were always willing to help and even helped translate when some of the families needed help with their newly adopted children. The front desk staff helped new parents with their new little girls hair and the guards outside loved to keep the older kids entertained, as long as we provided the soccer ball:) Cloud 9 served lunch and dinner at the hotel (in your roon if you desire) and has a great variety. Makush is next door and is also excellent. It is cheaper to eat from a restaurant then do groceries. The Weygoss does provide a kitchennette on every floor, with a sink, a fridge and hot plate. Bring your own dishes.
All in All, it was an excellent stay and we will go back on our next trip to Addis.

We stayed here when I travelled to Ethiopia to adopt my son. We had an amazing stay, staff was helpful, bedrooms were clean and large. We had a junior suite. The breakfast was included in the price.
Every evening, we were able to order food in from the Ice Blue..they would deliver to the hotel's dining area or to your room. Food was excellent as was the staff.

I got a chance to stay at Weygoss during my stay in Addis. I stayed there for over three months. The room was very clean and fresh. The food was perfect. They gave me wonderful breakfast every morning, and on time. The staff was very friendly. I ended up being very close with the whole team. The place is conveniently located, with proximity to restaurants, cafes, the airport, plus it's located in a modern part of the city. I would recommend this place to families, singles, and everybody who's going to addis and wants a comfortable setting.

We never got to actually stay there, despite having booked and paid for 11 rooms. The hotel decided to give most of our rooms away and wanted to put half of our party in another hotel right across the other side of town. During the day we had been calling them to let them know about our arrival and at no point did they manager see fit to advise us of this change. The manager also decided not to be present when we arrived (she knew exactly when we were coming) leaving a poor receptionist to deal with all the flak, not only from our group but also from other individuals who had also been bumped out of there rooms.

As the place does not do evening meals we needed to all go a restaurant and get to bed as we had a very early flight the following day. The inconvenience is obvious but more than that I was digusted by the attitude shown by everyone who worked there - they clearly were not bothered by the way they had treated us and the other guests who lost rooms.

In the end we managed to find another hotel that could take all of us (the Lalibella by the airport) and that turned out to be fine. Actually having seen how many screaming kids were running around the corridors of the Weygoss, getting bumped out oof there may have been a blessing in diguise. Avoid this place like the plague.
