The rooms are good and the price is average for Addis. The internet (avoid the 5th floor at all costs, no internet there) is unreliable. The service at the restaurants both the 1st floor and the beer bar is terrible - we waited over 1.5 hrs for food and then up to 45 mins for the bill. The reception staff are charming and helpful. there are plenty cockroaches but this is to be expected in a building of that age. On checkout you cannot get an invoice, which is a big problem. The area is a hotel district, with many new hotels being built which will offer more modern and clean facilities than the BGI; the area is also full of brothels ("massage"), beggars; and bag snatching. it's near a major church and mosque - early morning prayers are broadcast from both: you will definitely need earplugs! There are lots of good resturants around, rather go out (but dont carry any bag) than eat in the hotel
