Gone are the glory days of Axum Hotel. It used to be the "it" place for a long time but now, its one of the most outdated hotels in that area. Old furniture and musty carpets awaits as you enter your room. The bed cover had visible stains on it. Most of the rooms in the middle of the building... More

Was reserved this hotel instead of fully booked other hotel while visiting for business. On 2 first nights there were 2 wedding parties that went on loudly until about midnight. Pretty disappointing, to say the least. Then there is the worn carpet that seems to have had some pattern many years ago but now is just wrinkled all over. So... More

Worn out and thread-bare in need of some tlc and reinvestment. Staff are very nice, chef is talented but unschooled. Nice bar with english pub feel to it, free wifi. Food offered is not very european aware. Own generator for the frequent power cuts. Very cheap so no complaints (£35 per night, two adults double room). I will go again... More

This hotel got the worst service!! The good thing's are the breakfast and the gym!! But if you ask any help at the reception and they tell you that they will sent somebody up, your lucky if they really do!! The girl at the reception did not speak english so it could be that this just was to much to... More

My colleague and me went to Axum restaurant from the hotel with the same name to have diner. We were surprised by the 'amuse' and enjoyed beef and a fish pan. Very friendly and competent staff. With drinks at a reasonable price. A pity we were the only guests......

The rooms are clean - just what you would expect for a hotel of its size. I found the price a little to expensive for the value it offers. The staff are friendly, especially those who work at the bar in the lobby. I was with friends who coupled up to share twin bed rooms and they had nice rooms;... More

this was a clean and very comfortable place to stay- about 10 minutes from the airport and central to most amenities. The staff went out of their way to make me comfortable- I arrived from the airport at 8 am and they rushed to get a room ready for me. Once there, I had trouble with the internet connection and...

We've stayed in this hotel many times and the staff are generally very helpful. The gym is a real bonus with excellent facilities for Ethiopia and very helpful assistants. Meals and service are generally very good, but transport to and from the airport is unreliable. Paying by debit or credit card was often difficult due to system failure. Internet was... More
