Sometimes okay is ...okay. I mean this as a compliment. I stayed at the Wassamar Hotel in Addis for 4 nights on business. It was the rainy season, rivers of rainwater in the streets, but inside Wassamar I was dry, safe, looked after and fine. My room on the 7th floor was clean and well furnished with a separate lounge,... More

Clean, bright rooms, hot and strong water in the showers, and lots of free water every day. It's a quite nice place for an affordable price, and I always... More

The hotel is very close to the airport, provides good breakfast. It is close to cafes, restaurants and super shops as well. Rooms are relatively small, the bathroom is small as well, but the hotel provides all necessary amenities.

This happened to be the first hotel we stayed in Ethiopia. My wife & I spent about a month between July and August 2015. I dare say the staff here are great and gave me a good general impression about Ethiopians. Always nice, warm and responsive. The rooms are fairly good & comfortable, one minus here is the occasional smell... More

We returned to the Wassamar for two nights (separated by 10 days) last week. We have stayed at the hotel previously and knew what to expect. This is an excellent mid-level business hotel located conveniently on Bole Road. The hotel's management is topnotch, and the staff are friendly and efficient from the doormen to the front desk. The airport shuttle... More

My room was dull and dingy - clean enough but tired looking. The bathroom is very strange. Quite small and yet with a big step which... More
