I lived at Aclana Lodge from January 12 to March 31st in 2015 and was very, very happy to be there. While working with an NGO I was able to take advantage of the excellent free Wi-Fi and the spacious room and use the desk to do my work. A hearty breakfast was included and that made life easy. There... More

It was my second stay at Aclana, and I truly found it above and beyond accommodating in all aspects of customer satisfaction. The politeness of the lady who prepares breakfast makes you feel a dignitary. All the members of staff were so friendly and very helpful, particularly Netsanet, whom I am so thankful and grateful for her help during my... More

Stayed here for about two months, and it definitely suited my needs. Very close to Bole and all the pricey hotels, but at a fraction of the price. The internet was a bit spotty at times, but the room was made spotless everyday and everyone is wonderful.

Location was very central and safe, the staff was extremely professional and accommodating, the room was clean & spacious. Bed was very comfortable. Pancake, fresh orange juice and coffee/tea for breakfast were delicious. A perfect combination of everything I needed during my stay in Addis Ababa. Such a pity I only spent three nights there.

I’m currently living in Ethiopia and have stayed at Aclana numerous times over the past year when in Addis. I’ve found it to be a comfortable little oasis in the midst of Addis. Staff are always pleasant and helpful, and the manager is professional and quick to respond to emails when making booking arrangements. The rooms are very attractive, spotless,... More

We have stayed on several occasions at the Aclana Lodge and always find it accommodating for our needs. The rooms are always well kept, clean and comfortable and the staff and owners are always very helpful and friendly. Good internet available most of the time and always a good breakfast if we don't leave to early! The only real negative... More

I really enjoyed my time at the Lodge. Staff was amazing and the location is great. It is located very close to shopping and food services. I, particularly, liked the management team that does whatever it can to make your stay comfortable and attend to all your room/trip needs quickly. Rooms were very clean and internet connection was FREE, fast,... More

I stayed here for a week in december 2012 & I was pleasantly satisfied with the service, the rate and finally the room. There is no restaurant at the lodge but they have free breakfast. It's located in the center of the city, walking distance to many restaurants. I will definitely stay here if I ever go back to ethiopia... More
