Decent hotel for overnight transit. Friendly staff. The food was simple, tasty and neat restaurant. The room is very spacious with good wifi and basic amenities. It's about 15-20 minutes from airport near the presidential district. Recommended for short stay.

This hotel accommodation was provided as part of an airline layover due to flight schedule changes. Bad bad choice and I have filed a formal complaint with the airline. 1. Not that close to the airport 2. Terrible food (when rice landing on your plate sounds like raw rice being poured in a saucepan...be very afraid) 3. No toiletries whether... More

All you can expect from this hotel is that it is clean and close to prison/police hq ... The rooms are nice and clean with a lack of accomodations ... There is also a fine restaurant with tasty dishes ... NO SWIMMING POOL and the spa is yuck!! ... The surrounding area is definately not touristic... For someone who had... More

I spent a night, March 29, 2016, in Room 609 in this hotel while in transit through Addis Ababa. It was obvious that the hotel went to great length to spruce up the room, (and the hotel in general). The bed was big and comfortable, and everything worked well. There was a wi-fi connection, but very weak. The food was... More

Brilliant day in Ethiopia with very friendly staff at the hotel during my 10hr lay over with Ethiopian Airline. Clean hotel, nice view - very very comfortable bed! Safe to walk around the town on your own too.

However when visiting again after eight dats and also at the end of our tour, my impression improved,probably by... More

I stayed in Soramba for 3 long nights last week! Although the rooms were clean and quite decent looking, I knew when I walked into the lobby and saw the makeshift curio shop that it was going to be a less-than-exciting stay! My first problem was with trying to get a decent sleep. The hallways are all tiled and I... More

Hotel Soramba is rated 3 stars. I have found it very suitable as a place in the capital city on 4 different trips to Ethiopia. The rooms are comfortable; the included breakfast is fine and the Muslim chant early each morning reminds you that you are in a different country. The hotel has a good (not great) restaurant and very... More
