Stayed here during an over night layover with Ethiopian Airlines. Personally, I found it a strange choice by the airline(s) as it's quite far from the airport -- it takes about 20-30 minutes in the shuttle bus. There are ample hotels much closer to the airport so I'm not sure what drives the choice to book Soramba. They seem to...

I would like to thank Ethiopian Airlines for giving this Hotel as part of Transit overnight Accommodation and I cant ask for more.

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.

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...

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...

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.
