Small B&B located in a quiet residential area of Addis but walking distance from the main Bole road where there are numerous stores, restaurants etc. The rooms are clean and very cosy, and the hosts and staff are wonderful and caring - it really feels like a home away from home. The breakfast was outstanding!

I stayed here for two nights as a solo female traveller. My flight was delayed 5 hrs from Dire Dawa and the owner Entutu was very good and came and collected me at the airport when I finally arrived at 930pm (for $10). The B&B is basically a converted home. The gardens are very nice and a good place to... More

We had a great time! The rooms were clean and well kept and the pre-arranged dinner was fantastic! The b&b is close to the airport (+/-10mins) in a modern suburb and in walking distance to Africa Street, where there are banks, restaurants and general stores! The owners and staff are excellent and very willing to help you with anything including... More

What hospitality! This is a very personal guesthouse in the family's home in a very beautiful, secure part of Addis. Located on a pretty, flowering, quiet street in the area between Bole and Medhane Alem, it is a short quiet walk to both down well guarded streets. The GH itself is in a quiet compound with a cute lawn and... More

Peaceful house, in a convenient location for the Airport with clean rooms at a good price. Stopped here for two nights and enjoyed the breakfasts on both mornings, the hot showers and found the staff to be friendly. Will organise pick-ups from the airport even at odd times but remember to print off the instructions for meeting the driver!

Visiting Ethiopia after we worked here 30 years ago. A very nice and peaceful B+B that makes you feel at home. Very friendly hosts. Rooms are small but nice and cosy. Very close to the airport. Nice little garden.

I really enjoyed my stay at Biruk. As a first time traveller to Ethiopia, I had a lot of apprehensions about selecting the right place to stay. Biruk was selected by our local co-ordinator and it was situated at a very convenient location, the rooms were extremely clean with good linens and all basic amenities. The security looked good and... More
