I stayed here for 3 nights, and it was very comfortable. The airport was very close, and there were many walkable places around the guest house. It's in a residential, embassy neighborhood and was very safe. I reserved a room with a shared bathroom, but there was rarely anyone else using the bathroom so it wasn't a problem. Delicious, hearty... More

There's so much to write about Biruk B+B, all extremely positive. It was exactly what I hoped for: a place that made me feel at home, charming hosts and kitchen staff, easy access to various offices and tourist sites all over sprawling Addis. I'm so fortunate to have stayed there. 1. The location: Addis is busy, busy, with traffic snarling... More

It's easy to fall for Biruk B&B. It's a residential home that is affordable, clean and close to the airport. The staff are exceptionally friendly, serve a delicious breakfast and go out of their way to make you feel at home.

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

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
