This guest house is an incredible find in Addis and was the perfect place for a two and half week stay while working in the city. All the accommodation is spotlessly clean, quiet and well furnished. The staff are efficient, polite and like many other reviews here say, amenable to every need. It was a real relief as a solo... More

GT Guest House is located approximately halfway between the city and the airport. Accommodation is very spacious with large lounge and kitchen shared with other guests on the floor, is immaculate and of overall high standard, with quality local character, but not what I would call quaint. Lee and her team are welcoming and also offer competitive transport to wherever... More

Excellent service and provisions, and they were always "right there," and frequently anticipating needs. They also understood Western expectations and approaches to travel and hospitality (not a given when dealing cross culturally as here). Well done - very well done!

We came to Addis 18 hours after scedual because of much hassel with Ethiopian Airlines. Still the driver waited for us outside the airport, which was perfect! Unfortunately I was really sick the first few days of our stay, but we could't have ended up at a more perfect place; the staff at GT came up to our room at... More

We were visiting Ethiopia in August 2015 and, after much searching we decided to stay at GT Guest House. We were traveling with two children. I am a frequent traveller and have seen many accommodations before. GT Guest house is a different class. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and has a family atmosphere.... More
