The location is convenient (close to the airport and just off Bole Road), the neighbourhood is quiet and the facilities are excellent.

The most annoying thing about this hotel is its`proximity to the airport. All flight take offs and depatures can be heard loud and clear. The rooms are average , the staff are too kind but the noise made me go crazy!

I got married in Addis Ababa and stayed here for the wedding night....as an American I loved the breakfast! And while I was in Addis I stayed either with family or a rented home, so having access to Wi-Fi was great! It's quiet, small and very clean. Enjoyed the one-night stay!

I highly recommend this place for short or long term stay in Addis. They have three types of rooms. I stayed at the suite that is very large with... More

Previously, in Addis I stayed in the Nigist Towers which is a no frills 100 USD a night 3 star hotel (it should be 2 stars) which has as its only main attraction that it is close to the UN compound and centre of the city. This time I chose Bole Guest House and first impressions were good. The guest... More
