Simple room, hot shower, nice staff, got a free pickup from the airport, and complete breakfast every morning. In a quiet area just off the main Bole Rd to the airport. 15 min walk to "Red Terror Museum," well worth a visit.

That's a huge $$ saving! - friendly and very helpful staff - Great breakfast spread, buffet plus an omelette chef... More

We spent 3 nights at La Source Guesthouse it's close to the Bole Airport. The rooms are simple but really clean, the stuff is friendly and helpful. Great if you won't spend too much for a room in Addis Abeba. Around the guesthouse they are a lot restaurants.

Hotel is very well located a short drive from the airport but also close to Bole Rd., a big avenue with restaurants, cafes, shops, and access to public transport. Rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and the value, which includes airport transfer, breakfast, and wifi is excellent. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the owner is positively delightful.

I spent two nights here and was happy with the cleanliness, room size and assistance with getting electrical adapters. The proprietor even invited me to join in a family meal one afternoon! Although the staff know little English, they do their best to be accommodating.

Staff: pleasant but incompetent. No help lugging four pieces of luggage up three flights of stairs. They could not help me with a phone call to confirm a reservation because none of their cell phones worked. I told the night clerk we needed a 7 a.m. ride to the airport; she neither arranged the ride nor told the day clerk... More

We made La Source Guest House our place to go to when travelling around Ethiopia. In all, we spent 6 nights there. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The staff was always very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. The restaurant food was good and again the staff very nice. Our only complaint would be barking... More

I stayed at this hotel prior to flying out of Ethiopia upon the suggestion of friends living in Addis. I booked a "small room" only to find that it was in fact two rooms with a private bathroom. Although the rooms were rather small, this was ideal for me and the luggage I had accumulated during my time away. Since... More

This place is value for money. Good service (our hot water was fixed instantly), clean and a bit more spacy than other places we encountered. They offered a airport shuttle late in the evening, although we only stayed until the night before, which was very kind. Good breakfast and easy going personnel in numbers.

I visited it in January 2014. The hotel is not in the city center, but it's good option for the price/ quality range. The rooms are rather small and the furniture is old. The breakfast was included. Free wifi. No Master card, as everywhere in Ethiopia :-(
