I just returned from my 17th year of visiting Ethiopia during the summer. This time I stayed at the Kings Hotel. being a frequent visitor there, they treat me like a king. The staff is so friendly and will cater to any reasonable request. From shoe shine, clean laundry, make up the room, room service, coffee to my room, great... More

I was shown into what was supposed to be a clean and ready room, but I don't think it had been cleaned at all. The floors were dirty to the point where they turned my feet black when walking around barefoot, and the bathroom exuded a constant low-grade foul smell. My bed looked like it had been slept in with... More

I had booked this hotel a month before travelling on 23 March 2015. But when I arrived on 19 April 2015 I was told that they did not have any room. The Night Manager did not even bother to ask the name. The Night Manager then started telling me other hotels where I could go to.

Kings Hotel is located very close to the AU on one of the busy streets. What I like about the hotel is that they are constantly updating and improving the rooms. The staff are very helpful and the rooms are quite large. It is still a third world hotel with wobbly beds, but it is clean and secure. The Wi-Fi... More

The best thing about this hotel is that it is walking distance from the AU Head Quarters and that it has Wi-Fi of reasonable speed. I stayed there for four nights and I think I got the worst room in the hotel because I was the last to check-in. The lights were deem and they could not repair/replace them. The... More

we did enjoy our stay at Kings. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We were there for Ethiopian New Years and had a good time being invited to the coffee ceremony. Yes, I agree the hotel needs some maintenance, especially with leaky plumbing. The internet worked most of the time and most importantly it was near the people we... More

I was attending a three day summit at the slick New Africa Union Complex and needed a hotel that would be within walking distance and my local contacts recommended the Kings Hotel. True, the location is good and their were signs that the hotel may have had some grand glorified past but I was not happy with their maintenance. The... More
