I just returned from ethiopia and spent 2 nights at Dessies. I've never had a hotel stay like this before. First off, the accomodations are great. Not fancy -but clean, comfortable, and well located.

One thing I enjoyed about it was the service, the staffs hospitality was wonderful. I visited Addis in October for one month. The food was a good mix of Ethiopian and American. The hotel itself was clean and the rooms were comfortable, overall my stay was pleasing!

I was oncemore in Addia Ababa and my choice was Dessiehotel as in March. Same good and clean environment - my recommendation is valid. One change - hotel transport is now really expensive, sometimes it might be better to use a taxi. But the hotel transport is safe and clean - the taxis normally not.
