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. Also the food is delicious! However what really sets this place apart is the service. The owner not only personally provided 2 way airport transfer but... More

One of the few hotels in Addis where smoking is not allowed inside the hotel. The hotel also provides a vehecle and driver for 650 Birr ($32.50) per day which is a lot cheaper than the local...

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 had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The atmosphere is very down to Earth with good customer service. The rooms are very clean and the food is fresh! The room rate is more than reasonable. I would definitely stay there again!

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.
