Never use Commercial Bank ATM's. They dont work properly, they charge your account without receiving cash , and then their 24 hours customers service foolish you that will return the amount back in 5 minutes while they lie. Absolutely useless.

We stayed for 3 nights and were able to enjoy the glitter and kitschy ambiance of the hotel. Sometimes no hot water, or no water at all...sometimes a party (saturday a very loud 'event' took place on the second floor. We were on the 8th floor and still it was loud...I wonder how people survived on the third floor that... More

I spent a night here after missing my Flight back to Uganda. Hotel has airport pickups. Its in the middle of the town. The rooms were spacious and elegant. What i loved most was the bathrooms in the suites.. The breakfast was awesome too.

Near the airport. But the hotel needed a renovation. The funny thing are the bathroon with a very kitsch bath with music, light and water. I had fun. The reception should also be improved too slow and not professional for a hotel with many rooms. Near bars and restaurants

Good hotel for layover on Ethiopia airways. No aircon and noisy room. Friendly service and good airport transport. Food mediocre. The night I was there wifi Internet was not working. As a layover much beter than staying at airport but would not stay there for a extended period of time

This hotel was given by Ethiopian Airlines as a layover. I arrived at night and the check in process was smooth. I had a late dinner at the restaurant on the second floor and I enjoyed the meal. In fact I customized the pasta that I ordered and the chef came out afterwards to make sure I enjoyed the meal,... More

I stayed here because my usual hotel was full. What a bad idea. The room I was given was right next to the construction site next door. When I asked for a different room because of the noise, my request was denied-but later I was moved. The new room was dusty and the shower flooded. I would only recommend staying... More

Friendship International Hotel is a 2 yr old hotel that claims to be 4 stars but is really 2 or 3. On the surface, it looks flashy. Underneath, the quality of the facilities are subpar. Toilets are rocky, showers flood the bathroom floor even though the shower is in its own enclosed glass case. I did not try the fancy... More
