We were traveling on Ethiopian airlines with a stopover in Addis, Ethiopian airlines they provide a hotel free of charge as part of their stopover program and booked us in this hotel. We arrived close to midnight after waiting at least an hour for the shuttle at the airport. The lobby looks ok, the rooms are large but a bit tired. The main issue was the cockroaches throughout the room. My wife refused to stay and we left at about 1 am to find another bug free hotel which we paid for at our own expense. For that reason, I would not recommend this hotel.

Stayed here a couple of nights, first for a conference then a week later on my way back home. The rooms are larger than usual and nicely furnished. Staff is helpful and friendly. Both bathrooms I had were in need of maintenance but everything was clean and neat. The breakfast was average, but ok.

I stayed one night and slept poorly due to jet lag. The bed was on the hard side with a soft pillow. I used ear plugs so noise was not an issue. The room was well furnished with a lot of amenities and a great view of the city. Up the road are some shopping malls and food options and it's only a few minute's drive from the airport. You get x-rayed every time you enter the hotel (which is fairly common in the city - some museums and malls require x-rays or pat downs as well). Both the shower and bathtub drain on the floor, so use the bathroom shoes provided by your bed when walking in there afterwards. The dinner buffet included several vegetarian and meat options, Ethiopian and international cuisine. The breakfast buffet included pancakes, various pastries, fruit and cereal.
