I think a lot of these bad reviews are unessecarily harsh - my experience at Baro was great I stayed on two separate occasions. The first time my shower wasn't working in my room and they changed my room without an issue. The rooms are clean and well presented. The staff were great arranged me an early taxi to get... More

The place is fine , good shower, rooms dark due to location and poor light bulbs, wifi good, beers etc very expensive, so not many people relaxing on the terrace. Back from street , so no traffic noise problem.

Poor place, terrible and rude stuff. The key didn't work well and borked.. The room is small and the bathroom door didn't close .. We spend there one night and left as soon as we can.. Not recommend at all. There other places in piazza that you can go that better then this place in a fair price..

I guess it is one of the least pricy places in Addis Ababa that we could find, but the experience was not great. There is nothing to say about the room and bathroom, but overall communication was not its best. We were given a 3 bed room for 2 of us, so I believe it is more expensive than a... More

Wow, everyone else is giving this place a really harsh review, but I think it's pretty good. We stayed in 2 other places in Addis and Baro definitely has the best location, good wifi (in the room too! that's crazy for Ethiopia), standard rooms and a very affordable price, especially for Addis. There was hot water at some times of... More

I don't know why she acted too rude but, because of that our conception about the hotel was changed. Cleaning... More

I was often in this place just to have a coffee and enjoy the quietness of the place, but really one day the stuff there was so disgusting. I have been there with my friend (Ethiopian) and they throw him out because they thought he wants to make business there. They did it in such a way I cannot accept... More

Good location, cheap price, friendly people (not all of the staff speaks english, but a lot of people staying there is people trying to help the society living there on an on and off permanent basis so there will always be a lot of very friendly and helpful people). Not clean, but will do for a cheap place, good vibe... More
