Great hostel, nice common room to meet people, good & free breakfast & filtered water. Close to airport. Incredibly helpful staff, especially the owner, Dawit. We stayed there twice & Dawit even arranged a good deal on a room for us elsewhere when the hostel was full. Highly recommend.

it’s a clean guesthouse with a good breakfast and a friendly staff. But I’m just going to give you one tip, how to find it. First of all, it’s near the Atlas hotel intersection which according to every person in Addis, everyone knows where that is. Then look for the Washington Hotel.

Recommended a friend to stay over. I ended up staying over too - loved the homely aspect of it, friendly staff. And close to the airport, as well as being at the heart of where everything happens in the city!

As so often a great budget place is so much better than a mid range hotel. Personal, friendly and clean! Loved the place, the garden and the communal sitting area. Breacky was nice and the location good and safe. Many restaurants nearby and not too far from the airport. Among the +200 budget hotels I've been to one the ones... More

We stayed here for several nights on 3 occasions in March and April, 2016. This is a great place. It’s clean, comfortable, has great staff and is located both near the airport and in the center of things. It's not far from the Somaliland Embassy if you need a visa for that country.

The staff here is friendly, and the rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable. However, the rooms are a bit small, and feel a little overpriced, especially for shared bathrooms. Breakfast is included, but continental. There is a big trash dump in the back that reeked when we were there, and there was no electricity or wifi during our... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You have found Mr. Martins Cozy Place, one of the top rated and the most recommend budget accommodations in Addis Ababa. It is not a coincidence that we are preferred by travelers from around the world,as we are located only 3.2km from Bole International Airport and our neighborhood is the most happening in Addis in terms of the selection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shopping centers,art galleries, banks/ATMs, internet cafes, gyms and cinemas. We are also steps away from easy transport routes to most parts of the city.Mr. Martins Cozy Place is situated inside a quiet, private compound with a two story main building. We have a range of seventeen rooms according to your needs. Our rooms are decorated in simple but tasteful manner and are always clean. Also there is a big communal kitchen for guests to make themselves a healthy meal. To relax, the premises feature a lush garden area and a rooftop terrace with a splendid view in addition to various amenities in order to make your stay hassle free. Our experience in budget accommodations since 2005 combined with our friendly staff allows us to make your stay in Addis enjoyable and memorable. We love what we do, we love meeting new people and most of all we love building experience to better our services. ... more   less
