Stayed there for a week and I was pleasantly surprised with the room. Good water pressure for the showers and a wonderful view. But no room service, terrible WiFi and the fact that the breakfast buffet runs out of food choices took away from the experience.

My husband and I stayed four nights at the beginning of our Ethiopia trip and one night at the end. We really liked this hotel. We stayed in a suite, which was spacious with a nice balcony. The shower was big and had good water pressure and the bed was very comfortable. We had a small kitchenette, which we didn't use. The staff all spoke English really well and could not have been more friendly. Breakfast was good, but we went down to the restaurant next door and their special foul was incredible for breakfast. I'd definitely recommend that. There is also a Tomoca in the building, which is amazing for a quick Ethiopian coffee. Location is great, near to the airport and lots of restaurants. They also arranged airport pick up and drop off for us, with no hassle. Overall, this is a great hotel for this price and we would definitely stay here again when in Addis Ababa.

Like the title states, this is one of the best views in Addis. The hotel is relatively small and only occupies floor 4-6, as the other floors are leased out to businesses. Each room is like a mini self contained apartment. Huge bed, kitchenette area with fridge, cabinets, cooker and over. Then the bathroom is off to the side and quite spacey. The bed to balcony area is where you truly get your money’s worth. Slide back the blinds, pull open the sliding doors and you’re looking directly at Medhane Alem Cathedral, to your left - so close, you can pick out the Sunday prayer crowd. While, laid out before you is the entire city, with the mountains in the distance. So, while the hotel is lovely, there were a few major let downs, like: the shower flooding the rest of the bathroom and despite raising this and being assured it’d be fixed, it wasn’t; my room wasn’t cleaned for about three days until I insisted (I wasn’t informed I had to leave my key at reception before heading out, if I wanted my room cleaned); some furnitures were a bit old. Which is why my review rating is an average rather than higher. However, I believe if you have a mind set of renting a room in an apartment rather than renting a hotel room, you’ll truly enjoy your stay and it’ll be worth it - well except for the bathroom issue. Pros - Balcony views - Medhane Alem Cathedral (Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo cathedral is the second largest cathedral in the whole of Africa and the largest in Ethiopia) is located next to the building - Less than 15 minutes from the Airport - Shopping Mall about 5-10 minutes walk - Tomoca coffee house on the ground floor of the Impress Hotel building - Kategna traditional restaurant on the ground floor of the Impress Hotel building - It’s more like an apartment than a hotel room, and you’ve all the utensils and amenities you need - Lovely staff that are very willing to assist - Airport shuttle pick up is super nice and per the city standards, will have you feeling like VIP - Security downstairs (which is great as the area is very dark and quiet once the restaurants shut at night - circa 11pm/12am) Cons - Church prayers are super loud and transmit far and will disturb/disrupt your sleep (it earplugs work for your, bring them. You’ll need them especially if your stay is from about Friday - Sunday or during any religious/fast periods) - Spotty WiFi - Room 602, which I maintain offers the best in the hotel has a crack shower floor. This wasn’t fixed despite raising this numerous times. The water leaks out and floods the bathroom until it eventually drains out - It’s more like an apartment than a hotel room (this is also in the Pro list. It depends on your travel preference) - Neighbourhood very quiet and dark at night (after 11pm/12am)

Booked as a last minute hotel on a budget as we needed up to a week in Addis unexpectedly. Rooms are huge and extremely comfortable and clean. Twin balconies not much of a street view but mountains in the distance were beautiful. Added extra nights at a moment’s notice and did not have to change room. Staff were helpful, friendly and just so lovely. Definitely would stay here again. Great location in Bole. Minutes to great bars food and shopping
