I have already stayed in Sidama twice now. Since this is the only hotel I have stayed in Addis I can't compare it with any other hotel But it's a good hotel for short and long stay. Friendly staff which is ready to help always. They were even able to get me a sim card for my stay there. Just... More

My wife and I had an enjoyable stay 6-day stay at the Sidama Inn while visiting our son and his family who are working in Addis. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Our room was quite large with rather spartan furnishings, but we had everything we needed including a small kitchenette. All the utilities worked fine. The building is... More

I'm almost reluctant to write a review of this place because I want it all to myself! Sidama Lodge is perfect. The staff are all incredibly nice and attentive, the location is ideal, and the place actually has character! The hotel is filled with Ethiopian paintings, both traditional and modern, that are up for sale. It even hosts exhibitions from... More

Very spacious and clean. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is slow but tasty. Good security. Got a 6 bir shoe shine. Hair dryer and adapters available. Great location! Very loud at night. We heard chickens, rosters, cars, and nearby music. Hot water runs out after 2 showers. Many nearby shops and restaurants within walking distance. Overall a good experience, we... More
