We spent a week at the Abyssinia Renaissance Hotel and it was a very pleasant stay. The rooms are large with a modern bathroom (full shower enclosure). The restaurant is exceptional with very nice views of the city and new stadium (still under construction). It is not crowded at all. The only drawback is that the front door is on a side street that most drivers find difficult to locate. Even if they do find it, getting in and out of this small alley can be impossible during high traffic hours. There is very limited parking at the hotel.

Me and two friends travelled from Norway and stayed here for one week for a wedding held at this hotel. The hotel is super clean, has a very friendly staff, good food and a nice terrace bar. When we checked out our flight wasn’t until midnight so we got to keep our rom until we left for no extra charge. Super service! The gym has a spa and the massage was nice :) The hotel is not so close to museums and other things to do, but the area is very safe and close to the airport. I would really recommend this hotel :)

Was not sure what to expect as i am really visit Addis. The hotel was clean and staff very pleasant. But there is a language barrier challenge depending on who was serving me. They offer airport pick up but when i arrive the vehicle was not there. I later learnt that you need to call and let them know that you are waiting. So if you do book please call when you are out and walk to the end of the taxi area were all the other hotel shuttles wait. For the food.... was not really impressed or maybe i was too tired. The hotel is situated in a kind of sketchy neighbourhood so did not do a lot of walking as i had hoped. I did however find a very pleasant taxi driver that was recommended to me by the hotel.

I spent almost a week at this hotel and it has been a wonderful experience. The hotel owner and staff clearly have a focus on attention to detail with all aspects of the hotel from the lobby, to the bedroom, to the bathroom, matching Western hotel standards. The fitness centre was probably the biggest draw for me with a: sauna, steam room, message lounge and brilliant gym. The level of customer service was unmatched, even in my experience at famous and expensive hotel chains such as Ramada, or the Hilton. I would recommend coming to this hotel as it is absolutely worth the price. Personally, I think it's a little bit too cheap for how good it is :)
