Our Doma International Medical team from Columbus, Ohio stayed here. We had great food and the staff was very friendly. We were able to be in touch with family and friends on Facebook
because they have WiFi. I would definitely recommend staying here. Everyone who works there makes sure your stay is great.

I stayed here last week and the service was amazing. From the front-desk, to the staff, to the waiters, to the owner's son (Yonas) they are all incredibly helpful. A few quick examples: The place we rented a van from sent the wrong size - so Yonas gave us a ride for free to where we needed to go. Also, after observing we ate most of our meals in our room they brought in a table and chairs. Upon seeing that my daughter was with me, they helped her have the Disney channel (we didn't watch much TV though). The waiter remembered what we liked and would bring it (i.e. - salt, tea, etc) without being asked. The front desk let us stay in our room until our flight left. And on and on. If you like service, this is the place.

Here is what was great about saying here:
- The internet was amazingly fast - and never went down.
- There is food available at all times - and it is VERY good and big.
- The location is very cool - it is walking distance to the "Mall" but still in a neighborhood that is authentic (across the street from a shanty town)
- Everything seemed safe and easy

The only cons (these are minor):
- The flooring is a little worn
- There is no central gathering place like a lobby besides the cafe.
- The noise from the road is noisy if you are on that side (bring earplugs or get the inside)
- There was no stove in the room (we didn't need it though - cheap and good food).

I have stayed in Afro Land and this place is far better. Highly suggest.

I would definitely stay at the Guest House on a second trip. The employees treated you as family. The rooms were very nice, the restaurant was excellent, prices very reasonable and the staff very attentive. For 10x the price you could stay at the Sheraton but the service could not be better.

First of all, The manager Yonas is Sooooo helpful, great and funny. He and the staff made me feel that i was among my own family. The rooms are great, clean and huge! I LOVED the internet speed and the complementary breakfast (of course lol) The tibis (ethiopian food) was awesome (i almost had it every day for lunch and breakfast).The hotel is located very close to the airport, church, edna mall, MKS restaurant, Bole road..... I am def going there next time!!!

Keep up the good job guys!

Cheers!
Yordi

My friend and I had the privilege of staying at this guest house for a week. We were pleasantly surprised at the level of customer service provided, the cleanliness and overall atmosphere. The staff here goes out of their way to accommodate your needs and are quite friendly. They would get you anything you need from phone credit to a hairbrush. The security is great! They never allow anyone up to your room without first giving you a call. The food from the restaurant below always arrived within 15 minutes tops, regardless of the time. The rooms were very clean and most importantly we never ran out of hot water to shower with!! The internet service was excellent as was the free breakfast. Simply put, I found my new home when visiting Addis and would recommend it to anyone visiting.

I had such a great experience staying at Addis guest house, from the pick up from the airport until they dropped me back there again. The rooms were big, clean and spacious and the breakfasts were delicious (the French toast with eggs esp)
The manager Yonus was awesome and very helpful and the rest of the staff were lovely and kind. I only had 3 days in Addis Ababa but would definitely stay there again if I am ever lucky enough to go back to Ethiopia.

My wife and I stayed at Addis Guest House last week for the third time. Our stay ranged from few days to a month and every time we were there they have exceeded our expectation by their exceptional treatment. AGH is not the biggest guest house by any account but their best care for their customers makes up for any difference from the ones that have big names. I have stayed at various hotels in Ethiopia and they are by far the best. What makes this guest house special is their eagerness to be helpful to their clients. We are specially grateful to Yonas who made our stay wonderful. He gave us a ride to and from the airport in a very short notice and under different circumstances and during our stay he made sure we got everything we needed. They made us feel like family members so we strongly recommend them to any guests who value quality customer care.
