Reviewed April 28, 2011

We stayed here two different times on our trip around Ethiopia. The first time we arrived late and our room was not available. The night manager place us in a very small room out back with a non-working bathroom in the hall. Not what we expected. We were very unhappy, but at 10:30PM with our driver gone, we had no choice. The next day we complained to the General manager as we planned to change to another hotel. He explained what had happenned (a tour group had not checked out as planned) and acknowledged that the previous evening had been handled badly. He profusely asked for a second chance. We finally agreed. The rest of our stay and return later in the month was wonderful and I am glad that we gave them a second chance. Our room was lovely. I tell this story because I became convinced that the problem we had was not the norm and the young night manager did not effectively explore all the available options before dumping us in the back room.

My group of 3 stayed here last week for 3 nights. I was pleasantly surprised. We got an extra single bed brought into the room so we could all stay together. The service was good, the shower was hot, internet connection was fast, and breakfast was included. The only drawback was that our room overlooked the courtyard. It was a little noisy until about 11pm. All in all, I recommend this hotel.

We arrive for the UA Summit 2010 at 4.00 in the morning to just find out that our rooms had been given to other passengers coming some minutes befor us. My 2 colleagues were given a room on the ground floor, behind the hotel without a key on the door or courtains on the only window. For that the management wanted to charge them 100 $ each. Being a women i seems I was given a last minute prepared room on the parking lot. The guards talked with high voice untill I had to leave bed 2 hours after. For this short stay and a mediocre breakfast I was made to pay 100$.

Spent two nights here when first arriving in Ethiopia and was mostly pleased with this hotel. Just do not get a room which overlooks the parking lot since it is noisy at night. The hotel is gated with guards for extra security and offers free internet. For me the best feature was quick rooms service.

We stayed one night at the Adot-Tina at the start of our trip and then again for our last night. It was fine the first night - slightly alarmed by the plug in the shower but then learnt that this is standard in Ethiopia - it was our first night here! Breakfast was good and the staff friendly. The second time around, the hotel was even better. We had a bigger room, which was very clean. The location was good too - there were bars and restaurants within easy walking distance and no hassles.

After reading all of the raves on TripAdvisor we eagerly awaited our stay at the Adot Tina. Unfortunately the hotel is not as promised. We reserved a junior sweet and our first room we looked at was on the top floor overlooking the courtyard. There was a water pump above the room that repeatedly squeaked. We asked for another room and they moved us down to the second floor also on the courtyard. The courtyard is noisy with cars pulling up to the hotel.

The rooms are warn and passably clean. I would would normally forgive this in Addis but it was consistent throughout the hotel. The internet was not working, which is very common in Addis, and there is no wireless in the hotel. Only Ethernet in the rooms and at the business center. The internet never worked when we were there. The hotel does not have a backup generator , and with frequent power outages in Addis, its nice to stay in a hotel that has one.

The food was ok and breakfast was messy but edible. The staff was friendly even though our porter completely scammed us on a sim card for our phone the night before. Naively we paid him too much for a sim card, which turned out to be his own sim card. I tried come back later in the week to discuss this with him but he was not there. Lessons learned in Addis.

The next morning we promptly checked out and went to the PANORAMA and stayed there the rest of the week! It's a great hotel and the ADOT-TINA could learn a lot from them.
