Reviewed November 5, 2011

I stayed at the Jupiter Hotel in Addis for 5 nights. I was travelling solo -- from Canada. The hotel staff was friendly and the hotel was very clean. Breakfast was a real disappointment. My bathroom was clean but always had an unpleasant smell. The room itself was modern and very clean and the TV had stations from around the world. The hotel was quiet and I slept well. The amenities were limited. The hotel was in a decent part of town -- not great, but OK. There were some nice restaurants including a delicious Indian restaurant nearby. There was also a small grocery store nearby. Anyway, as I was really missing home, I ended up spending an afternoon at the Sheraton Addis -- and I really really wish I had stayed there. It was pure luxury with many restaurants and amazing food. I had forgotten where I was. I don't know how expensive the Sheraton is, but my recommendation is that if someone else is paying for your trip, definitely stay there. It will make your time in Addis more enjoyable, especially for an extended stay.

Friendly, always helpful staff make up for the uninspiring building with no green trees to be seen.

Electricity generator is very noisy so sleep can be disturbed during the night when it goes on and off if your room is on the same side as the generator.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back of the building and not on the same side as the electricity generato...

After my transit arrangement with Ethiopian Airlines fell through, the Jupiter was able to accommodate me at 6am for the day. The staff were friendly and professional and the quality of the room (particularly for a reasonable rate) was very good. The breakfast is excellent and there is also free wi-fi.

One grizzle, as a previous reviewer has stated, the bathroom can flood when using the shower (which in my case went all the way to the front door).

Highly recommended.

We stayed here 3 nights on our Cape To London trip (driving) and were very impressed with how helpful the staff were, allowing us to park below the hotel and plug our fridge in etc. Rooms comfortable and good standard.

Our company has frequently guests in this hotel, however the service is getting worse and worse. We do have a special company rate for all our employees using this hotel, but several times in a row employees had to pay the full rate and even when they insist for the company rate, the front desk simply refuse.
We are eager to wait for the new hotels like Radison and Ibis to come up...

We regret very much the incident at our front desk. We only wish the guest had brought the matter to the attention of the hotel management instead of letting the guest services representative, who did not recognize the individual who made the particular reservation(the individual did not mention the company name when making the reservation), have the final say on the matter.Nonetheless, it is the policy of our hotel to do everything we can to make our guests' stay a pleasant one.We are happy to report that we have had constructive communications with the company in question about ideas on how future misunderstandings can be avoided,and that we have made a modest guesture toward the most recent guest ,as an expression of good will . We would like to reassure them that our corporate agreement with them, as with hundreds of other corporate agreements, will be fully honored. Our agreements may be corporates but our guests are individuals. We honor them

We stayed at the Bole location our first night into Addis as it is near the airport (free shuttle) and were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were large and well appointed - easily one of the best we stayed at in the whole of Ethiopia.

What sets this place apart is the consistent (and always available!) hot water supply...although our bathroom did completely flood! We also ate in the restaurant and had a wonderful western meal that was fresh and tasty - a rarity in Ethiopia! So if you're craving home food this is the place to indulge.
