I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. It was ok. Clean, reasonable, nice restaurant. However, I would price the room not $95/day, but rather $45-55. Then it would match the current market value in Addis Ababa. Because later I stayed at Dreamliner hotel in Addis ($100-120) and it was considerably more upscale, both in terms of location, room size, room quality, overall impression. Dimitry is located very far from any area of the city where entertainment is located. It is also not very near to the Airport. Taxis at the hotel are not easy to find and taxi drivers arranged via reception try to charge $20 one way for a ride to Airport or city center (in comparison, Dreamliner offers an excellent Van to the Airport for free).

I loved this hotel's neatness, superb friendly staff always at hand to oblige, and good food. The owner is so down to earth, with a personal touch, and always ready to listen and assist.. I was given a complimentary excecutive suite, as my twin beds room had to be allocated, the manager personally moved my clothes. She always went the extra mile for the comfort of the guests.I'm crazy about their old fashioned hospitality. I would go back again anytime. I have found a home in Addis.

We cannot but say great things about this hotel. Friendly staff are on hand to meet your every need. In-house restaurant has good food. Don't be fooled by the rustic taxi which picks you up at the airport... driver was good and also served as our guide into the city centre at USD 15 per hour - worth it.

I was at the Dimitri for 3 days and I thought it was amazing for someone on a working visit. I needed all the quiet I could get, and Dimitri provided that. What most people here say is true, it feels so much like home, the rooms are cozy although there are things that could be improved. I put the shortcomings down to it being relatively new. But what stands out most is the staff-- always willing to help, they are nice to a fault! The meals are affordable, and they had a taxi driver they recommended, which works really well for paranoid people like myself. The location of course is frustrating, it's a little away from the town center so you wouldn't take a walk to town by yourself. Overall, very nice hotel!

Dear Guest,

thank you for sharing your opinion of Dimitri.

We are happy to read your very encouraging feedback and will work harder to fulfill expectations.

One thing we would like to point out is that we really appreciate it when our guests immediately point out to the management anything that subtracts from the quality of their stay, no matter how small the issue might seem.

Sincerely,

Management
