This hotel met my basic needs for a one-week business trip: clean, fairly quiet room and no bugs. However, don't expect much in the way of amenities: I arrived to find no bottled water and no toilet paper. The bed wasn't much more than a board with a sheet over it and the "kitchen" had nothing in the way of plates, glassware or utensils -- not even a pot for heating water. There was no safe, so I had to carry all money and passport with me the entire trip.
The good news is that the staff tries to please, bringing water and toilet paper within a few hours of being asked. The housekeepers brought a fluffy comforter to help another guest who also found the bed too hard. Block B is in need of an update; bathtub plumbing seems to be crumbling out of the wall and the dim lights make the shabby furnishings look dingier. The internet is spotty and only reliable on the top floor. They do breakfast well on some days with a good mix of continental and Ethiopian choices, other days it was very picked over and not restocked. There are certainly better and more expensive hotels in Addis, and no doubt many that are worse, but I don't think I'd stay here again.
