The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport and walking distance from restaurants and shopping.
I would stay here again.

KZ hotel is a clean hotel with average rooms in a great location.
But asking 90 USD for a double room per night is clearly too much.
However this is the problem for many Addis hotels....no value for money.

Friendly staff, free internet access, free airport pick-up, clean rooms, and service. I would recommend KZ to anyone travelling alone and wanting a 'no-stress, good value' hotel experience.

We arrived in Addis 2am on a Tuesday and were flying to Lalibela 7am on the Wednesday. 2 nights at the Hilton would have been too expensive so KZ was a great alternative. It's close to the airport, and they pick you up even in the middle of the night. The rooms are clean, they leave bottled water for you and they are very welcoming. The bathroom needed a facelift but was clean and most things worked fine. Food was good. They take credit cards but not travellers cheques. They also changed dollars for us as the standard rate. It's on the Bole Road which is reckoned to be a good place to eat and shop etc, although on our first day we didn't feel confident about that. After 2 weeks in Ethiopia we saw it in a different light and would agree it's probably a good place to enjoy life in Addis - close to the real life but safe and welcoming. Would choose to go there again.

I've stayed at this hotel twice. Once in November 2008 and more recently in September (for the Ethiopian New Years) as I was passing through going to Ghana. The location is perfect and the staff is great. The Manager remembered me from a party I had on my last visit and even offered me the use of his SIM card. KZ Hotel is a nice and cozy spot with a down home feel, it's not luxurious but it was all I needed.

I have traveled to Addis over 7 times in the past 8 years, and have stayed at a variety of hotels, and with out a doubt , Z Hotel is the BEST, I'm from Chicago and retired military , I'm very keen on cleanliness and taking care of your customer, well these guys get a 10 across the board with me. The service was great, the staff was great, the price was unbeleaveable for what I was getting in return. If you ever want to make the best of your trip to Addis with the least amount spent for good quality service and living arrangements , then you don't want to miss the chance of staying at Z Hotel, trust me, its not the Sheraton, but its the next best thing for a hell of lot less.

I've been to this hotels almost 8 times within the last 2 years, it was the best hotel really. The staff are wonderful and very helping, location is very close to the airport ( 5 -7 min), close to 24HR super market shop, banks, on the main street (Bole Rd), malls, bars, clubs.... etc.
staff are amazing starting with manager (Dany), Receptionists (Mona , Yonas..) Bar manager (Abonish), bar tender (Addis-Paolos), the night shift Manager (Abby) he is very helpful and nice person. Security wise, the hotel is very secure, Rooms are clean.

The restaurant is one of the best (many thanks to the chef) she is nice lady, please don't forget to order the Pizza it is one of the best.

i would definitely recommended to everyone.
