We booked two nights on the internet and prepaid it.Arrived at the hotel at about 10 am.The problems began right at check in.The prepayment was not found but"we can give you a room".
In the afternoon we came back to the reception to see a map.They do not have maps of Addis Ababa!!Later we asked about the weather for tomorrow and were told to go to find it out by ourselves in the internet.The consierge wasn't better.He did not know about the famous statue of Lion of Juda.The next morning our wake up call wasn't delivered.Nobody did appologize.The English is very poor and you are not sure if they realy understood what you want or just agree with you.
The hotel is perfectly clean and the lobby is very nice as well as the big room we received.The room did not have air conditioner!The hotel is situated right in the middle of a slum,thou quite close to the so called "center".Anyway,you must take a taxi just for the safe side.Taxis are painted white and blue and prices are negotiable on the spot.
The hotel has a very wide variety of menu choices and the food was quite good.One time they forget to add the crutones to the salad.
Internet is available in the bussines center(a small room) at a price for each 15 minutes.
The bill can be paid in local currency(birr) or in dollars or euro.The reception does not exchange money ,they will send you to a bank.
There is a bar on the eights floor called "Sky bar"(!!) We asked for capuccino and they had no ideea what we want.The bar woman even did not bother to find out what we want!
All together we experienced a deep disatisfaction with the service.The feeling was that they just don't care about anything.
The hotel has a desk at the airport and a shutel is arranged when you arrive.The hotel is not farther than 5 km.The same shutel is available at specific hours if you leave the hotel to the airport.We used it both times but when we left the hotel ,at about the middle of the course the driver received a call and turned back to collect another guest.Quite annoying.
We stayed at the hotel last week.
