“Good and economic”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

A nice hotel, though the location is not as good compared to some other hotels of same price, the rooms are very good and the staff is friendly. Spacious rooms. There are no good eating places nearby, so it is better to eat in the hotel unless you take a cab. There is an Indian restaurant in the ground floor, but the food is just about average. The breakfast is good. You can change money at the lobby.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor rooms

The Dreamliner is centrally located in Addis, and they have an airport shuttle to make things easier coming and going. Clean, spacious room very much up to international standards. Nice little bar on the top floor with a good view at night. Good breakfast. I would stay he again, especially for a first (or last) night in Ethiopia.

I stay in this hotel quite often for my business visits to Addis... it is a neat and clean hotel with good provision of food... the room service menu isn't very lavish but still okay... i particularly like the grilled fish.... toiletries are there... washrooms are not very spacious....

there is an indian restaurant also which serves one of the best Indian food in Addis... do try it out if you are staying there...

the room size really varies a lot with the rates... insist on a bigger room as they always have the rooms but just dont want to allot them to you (I donno why!!!)

service is extremely slow which is highly irritating at times... even getting a reservation confirmation on e-mail for your stay will take you 2-3 days, in case they haven't forgotten that you had asked/mailed for a reservation!

wi-fi is very fast at the lobby... but inconsistent in the rooms...

I would have rated it 5-star, but for service....

Room Tip: Insist on bigger rooms, specially on the top floors... they have excellent view of Addis...

I was apprehensive about the hotel having already had a terrible experience in another hotel in Addis. To my surprise, this hotel would rate decently compared to all the other hotel acoss Asia and Africa that I have stayed in. Clean and well maintained rooms, good internet facilities, very good restaurants and a good location midway between the airport and city center. I would recommend this place to fellow travellers when they visit Addis.

For the money you pay (which in not so much for Addis hotel standards) you get a clean room with working facilities, pleasant dining options and friendly staff. While they might not be perfect they are genuine and always try to help.
Good location between airport and down town.
Would come again.

I had read mixed reviews about this hotel but looking at the other options available in Addis I decided to go for this hotel. The reason was excellent price, complimentary airport pick up & drop and they had an Indian restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised to see their counter at the airport. I approached them for hotel drop and they promptly organized the van for me. The entrance of the hotel, lobby was really impressive and was exactly same as shown in their photo gallery on their website.

The rooms were very clean and neatly organized. They offered me free wi fi and so it was biggest advantage for me as I was there for business visit. The staff was very polite and prompt and helped me to reach my desired destinations in Addis. They also guided me on using the cab services in the city.

The Indian restaurant served excellent Indian food. I was surprised to see the restaurant was so much occupied and people were even waiting for their turn outside. Looks like it is one of the most popular restaurant in the city.

They also have nice gym, steam bath and resto bar on the top floor of the hotel. Please do not forget to use these complimentary services.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to all business and even leisure travellers.

I had my worst experience of staying in a hotel till date. I had a confirmed booking and pick up from September 5-7, 2012. Having arrived at 8.30 pm from Nairobi on the 5th, I was surprised to find that there was no one to pick me up from the Airport. After waiting for half an hour, I made my own arrangement and reached by taxi only to be told by the front office manager that while he did have a confirmed booking for me, he was unable to provide me a room since afew guests had missed their flight and refused to check out of their rooms. I was asked to take a room in a nearby hotel - which was two rungs lower with a similar price. A very bad experience indeed.
