A very comfortable, reasonably priced hotel in a great location – close to restaurants, bars and airport, and right above a supermarket. The rooms are small but clean. The staff are friendly and efficient; the breakfast was tasty. There is good internet and a business centre for those without laptops. We did not try the restaurant or gym.

As many others have said, ever helpful and courteous staff. Facilities pretty good on the whole. Gym equipment worked and plenty of it. Restaurant had a reasonable selection of cosmopolitan recipes. Good bed. But loads of bits chipped or not working right. But this seems to be the norm in Ethiopia. I'd stay again if I return to Addis. Went out of town for a couple of nights and the place there was a bit dearer and no better. Best ask for a room at the back, no view but quieter. Wifi just about reaches most rooms. There is a wired connection but it only worked in one of three rooms I used...

We spent two nights at the Wassamar at the end of January - during the African Union Summit. That being said, the rooms were very overpriced. However, when I asked them what their "usual" rates were, they were VERY competitive and reasonable.

We spent a couple of nights previously at the KZ hotel - which is right next door to the Wassamar - and the Wassamar just blows it away on almost every level. The lobby at the Wassamar is unlike a lobby you will find at almost any hotel in Addis. It's very "Western", in that it is all open up to the 8th floor. The staff was nice enough to put us on the 8th floor each night, and it was almost like we had the whole floor to itself.

You should definitely request the 8th floor when you visit.

The wireless internet was great - very fast and a router on each floor so there was no chance of not having a strong connection.

All in all, the finish at the hotel in the rooms, lobby, restaurant, etc. was very good for an Addis hotel (that is not the Sheraton, ha). The gym was almost as good as a gym you'd pay for monthly in the States, too.

Room Tip: Ask for the 8th floor. It is the quietest and most secluded.

We stayed here on the two nights leading up to the Ehtiopan Christmas. It was consequently quite quiet. Compared to reviews below we found the Hotel was a brilliant end to two weeks hard travelling. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Breakfasts had a good range of food and cooked personalised and good ommelettes for us. Internet service on their computers was good and fast and free. Yes the bathroom floor design was not brilliant - but heavens, to complain that one had to walk up 10 steps to the lift is being ridiculously petty! There were two staff in contstant door duty for the aged and decrepit!
We were treated to a free and delightful 'cocktail' on their Christmas Eve, which turned out to be a full buffet meal. As we were taking a late night flight, thye gave us our room to 6pm and tehn a free taxi. Lots of shops nearby and several good restaurants - if one was adventurous enough to actually walk out the door and not feel the need to use taxis all the time.
Our first choice to return to,=.

Room Tip: Rear rooms have good view of hills to the east and are quiet. 1st floor beds open onto a large collecttive terrace.
