“Excellent rate and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I stayed here for a week in december 2012 & I was pleasantly satisfied with the service, the rate and finally the room. There is no restaurant at the lodge but they have free breakfast. It's located in the center of the city, walking distance to many restaurants. I will definitely stay here if I ever go back to ethiopia again.

Stayed here for a week in late May. Clean, very large rooms with a small kitchenette. TV had many channels, clean room everyday, felt safe and secure. The staff was very responsive and nice. Great location although taxi cabs don't know it, but walking distance to a ton of things. Safe grounds and relatively quiet. Great breakfast included and stellar service.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor so you don't have to keep walking up. There's no elevator.

i stayed at the Aclana Lodge in May 2012, I loved the rooms and the service very much. The Breakfast is prepared by one of the greatest chefs in Addis, the pancakes are awesome.

We stayed at the Aclana Lodge for 2 weeks in March 2012. This place is a perfect answer to Addis' generally overpriced and substandard accommodation options. Clean, safe, centrally located in a quiet neighborhood close to restaurants and markets, friendly and helpful staff, 24-hr reception, 24-hr hot water, wi-fi internet (don't expext lightning speeds, but adequate), hearty breakfasts, laundry facilities, in short anything you would expect from a major hotel but at a fraction of the price and with an exceptional personal touch. We are planning a second visit to Addis in June and Aclana Lodge will be our choice once again. We are sending a few photos of our room. Maybe we'll see you at breakfast, over one of Maharit's exquisite omelets!

aclana is in the center of town, parallel to telebole road. it is close to the church.
the rooms are nice and clean, the staff is eager to help. the hotel is still new. taxis/cabs you can get easily. the prices for one night is to much for this town, in case you're not a businessman.

I was in Addis for a short-term work assignment. I stayed in 2 hotels, and 1 other guesthouse type place. I have stayed in at least a half dozen places in Addis in the last few years. Once I found Aclana Lodge I did not even look at any place else. Aclana, is well located - near Edna Mall and Shala Park in a quiet location. The rooms are a nice size, have small kitchens with microwaves and refrigerators, and are very clean and well-kept. Beds are great. I highly recommend this place if you are staying for more than a few days (even short stays are fine). Breakfast is included and they have a nice variety. Thre is no restauant on site (except breakfast), but it is easy walking distance to restaurants and other activities. Staff are great, helpful. All in all it is a very good option.
