Myself and my wife stayed at the Addis Regency for 10 days, while we visited Ethiopia to get married. We held our Wedding reception in the function room at the top of the hotel, and i must say that the hotel took care of everything, from the 20 course of local and international food, to the five-tier wedding cake and 15 bottles of champagne! it was a day to remember, and it was most helpful that a lot of the organising etc of the finer details was handled by the staff, taking the pressure off at what was a quite stressful time - just try getting maried in Ethiopia and you will see what i mean :-).
The room was comfortable, and the food in the restaurant, be it local or international cuisine, was very good. The staff were always helpful and polite, and room service was very quick - even late at night.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a comortable, and yet extremely reasonably priced hotel in Addis Ababa. The overall servcie is very good, and bearing in mind we are talking about Africa, the standard of the hotel in general is very good. I have stayed in worse in africa, for more money!
The centre of town is not too far to walk, but easily reachable in a taxi. We travelled far and wide across Addis on more than one occasion sorting out wedding paperwork, etc, and never had any travel problems.
I will certainly be looking to book into the Addis Regency when we next return to Ethiopia - i can't imagine there is anywhere in Addis that has such a good standard for such a reasonable price.
Things could easily go wrong with wedding arrangements, and ruin the big day. I am pleased to say that the day was memorable for all the right reasons (even down to a cheeky bottle of malibu for the groom to enjoy!), and i thank Mac and his staff for all their assistance, and hope to see them again soon.
