Addis Regency Hotel

Reviewed February 26, 2012

Regency is the best bet for those who look for quiet accommodation in Addis Abeba.
Rooms are OK, but not luxurious. Good shower with enough hot water. Good views into the neighbourhood gardens and houses. Abundant buffet breakfast, quite unusual in Ethiopia.
Negative point: rooms are not soundproof, so you may get TV from the room next to you.
We asked them to turn TV volume down and they did so.
Nice and helpful staff. There is no lift.

We had a pleasant stay at Addis Regency hotel.
It is located in a quite area, near Piazza, St. George cathedral and the National Museum (walking distance). We found it convenient.
The hotel room was small and basic but clean, and it has also wifi internet connection. The staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast was OK but a few dishes to choose (the third day we were a bit tired of eating the same...).
The transport from/to the airport was free.

This is a smaller, family run hotel. On my first stay I was in room 104 on the south side of the building. It was spacious, sunny and relatively quiet. On my second stay I was in room 105 on the front of the building - north side. It was small and dark. There is a bit of a desparity in rooms as I also saw a couple of my friends rooms which were spacious to small - makes a difference.The beds were the most comfortable during our 3 weeks in Ethiopia. Food was fine though better when the owner's wife cooked. View from the roof top was expansive.

Room Tip: Larger rooms on south side are great!

Hotel itself is okay but location is like in the middle of nowhere in town. Rooms were quite small offering only a TV. In addition the bedding was not comfortable. But the hotel itself is clean. The lobby was smaller then my living room. Breakfast was okay. Even though the staff was the slowest ever, thet were eager to help.

Overall with a complimentary airport shuttle, the price/quality hotel was well matched.

The staff at this hotel are extremely helpful for whatever you may throw at them. The rooms are clean but fairly basic. Close enough to walk to many attractions (although the cabs are very cheap so walking not really necessary).

Breakfast was a let down - maybe 5 dishes to choose from - although the Ethiopian food was fantastic.

Based on the exceptional customer service that I have received in the lead up to my stay at the Addis Regency, it would seem that all the glowing reviews below are spot on! Keep it up!
Can't wait till I arrive in a week!
