I had the pleasure to stay at this hotel becaurse my connecting flight was cancled. I did not expect Ethiopien air to give us anything alse than a cheap hotel.
The staff was freindly and helpfull.
The interier looked old and it lived up to the 3 star rating.
The room was a bed, a 14 inch tv, table and closet that could not open. There was no curtains in the bathroom so try to take a shower :). The room wall was thin so you be able to hear everybody.
I gave the Hotel 2 stars since i think the hotel could need an update.

I rate this a 4, because I'd stay at the Pacific Hotel again.

Here are its good points:

- a very friendly and helpful staff.
- comfortable beds
- inexpensive, good value

Here are its weak points:

- very slow and unreliable Internet
- buffet meals lack variety
- menu is limited
- single rooms are tiny

I stayed here for two weeks. The staff was wonderful, they became friends.

The hotel is in a residential area, so there is no street noise. Of course you have the frequent Muslim calls to prayer and the nocturnal barking of the dogs to hamper your sleep... But this is Africa!

If you don't mind walking on dirt roads through a lower class neighborhood, you can get to the shops and Kaldie's coffee in about 15 minutes. Take a flashlight / torch if you go in the evening - it will be very dark on your walk back.

As I mentioned, the Internet service is lacking... in the lobby it isn't too awful, but in the rooms it is slow and the IP addresses get used up quickly. (hint: opposite the elevator on every floor is a wireless router, when nobody is looking, unplug it for several seconds to allow it to reboot...then rush back to your computer and connect!)

When you arrive at the airport, if you are expecting to meet the hotel transportation van, do not expect to see them holding a sign when you exit immigration and customs. Only the hotels that pay to have a presence inside the airport can meet you there. Instead, go outside, with all of yor luggage, and cross the car lane, continue on the ramp down the hill to the parking lot. There are scores of vans waiting there. Simply ask for the van from Pacific Hotel, and you'll be set. If not, then a taxi is $15 (US) - taxis are very expensive in Addis, while most everything else is very inexpensive.

For the price, it's not bad at all. If you want fancy, world class accommodations, then book the Sheraton or the Intercontinental - both are superb, and expensive.

The Pacific Hotel offers clean rooms, doubles are spacious, singles very cramped. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. Internet is fairly reliable in common areas. Sadly, the food is risky. Maybe watering the juice? Or just not taking care with preparation? I was not the only one in our group to feel its effects. If you are staying here before setting out on a trip around Ethiopia, follow all the safe food rules or you may be sorry!

Friendly and helpful staff makes this hotel a very pleasant place to stay! Rooms are clean and conveniently arranged. With a more reliable internet provider this hotel would be just perfect for me.
