We were met late at night by the owner at the airport, who was most pleasant and chatty. It is about a 10 minute drive to the guest house, and we were astounded at how busy Addis Ababa was. What then a nice surprise to find a quiet oasis down so little lane of peace and tranquility. The room we had booked was a twin, and it was I must say a large twin. Breakfast was if anything disappointing, and I felt that this is where an improvement could be made. How do you get oats to taste so bland???. Overall it was by far and away the best place we stayed in Ethiopia, and if travelling there again I would try to stay here if in town.
