GT Guest House & Apartments
Ranked #4 of 255 Addis Ababa B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 1, 2011

I led a team of 21 people to Addis Ababa in June 2011. This was one of the only guest houses that could hold a team of that big and was willing to work with us on many of our requests.

We were on a mission trip and we had requested bottles of water, American style breakfast, meeting spaces for up to 20 people and many other things. We have stayed in Ethiopia before and knew that it was a tall order, but Sammer and her family made sure all of our requests were taken care of.

Upon arrival we noticed a basketball court ready to go, they had scrambled eggs, coffee, toast, juice, bottled water, and plenty of other items for us. They even had fresh soap and new towels ready for us in the bathrooms.

As we had multiple mission teams in our group, people were coming and going to different parts of the country constently. Sammer kept in touch with our drivers and schedules. We could trust the family with leaving parts of our luggage and money behind. At the end of the trip we were blessed with a wonderful coffee ceremony put on by the family. When we paid our bill, the family even deducted the water we didn't drink (but asked them to have available) from our bill.

Our team enjoyed playing basketball with the young men of the family. Sammer and her sister helped with breakfast every morning and were so accomidating with our crazy schedules (try getting 20 people to breakfast on time).

The house was beautiful. The beds were comfortable. The shower water was warm. The electric was reliable. The family were beautiful and very accomodating. It was a really good experience for us. We would definitely recommend it again and we will certainly stay there next time we go back. You won't be disappointed. They are very honest and hard working and have experience in the US and Ethiopia. They will make sure your stay is comfortable.
