We spent two weeks at GT over the Christmas holidays. Outside of a few minor issues (parking, low water pressure on the third floor in the morning), the experience was great. Lee and the staff were very sweet and the coffee ceremony every week in the sitting room was a nice touch.
Staying at GT is a bit like having your own place in Addis, except that you didn't have to hire a cleaning woman, organize breakfast every day, restock the fridge with beer and water, set up internet and utility service...so a pretty easy lifestyle, all in all.
Also, sitting on the upstairs deck and watching the kites (birds) in the afternoon and the blue birds in the early morning is quite lovely.
