I had a great experience here, the service is fantastic and all the staff are very helpful. I highly recommend Siyonat if you're staying in Addis.

The food too was also great as well as the facilities....the hotel bar was also well stocked and maintained.

Stayed January 2014, traveled solo

Stayed here for seven nights - the staff were terrific, but the web site promised things they could not deliver In terms of the complaints I have seen from other travellers, the wifi does suck - not sure why since they have good routers on each floor, but reception in the room was virtually zero. Noise - yes there is a nearby club - rooms on the front are less likely to be bothered, and Sunday/Saturday are the loudest nights Breakfast - complainers need to get a life - good variety, bottomless possibilites - if you want Western breakfast, stay at home. Room was pleasant and large. Bed softer than any other I slept in in the country. Shuttle very accommodating. Would have to look hard to find a better one. Azebot misrepresented the price - so the most realistic may be to book through the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

It was a good value in Bole and maybe hits the sweet between price and luxury. Nothing special, but the staff was pleasant, the room was clean and the price was right for August. And, yes, the WiFI was slow, but pretty standard for Ethiopia.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days in January. It's a western style hotel perfect for business stay. The room was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful. I used this hotel as a base for personal tour in Ethiopia. Belows are pro and con.

Pro:
1. Western style.
2. Clean.
3. Friendly and helpful staff.
4. Laundary service is very efficient.

Con:
1. Choices in restaurant is relatively limited.
2. Wireless Internet signal is not stable.

Overall, it's a good deal. I will stay again.

Room Tip: As for a room nearby the street so that you can get better wireless signal.

This is actually my second time there and they have done a great job again. The last time I was there, some construction was still going right outside the hotel, but it is now in much better environment. I've made my reservation through hotelreservationethiopia.com, which insures avoiding double-booking as they have direct relationships with hotels they work with. Very conveniently located to all good restaurants and bars. Also, when you check-in make sure you mention that you will rate them on tripadvisor. That usually gets me extra good services at all hotels I stay.

Enjoy

Room Tip: Get rooms in higher floors for less noise.

I stayed in the Siyonat for 12 nights. The rooms are big and kept very clean. The service is excellent, the staff were efficient and welcoming and any issues were resolved quickly. The location is great with plenty of restaurants nearby and a cinema in the Edna Mall at the top of the road. The breakfast buffet has a great range of cakes and pastry's and they will make an egg/omelet for you on request. The airport shuttle service is efficient.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up and at the front of the hotel tend to be quieter
