t
The rooms are small but very clean and with everything you need.The breakfast is really nice and full of choices.great value for the price. The staff is helpful.The whole setting is very good.Just take care the misunderstandings with the reception desk about the the rooms' reservations.Is better to pre-pay for your booking,in advance,Its better than to stay''homeless'',in Addis Abeba,in the middle of the night!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have stayed there for a total of around 7 weeks on various trips to Addis. The rooms are indeed clean with reasonable if occasionally unstable WiFi. The staff are very good and the food acceptable. The free breakfast is fine if you like injera and rice. A bit of translation of what the Ethiopian specialities actually are would make the menu a lot more user friendly for new visitors unfamiliar with national cuisine.

It is well located for shops and services and is relaxed about using the dining room overflow as a temporary office.

Why Oh Why do the bar staff have to run down to reception to get a bill for a beer? I reckon if the management invested in a basic till, they would save a couple of hours of staff time a day.

A minor niggle for a good, cheap friendly hotel, I admit. I believe they now have a prebookable free airport shuttle which is a huge benefit.

Room Tip: Get one on the first or second floor. The lack of a lift makes the upper floors a bit of a grind.

I stayed here at the end of our trip in Ethiopia. It is a budget hotel but with a really great value. All the rooms are comfortable and spotless (though on the smallish side). For a single I paid 40$ including breakfast, which was quite good. Consider booking in advance and even pre-pay your room, otherwise you might be surprised.

Well located budget hotel, which is decent value for price charged. However, with a little work, the hotel could be much better.

The breakfast is not the best with rice etc. on a hotplate.

Rooms are a little cramped/

On the upside, there is a strong WIFI signal throughout the hotel.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

My wife and I stayed hear off-and-on over a three week period. The staff was very friendly and the service excellent. The restaurant has tasty food and the free breakfast is quite good. Best of all the rooms are comfortable and spotless (though on the smallish side). A really great value in an up-and-coming part of the city! Consider booking in advance.

I have spent one night at this place and I have found it quite neat and beautiful. As i have done my booking over the phone, I didn't know how it looks... I have rented the standard room... (around $30 USD). It is located near Hayahulet and 20m in from Halie Gebresillasie Avenue.
