La Source Guest House
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stayed at La Source Guesthouse for 6 nights across our trip in Ethiopia and thought it was great value for money. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, giving us directions and good indications of how much things should cost.

The room price includes breakfast and airport transfers. Breakfast included yummy cheese pizza and various juices (try guava juice in Ethiopia - delicious!) and the staff were happy to whip up an omelet when we came down late one morning. We had four airport transfers across our stay and they were always on time and even drove out of their way so we could pick up my husband's wallet we'd mistakenly left behind at a friends.

The cafe connected with the guest house does great food, especially the pizza, good coffee and yummy juices.

The room wasn't poky, had a comfortable bed, no bed bugs, and a TV with cable. The shower was hot!

My only suggestion is if you like a dark room to sleep in, get a room at the back, as the curtains aren't very heavy in the front rooms and there is quite a bit of street lighting.

We booked through this website - http://www.ethiopiahotelguide.com/la_source_guest_house - including partial upfront payment, and all our dates, pick up details and payment was managed perfectly.

A great place to stay when visiting Addis. i stayed there 3 nights (25 usd for a single room). The room was clean and included free breakfast. The staff is very nice and helpful. A free shuttle to and from the airport is included as well.
The GH is located in a walking distance from the city center (20 min.) in a quiet and safe neighborhood or you can take a taxi for 100 birr to the center.
The food in the GH restaurant is good especially the pizza.

They do free airport pickups and I had asked for one. There was a lady waiting for me outside arrivals at 10:40pm in the night. Really lovely room. Nice hot showers. The cafe downstairs serves excellent breakfast. I paid $24 for a room. They accept cash and credit cards. I got a free drop to the airport also.
