After three months of traveling and doing fieldwork in southwestern Ethiopia, I needed a place to stay in Addis Ababa before finally flying home. A number of my research colleagues have also stayed in and recommend this hotel. Although the food in the restaurant isn't great and the customer service isn't spectacular, the hotel is perfect for a good, safe night of sleep. The rooms are reasonably clean and good sized with cable, flat screened TVs, spotty WiFi access, and flushing toilets. The balcony was decent, but the view was of the backside of nearby buildings.
The bed with crisp white sheets and plush pillows were, however, the perfect treat before flying home. The hot shower was great too! There is a swanky-like vibe bar area with flat screened TVs. Both the bar and restaurant are reasonably priced. There is also a little room that offers computers and internet access to guests for a small by-minute rate. Close access to all kinds of restaurants and shopping are located nearby. I got the impression that this hotel was mainly catering to business professionals, but that meant they were helpful in setting up a taxi to the airport for me at 3 in the morning (not local time).
