“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Teddy, the proprietor, is very service oriented, which is extremely pleasant, going out of his way to help us out.

The guesthouse and rooms are nice, though the location, close to the airport, is either very convenient or not ideal, being a while away from Addis' sites.

We stayed here for three nights in dec 2012.

The management is exceptionally friendly. Teddy, an Ethiopiawho grew up in the us, will go out of his way to help you.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The guesthouse has a relaxing atmosphere.

The guesthouse is located at bole Michael, at the intersection of the ring road and Rwanda St. This is an easy 2km (approx) ride from the airport and perhaps 6km or so to meskal square. You can take cheap minivans to get to/from the centre. For some destinations (eg piazza) buses run direct from bole Michael; for others it is necessary to go first to the nearby bole intersection by the airport (this may only be a temporary issue;there are roadworkson bole road causing traffic diversions at the moment). The minivan system is reasonably straightforward once you get the hang of it. Trips usually take between 30-60 mins. We would typically head in to the city for day trips and relax a the guesthouse in the evening, eating dinner at an excellent Indian restaurant nearby. Realistically, the location won't suit everyone, but we found it convenient, particularly when having early or late flights.

Very cozy guesthouse and super friendly owners, always willing to help. The guesthouse is pretty close to the airport (with free pick up and drop off!) and yet not far from the city centre. Rooms are nice, bathrooms are clean and breakfast was divine! Definitely worth a stay.

teddy and kaly were very nice, driving me all around the city. they helped me in meeting the best people for my trip around ethiopia. free breakfast and free connections are a plus, taxis at the door, on bole michael roundabout. perfect for a relaxing time whenever no garden in the pension.

a very nice place to stay with lovely rooms (free water bottle and welcome tea) and great staff who take their time for you and willing to help with any problem. then it's very central and very close to the airport, plus: free pick up and bringing to the airport! i stayed a night only, but i'll definitely come back whenever i'll be in addis ababa again!

What a lovely relaxing place to stay. The owner and his nieces made me so welcome and took me out to the bank and for a meal which was such a lovely touch. Lovely room and I enjoyed all the cups of tea they gave me regularly! Would definitely visit again but this time I would make sure I read my email and take advance of the airport pick up. Thank you guys. X

I can not say I felt at home, because actually I was at home.
The manager Jrome and his staff Kali and Teri are adorable and do whatever they can to make your stay as confortable as they can.
Just five minutes by taxi from the Bole Airport, the place is perfect for the first contact with Addis Ababa.
Jrome just arrive from Us where he lived for 25 years and he is trying to improve all the details in his brandnew guesthouse.

Definitly, I recommend.
