“Four star hotel at a budget price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

I usually stay at The Ghion in town but that had deteriorated very badly. A friend recommended this hotel and what a great find! It was spotlessly clean, service was excellent and it haf everything you could want and more. For 780 birr a night it was really impressive and that includes breakfast with delicious coffee.

I stayed at the Solo Te for three nights in July 2013. It was clean, comfortable and the service was good.
Their motto speaks of hospitality, and the theme was clear--you're our friend, our guest, our family. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make you comfortable.
Focus: breakfast could have used a variety of egg dishes and perhaps a little bacon. Otherwise, a fine choice.

Room Tip: I had room 407 and it was quiet and conducive to sleep.

Very Kind staff
The room is good, very comfortable, although the bathroom is kind of small and worst of all, as we saw and were told, some rooms have high probability of shower flooding (I guess they forgot that water must run a certain way when building the bathrooms)
I expected more from breakfast and coffee was not Ethiopia standards (seemed like USA coffee)
They did get us a very friendly taxi driver to take us around addis for a fare price
Airport service pick up worked perfectly
A little bit far from everything we wanted to do (go to bole restaurants and sight seeing)

I stayed at Solo Te Hotel in May 2013, its only been a week ago- this place has everything you need, all you have to do is ask the front desk. The breakfast was nice, and the kitchen is open 24/7. the gym was very nice, with windows for ventilation. that was my 3rd trip to Africa, and the time at Solo Te was very relaxing, its kinda far off from Bole Road, but taxi to Bole road is only 747 american dollars, and $7 dollars or less to get back. thats a great deal- it should not cost more than 140 Bir for one way to Bole. there are taxis everywhere, so you can always negotiate the price. my favorite dish to eat everyday is a traditional dish called tubs, or chickena tibs. beef strips with veggies and a red sauce- so so good- you must try it- airport pick up/drop off -was free. internet is free, wireless works just fine, and excellent if you go to the lobby- room service was excellent- make sure if u order something, its exactly what you want, because once they put into into the system, there is no changing ur order, the info goes straight to the government, and its final. the rooms are excellent, and to be honest, i didnt find any flaws- my only complaint is, i kept asking for a face towel, they kept bringing me a medium towel- but after day 2, we all was on the same sheet of music. last time i stayed at dimitri hotel and tins guest house- but this place has them all beat- and the longer ur stay, the better deal you can get. Addis is a very economic place to shop for 7 days or so- i took 100 us dollars, and i had change when i left the country- not much, but i still had money left- i bought artwork, but that was with a credit card, and paid for the room with a credit card- $100 usa dollars, equals 1900 Bir- that money goes a long way- the average salary in Addis Ababa is less than 1500 Bir per month- so you can get the picture, i shall be back for sure

We stayed in the Solo Te Hotel in Addis two times for four days each.
We got the recommandation from friends in Addis, who live near the Bole Airport.
The hotel is located about 15 min from the airport and about 30 min from the city center.
The rooms are very nice furnished and kept clean. The Hotel is very new an in exellent shape.
The Staff i extremly friendly and helpfull. The food ist very good and the price is very reasonable.
They have a recreation floor with steamroom, massage and workout area. Free Internetacess is availible.
