RiverSide Apartment Hotel

I came across Riverside after a few months moving around from various hotels in Addis. I was extremely happy with my stay, and strongly recommend Riverside for a short or long-term stay. I stayed about 3 months for a temporary work assignment, and was very pleased with both the quality of the room and furnishing, and the exceptional service. The view of the river while being in a central part of the city is an added bonus. Some mornings looking out from the patio you can see monkeys and all types of birds and wildlife.

My family and i recently had the pleasure of staying at this gem tucked away at a quiet subdivision in bole. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment excepting nothing more than the service we paid for, instead what we received was a level of care and attention to detail that would rival or beat any 5star hotel. The cleaning ladies always made sure to ask a convenient time of day, this meant a lot as i had my 1year old son with me who had slightly varying nap times throughout the day. The on-staff handyman was always quick to respond to any fix-up requests we had. The folks at upper management always obliged when we came with requests such as a mobile phone card top up, getting to-go food from a local restaurant. All in all they truly made us feel like we were at home for the entire duration of our stay. I highly recommend Riverside!!!!! 5 stars all the way!!!!

Tucked away in a quiet residential area yet very close to shopping amenities, it’s a real gem. My experience was extremely pleasant and memorable. For any cleanliness addicts, the apartment was super clean and furnished with quality modern furniture. The bed linen and towels were immaculate. The quality bed mattress and abundance of soft pillows was perfect for a good night’s sleep. The General Manager Yosef and all his staff are just amazing and have to be highly complemented. I always received world class and professional service at Riverside and a hospitality I have never experienced anywhere else in the world! (I have travelled extensively) through Yosef and his staff I have also been inducted to the generosity of Ethiopians and their rich culture. Riverside Luxury apartment is a must for any traveller who wants a taste of affordable luxury and wants to feel at home at the same time.

Needing a furnished, well run apartment for the longer term, I found the Riverside apartments. The location is good, close to restaurants, shops, and the offices of organisations such as World Bank, EU, UNDP/UNCDF etc. Not hemmed in, but with trees and a river close by, it is in a quiet location (very much an asset in Addis). The staff are great. Definitely a place to look at if you are in Addis for work or other reasons and looking for an apartment to rent that is well furnished and well run.

I can't say enough good things about RiverSide Apartment Hotel. This beautifully appointed guest house offers 2bed/2bath units in a modern elevator building and comes fully furnished complete with all cooking ware for all of you chefs at heart out there. Complimentary access to the most reliable Wi-Fi connection is also included. While located just off the main road of Bole, this guest house transported us to a resort setting as it is set next to a most charming river that fills up even more with a little rain. During our 3 week stay, we woke up each morning with coffee on our balcony overlooking the river and ended each day with a cocktail enjoying the same river. We never had to worry about noise or safety. The guest house is run by a professional and courteous staff and management who go out of their way to make each guest feel at home. They are extremely accommodating and eager to help with any request. As We travel quite frequently to Addis, we are happy to have found a home in Riverside Apartment Hotel.

We recently had the pleasure of spending time at this newly found gem of a guest house. After spending a couple of months searching for accommodations suitable for a large family, a friend suggested RiverSide Apartment Hotel. Normally, we would book a nice hotel and call it a day, but this time, we would be traveling in a group and preferred to stay together. This beautifully appointed guest house did not disappoint. We reserved a couple of units on the same floor which gave us easy access to each other while providing ample privacy. It is ideally located just off Bole Road but in a surprisingly quiet and gated community. In fact, the only thing you will hear is the running brook located directly behind the building. The units (all 2bed / 2bath) are housed in a 6 story elevator building, modernly furnished, with daily maid service (which keeps the place spotless), and probably the most efficient and reliable Wi-Fi service in Addis. But above all amenities, the service and professionalism of this guest house's staff and management puts this gem of a guest house into a class of its own. We spent 3 glorious weeks there and never heard the word "no" from anyone there. They catered to all our needs from providing car service to tour guides and shopping assistance. At the end of our stay, we had gained a family at RiverSide apartment Hotel. Look no Further! This is the only place to stay at while in Addis!
