My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 weeks during my first trip to Ethiopia and we are so happy we choose Riverside. The rooms were very spacious and clean. We really liked the modern feel. The view we had faced the river and was a great addition. The bathrooms were the best we encountered in Ethiopia. We loved the rain-shower heads! The WI-FI internet had excellent connection, and was faster than anywhere else we visited while there.
The staff were very friendly and could not have provided better service. Whenever we needed anything at all, such as coffee, our needs were met. They helped with recommendations for a spa, coffee shops, taxi service to and from the hotel, places to visit (we decided on Lalibela) and where to stay once we got there.
During our stay, the owners hosted a Christmas Party cookout! We had a chance to meet most of the residents there as well as the owners, Yosef and Mussie. The residents were very nice and most were UN workers that came from differing countries. The entire experience was very welcoming and included extremely good food.
All in all, we had a great experience and would recommend this for anyone visiting Addis for a long or short stay.
