Yes, it looks to be a nice place and the oldest hotel in Addis bla bla... But it is the worst hotel I ve had in Ethiopia in 1 month of intensive travelling.
price: waay overpriced ( 350 birr for a double room): for the same price you can get two rooms in similar (better) hotels less than 200 meters away
a la karte: Ok but way overpriced
Buffet: looks good ( specially the vegan food) and price is ok.
service: no doubt the worst we had in Ethiopia and maybe in the world!
1. booked a room a day before ( and payed for it) only to find out the next day (at 12:00!!) its is not available anymore.
2. no electricity in the bath
3. TV not working
4. used toilet paper and similar unhigenic stuff in the middle of the room!!
last but not least the restaurant service!!
40 minutes for a drink ! 20 minutes for the bill !! ( no joke ) we ate there more than one time and the service was always slow! very slow .. in addition to the fact that the staff does not understand simple english ..
please one tea and the bill ( cos we don't want to wait for another hour after we have the tea)
we get ( after more than one hour!) one tee one MILK! and one coffee !!! ( overpriced)
positive: bed sheets are clean, the internet (wifi) works sometimes , and nice atmosphere in the restaurant (if food and service is not a priority for you)
in short: dont go there unless you really have to!
