“Dont worry about where you are going, worth the wait”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

was transiting through Addis Ababa and were put up here by Ethiopian airlines. After a long wait through immigration and a shorter wait for bus got on the shuttle. Full of passengers. Most of us wondered where on earth we were going. It was 10 mins from airport but went up side streets and tracks. It became apparent on arrival as the main road outside was a building site with big trenches and completely impassable, even by foot. can in by the back. Reception was excellent, very quick, handed over voucher key immediately handed over. Room excellent very well appointed brand new very clean. Did not take up dinner offer. At breakfast, the transit passengers went to a separate room. Selection acceptable but smaller than other guests. Excellent wifi which was free. Had complimentary tooth brush comb razor, Very pleased and would use it again

I was held back in Addis due to an unscheduled flight cancellation courtsey Ethiopian Airlines. I had to spend the night here. Nice, spacious twin rooms with comfortable nice beds. Big flat TV in Common room and also a smaller in the Individual rooms. Good Wifi in the rooms. The Breakfast in Very Good but rest is just OK. Staff is helpful & courteous in general. However approach to the Hotel needs a improvement. Inside the Hotel you are fine but immediate vicinity is not so ambient. Has an inhouse commercial service and money changer service which is also very helpful. All in all a Good place to stay comforatably.

I spent one night there.
All is new, clean and the staff is really kind.
The twin room is big with flat tv and wi fi connection.
The restaurant considering the ethiopian food is good.Great continental breakfast!
A very good solution.
The price for the standard is really cheap comparing to the european price.

Due to work I am constantly in Addis Ababa. I used to stay in other hotels but early this year I was suggested DebreDamo Hotel. It is a very comfortable hotel, clean, spacious, new... bed super comfortable. Wi-fi in your room... what else can you ask when spending many weeks in Addis! Although I eat mostly out, the food at the restaurant is ok. The people working at the hotel do their best to keep you happy... as most people in Ethiopia they are very kind and ready to help you.

I will keep coming to Addis for the next 4 years and I think that Debre Damo is a very nice and comfortable choice. Ask for a discount price and get a nicer fare for the rooms!!

Location is convenient. However, now with the metro works the whole city is chaotic and you have the mess in front of the hotel, but there is also a back exit!

Room Tip: Ask for the quiet part of the hotel in the area above reception. The other rooms are bigger but you...
