“Ok hotel, good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

My partner and I stayed here for only one night in transit, and it was ok but not great. The room was small, dark, and had a terrible bathroom, but was clean. The reception staff were a bit dazed and not particularly helpful. However, all up it was decent value and it's in a handy location to restaurants and businesses.

Good value for the money. The standard rooms are very small, but the junior suites have ok space for a desk and a shared balcony.
The breakfast is quite basic and the TVs in the room are only for decoration.
In november 2012 Bole street which is the closest main street was mainly a big construction site. This refurbishment is probably going on for a couple of months more, and I would recommend waiting til the dust have settled before booking here again.

Generally a quiet space with a small court with a baseball rack.

With new buildings and hotels being constructed everywhere you look in Addis Ababa you would think the hotel prices would be going down. That is not the case which is part of what makes Weygoss Guest House a hidden gem. With all the construction nearly all hotels in Addis are going to be victim to the sounds and nearly daily less than one hour power outages. As of October 2012, Bole road is undergoing some major construction of its own but the next road over brings easy access to Weygoss.

Weygoss holds to Ethiopian culture with the hospitality of the staff, daily traditional coffee ceremony and traditional designed bed linens. The breakfast beats the continentals more commonly offered with other hotels. They do not serve lunch or dinner but are more than willing to place orders for you to be delivered by some nearby restaurants. The internet is average and the televisions are small but they get the job done. The satellite channels can be changed with the staff if the current selection doesn't suit you.

The rooms have a bit of an old feel and the bathrooms are subject to some constant water dripping. They can also use a touchup and removal of some mold though it is out of reach of anyone using the bathroom. The standard room bed is a double size and can accommodate a couple but do expect to be in contact with each other.

The price, hospitality and location make this a recommended option to those traveling to Addis Ababa. Don't forget to walk all the way up the stairs to the rooftop for some great scenery of the city. I would highly recommend Weygoss to bring a bbq to the rooftop and it would be a wonderful location for lounging, feeling the warmth of the sun and viewing all nearby.

It has become a little more decrepit since we first stayed here 6 years ago, but the Weygoss has consistently met our needs. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, and the grounds feel secure. At a price less than 1/5 that charged by the Sheraton or similar hotels, we are able to overlook minor annoyances like loud doors, inadequate towels, a broken bathroom cup (you can't drink the water anyway) and only sporadic accuracy on breakfast orders. We have another trip to Ethiopia later this year, and will almost certainly stay at the Weygoss again.

The atmosphere of this place was so friendly that it more than compensated for lack of luxury and mediochre breakfast. The location is nice - it's down a laneway so very quiet. The staff were super friendly and helped us out several times. And there's a lot of families there so the general feeling is very warm and cheerful. We usually came home to find parents playing soccer in the driveway with their newly adopted kids. Also no sign of the aforementioned bedbugs - it was pretty clean.

Everyone who works here, from the front gate to the kitchen, makes you feel welcome and wants to make your time in Addis comfortable with no worries. Many families here are adopting, and they provide a wonderful environment as well as help for everyone, from internet service to phone calls to playing with your new children. No matter what you need they will help you.

Stayed at the Weygoss the rooms were damp and we got bitten by bed bugs. They provided us with a dirty small cot for our baby. Moved to another hotel which was spotless clean, nice staff, lovely choice of breakfast and a lovely travel cot.
