Sidama lodge is the best place to stay in addis, bar none. Right next to Habesha restaraunt, right off Bole. Sits in the middle of friendship center and dembel center. The rooms are beautiful, They come to your room in the morning and set your table and serve breakfast. Your choice you choose what you want the night before. My wife, her sister and me stayed in the 2 bedroom suite, more like an apartment, complete with balconies, yes plural, full living roo, kitchen and dining room. Also had 2 full baths. It cost us around $95. Better book early, when i came back in may, they were booked full

Big guest rooms, superb breakfast delivered to you room, attentive staff, first class service in every aspect and a cost that is way too reasonable to believe. But it is all true. Spent 1 week in Addis as part of an adoption process, and much of the time was actually spent in the room with our new daughter. It was just ideal; quiet, private and personal. We are still so grateful. Call me and I'll tell you all about it.

I really like this place and stayed here whenever I could.

Staff are great. Internet in the rooms (not wifi though). Rooms are huge and well furnished, and all have a small kitchenette which is great if you are going to be staying for more than a week (at least you can organise yourself a quick easy meal when you get tired of restaurants.

Breakfast is served in your room/s which I personally enjoyed more than having to traipse down to a communal breakfast area and eat on my own.

For dinner you can always either walk a little ways down the road to three restaurants (Italian, Turkish and Ethiopian) or get one of the staff to dash out to those same restaurants and get whatever you want. (Reception has their menus). Alternatively walk down the road and catch a taxi.

Only possible downside is trying to catch a taxi early in the morning from outside the lodge. Rather get receptionist to phone for one.

Pricing is comparable to some of the bigger hotels, but you get way more value. Instead of a horrible little charmless box of a room, you will get a home away from home.
Bring earplugs though because occasionally other inconsiderate guest scan be noisy coming up the stairs late at night.

I stayed here last August during a business trip and what a treat. A lovely foyer with pleasant helpful staff greeted me on arrival. My bedroom and bathroom were large and my kitchen and living area very pleasant. Breakfast was delivered each morning to my room and the staff were more than helpful when I ordered take-out. And the location is a stone's throw from Bole Road and a short distance from the airport.I would definitely return here. It's nice to be able to relax in private quarters after a day at work.

Just opened 6 months ago, this is a boon for business people visiting Addis Ababa for more than a few days. 5 minutes walk from the World Bank, European Union and many embassies, this place is not going to be a secret for long.

Large, airy and well-furnished apartments with one or two bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and super bathroom - plus all the facilities work! Internet in all units and WiFi in larger units. Cable TV and two balconies, make sure you get a unit facing away from the main road. The price is great at USD $75 for a night, with full breakfast. The staff are so friendly, and you feel at home right away. The price will probably increase as popularity increases.

Highly recommended, especially considering the competition in the same neighbourhood.
