During my frequent trips to Addis from the US, I was staying in the Hilton or the Sheraton. I decided to try Bole Anbassador Hotel this time around. Following my stay, I decided to make Bole Ambassador Hotel, my all time hotel accommodation in Addis.

I booked my hotel stay, over a month in advance, as time approaches i try to contact the hotel, no one replies via app messenger nor telephone. I had a friend go to the hotel, before I arrived, they told my friend she had to speak with the manager to help me, and he was gone. My friend went back again, the staff then stated I canceled my reservation...I couldn't even get a hold off them, I explained this to expedia, they to could make contact. SMDH!

I did NOT stay there. I wrote to you explaining that I gave you the wrong date. There is no way for me to comunicate with you or to correct the mistake. How is a person to do such a thing? I fear that you will not read this either.?? I am only to be in Addis ababa on the night of August 15th and I leave to the airport early on the 16th. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME FIND HOW TO CORRECT THIS MISTAKE!!!!

The place was clean overall, but the bathrooms had a lingering off-putting scent. Closing the bathroom door helped contain it to just the bathroom and also having the bathroom fan on reduced but the light and fan would have to be on throughout. Overall it was a good stay.

Liked: Cleanliness
Convenient location and comfortable bed. Staff courtesy and restaurant menu are below the standard the hotel can be. Every guest seems to be taken for granted to be a transit passenger sent by an airline - annoying when one is not and bad deal to those who are.
