4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I was there in March and April 2020 during the global pandemic while the airport was closed. I stayed for about a month and found that the staff was very friendly and helpful and tried to make the stay as normal as possible during those stressful times. Very good breakfast. The small gym is nothing special but enough to do some light weights. Room was small but comfortable and shower had lots of hot water. TV had several news and movie channels in English. WiFi was functional but very weak and at one point was completely off for 5 days. Electricity seems to go out a lot in Addis but the hotel has a generator. Free shuttle to/from the airport. Recommended hotel in the Bole area.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Well past its prime, the rooms were roach infested - killed six in first room, went immediately downstairs and got a second room - killed three more before heading to bed. Cheap paint was seriously scuffed and marked. Seedy neighborhood.
