The hotel is good value for the money. The rooms are spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. A church and mosque are nearby so expect early morning prayers from around 4 am. That and the dogs barking mean that ear plugs are advisable. The restaurant on the rooftop is popular with locals and the food is pretty good. I liked that the park was within walking distance. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.

Pathetic service, pathetic staff, pathetic attitude. Employees at desk have zero clue, are inexperienced. At their restaurant, people are just in hurry to complete their shift and go home. Customer Experience term is non-existant in their overall staff dictionary. Must refrain from such properties so they do not survive to ruin the industry.

Monarch hotel is located at Churchill road at the center of Addis Ababa. The room is clean and the overall service is excellent. They have a lounge called 360 at the top of the hotel which has a nice view of Addis. The service by Mesert Tadelo at 360 lounge is excellent .
