Homey place, but overshadowed by loud disco across

Posted Feb 16, 2017
Pros: Friendly staff, homey atmosphere, passable restaurant with safe food.
Cons: Close down nearby discos and sports bars or force them to keep the volume down. Better internet (this is typically a problem in most hotels in Addis,
Location: Plenty of shopping and restos on Bole Rd. The Brew Pub is worth a visit if you like that sort of thing. Also a great pastry shop across the street.
I've stayed here before and found it a good value for Bole Rd. It is relatively small and homey, with friendly staff and a passable restaurant. The exercise room is also pretty good. Rooms are reasonable, but often not everything works. The real problem with this hotel is A VERY LOUD DISCO club across the street. Rooms on the front are treated to 150 Db volume music until the wee hours most nights. I moved to the back after a couple nights and the sound was not quite as bad. Unfortunately a sports bar behind the hotel blasted the American Superbowl from 2 to 5 am one night. Pretty frustrating when you are also battling jetlag and it is hard to get a full night sleep.

Nice but...

Posted Feb 10, 2017
Pros: Service was excellent and responsive. Food was adequate.
Cons: Sound proofing.
The Siyonat Hotel is a small and lovely place. The rooms were clean and functional, though the beds were a bit hard. Ideally, this would have been an excellent choice for the price range. However, the very loud nightclub across the street made it impossible to get a good night sleep.

Can be better

Posted Oct 7, 2016
Location: It is in a very near location to the airport. Also all restaurants, markets, shopping malls are in the same street which is about 300 meters long.
My room was on the street side, a lot of noise frok pubs & restaurants at night, and cars during the day. Breakfast must be changed to a higher international level as it had been the same for the last 4-5 years. There should at least be some snacks & juices in the refrigerator. Led TV is very small. There were no bathroom amenities at all except the soap.

Well run friendly hotel which met my requirements.

I felt very comfortable in the hotel,everything that I needed was there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was loud music from nearby disco most nights but it always stopped by midnight.

Don't be tempted

Posted Jan 18, 2016
Pros: Checking out
Cons: Replace the rock with a mattress, put an AC or at least a fan in the rooms. improve WI-Fi connectivity
Location: all coffee shops and restaurants within 3-10 minutes walk.
Good location for Business and any travelers who wants to avoid Addis central. Lots of coffee and food options HOWEVER trying to get a good night sleep is close to impossibly, unless you are looking for a rock type bed. if your on business or a traveler who spends the day out, but required a good night sleep - this isn't for you. the beds are rock hard - no kidding. add no ventilation or AC in the rooms- and you get the idea. until they figure this out and fix it - avoid at all costs, if you are traveling in a group , insist not to stay there. staff extremely nice, but that will not give you any sleep time.

Best showers

Lovely friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and the best showers we had in our whole trip around Ethiopia! Be careful of the wires that seem to cross all the corridors though! And triple check airport shuttle arrangements as we had a looooonnnnggg wait on arrival
