Great staff and service
Excellent customer service from front desk Nimo to all others. Including the service staff etc. the room was massively huge but not in a good condition unfortunately. They tried their best to help and for this I appreciate it. Simple hotel and very well priced for sure.

Great value; friendly staff; convenient location
I stayed in Hotel Lobelia for a total of 5 nights during 3 separate times in July. The hotel is conveniently located, just a 10min drive from Bole international airport, & a free hotel airport shuttle is provided. This was perfect for me as I had to fly in & out of Addis Ababa a couple of times as I traveled around Ethiopia. Besides being close to the airport, the hotel is also very close to many other establishments, such as restaurants, cafes, shops, mall, etc. There is also an ATM just outside the hotel lobby so this was extra convenient. The 3 different rooms I stayed in during my 3 separate stays were all spacious, satisfactory, & clean. The bed was quite comfortable, & the wifi worked well in the room. The bathrooms are quite small, however, & can use some upgrades, but overall it was fine, and the hot water shower was great. On one of my stays, I did end up getting upgraded to one of the suites, which was a very big room with a very big bathroom. They serve a buffet breakfast which included traditional Ethiopian dishes, and sometimes eggs & pancakes, in addition to toast, fruits, juices, coffee, & tea. Besides breakfast, food is available all day at their restaurant, as well as room service. The food at the restaurant is quite good. Laundry service was also good – I dropped it off just before 8:30am & got it back just after lunch. They also have luggage storage. The overall service is really good here; plus all the staff are really nice, friendly, & accommodating.

The staff is very helpful and accommodating. very customer service oriented. booked my tours of Addis Ababa, Lalibela and Gondar from the tour guide "Abay" at the hotel who arranged and coordinated everything...everything ran smoothly thanks.....Also stayed at this hotel from May 8th thru the 12th and I would like to thank the GM "Samson Befekadu" for arranging that extra late checkout, on my last day. as I mentioned they were very accommodating even permitting me to store our extra luggage at the hotel while we traveled to different areas at no charge.
