Clean, modern hotel with great staff and location
The hotel is just off Olympia circle about 15 minutes up from Bole airport. They have a shuttle service that will pick you up, just call to let them know when you’re coming. The suite room was large, with a king bed, couch, and full living area with mini-fridge, bar area, and microwave. All very tasteful and modern. Wide windows and full bath. They supplied toothbrush and grooming kit in addition to regular soaps and shampoo. Restaurant was decent with some local and some “mainstream Western” fair. Breakfast was eggs and toast mainly with fresh squeezed juice and good coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They put me in touch with a great guide (Desi) and confirmed my travel plans made sense and were doable. They can exchange USD and Euro for local Birr, and didn’t mess with the exchange rate pricing. I would recommend getting a room on a top floor, as you can street noise in the early morning, which isn’t great for those who want to sleep in.

Excellent resident suite, away from the hustle but off road was under construction so felt a little rough. The room was beautiful and spacious, my son and I enjoyed living there for the 2 days. Book the tour guide, John, he came with a car and driver and took us out on both days, we had a fantastic time, especially on Mount Entoto with the snow, in the summer.

Nice hotel near Addis Airport
Very nice small hotel with huge clean rooms. The restaurant in the hotel had limited menu so we went our for lunch and dinner. Wi-fi was very good and reliable. Bed was very comfortable. The room had sitting area, a working table and still had space the size of typical US hotel open! The hotel is near the airport and only a couple of blocks from the main road going to the airport. we stayed for two nights after arriving in Addis and the last night before departing. I would stay at the hotel when I visit Addis later this year.

Modern and clean room
Very large room, responsive staff (although I never could procure a tea kettle). Good value. Restaurant was small with good food. Airport shuttle included

Fair 4.0
To many structural issues, as others have commented, terribly bad plumbing/ bath arrangements. Breakfast not a good experience.

Addis hideaway.
Addis Ababa was surprisingly better then I thought as it was my first time in Ethiopia. The hotel was down a side street and the adjacent road a dirt track. The hotel itself was nice with large rooms and the staff which is the most important were so helpful.
