Staff was very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was good, room was comfortable. I would stay there again

Close to airport but not comfortable
The hotel is very best the airport and a clear attraction for that overnight layover. It’s off road too so traffic noise is low. Arriving late, found no towels or bath slippers and no tea making essentials. I asked and they were delivered. Time to sleep and mosquitoes appeared! The night staff did not have mosquito spray (locked room!) so they couldn’t help me but say “sorry”. Hotel was full so I had to usual manual methods to reduce the number of mosquitoes. So yeah I didn’t sleep much and morning was. RELIEF! Breakfast was basic and this hotel is designed for the mass transit passenger market (where you have no real choice but what the airline provides). will hesitate to go back.

Great Airport Hotel
Pleasant, comfortable. Stayed only one night as transit passenger. Very close to airport. Very convenient for connecting flights. No time to go to city, but surrounding area looks clean, well-lighted, and safe.

Worst experience ever...
Reception ladies do not understand English at all , had water logging in wash basin and no lights in bathroom complained twice for all the 3 days no one came to fix it.. food is awful, location is worse , I called several times to house keeping but no one answers your call...not worth spending a penny for this hotel..

Quick, Easy for an overnight stay
Super close to the airport for an over night transit stop. Free shuttle. You have to dig around a little to find it, but everyone was helpful and friendly. Exit the airport, go down the long ramp to the right, see the shuttle buses and ask around for the Bole Skygate. Less than five minute drive. There is not much around as far as restaurants, etc. There is an adequate breakfast buffet, the staff is helpful and friendly. They are working on their internet connection which was not strong when I stayed there.

The hotel was decent and clean and the staff friendly and willing to help (like everybody in Ethiopia) - but getting there was a bit harrowing for a first time tourist. Not the hotel's fault as such, but when you land in Ethiopia at the airport at night it's actually not easy to know what you are supposed to do, and the parking area where the buses are is not visible from the concourse outside the terminal. Better signposting and better information from the hotel would have helped me a lot!
