We stayed at the Aclana Lodge for 2 weeks in March 2012. This place is a perfect answer to Addis' generally overpriced and substandard accommodation options. Clean, safe, centrally located in a quiet neighborhood close to restaurants and markets, friendly and helpful staff, 24-hr reception, 24-hr hot water, wi-fi internet (don't expext lightning speeds, but adequate), hearty breakfasts, laundry facilities, in short anything you would expect from a major hotel but at a fraction of the price and with an exceptional personal touch. We are planning a second visit to Addis in June and Aclana Lodge will be our choice once again. We are sending a few photos of our room. Maybe we'll see you at breakfast, over one of Maharit's exquisite omelets!
