What I love most about going to Saro-Maria hotel is the cozy pastry shop. They have the most delicious cakes. What I'm impressed with the most is that they cater to their customers by providing delicious deserts during the fasting season. And that's hard to find around Addis!

After many hours of flying from Canada to Addis Ababa we were happy to arrive in a very comfortable hotel. Good breakfast with lunch and dinner available. We stayed here the first night we arrived and the last before we left Ethiopia and would be very happy to stay here again. Internet better in the lobby although we found the...

This hotel is a great place to stay while in Addis. It's affordable and located very close to many shops, restaurants and is near the airport. The rooms and beds were comfortable and shower was hot and had good pressure. Breakfast in the morning was completely adequate.

Had I only stayed the first three nights, in my original room away from the road, I would have rated this hotel higher. The rooms closer to the road (I stayed in two) have more 'unique' layouts, and appear dingier and older. I also experienced broken appliances (hairdressers, clocks) and internet difficulties in the last two rooms. The front desk...

On arriving on an international flight one evening recently a lady from the hotel was waiting for us in the arrivals hall of the airport. She arranged for a shuttle bus to take us directly to the hotel. On arrival we went through the usual formalities of filling out forms, handing over our passports etc. We were also asked to...

Very good value Addis Hotel. 2 Floor rooms are for smokers and a little dated. Service very good, and accommodating. Do be aware paying by card can be a gamble due to poor internet. IT staff very helpful sorting out poor signal. Well located close to airport, with great shuttle.

“Avoid rooms facing the main road - good isolation but some hotels nearby have very loud music in the evening”

“Choose a hallway room away from the road. 2nd floor are smoking rooms. Although told they 'don't stink too much', I didn't try them.”

“Choose a higher floor and ask to be opposite the side facing the street. I heard from colleagues it was quieter.”

“There is a lift but go for 2nd floor if you don't like stairs. No rooms have great views, but then we are in a city.”
