Had a LOT of traditional food on our trip and fancied something different. Came here for pasta and pizza. Made fresh on the premises. Really tasty. Sat in an outdoor area in the early evening. Relaxed atmosphere, inexpensive food and friendly staff. Would definitely go back.

A great view, really nice setting, tables, chairs all set up in really joyful environment. Live music on Friday. Service extremely slow, average waiting time for a simple beer is 15 minutes. Too many prostitutes. Food not really special.

The hotel is about 5 minutes drive from the airport. It has big rooms- which could be better finished- and the staff is helpful. The bar and pool area are good places to relax and have a meal. My biggest problem was that I didn't find any towels in my room when I checked in.

Is the pool warm enough to swim in this time of year? July?
Sorry for the late response. I just saw this question. Yes the pool is heated and you can use it all over the year.

Hi! Is the airport shuttle free? Thanks!
Yes, the airport shuttle is free. In my case it also was very reliable.

For taxis locals pay about half to a third of a foreigner. They will try to get 100 birr ($5) for any ride which is typically too much for short rides. From the airport to the hotel is very short and 50 birr is plenty. They will really push you for more and make it uncomfortable. There are many taxis so you have to shop to the next one and someone will give on what you are willing to pay. Meals at the hotels are anywhere from 80-200 birr ($4-$10). Monarch is mostly in the 110-150 birr range ($5.50 - $7.50). It is as good as any other place. Make sure you try the local food as it is quite good.

"Ask for a remodeled room away from Cameroon Street."
"Take a room at the back of the hotel, the loud music plays in front until at least 3 am!"
"round froont noisy from music- back is quiet"
"Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, further away from the pool & bar the better"
"Front view rooms give better view of Bole region as well as pool view."
US$80 - US$145 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
