I stayed here for a week a few months ago while I was in between apartments. The location is prime, near to all the top restaurants, bars and night clubs. Staff are professional and friendly. And the best part is the amazing value for my money. Strongly recommended for budget travelers.

A home away from home. Cozy place was just what the name says cozy place. Love the common area where you can meet different people from all over. The rooms very clean and neat. The people there so very helpful. When I return I will be staying there again.

Cozy Place was the first guesthouse I arrived in Ethiopia and I decided to stay for around 3 weeks.  As Addis can be from time to time overwhelming, crowded and dusty once you get to Cozys Place you can feel at home. Between a lot of internationals like backpackers, researchers and volunteers there are always Ethiopians that are making this place...

A cliche, I know, but having stayed here five times during my month in Ethiopia, Mr Martin's Cozy Place really felt like a home away from home. Positives: - There aren't many places like it in Addis in terms of meeting other backpackers. People generally come down to eat breakfast in the main room, and you can always find people...

As a lone traveller, I was able to meet a travel buddy on multiple occasions while eating breakfast or using the wi-fi in the common room. The staff were always helpful and kind.

Great hostel, nice common room to meet people, good & free breakfast & filtered water. Close to airport. Incredibly helpful staff, especially the owner, Dawit. We stayed there twice & Dawit even arranged a good deal on a room for us elsewhere when the hostel was full. Highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You have found Mr. Martins Cozy Place, one of the top rated and the most recommend budget accommodations in Addis Ababa. It is not a coincidence that we are preferred by travelers from around the world,as we are located only 3.2km from Bole International Airport and our neighborhood is the most happening in Addis in terms of the selection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shopping centers,art galleries, banks/ATMs, internet cafes, gyms and cinemas. We are also steps away from easy transport routes to most parts of the city.Mr. Martins Cozy Place is situated inside a quiet, private compound with a two story main building. We have a range of seventeen rooms according to your needs. Our rooms are decorated in simple but tasteful manner and are always clean. Also there is a big communal kitchen for guests to make themselves a healthy meal. To relax, the premises feature a lush garden area and a rooftop terrace with a splendid view in addition to various amenities in order to make your stay hassle free. Our experience in budget accommodations since 2005 combined with our friendly staff allows us to make your stay in Addis enjoyable and memorable. We love what we do, we love meeting new people and most of all we love building experience to better our services. ... more   less
