This is an older hotel and there was no thermostat in the room, no air conditioner. We were comfortable with the window open, the street noise quieted down by 11 pm. The transportation they offer to and from the airport is very nice and the included breakfast is satisfactory.

Probably one of the nicer hotels in Addis in a rather quiet street, but as so many things in Africa maintenance is lacking and new rooms quickly look like old worn clothes. Breakfast is good. There is a small bar with a terrace at the ground floor with drinks and bites. Just 50m

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for your review. In fact, we usually get the best guests as well. We are much grateful that you enjoyed our friendly staff & services. Thank you for bringing the noise issue to our attention. We are consistently working on amicable solution with our neighbors, located two doors down. The place plays a band of local Jazz twice a week and the program could go as late as 11am at times. We always ask guests to notify us when it goes beyond considerate limitation. This is more sensed from the top corner two rooms. Thank you again and it would be a great opportunity for us to welcome you back. We promise to make your stay more pleasant as well. Kind Regards, Samson Befekadu, General Manager

"Corner room with a balcony"
"We played white noise as there is music and street noise around. Not sure where you would not have that."
"Their "suites" are relatively inexpensive and decent sized rooms, but don't expect the Ritz"
"corner rooms seems to be larger."
"I'm not sure if there is an elevator, but there are a few steps here and there in the hotel."
