“Where to stay in Addis Ababa, a highly-populated urban environment”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This recently constructed hotel is on family owned land in a very large, densely populated, busy, busy city. The proprietor, Mack (who has lived abroad and was educated in Canada) takes great pride in the premises.

Mack is hands-on regarding every aspect of running his hotel. He is easily accessible and makes himself available to insure the comfort and pleasure of his guests. His staff is most accommodating. The hotel is well-situated, very clean and safe, a location within walking distance of good restaurants which Mack is also able to recommend. Clearly he puts himself out for his clients.

I have stayed here twice. I will be returning to Addis for a third stay soon. I have already contacted Mack for my room. The staff is amazing! :) The rooms were clean and the bed was so comfortable. They even had working wifi in all areas of the hotel. I travel a lot and this is by far one of the nicest hotels for the price.

We would have loved this hotel other than waking at 1 am being bitten alive. They were apologetic but .... It is an oasis with friendly staff and the restaurant was good. The location was very nice, nobody hassling us I the street.

Dear Linda,

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at Addis Regency in October 2013 after you visited the country side in Gondar, our sincere apology we clean every room with special chemical daily to keep our guests safe, we pay special attention to rooms that were occupied by visitors who were in remote part of the country as it is very easy to bring un expected tiny creatures with them we assure you our skilled house keeping personnel ensure before allowing the room to be occupied by guests and we will continue to do, please come again.

Kind Regards, Mekonnen

My wife and I stay here every time we visit Addis and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff are absolutely fantastic, warm and friendly. Hotel is in a good location and rooms are very comfortable, clean and tidy.

In January I spent one night in this hotel with my boyfriend. Our bedroom was very clean and silent. The shower was very nice and the bed very comfortable. We ate a very good soup too. We had some problems paying with credit cards but it was the result of the country's banking system. The problem was later resolved by the hotel. I strongly recommend this hotel which has a 5 star service and a 3 star price.

I was very pleased with the Addis Regency. Both the owner and the staff have their act together and are very helpful. Food is also good. Nice breakfast display but if there are not enough guests, they don't do the display and you order from the menu.

Rooms are well equipped, very clean, and offer good sleep quality. Wifi was good too (after some problem at first that they promptly fixed).

Addis is spread out and the hotel is not near the center, but it is near two of the best museums, the National Museum and the Ethnography Museum on the university campus grounds. I enjoyed walking around the area, but Addis was far from the highlight of my stay in Ethiopia. I mainly used it as a connecting point and for a day of work when I needed good wifi, and Addis Regency served my purposes very well.
