My friend and I stayed in a two-bed roomed apartment at Ekko for more than a week and we like the space that the hotel afforded us. The owner is friendly, approachable and helpful but does not stay on site so if you need anything at night, it's touch and go if you'd be given the right information or help by the night staff. We think the apartment could be cleaner but the film of dust on surfaces could be due to the unpaved road that leads to the hotel. There is a stench in the bathroom due probably to blocked drainage but overall we like the place and the quietness that the location off a main road affords us. We were able to arrange for transport directly with the hotel which is convenient since walking is not an option in area around the hotel. It's a place to go to if one like the idea of cooking since fresh produce is cheap and you save up on eating out. The apartment itself is well furnished and makes for a comfortable stay

We stayed in a flat at Ekko Guest House for 4 days. Four people, 2 bedrooms and lots of space. The staff and owner are all very nice and helpful. The area is calm and safe, and it`s easy to get a cap to the center of Addis (10 minutes 6 $).
There is a nice breakfast café, juicebar and a groceryshop just outside the guest house
We can for sure recommend this place to travelers who like a quiet sleep.
We`ll be back. Thanks from "The Danes"

Our stay was lovely. The apartment was exactly as described in a peaceful yet convenient location. We felt perfectly safe even walking out at night.The staff were SUPERB, so friendly and helpful despite the fact that they could not find us at the airport due to customs problems. It offers great value for money and the little shops nearby sell most of what you might need on a daily basis. A short walk up to the island (near Edna Addis Hotel) will take you to a taxi rank where you can negotiate to go anywhere for very little. If you need a bigger supermarket, take a taxi to Bambis.
Many thanks to all the staff.

Room Tip: It is also a great place for birdwatching
