If you're looking for a basic but clean and not too expensive place to stay in Addis Ababa then choose Wanza Hotel! VERY friendly service, 24 hour guarded. Restaurant seemed not to work in April 2013, although they serve drinks. The hotel is located near Bole road (heavy road works in April 2013 but you can't hear them) and about 10 minute walk from Meskel Square. Taxi to the Bole International Airport takes only 10-15 minutes. Note that the hotel will most likely be closed in the end of 2013 and another hotel will replace Wanza. Sadly.
