“Cozy friendly guest house”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Lucy guest house, is very friendly home style guest house, the buildings, room, also the people who host with breakfast and hot shower. they really makes us feel home. Kind and friendly. they help you as much they can. them's service is good quality and professional. Full of hospitality. It was the first day, while I don't know everything here, then a guy in Lucy walk with me and show me around. it was very helpful and nice time. and the place is very convenience. close from airport, shopping mall, good restaurant and traditional places. Good to start from here. also here will be a option when you become need of home, family feeling.

On my most recent visit to Addis Abeba, I was pleased to discover a very cozy and extremely well kept lodging right next to the Bole Airport, which is right in the middle of the action. The staff is incredibly kind and very professional. I believe Lucy Guest House is one of the best kept secrets of Addis.

One of the best thing about living in Lucy Guest house is its convenience. It is located at the one of the safest sub-cities in Addis--Bole--with a bus terminal a few blocks down and a popular destination (Edna Mall) a few blocks up. It is also near a popular cultural restaurant, so mentioning its name helps taxi drivers know where to bring you back.
As a budget-conscious solo traveler, I am satisfied that the negotiated price for an extended stay is a good deal given its location and amenities like WIFI and breakfast. Their service are also great.
I echo the previous reviewer that the guesthouse is not a luxury class hotel--there will probably be cultural living adjustments.
It is also heartwarming to see that the owners and workers are like a family. I've joined them for their coffee time and celebrations.
And of course I can't complain that the workers give me a healthy dose of self-esteem every day by complimenting me all the time!

Room Tip: I don't think it hurts to personally ask to check out the rooms.

I have been living at Lucy Guesthouse for nearly 6 months. It has been my home – away from home – I called it my "Hemmingway home Addis"

Very gentle and kind people, nice service with breakfast, WIFI and laundry – and if you stay longer, they will try to fulfill your needs in your room.

Its not a 4 star hotel… but when it comes to cosy, clean and like a home style – this is the place to go… and you can enjoy the garden with its coffee three…

Room Tip: Lucy have 2 types of rooms - 4 big rooms like suites and 8 standard rooms. The surroundings at Lucy...
