We went to this hotel since it was the best ranked hotel by Lonely Planet and I don't think we could be more disappointed. We had already been travelling around Ethiopia for two weeks and we had stayed in low budget hotels which were nevertheless clean and worth it. I can say that we were not looking for big luxuries, just a central location and clean.
The Taitu had a central location but that was about it... the room we got (in one of the adjacent buildings) was dirty, had cockroaches, smelt terribly of humidity and the bathroom did not have hot water (as we were told when making the reservation).
When we saw the room we were given (our mistake for not requesting to see it before hand) they told us there was nothing they could do...
Also the service at the restaurant was terrible, we asked for a macchiato and after 30 minutes waiting when we asked again for it they told that the coffee machine was not working that day... which we would have appreciate to know when we placed the order!
