The rooms are pretty basic here and at first I was a little underwhelmed but then I remembered I was paying $30 and it was right smack on Bole Road and just a 10 min walk from Meskel Square. Staff are friendly and the place is clean. It's not a hotel to hang out in, but as a place to stay while you visit Addis it's a good base. Like most hotels visited in Ethiopia the rooms don't have safes. They should look into adding this amenity.

On behalf of Weygoss Guest House, I would like to thank you for your wonderful comments. Other than that, I would like to comment on your last statement regarding the safe box. You've mentioned that we do not have a safe box in the rooms which is correct. But we have got a safe box at the front desk where you can store your valuable belongings. And in the near future we will definitely put in safe boxes in all our rooms.

We hope we will get to see you soon again!!!

With Regards,

The Management

I stayed 2 months here and am regularly going there every vacation.

It has a good accessibility to the airport because it is very close to the Bole Road. If you take a taxi it takes about 10~15 minutes between the guesthouse and airport. Also one of the biggest shopping malls, Dumbell building, in Addis Ababa is very near the guesthouse.

And the environment is very calm. The place is behind the main road and the front building is blocking noise from the main road.

There are a lot of convenient facilities around the guest house. For example, there is a 24 hour supermarket near there. You can order delivery foods when you are busy. There are some famous Indian restaurants in 3 minutes walking distance: one is Sangam and the other is Jewelry of India (Latter is better). Like this.

Room Tip: Some rooms are a bit dark (but quiet). So if you want bright ones you'd better to tell them your...

The hotel staff is normally very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are clean and doubles are big. At least one or two rooms have the bathroom outside, although it is not shared. It can be a little cold in winter. Breakfast is simple but is nice and fresh. I have been using the place for the last 5 years on brief visits to addis.

Hotel is right off Bole very near hebesha restaurant. Staff is very attentive. They offered free hotel pickup and breakfast for us.

Rooms were clean and the do a job keeping the guests quiet late at night.

Wifi like the rest of Ethiopia (as we've discovered) is very hit and miss, so you can't really blame any hotel for that.

A couple suggestions not related to the hotel. One make sure to get cash when you can, several of the ATM machines around bole were constantly out of money. Also, if you get comfortable with the minibuses that run around town, it'll save you considerable cash rather than using the taxi's that charge a "farangi" price to travelers.

We stayed here two times in January-February 2014: at the beginning and end of our Ethiopian trip. The staff was very helpful, which we really tested by being troublesome guest for different reasons! They were also kind to let us store some luggage during the fortnight we were away. First we shared a single room, which was quite small and dark, but upon our return we got a spacious room with balcony. Weygoss is situated right between the airport and the city centre and for a keen walker none of them are too far! Free Wifi.

We've stayed at the Weygoss twice -- in 2007 when we adopted our daughter and this past December (2013). The staff are super friendly and they've gone out of their way both times to meet our needs. Returning last month was like going back home. The family room is huge. Having a TV was a bonus. Wifi is free and breakfast is included. It's also in a very quiet location, which is hard to find in Addis, where many hotels and guest houses are located close to bars that play music until the wee hours of the morning. One of the staff members even came in on her day off to walk us to a local market so we could buy the coffee ceremony pots (major bargain!) We will definitely return.
