Good value hotel relatively close to the airport and businesses. I would recommend it over hotels such as radisson or hilton due to friendly, helpful staff, good value restaurant and free working internet, and proximity to businesses and an excellent variety of restaurants (within walking distance). The hotel gym is small but reasonably equipped and there is a sauna. There...

Convenient location: 20 minutes' walk or a 50 birr taxi ride from the airport. Fronting on Bole Road, but behind is a pleasant leafy district, nice to walk around. Bedrooms at the front are noisy but at the back are quiet, with a good view. Breakfasts are good and the hotel will serve them very early in the morning when...

Adequate size room but the bathroom is terrible. It is small and there is a step up to use the facilities. The toilets don't seem to work (we were in 3 different rooms). Hotel is kept vey clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. You get what you pay for!

I stayed total of almost 30 nights over two separate occasions. Hotel rooms were clean and basic. The best of all, the location is very good. It is very close from the airport. A lot of shops and restaurants. The supermarket down stair is a nice and convenient addition to the facility.

Don't expect anything amazing. But don't worry about any disaster either. This is a very good hotel for short business trips... for a few days maybe few weeks. When you need to stay a few months, it may get a bit difficult, as this is absolutely beside the main road, one of the noisiest in the city. So, in case...

Sometimes okay is ...okay. I mean this as a compliment. I stayed at the Wassamar Hotel in Addis for 4 nights on business. It was the rainy season, rivers of rainwater in the streets, but inside Wassamar I was dry, safe, looked after and fine. My room on the 7th floor was clean and well furnished with a separate lounge,...
