Decent hotel for overnight transit. Friendly staff. The food was simple, tasty and neat restaurant. The room is very spacious with good wifi and basic amenities. It's about 15-20 minutes from airport near the presidential district. Recommended for short stay.

I spent a night, March 29, 2016, in Room 609 in this hotel while in transit through Addis Ababa. It was obvious that the hotel went to great length to spruce up the room, (and the hotel in general). The bed was big and comfortable, and everything worked well. There was a wi-fi connection, but very weak. The food was... More

Brilliant day in Ethiopia with very friendly staff at the hotel during my 10hr lay over with Ethiopian Airline. Clean hotel, nice view - very very comfortable bed! Safe to walk around the town on your own too.
