The Kefetew Guest house is a great stop if you want to unwind for a few days in Addis. Genet is a wonderful host and was awesome to my family. The food is amazing! Location is a bit away from the center which has its advantages. I'd definitely stay here again.

The lovely Genet will look after you for your stay in Addis. We were only there for a few days but nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast in the large living room. Very good location and an oasis behind closed doors. Excellent.

Genet will make you fell at home. She was attentive, kind and helpful. The house is tastefully decorated and the room very confortable. She will also help you to arrange your transportation and give you tips regarding day-trips or shopping. And she is a fantastic cook! (including vegetarians!)

Kefetew guest house got everything right: the nicely design interior, the succulent Ethiopian food, the roof terrace with 180 degree view over Addis and most importantly the generosity and hospitality of Ms. Genet.

All the reviews of Genet Kefetew and her lovely guest house are true! She was gracious enough to pick us up at the airport, to give us a tour of Addis, and cook us several beautiful traditional Ethiopian meals. We were able to leave some luggage with her while we travelled south and north of Addis. My adult daughter and...
