Hi everyone. The Embilta is a basic hotel at a fair price used extensively to house visitors to St Paul's Millennium Medical College which is nearby. The rooms are basic but clean and there is normally hot water for a shower which is great after a hard day at the hospital. The reception staff especially Mesi are helpful, you can...

I stayed at the Embilta Hotel for about 10 days in November 2015. Based on the reviews I had read I wasn't expecting much but found the place to be a lot better than I expected. Now, some in my company had some not so pleasant skirmishes but overall this was hotel is really not bad. The rooms are basic...

My stays at Embilta have largely been pleasant, and the staff is fairly friendly. Internet routers seem to only allow a limited number of people on them at once, so during busy times, I would consistently get kicked off every 4 minutes. Pizza is the best in Addis (though the bar is low). Beer from their own brewery is legitimately...

To be fair, I lived at this hotel for 1 month. Some of the other reviewers unfortunately had a bad experience. I am unclear what training the wait staff had at this hotel but it definitely improved while I was there. Location: This hotel is a fair value when taking into account the amenities and the distance from other tourists...

This hotel is bit far from the Airport. The services are not great. The hotel and hotel staff are average. However, they have a nice gym and a decent swimming pool. They have there own brewery (So you can taste some beer). Not much words to tell bout the hotel as it was a average hotel. For people looking out...

I have been to this hotel twice with family. My first experience was shortly after the hotel opened. I found it very warm and welcoming back then.

Rooms have balconies and a nice view. Pool is only for polar bears, but a good way to close all your pores forever and ever, if that's a need you have. Beer is good, food is meh. Extremely oily.

For me the Embilta is close to my office so a good location. Nice gym and a microbrew in house. The price of the rooms is very reasonable and the rooms are quite basic. Food is also basic but you can spend the money you save on the room on dinner at Castelli's!
