This hotel is well-placed between the airport and the centre of Addis. Large airy room with well-equipped kitchen and large shower room, all spotlessly clean. Staff could not have been more gracious, friendly and helpful, as I found all the Ethiopian people I met. I can highly recommend this reasonably-priced hotel.

Western style breakfast comes with a choice of bread, omlete, pancakes, oatmeal, fruit, cheese, cerial, milk, honey, tea/coffee, etc. Although there is no elevator, the travel up to the rooms are...

My wife and I had an enjoyable stay 6-day stay at the Sidama Inn while visiting our son and his family who are working in Addis. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Our room was quite large with rather spartan furnishings, but we had everything we needed including a small kitchenette. All the utilities worked fine. The building is...

I'm almost reluctant to write a review of this place because I want it all to myself! Sidama Lodge is perfect. The staff are all incredibly nice and attentive, the location is ideal, and the place actually has character! The hotel is filled with Ethiopian paintings, both traditional and modern, that are up for sale. It even hosts exhibitions from...
