Great guesthouse conveniently located near the newly built light rail - everyone from reception to staff was courteous and the room clean! Thanks again!

This is a guest house/hotel rather than usual Airbnb type listing but it provided reasonable rooms at a competitive price. Convenient for the airport for anyone with an early morning flight and easy, cheap access to the city centre with the LTR train service.

I have stayed in numerous guesthouses in Ethiopia and would definitely recommend this one. They have good internet and cable TV and a nice kitchen for our use. The location is good, near Meskel Sq, Pushkin square and Bole. It was a little hard to find the first time but the location is very good. They also have vehicles available to take you places and pick you up so that is a great service. I did not get to meet Alem but her husband was friendly and helpful. They even let me check out late so that i could shower before my flight. There were other foreigners there, from Europe and other places, which was nice. The staff speaks English so that is another plus. I definitely recommend this guest house.

This is listed as an Airbnb, but is really a guest house/hotel. I did not meet the listed owner of the property, which isn't really a big deal either way. To that end, there was no personalized greeting, but as is the case with most hotels, we were greeted by a receptionist and shown to our rooms. Overall, for the price, I am glad I stayed at this location. I am not sure that there is better in Addis for less than $30 a night - the place was mostly clean (nothing was notably dirty but we did hear rats in the ceiling), safe (although we did hear people screaming at the gate at random hours of the night), and in a solid location. The wireless internet also worked pretty well, which was a nice benefit. The beds were comfortable enough and each room has a TV. Added negative 1: same sex members of our group (friends) were hassled and basically denied at reception for trying to stay in a room together. We had more people so we were able to maneuver and manage the situation, but if two friends of the same sex want to rent a room together, this may not be feasible and you will need to pay extra for another room. Added negative 2: the airport transfer is VERY expensive. We paid $25 for one way (it's a 10-15 minute drive), and took a taxi back and paid about $7. This may be your only option on the way there, especially if you do not know taxi drivers in Addis to begin with, but on the way back I would recommend getting your own taxi. Added benefit: they have very cheap beer, wine, and water at the front desk, which was nice when we arrived.

Bonne Guest House avec un staff très très sympa. La guest house est constamment gardée. concernant la propreté rien à signaler. Avec la nouvelle ligne de métro vous pouvez accédez à Mesquel Square pour 0,08 euro ! Je recommande !
