    Good Enough

    The hotel is clean, the staff are helpful, some even going above and beyond. The food is decent in price, taste, and wait time and the wifi is great when too many other people are not on it. The laundry service is good and you can efficiently change money. There are many staff who do not speak english fully, so sometimes things get lost in confusion. It was initially difficult to get in touch with the hotel to coordinate the airport shuttle, until I was at the airport and a local tried several numbers for me. There was an issue with their key card system so I did not have a personal key my entire stay and had to be let into my room. Since my second room was nice, and quieter than my first without a key, I was not interested in moving to a third room with a manual key. The location was close to what I needed to do, so overall I was pleased enough with my stay.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    I paid for a suite and I was given a regular room with broken locks. I came back and asked for a suite, they gave me very reluctantly. Even the suite room has a lot of broken things---mold, broken curtains and so forth. The internet was horrible!

    Not bad for the area, but I prefer Bole

    Other reviewers have commented no shuttle was waiting for them upon arrival - I emailed and confirmed my airport shuttle several times, and it was indeed there when I arrived. I just didn’t know WHERE it was, and had to make several calls to find out. The poor driver was waiting for me for some time way outside the terminal. That being said, communication with the hotel via email was slow, if and when they actually responded to me. Staff were pleasant but speak only basic English. Currency exchange at the front desk is a bit below market rate. Rooms were clean and spacious (I had a twin) with a good view. Huge bathrooms and a fantastic shower/bath - hot with great pressure and lots of space. Free bottles of water left in the room every day. Restaurant food was mediocre and average prices for this kind of hotel - the breakfast was the exception (it was very good). Restaurant staff are super lovely, but don’t be afraid to check out some of the great little local restaurants just up the street to the left (25 birr injera meals). Cheap water is also sold at several shops nearby.

    The staff here are top notch! The cleaning staff really made our room sparkling every time. The laundry service did a great job, and was fast. We ate the buffet many times and really enjoyed it. We would definitely stay here again. Only criticism is that the internet was slow. Other than that, really a great stay!
