For $65 a night you get a one bedroom apartment with full kitchen and living room. No breakfast served but Five Loves Bistro is 5 to 10 minute walk on Cote d'Ivoire Street. Less than 10 minutes to ADD airport 250 to 300 Ethiopian birr by yellow taxi.

In Addis Abeba it is not that easy to find a good reasonably priced place to stay in and therefore so much better to find Ekko Guest House in Kasanches. Ekko is not cheap but you are compensated by beautifully decorated and clean rooms and public areas, a generator for the frequent power cuts in Addis, a kitchen with all...

This place has a potential to be a great place to stay but needs small improvements. The staff were absolutely great; helpful and pleasant. The location is good and quite at night except for the dogs that were barking the whole time. The rooms are very big and we particularly liked the living room. The kitchen had all the basic...

We stayed at Ekko for 3 months and I highly recommend it. The guesthouse offers everything you need -- space, internet, kitchen capabilities, great views, assistance orienting -- and is located on a side street in a friendly neighborhood. You can walk to many downtown areas, including Meskel Square, Menelik and Casanchas, and a short cab ride to others (Bole)....

My partner and I stayed here for 2 weeks when we first moved to Addis. Esmehayal and his staff were all exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful. They came and picked us up from the airport and helped us to find a house to live in. It's in a great location, right next to Grani di Pepe (one of the best...

My friend and I stayed in a two-bed roomed apartment at Ekko for more than a week and we like the space that the hotel afforded us. The owner is friendly, approachable and helpful but does not stay on site so if you need anything at night, it's touch and go if you'd be given the right information or help...

We stayed in a flat at Ekko Guest House for 4 days. Four people, 2 bedrooms and lots of space. The staff and owner are all very nice and helpful. The area is calm and safe, and it`s easy to get a cap to the center of Addis (10 minutes 6 $). There is a nice breakfast café, juicebar and...

Our stay was lovely. The apartment was exactly as described in a peaceful yet convenient location. We felt perfectly safe even walking out at night.The staff were SUPERB, so friendly and helpful despite the fact that they could not find us at the airport due to customs problems. It offers great value for money and the little shops nearby sell...
