The most annoying thing about this hotel is its`proximity to the airport. All flight take offs and depatures can be heard loud and clear. The rooms are average , the staff are too kind but the noise made me go crazy!

I got married in Addis Ababa and stayed here for the wedding night....as an American I loved the breakfast! And while I was in Addis I stayed either with family or a rented home, so having access to Wi-Fi was great! It's quiet, small and very clean. Enjoyed the one-night stay!

The guesthouse is in a nice neighborhood, has very clean and highly classy furniture, great and very comfortable bed, not to mention the great free breakfast and nice and courteous staff. I highly recommend this place for short or long term stay in Addis. They have three types of rooms. I stayed at the suite that is very large with...

Previously, in Addis I stayed in the Nigist Towers which is a no frills 100 USD a night 3 star hotel (it should be 2 stars) which has as its only main attraction that it is close to the UN compound and centre of the city. This time I chose Bole Guest House and first impressions were good. The guest...

“Either select the suite room for $99 in first or second floor or the large king size bedroom for $69 in the second floor. They are large and well worth the price.”

“Ask for a 99 USD per night suite. There are only two and the rooms are very large and comfortable.”
