We stayed at the Queen of Sheba the Easter before last following a few weeks travelling around the country with my husband's sister, who was working for VSO in northern Ethiopia at the time. Having roughed it for most of the trip and my getting ill half way through we wanted to finish the trip in comfort. Our room was...

I've been staying at the Queen of Sheba on regular trips to Addis over the last five years. It is a little dated, the breakfasts are not the best, and the internet connection was occasionally erratic. Having said all that, for USD79, where else can you find clean, vast suite-type rooms with hot water, huge beds, and great, friendly service?...

An excellent and comfortable hotel. Vast suite style rooms and decent showers etc. Only the food was disappointing; we lived in Addis many years ago and the meals were worryingly familiar! Convenient to walk into town but far enough away to be quiet. Handy for Bole airport

WE spent a total of 4 nights here, spread over 2 stays. We arrived without a reservation as we refused to stay at the Ghion where we had been booked in for a stay of 16 days. The room we had been assigned at the Ghion was appalling, in an annex which overlooked the car park. It hadn't even been...

I stayed at the Queen of Sheba for 8 nights. Pros: the wireless (ask for a room that gets good connection), the staff were always helpful, generally clean. The complimentary pick up at the airport. As a female arriving on a 11pm flight, I was a little worried. But thankfully, QofS has a counter at the airport and they quickly...

I stayed here twice in 2008, with mixed feelings. There were some very nice things: free internet PCs, free shuttle to and from the airport (do tip though!), nice staff, easy to change money, big room, good TV, felt safe. There were some inconveniences: getting anywhere takes a 40-60birr taxi or a 30min walk, the included breakfast was quite terrible,...
