Hometown Addis is located in the heart of Bole, where many restaurants, shops, malls, embassies and business centers are situated. Bole international airport is just 2.7 km away from our hotel (10mins). Our rooms are furnished with comfortable beds and exquisite furniture providing a homely feel. Offering comfort for both local and international guests, all rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and has plenty of natural light. We also have the best shower in town
Hometown Addis is in a central location located next to European Union. Our staff are very friendly and helpful. The number one thing customers rave about is our showers. As it has very good pressure and with adequate amount of hot water. We also have good buffet breakfast.
The neighborhood is in Atlas area. Many embassies are located close by and The EU is a 5min walk. There are grocery stores, shopping malls, restaurants, and bars located within walking distance also.
  • Everything was great and Kerubel was very helpful with all our questions! Very good shower and nice breakfast too.

  • Just perfect. Everything!

    Emiel2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is the place you want to stay in Addis! If you're looking for affordable accommodation with the best value this is it. The staff and owners are so lovely! The rooms and bathrooms are like any other top star hotel you'd find in Addis or the States. Free daily water restocks, mini fridge, TV, plenty of storage, towels, daily house keeping etc. The reception desk agents speak perfect English and theres always someone there to help you with the bags up the stairs (remember to tip, it's not a written requirement but it's kind and expected, as it is in the U.S.) Kerubel was very responsive and helpful via airbnb before and during my stay. Atlas is a good area to get to and from places in Addis it's centrally located and easy for Taxis and drivers to locate. Enjoy!

  • Such a special place! It was an unforgettable experience and I really recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a cool artistic community.

    Michael2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • It would make sense to ask for an exact address description in advance. Otherwise very nice people, almost all speak English and give useful tips and tips. The taxi order was also prompt and punctual. I loved it.

    Sissy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! Large room with tons of electrical plugs; comfy bed. Shower has tons and tons of hot water - huge hot water heater for just you. Staff kindly let me store my bag after checked out. Cool staying in a circus compound. Near lots of restaurants and bars (a few blocks north) and even an awesome movie theater. Would stay again.

    Josiah2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly and helpful host ! Great location ! (just do not forget the access map... taxi drivers do not know Fekat Circus)

    Jean-François2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • People come here for experience, and more than just accommodation. If you wanted to connect or to know aspiring and creative ethiopians while in Addis Ababa, this place will fill your stay with exciting experiences, from interesting circus show practices to simple conversations. I had the great opportunity to do a short volunteer work on the digital/social media side of things with the passionate team of fekat. I forgot I was there for an overnight stay. Eyob, Sami and the rest of the team are amazing people. If you have a short time in addis, and want to make your stay worthwhile, better book this place.

    Marben2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot. During my stay there were no rehearsals because of Timkat. This seems to be a pity, but on the upside the place was very quiet.

  • I really enjoyed staying at Miriam and Fikru's place. Their hospitality is second to none. Fikru took me to the Timkat celebrations in Addis. Without his help I wouldn't have been able to enjoy the procession as much as I did. The apartment is very nice and quiet, restaurants with Wifi are opposite their place and both of them gave me a lot of helpful tips about Addis Abeba and Ethiopia. Miriam also has a travel agency and I will be on a tour organised by her soon. I can wholeheartedly recommend a stay at their place. To top it, I was even brought to the airport early in the morning on my day of departure. Again, thanks a lot for everything, Miriam and Fikru!

    Mark2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay at Miriam’s place. The room was in its own building which gives you extra privacy and with its own private bathroom. The location is excellent - 15 min walk to Meskal Square (the centre). The room doesn’t have WiFi but that wasn’t an issue for me as there are plenty of places nearby with it. Miriam (and her lovely family!) was super friendly and welcoming and I had a very good time. Gracias!!

    Alex2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Clean and quiet, the hosts are super nice and have the cutest kids. A few things you might want to know, bring warm clothes because it gets chilly at night, there's a 10pm curfew in the compound and there's no wifi (although you can easily get it from places nearby)

    Simon2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • an oasis of peace in the middle of ebullient Addis Abeba.

    Pierre2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Miriam & Fikru are gracious hosts. Miriam was very responsive both before our trip and during our stay. Fikru helped us arrange our pick-up from our tour guide since we didn’t have cell service in the country. The space was great and a close taxi ride from the airport and the National Museum. There are 2 restaurants next door where WiFi is available. Would definitely recommend. You can’t beat this value!

    Karyn2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here with a great hospitality.  Miliam and her husband are very kind and warmest people. The place is very quiet and safe. 

    Taiwook2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Miriam and her husband Figru are very helpful and friendly hosts. I enjoyed my time in their accommodation at the beginning of my trip and spent another night there before returning home. They supported me with important tips to orient and move around the confusing Addis. Really great hosts and a good location to discover Addis.

    Ralf2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • this place is the perfect place to chill and calm down in the heat of addis. the hosts are super welcoming and help you out. there are also some nice restaurants around in walking distance. I would recommend to stay at this place, it was wonderful, thank you! ☺️

    You gott 200 square meter big terrace with a great view over Addis and on the area mountains. You can even see Bole International airport. 
    Plenty of groceries, restaurant and a gas station in the neighborhood, 5 to 15 minutes walking distance. 
  • The home is a good value in my opinion. A good amount of space and the veranda above is fantastic with truly great views -- makes for a wonderful place to relax. The community is quite safe and calm. For travelers, I suppose it's important to consider whether it's your first time in Addis. Becki is very responsive, which was very helpful. This was our first time in Addis and while I've traveled extensively (65 countries) , there were things about the place that required a small bit explanation / clarification. There is a great deal of construction happening in the city and in this area, which is offering new options (e.g., restaurants). Construction can also impact electricity for short periods. Overall, we enjoyed the place quite a bit and found it to be a very good value. Becki went out of his way to make sure that everything was taken care of. It's clean, new, quiet, spacious and comfortable.

  • Everything about the stay was perfect. Check-in was a breeze and we were in touch a few days before so it was really easy to communicate. The place is really clean and the room is a great size, with space for everything you need. Not having WiFi isn't an issue. It's easy to link your phone and actually the data strength is better there than in most other areas. I'd highly recommend staying here, it's lovely being around a family and hearing all the happiness in the home! :)

    Kelly2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Like a small refuge with an extremely warm and welcoming family in busy and bustling Addis... staying here was completely and unexpectedly enjoyable! Super comfortable bedroom, especially the mattress and (the best!) pillows. We were happy with everything. Location was great too, close to everything. Recommended!

    Mandy & Greg2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Miriam and her family are very friendly, hospitable and welcoming. The place is clean, has all facilities you need and is centrally located. A great place from where to explore Addis Abeba.

    Jelle2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Miriam's place is an oasis in the middle of the hustle-bustle of Addis.

    Muhammad2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay, walkable distance to city center and not far from airport. Miriam and Fikru are very friendly and hospitable and its easy to connect to them and at the same time have your own space. Recommended

    Anoop2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, clean and secure, but best of all with the warmest kindest hosts anywhere. Internet stopped completely during my stay, which made things difficult, but it was a government measure across all of Ethiopia, and beyond the control of my hosts. While it is possible to walk all the way into central Addis, which I did, it is more than just a short walk. All up a fine place and recommended!

    Seikan2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Real Ethiopian & human hospitality

    Peter2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accommodations, staff was extremely careful and tried to help as much as possible. The single only negative point in my opinion was the location, depending on what you want of course, it can be a little bit far from Addis main touristic sites. Everything was very clean and comfortable.

    Fernando2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place with a great staff. The rooms are clean and very nice decorated. You can feel the care in everything.

  • Bk was an excellent host, very communicative before and during our stay. Keder, BK’s local Agent was available 24/7 for any kind of support starting from check-in. The property is super clean located in the center of Addis Ababa: very close to the airport, transportation, restaurants, supermarkets and stores. Unlike other parts of the town, the electricity, water and WiFi facilities which are 24 hours available makes BK’s place unique and favorite. I strongly recommend BK’s place for future guests.

    Zelalem2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is so cozy, comfortable, it is located at a great neighborhood in Addis Ababa. I couldn’t ask for more. Bk was a great host made sure our comfort was kept, he responded to issues right away and made sure we were satisfied.

    Rahel2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • I had an excellent experience staying at Bk's apartment. The apartment was clean and Bk or someone else will be available if you need any help. Having wifi in the apartment was also great. The apartment is in a safe and quiet area of town. Very close to many grocery stores, restaurants, and the central mall.

    Trevin2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • BK is a very responsive and pleasant host. He was texting/calling everyday for the first 2 days to make sure that I don't need any thing and all is good. The apartment is nice and clean. The bunk bed is a plus. The location is good in the Bole Area near many restaurants. It's 10mins walk to airport street. Overall was a very pleasant experience

    Sultan2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • An outstanding host, everything I needed was a phone call away.

    Ruth2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is small and very welcoming. All four of us have stayed, and it is no problem to live with five people, and the price is reasonable. I will recommend it to my friends in the future.

    Xiao Li2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • The best decision I made for my staying in Addis ! I was considering a couple of things when I was searching a place to stay in Addis Ababa on Airbnb SAFETY,LOCATION, PRIVACY, NOT TOO PRICEY and BK’s place has it all.The place is located in a perfect area of the city . You can go to the most attractions , shopping centers , markets , cafes including to the airport with a less price of public transportation or if you want to look around & get to know the city you can do by walk as well :) . BK’s other person KEDIR is kind enough to let me check in early morning & he was a phone call away to assist all my needs during in my stay at the condo. BK himself came to check me when he was in the city too . SAFETY I stayed a little over a month. There is always a guard at the gate ,the people in the area are very friendly & helpful to show you anything you want to know plus I was mostly coming to the condominium at night by walking from the main road with my lil boy & not for once I had a bad experience! PRIVACY the place was all mine & great value for the money. Over all if you are looking for a place considering all the things I stated above , I would absolutely recommend BK’s place . Thank you again BK for being a great host . I would definitely come back again !!!

    Fiteh2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • BK's place is much bigger than it looks in his photos, it's a one bedroom apartment with a living room with sofa, desk and a large TV, a kitchen, a bedroom with a double bunk bed and a small bathroom. It was so easy to communicate with BK and the check-in was very easy, his friend Kadir checked me in and he was so lovely and welcoming. For me the best thing about BK's place is the location - it's so central and conveniently located in the Bole area near the Japan Market which is near a major mall (Friendship Business Center), shops, a supermarket, bars and I felt the area was very safe to stay in.

We really love Ijigayo (not sure with the spelling), she's the kindest person in the world. The best thing with Michael's place are the people living there. They will make your stay worth while in Ethiopia! We wish to be back there again soon. Thank you!

    Ima Genet loves to cook and to host people. She does it in a wonderful and very tasty way. The meaning of the name Genet in Amharic is 'paradise'. That's what she creates in her home - her place - her paradise. There she is fulfilling her dream, her creativity and her love for cooking and people. Anyone who comes to Ethiopia Is invited to a special experience. To enter the heart of the culture and to be hosted in mother Genet house.
    Ima Genet House is located in the center of Addis Abeba, in a quiet place - in Kazanchis neighborhood. *important to say that the rooms are simple (not like hotel...), but clean, there is hot shower, comfortable place and warmy. Ima Genet serve also traditional meals, drinks etc Ima Genet house is a great place to feel home, to experience Ethiopian food which serve with a lot of care, love and attention. Please note: * The price of the meals is not including with the price of the lodging **In the house of Ima Genet there are 2 rooms for guests. Both of them are listed on Airbnb. if this room in the list is alredy reserved in the dates that you want, you can check the listing of the other room. ( Ima Genet hosting room # 2. Link: http://abnb.me/EVmg/McSqpGFDTz)
    Kazanchis neighborhood. very central and quiet neighborhood.
  • I loved staying with Ima and her 24 year old son, Yared! Yared is knowledgeable, mature, and is happy to host guests and chat about what’s new in the world. Ima is so sweet and her cooking is delicious! Yared and Ima’s home is clean, comfortable, centrally located, safe, and homey. Arrival - I bought a SIM card and 7 days of unlimited data for ~530birr at the airport. Money exchange and ATMs are available at the airport. The currency exchange rate was very reasonable, USD$1 to 32birr. The taxi from the airport cost 300birr, drivers seemed unwilling to go any lower. It was a bit difficult to describe Ima’s location to drivers. I would suggest telling them Kazanchis (area), then find yelibe fana primary school, then follow the map that Yared gives you to find the apartment complex, Kazanchis condominium. The primary school and apartment is on a dirt road that is very rocky. Taxi drivers may hesitate to venture further, but I assure you they can make it. The apartment complex is gated (iron gates) with a guard. Ima’s flat is just inside of the gate on the left side. Home - I found it very homey and comfortable. There is a lock on the bedroom for privacy, the bed is comfortable and the sheets are warm. The bathroom is clean and the toilet flushes well. The shower water pressure is excellent, the water temp is lukewarm but manageable. There are no bugs or mosquitos in the flat. While there was no WiFi, the unlimited data on my phone was fast. In Addis I got LTE service everywhere. Ima cooks a great meal (60birr for breakfast, 80birr for dinner) and makes tea and coffee every day. She’s so warm and motherly and made me feel like I was a part of the family. Safety - as a solo female traveler, safety is very important to me. Yared and Ima made sure to remind me to keep my phone out of sight when I’m walking around town and carefully described how to get to my destinations. Their apartment is very conveniently located - just outside of the dirt road “subdivision,” there are minibuses that take you to the ethnological museum and the national museum for just a few birrs. The red terror museum is within walking distance. I had no trouble managing the minibuses as there’s always someone on the minibus with enough English fluency to help me get to where I need to go. All in all, I had such a wonderful and memorable time with Ima and Yared. I was sad to go! Do not hesitate to book with them, they are the best version of what Airbnb stays could be!

    Bonnie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • very great

    Kang2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Yared and Ina are wonderful hosts. Their place is clean and the food is amazing! Don’t miss the coffee ritual in the morning! It’s better if tou take their friends’ taxi, because its a little bit difficult to find the place. However, Yared was really solicitous and helped us to find his place! I strongly recommend this airbnb ❤️

    Jenny2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very cool stay at Yared's place. The flat is cosy and super close to Fendika. Yared and his mom are great hosts too!

    Jasmin2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Communication with Yared was great but unfortunately I had issues with my flight and I arrived to my layover connection way too late and couldn’t stay with Yared this time. I stayed with Yared before (about two years ago)and will definitely be going back. looking forward to seeing Yared and his mom hopefully soon. Great family and awesome host.

    Nadir2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our second stay at Yared's ! We had to spend another 1 night in Addis in the middle of our trip in Ethiopia, and we were lucky enough Yared and his mum's house was available. It felt like coming back home, and we recommend it again!

    Stéphane2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Yared and his mum are the nicest hosts you can have if it's your 1st time in Ethiopia. They are always ready to help you and give precious advices for a trip in this beautiful country. Also, the buna and the food are great. Next time we're in Addis, we'll be at Yared's for sure!

The house is a beautiful oasis perfectly situated behind Piazza where you’ll find anything you may need within walking distance. Everyone in their home was incredibly warm and helpful and I couldn’t have wished for better hosts!

    Maximilian2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • My second time at Geke’s place and it did not disappoint. I had all the home comforts which were much needed after a couple of weeks travelling. Geke and her extended family are all wonderful and could not do enough to help me.

    HOTEL CELESTE is a brand new hotel which is located at the heart of the metropolitan area of Addis Ababa with only five-minute (2.4km) drive from Bole international airport (200m from the Ethio-China friendship square/Wollo Sefer square). It has well-furnished guest rooms, one multi-purpose hall, spacious lobby bar, terrace bar with a view of the capital and mountains and other outlets with enough parking area.
    HOTEL CELESTE ETHIOPIA is located in one of the best locations of the city which is very near to the airport, tourist attraction sites and meeting/conference areas such as the African Union and ECA. All our rooms have big space which is enough for three beds and the twin beds are designed to be easily fixed to be one big bed. We have extra beds which are the same standard/size as the ones we have in the twin rooms.
  • I’m a peace corps volunteer in Ethiopia and decided to stay here before flying back to my site. I have decent amount of experience with Addis, hotel Celeste is my spot now. Great staff, great location (super close to the airport) although, it’s kind of a weird spot because it’s down a dirt road BUT, ride drivers and taxi drivers know it pretty well. All in all, would for sure stay here again.

    Marc2019-12-08T00:00:00Z

    Adebayo2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is an awesome place. Clean and the staff are helpful and nice. Ask for Ephram and Penit, Ephram knows everything about that town. Don't be discourage with the road that leads to the hotel. The location is also good that all our meetings were 5 to 7 minutes away. I will definitely use the place when next I'm in Addis. Their injera is really nice.

    Adewale2019-07-09T00:00:00Z

    Bridget2018-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful property in the middle of an older community in the process of developing. It’s like an oasis! Although my stay was brief, I enjoyed every minute.

    Maureen2018-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Hotel Celeste, I'm happy to recommend this hotel to anyone who stays in Addis. The staff is really nice and friendly and always helpfull. First we had a smaller room. But soon we upgraded to suite. We used the room service a lot and got always greeted with a smile. We hooked up with this friend Ephra who works in the hotel and imageethiopiatravels. He fixed everything for us, showed us around Addis, fixed a city tour and even came out with us to Mama's Kitchen for some drinks and dance. Big thanks to the Celeste staff and especially Ephra.

    It’s a safe neighborhood also you can find a 3 and 4 star hotels around, close to the main road which the guests can easily get transportation services
  • After six weeks traveling from Cairo to Addis, staying at Yismadengez's place was almost like coming home. Such a lovely little apartment, absolutely perfect for a solo traveler like myself or for a couple. I never actually cooked in the kitchen as food is so good and easily available everywhere in the city, but it was nice to know I could cook if I so wanted. Added bonus the cafe downstairs in which to have fantastic western-friendly breakfasts, something which can be hard to come by in Ethiopia! I'll definitely consider staying here again next time I'm in Addis.

    Katy2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

    Chris2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • A great place in the center of Addis Ababa. Our host Yisma Yoannis welcomed us right at the time we arrived from the airport. They gave us local tips of what we can visit. They were always replying really quick and were really helpful. The place provided a bathroom, a sleeping room, a salon and a kitchen. All separated. I can only suggest this place!

  • Weyni's place is a real oasis. The room was spacious and comfortable. Everyone who looks after the place is lovely and it feels safe. I can highly recommend it.

    Nils2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Weyni is a great place to go very friendly and helpful .

    Anna2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely private bedroom and fun atmosphere with sweet little family.

    Janna2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Weyni's place was comfortable enough that we came back to stay again! Just as good as the first stay.

    Steven2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Weyni's place is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city. It's easy to get around once you get the hang of it and definitely get a local SIM card. Weyni and her family are warm and welcoming, the place is clean and secure and as an added bonus this is a great place to connect with other travelers. Wenyi is very knowledgable about how to get around the city and is great company as well if she is available to hang out. I would definitely stay again!

    Kelly2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Weyni is a brilliant host! She has an open heart, a brilliant family and a lovely home. There is no better place to stay while in Addis.

    Adeyemi2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Weyni has welcomed us with an open heart and was very keen to statisfied all our questions and requests (thank you again about that). We stayed in two of the rooms at different time and in one of them, Weyni kindly arranged an additional bed as we were three guests. Both rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. Internet is working well (which is obviously not the case everywhere in the country...). We had access to the kitchen which was very convenient in the evenings and for breakfast. We also took the cooking class, which goes along with a market tour and Weyni has introduced us all ingredients and spices at the local market which we enjoyed a lot. The dishes we cooked were the best we had. I can only warmly recommend a stay at Weyni's house :)

    Camille2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • I have had such an awesome and beautiful time at Weynis guesthouse. She is such a positive and warm-hearted person. I loved her charm every morning. Whatever I wanted she took the time to help me out. As super-duper extra here heritage walking tour is a must. I learned so much in about 4 hours about the very impressive Ethiopian history. She knows so much and can answer any question without any doubt. Besides the very spacious, stylish and clean rooms. The whole accommodation has a beautiful green indoor area with a huge compound where you can relax, work, eat, Netflix or just chat with Weyni. Around the accommodation, there are lovely locals such as the Jazz Village. The greatest spot for Jazz lovers in whole Addis Ababa. The neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance are supermarkets, a local market and everything that you need. The bole area (the city center) is 10 - 15 min from the accommodation away. Which is for Addis a normal distance and not at all expensive. I loved my month at Weynis guesthouse and will definitely come back again. I will be coming back this summer and autumn again. P.S.: Don´t miss here awesome and traditional cooking classes in the guesthouse and the local market tour. #Thank me later!!!! :-)

    The place is located in a vicinity called Lebu. A cosy L shape home with private space to work from home not far from African Union
    A quite safe middle class neigbourhood called Lebu not far from the African Union. There are restaurants, supermarkets, clinics, parmacy and bakery all in a walking distance. Guests are free to use the laundary themselves or the domestic help will do it once in a week.
    Quite Negbourhood with a walking ditance from supermarkets bakery and cafeterias. It is not in central Addis area called Lebu. it is accessible with local transportaton
  • 1. Located in a residential area southwest of Addis. You can travel to Mexico by 5 bir, and if you go to Mexico, you will be able to connect from east to west and north to south. (For reference, I prefer a residential area where people can get a glimpse of the lives of locals rather than a crowded downtown.) 2. A 5-minute walk to supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and Bunna. Convenient to live! 3. Beautiful and friendly Jegehuk will always help you. 4. If you are going to take the morning bus, we recommend you to book a taxi early in the day before.

    Bilhah2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I do not know where to start! I can absolutely recommend Michael's house to everyone. I felt at home at all times and the overall relationship is very familiar. Michael is always available for questions and help. His household help Egigayew (or Ejigayehu) is such a cute and sweet girl. A beauty inside and out! I have never met such a beautiful soul in my life. For a very decent price, she also cooks daily local food on request. She strives for her work at all times and offers her help in all respects. I can't wait to meet Michael and Egigayew again as soon as I travel to Addis Ababa. Incidentally, the house is in a very quiet and safe environment. I felt very safe at all times. Everything you could need is within walking distance: supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, restaurants in all price ranges, tuk tuk station, minibus station, small local shops and at the very end of the parallel main street a local market place. The airport can also be reached within an hour, depending on the time of day. It should not be forgotten that temporary power cuts are also possible in Ethiopia. Overall, my experience in Addis has been the best of all my trips so far. Michael is very communicative and likes to entertain with his knowledge. You can still learn a lot from him! Many thanks to Michael and Egigayew for everything you did for me. See you soon!

    Giulia2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Michael was a great and responsive superhost. He was also a Good Samaritan to me by taking me to the clinic at 3:30am just a couple of days after I arrived, for a random bug I acquired (probably from airline food). His house assistant cooked great Ethiopian food for me at a very reasonable price per meal. I made a wonderful choice and I believe anyone would be grateful to stay at Michael's place.

    Alan2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is such a pure gem! I initially booked it for a week and ended up extending my stay because that is how much I loved it! Mickey and his amazing, sweet, and motherly co-host Ejigayehu were wonderful! From the day I checked in to my check out, Ejigayehu looked after me and checked my well-being. The hospitality, the cleanliness, the quietness and privacy, as well as the homey feeling of this place was just amazing! Location is in the heart of Lebu, an emerging affluent neighborhood with easy access to major supermarkets, restaurants and banks. The main road/highway is right by the house, maybe two minutes walk, which makes it easy to get taxi or bajaj to anywhere in Addis. I really loved the quietness and green vibe of the neighborhood. There are many schools, family centers and family homes adding to the safety. If you are looking to experience a new and lively part of Addis away from the noise and chaos of the central city, I truly recommend you try out Mickey's place.

    Tantan2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks heaps to Mickey and Ejigayhu! Had an incredible time. Perfect for chiller introverts. Safe, clean and incredibly peaceful and quiet. Can't wait to return. Had a great time ~ incredible hospitality. See you guys again soon!

    Jp2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Michael’s place was clean, comfortable and provided all the necessary amenities. The hospitality from both Michael and his housekeeper was excellent. I felt very relaxed here and was happy to meet other guests. The neighbourhood has an Ethio Telekom, banks, ATMs, grocery stores, and restaurants, with a minibus stand (for getting to the city center) just down the street.

    Jenna2019-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Here are the reasons why you'd want to choose to stay chez Michael: First, the area where the house is located is very very safe and accessible by public transportation, and this is crucial for you whether you are working in Ethiopia or coming for tourism. Second, the house you're going to stay in is very cozy and I assure you that you're going to be comfortable. You'll definitely call this place "home". There are all the necessary facilities you will need, from the washing machine to the stove to WiFi, and you know what they say "home is where WiFi is". Third, you will meet the kindest person God has ever created on earth, Ejigayhu. She is more than a housekeeper; she is beauty and mercy and kindness and cuteness all combined; and she will take good care of you when you're sick, make you "shai" with honey when you're busy working and you will absolutely fall in love with her lovely face when she asks you how to say something in English. She's young and petite but I like to call her " a mother" because that's what she really is to everyone in the house. Last but not least, you will appreciate the personality of Mickey (that's what we like to call him here) for so many things: You seem like a curious person who craves new adventures (I know that because you chose Airbnb) and Michael is the kind of person who LOVES to answer any question you have. Not just that, he knows EVERYTHING! Do not hesitate asking him about history of Ethiopia in particular and Africa in general; He will tell you stories you had never read about and interesting facts you were never taught in school. He is also the person to go to when you like to have suggestions about places to go to (restaurants, clubs, parks, you name it!). Believe me, when in doubt, ask Mickey. If you are a people person who likes to socialize and chat, Michael will fill that quality time of yours after an exhausting day with talks about politics and sports and movies. And if you are an introverted person who like quiet and personal space, Michael will respect your individualistic lifestyle and would probably offer you a book to read in peace (most likely a self-help book on how to strive through hard times) offer you a bowl of Kolo and a Habesha beer . Mickey is an intellect with the coolest playlist ever! You will discover beautiful modern songs of Sami Dan, Betty G and Rophnan, Rastafarian music of Ja Lud and enjoy random traditional Ethiopian songs on the radio. You will always find Mickey singing along to the lyrics. You will be amazed at how time flies in that little place we call home. I guess it's because you will enjoy it so much (especially the weekends!) If you're a sports freak, he might take you running on an early morning; and if...

The WiFi is also excellent.

  • Family cozy is the most accurate name for this place. Michael truly makes your stay like a home away from home. Every detail of my time here has been so personal, and as a solo traveler I think it is ideal. Not far from the amazing spots to see in Addis, but tucked away nicely in a safe and relatively quiet location. Accessible neighborhood for all of your needs. The staff, Michael especially, are extremely hospitable and welcoming. Can’t wait to come back!

I did not feel like a guest at all but really like having holidays between friends, ; you have your space but can have so many meaningful conversations and live great experience if you come here with a respectful mindset! We had a few night out with people staying there and Michael joined us for diner one night which was just so great from him. He told me everything I needed to know in order to live a unique and personal experience not just in Addis but around Ethiopia. Im so grateful I found this place and grateful I met amazing people for a lifetime. Also the pancakes in the morning are delicious and always a great way to start the day. Thank you so much for your hospitality x Elody

  • Wow.. what an experience Michael and the rest of the team have given me. Priceless memories with some great people in a chilled, loving and aesthetically pleasing environment. Right from arrival you could sense the love around the complex and it certainly lived up to its name of coziness. I couldn't be more greatful with my stay and my only regret is I didn't stay longer. Breakfast was amazing and the chefs catered for my plant based needs accordingly. There is a young lady with coffee brewing all day everyday and if there are any problems staff are always happy to help. In terms of Adis visiting historic locations is a must!! Words cannot comprehend the experience I have had in the city and I highly recommend you get a guide to experience the greatness this city has to offer. Give this number a shout (Adis Tours) they will take good care of you - +251 94 024 1952. Ethiopia is full of important history and extensive culture and you will be doing yourself in justice if you do not experience it. Thank you Michael and the rest of the team, I will certainly be returning with a bigger party next time as this was a much needed solo trip. Love JJ

    In “Amare’s house” you’ll feel like you’re outside when you're relaxing in our beautiful house thanks to its high skylight roof. All our rooms are well designed, comfortable, clean, secure and well-equipped so that you can enjoy your holiday or business trip. The house is situated near the old airport area called 'Mekanisa' from where you can reach shopping malls, cafes, traditional and international restaurants, fast food, juice & yogurt bars, and traditional coffee places in a short distance.
    To give our home a semi-modern, semi-rustic look, I personally designed our place by using the old furniture of my parents that we recycled and mixed with modern local wood with the help of a talented craftsman. The house is inside a family compound separated by a grilled fence where my neighbors are my parents and my sister’s Ethio-French family. My sister’s family has two guard dogs on their side of the house but they don’t mind if you let them come to our side if you love spending time with dogs. We also produce our own eggs from the chickens in our chicken coop.
    Our place is located five minutes from the old airport compound –one of the biggest hubs of the international community in Addis Ababa. You can find there almost all services that you would need during your trip, from diverse international restaurants (Arab, Italian, Korean), to hair salons, spas, gyms, traditional dances and foods, shopping malls, local movie theaters, fast food etc… I also own a local yogurt bar accessible at a walking distance from the house. At a walking distance from our house, you will find the ZOMA Museum which is an environmentally conscious art institution and that includes a gallery, library, children center, edible garden, elementary school, art and vernacular school, amphitheater and a museum shop. The best burger joint in town, Sishu burger, is also located 7 minutes from our place, as well as the headquarters of the African Union. For those who plan to go out of the city, you can access easily the ring road from our place and take one of the 5 exits of Addis Ababa. As a reference, we’re located: - 8 min drive from ICS (International Community School) - 22 min drive from Bole International Airport - 20 min drive to Bole Area - 20 min drive to the old town of Piazza.The yogurt
  • Great host, she was very helpful and friendly the whole stay. The room is very bright thanks to the big window, but also very bright in the morning. The place was beautiful and felt at home. The gate can only be opened by someone the inside as per house rule. The area is very quiet, if you want time away from “the city”

    Federico2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Family-friendly, 2BR stand-alone unit in centrally located neighborhood near Peacock Park and the airport.
    Our neighborhood is in a residential area located in the city center, just a few minutes drive from the airport. There are supermarkets, cafes, hotels and restaurants nearby, all within walking distance.
  • Large apartment as shown in the photos. Full equipped kitchen with everything you needed. The washing machine is in good condition and easy to use.

    Isabel2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Candace’s place twice during my trip to Ethiopia. Candace is a great host and her apartment is a good value. Please see my previous review for more detail.

    Steve2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Candace's place is a garden level apartment underneath her and her husband's house, which is located just a block from Bole Avenue (a.k.a., Airport Road), the main thoroughfare in Addis Ababa. The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen, hot water and decent WiFi. Candance and her excellent employee, Nigatu, personally picked me up at the airport when I arrived from Rwanda and then had me dropped off at the airport when I left for Bahir Dar - all at no charge. I highly recommend this listing. It's a great value and a much better option than staying at one of Addis Ababa's (generally) dismal mid-range hotels.

    Steve2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • My family had a nice 3 night stay in Candace's place in the Bole area -- good location, off the main road but walkable to a fair number of restaurants and shops. Safety is fine walking around at night -- not sure if it was just because of the AU summit, but there were tons and tons of security on the Airport Road (just next to the house), so not even the slightest concern for walking around even late at night. The apartment itself is equipped with a full kitchen, extra parking spot if you have a car, and the house guard / manager Negatu is friendly and speaks pretty decent English. Candace was also a friendly host and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended if you're looking for a place to stay in Bole! All the basics are fine too, good WiFi, good shower pressure/water temp, etc. The 4G signal inside the house is a little weak since it's the lower apartment (1 or 2 bars most of the time), but that's not a big deal since you can just use the WiFi or step outside into the garden.

    Evan&Yasmin2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Candace and Mike are nice people, the place is very clean and a good starting point to discover the city. Strongly recommended!

    Jonathan2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Candace was beyond an amazing host. She's lived and gone to school in the United States and is from Ethiopia, so her knowledge and context of both countries was invaluable. The whole family and staff are great people to know. Addis Ababa is extremely urban and the traffic is really thick. Candace's place is right in that urban area, close to Wollo Sefer, but it's tucked away down a hill and the home itself is a sanctuary. The compound is completely surrounded by green vines and flowers on the inside. The outlets on the inside of the apartment can fit both American and Ethiopian electrical plugs, so we didn't need to use our transformer / adapter except for heavier plugs like the MacBook Pro adapter. There' s a local hot water heater that heats dedicated water for the shower. The kitchen has a gas stove, pots and pans and as of fall 2019 there was a brand new set of Cuisinart knives and a cutting board that were excellent for food prep, along with several Tupperware containers. Fridge and freezer. Washing machine. Place is clean. Wifi with repeater in the apartment itself. VERY secure and safe. Security guard on premises. There's a supermarket within walking distance ( less than 1 mile ) to buy all food stuffs. There's another supermarket a mile away or so called FRESH CORNER where Candace recommended buying all produce which has the best produce. Candace's place is only 10 minute drive from airport and only a few blocks from huge main street called Airport Road ( or 'Bole Road') where you can buy pastries, groceries, go to the bank, ATMs, get local SIM cards for your unlocked smartphone ( Cricket phones don't work here, even if unlocked ) . You can also catch taxis there and get almost anywhere. Get the RIDE app if you don't have access to a driver, though, it's like Ethiopia's version of UBER or Lyft. I've been an AirBnB host and also an AirBnB guest for years and this is by far my best experience initiated through AirBnb. It was me, my wife, and two of our daughters, 22 and 4 years old respectively, and everyone was accommodated extremely well.

  • This is a great place to stay in Addis Abeba and great host to have. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend it and Aydu and Reaza was helpful and handsome.

    Alain2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • If I could, I would give Aydu’s home 5 Diamonds review! WOW, where do I start: 1) The home is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, spacious, and very comfortable! Plenty of places to lounge and hang out with friends and family. We often cooked in and the kitchen was very spacious and had all the necessary amenities! We enjoyed the fact we had WiFi and washer available to us throughout our stay. 2) Service level was phenomenal! Meaza often called and checked on us. We had an issue during our stay and she was able to rectify the problem the same day. She was very professional and pleasant. During our stay, we were provided cleaning service. The young lady was so sweet, efficient, and professional. She cleaned the house as thought she was 5 people! 3) Aydu and Meaza were so accommodating with the checkin and checkout. I just wanted to thank them for everything! Thank you for being so gracious and opening your home to us! We were so satisfied with our stay and would definitely stay here again!

    Tizita2020-01-11T00:00:00Z

    Fikre2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Place was nice and clean. Host which lives abroad was very nice and helpful, we didn't get to meet him but he was very efficient in getting back to us on chat. Electricity does cut off from time to time, make sure it's the whole neighbourhood that doesn't have electricity.. if the neighbours do have electricity then it's likely that the co-host forgot to top up the electricity which is what happened to us so make sure to check and ask. Location is also a bit further away from central but it was family time for us so we didn't need to go out often. Other than that, all was nice and it was a lovely stay overall.

    Nadine2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • A very beautiful apartment, spacious, clean ,, The rooms are big ,,,, The residential area is very safe ... The cleaner is fun and respectful. Sister Mazza all love and appreciation ,,, She loves helping in everything ... I will go back there again and live with you .. Thank you all ❤️😍

    Megon2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • The brothers at Keba guesthouse were great. They accommodated late night airport pick up and helped me with fixing my SIM card issues, arranging taxis, etc. Their place is located a little off the beaten track so local taxis had some trouble finding it, but if you provided the brothers’ cell number, taxi drivers could call and get directions. There are no restaurants or shops nearby but they have a kitchen at their place and full menu (breakfast/lunch/dinner) if you choose to eat there. Food was delicious!

  • Excellent value for a quick stop in Addis. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and gave great advice on how to get to different places in Addis. The rooms are basic but comfortable. Breakfast was prepared fresh and was delicious! The neighbourhood is a little on the quiet, residential side, with not a lot to do within walking distance, but it's easy to get taxis to just about anywhere for $5-$10. Would definitely stay again!

    Mélina2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a great value for your money. This is the second time I've stayed there. It's in a secure compound, and the two cleaning ladies are almost always there and very friendly and eager to help you. It's location isn't close to the downtown area, but there are plenty of shops and restaurants in the Meskel Flower area to choose from. If you want to get around, skip the taxi's and download the Ride App, the Ethiopian version of Uber. Some of the fixtures in the house are in rough shape, but everything was functional. For what you are paying, it's really hard to complain about anything. I would definitely stay there again should the need arise.

    Joshua2019-08-24T00:00:00Z

  • Moses is a fantastic host. The house has the basic amenities covered, but provides you with most everything you would need for relatively straightforward daily life in Addis at a really good value. The house currently houses a nice ex-pat community that comes together in the evenings and weekends. Moses is very easily accessible around the house and always by email. He and his wife respond quickly to questions and request and make you always feel welcomed.

  • We were in and out of Addis 3 times and stayed here for the closeness to the airport. The hosts helped in every way with taxis and made our life much easier. There was a problem with their dog continually barking outside when we had the front room. Very nice people

    Jenny2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and basic with great communication. Very close to airport which was great for us and they sorted out taxis which made life so easy when you’ve just arrived in the country.

  • The hosts were amazing, pretty cool people, they made me feel at home, the location was pretty decent not crowded at all. Even though the maid did not speak English she was very helpful and prepared the best breakfast. One thing you should know is that 2 out of 3 days during my stay there was a scheduled power shutdown for 10-12 hours which lead to the WiFi not being available and the heater not working. Other than that i have no complaints, the hosts were one phone call away and super helpful.

    Shahbaaz2019-10-30T00:00:00Z

  • Staying with Iside, Simo Alem was like being at home with family. I was immediately 100% welcome and very well looked after! Thank you for 2 wondeful weeks :)

    Katrien2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    David2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Iside is a very warm, welcoming, relaxed, helpful, and communicative host, as were everyone at her place lovely and helpful - perfect for helping me settle in Addis. The bedroom space is good with a private bathroom and some nice touches, the villa has a beautiful tranquil garden I found really relaxing to both work and chill in, WiFi works fine as expected for Addis, villa and immediate area around feel very secure and safe (if you don’t take spare keys out don’t worry if it just takes a few loud knocks on the gate to get in -someone will come :)), and, yes, it is really in a really great location in the Bole district with nearby restaurants and super close to the airport. There is a bit of noise around so if you need real silence might not be ideal, but personally this didn’t really bother me at all (seems part of the experience of being anywhere in Addis). Overall a lovely stay and look forward to hopefully coming back and seeing Iside and everyone again.

    Sam2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Iside's home is a gem located within the wonderful neighborhood of Bole. Bole feels very safe and has many restaurants and coffee shops to choose from that are all within walking distance from Iside's home. Her home is a 10 minute drive from the airport and a 3 minute walk from the famous restaurant, Yod Abyssinia. She has a beautiful garden that feels like a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, an amazing tortoise that roams the garden, and two friendly and calm dogs. The room offers a comfortable double bed and private full bathroom, and everything is extremely clean. Breakfast and coffee were provided anytime we wanted/asked for it. Iside herself is extremely kind and warm, and we really enjoyed getting to know her and the staff she employs to help out around the house. I also strongly recommend going to the restaurant where Iside works as an executive chef for some amazing Italian food! Overall, we had a great time staying at Iside's home, and I would definitely stay here again. I strongly recommend her beautiful home!

    Alexandra2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • In the busy and exciting area of Bole, this quiet backstreet house makes the perfect location with easy access to great restaurants, cafes and cultural attractions. The warm hospitality coupled with the beautiful room and outdoor garden makes Iside's place a rare catch. Will definitely be back soon.

    Mhraf2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience saying with Iside. Her garden is a hidden gem inside the city, I spent many mornings drinking coffee and enjoying the sun (in the company of two friendly dogs and turtle). Iside is a kind host who helped me out with any questions I had. Allem, the housekeeper, is a genius in all aspects and kept my things cleaner than I do at home. The space is comfortable, clean and well situated in the city. Big thanks for everything!

    Janine2019-11-14T00:00:00Z

There are three dogs are affectionate and great company and her garden even has a very sweet tortoise you'll see running around. The WiFi amenities are really fantastic and the location is a short walk away from many restaurants and shops.

    A great place with a custom made furniture designed and made by a passionate designer, close to airport like 15 min drive from airport depending on the traffic with a friendly space for work with a laptop ( which we provide) with free of charge.
    The place is bigger than you see it on the picture and the location is perfect with perfectly utilized space.
    It’s a safe neighborhood also there is a hospital. a good bar and restaurant, close to the main road, city metro which the guests can easily get transportation services
  • The studio is spacious and suitable for both short or long stays. The hosts are very responsive and committed to ensuring their guests have a pleasant stay. I enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to other visitors.

  • Very spacious apartment with balcony on first floor in calm street but in busy area in good localization. Communication with Nebyiu was really good and he was very kind to me. I reccomend his place!

  • Nebiyu’s place is a beautiful, spacious and feels like a retreat from bustling Addis Ababa. Nebiyu was always helpful and went the extra mile to make sure that my stay was as comfortable and convenient as possible. I can’t wait to come back!

  • Fitsums place is really nice and clean but the best is the great hospitality. The staff is super friendly and Fitsum himself helped me so much when I had a medical problem and needed to see a doctor. Thanks a million for that!! The place itself is like a peaceful retreat from the bustling city - although it's still very centrally located. There is also shops and everything you need close by. They have a kitchen and a small outside sitting area. It's very safe, too. So everything you need really. 100% recommendation!!

    Full second floor apartment available: newly constructed and fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, walking distance to UN/ECA, Hilton Hotel, Radisson Blu and other international hotels. Master bedroom with en-suite. Each bedroom has its own balcony. Apartment is beside Ethiopian Human Rights Commission and Ethiopian Sugar Cooperation.
    Very safe with many apartments in this area. Supermarket and eateries (local and European food) nearby. UN offices and NGO offices are located with walking distance.
  • Yafet’s place is very good and in a great location, very clean! The communication between us and the host was great, very fast responses. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Addis Ababa for vacation/business.

    Sheldon2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Really liked the location. Yafet’s place is in a prime area about 2 minutes from the Prime minister’s palace, the Hilton Hotel and almost directly behind the Radisson Blue. The balcony overlooks the UNECA conference center and the view is a plus. There are 2 balconies in fact. However, the street is new and not paved yet, but due to all the pluses it’s an easy workaround. I am a teacher so it’s my job to grade hard but fair. I’ve given Yafet some personal suggestions. If he follows them, he’ll have one of the best Airbnb locations in Addis Ababa. Solid value.

    Andre2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • I did write a review earlier and saved it. I don’t know what’s going on with the system. I’ve been traveling a lot and we are still on our journey. Now, Yafet is a fantastic host and communicator. You will not be disappointed with the value of this Airbnb. I just hope it gets better and better.

    Andre2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We were highly satisfied with our stay. I appreciated Yafet accommodating my cousin in Addis to view the apartment prior to me booking. The apartment is spotless, the rooms spacious, and the beds super comfortable - plus the wi-fi is amazing, a rarity in Ethiopia. The quality of the cookware could be upgraded, but it served its basic purpose. For the price, we wish a house cleaner was included, but we ended up hiring one ourselves. The road leading to the apartment us unpaved and hard to navigate. However we were impressed by the water pressure and consistent availability of hot water for showers, which is always unpredictable in Ethiopia. We noticed the power went out only a couple times during our three week stay and it returned soon after. The stairway lights were broken and ultimately fixed, but it was a bit annoying to repeatedly ask to have it repaired as it presented a safety risk for us walking up flights of stairs in the dark. It’s a great location but the building is still under construction and the noise seemed to worsen with workers yelling and tools pounding in the mornings towards the end of our stay. I imagine once the building is complete and the road to the apartment is paved it’ll be even better. Lastly, we really appreciated the security guards monitoring the building, especially late at night. Overall this place was great and we would definitely recommend it.

  • A little tricky to find, but the host is communicative and there's someone on site to help at check-in. Very happy with our stay there!

    Dawud2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Yafet's apartment is in a great location, very clean and spacious. Also has excellent wifi which many hotels we stayed at did not! Note there are two king single beds (we had expected two kings) and a double. Very comfy stay!

  • Harerta was a very responsive and kind host. I arrived very late on Monday evening but she came to the place to check me in. She also lent me her SIM card and was proactive when issues (outside of her control) arose. It was nice to have my private bathroom and the house was very clean. Location of her apartment is also perfect if you are looking for somewhere close to UN (just a few minutes walking distance). I would definitely stay here again!

    Mona2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • the apartment is located in a very safe area and very convenient to access to bus station and other places. many big hotels nearby and at the street concern, nice inter bistro coffee and nice pizza restaurant. Harerta is very kind to give tips about Addis Ababa. her place is very comfortableto stay.

    Ahmed2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Room was clean and no bed bug. Wi-Fi works well. Safe. We do not offer water separately, but we advise you to buy water here at the reception desk. It is a place where foreign tourists do not come to visit, and it is possible to eat at a local restaurant at a local restaurant. If you ask taxi drivers to go to the Abyssinian Guesthouse, you know where.

    Jinhan2019-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Heanok was the best host anyone can get. He picked me up from the airport in the early am and was very helpful familiarizing me with the places around. Loved everything about Abyssinia guest house: the place is clean, the staff are very friendly and accommodating, very convenient location ( close to good restaurants, stores, night life, shopping places). Heanok is amazing and he always is looking for ways to make tenants feel at home. Highly recommend this place. Thank you guys!

    Asmait2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend this place, the staff was always helpful and really nice. :) I would come back for sure!!

    Ruben2018-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Abyssinia Guest House has an excellent location and is perfect for both short term and long term guests. It is in Bole near all the good restaurants and shops. Additionally, it is a great value as much of the other accommodation in this central district is quite pricey. It is directly across from a delicious Ethiopian restaurant and down the street from an excellent coffeeshop. I’d recommend this guest house to anyone looking for a good deal in Addis.
