    The staff practically fell over themselves to show me a room. They made me feel very welcome. From a distance it looks like an anonymous high rise tower block, but then you see the flowers spelling out the name of the hotel just before you go inside. Nothing seems to be the slightest problem for the staff. I was shown a room and it was HUGE. It had the largest balcony I have ever seen in a hotel anywhere in the world. The living rooms had nice furniture and a refrigerator and TV. The bed was queen sized and it looked more like a suite than a room. The price of $79 a night is the best in its price range except the Ghion which has a pool (although the Ghion is bad about losing reservations).

    You also get breakfast, free internet, free newspapers in the lobby and fantastic staff. The restaurant is on 2 levels with a waterfall in the middle (pictured). It also has a lovely wood panelled bar – also pictured. There are shared taxis just outside the door for quick and cheap rides to Meskel Square, Mercato and Piazza.

    I was very impressed and made to feel extremely welcome. I would recommend this hotel.

  • Decent place in Addis


    I had a nice stay at the Queen of Sheba Hotel in Addis Ababa. The hotel is pleasant and all the facilities are reasonable compared to other hotels we saw during our time. The staff is helpful and professional, and the rooms are suites, some with views of the mountains above Addis. Breakfast is included in the price, although it is not much of anything, and a shuttle bus is also included. The location of the hotel is relatively convenient, and the hotel is quiet if you get a room away from the streetside. It is a bit overpriced but was definitely better than other hotels we saw in Addis with the exception of the much much more expensive Sheraton. It was $129/night for a double including breakfast and airport transfers.

    Directions: On the main road heading East out of town
