Bole Ambassador Hotel: Convenient to the Airport
The main attraction of the Bole Ambassador Hotel is its location, a mere two- to five minute drive from the airport. In addition, its suites are spacious; it offers wifi throughout its buildings; its restaurant, including its complementary breakfast, is decent; and its rates are well below comparable Addis Ababa lodgings.
The staff is friendly and helpful, providing me with an AC adapter the moment I asked for one. The hotel has a gym and a spa, though I didn't try either of them.
Upon arriving at Bole International, I was met at the hotel's kiosk in the airport and promptly taken to the hotel. The van also delivered me back to the airport on my departure.
Given that flights leave for Gonder, Lalibela, and Axum early in the morning, the hotel's location is a real plus for people flying to any of those historically and culturally interesting cities.
