I too got the hotel booked by ET, it's not too bad, the staff are friendly enough, the room is nice, food was nice but not a large variety to choose from, it looks old fashioned on the inside (like a 1970s hotel), wifi is working fine, the key is unbelievably heavy (3-5kgs)

I stayed here while in transit with Ethiopian Airways. After arriving at the hotel we were told that there would be a buffet dinner served courtesy of the airline which was kind of them to do. The food was average quality but there wasn't enough quantity to feed bus loads of hotel guests as they arrived, they were constantly running...

Ethiopian Airlines puts its economy passengers here when they have to pay for your layover. Gold and Silver United cardholders get put up in the Nexus or Friendship. I got a free night, dinner and breakfast because my layover was 12 hours. Didn´t need a visa. Ethipoina Airlines has this down to a science. They even arrange transfers for you...

I had the misfortune of stopping in the Hotel De Loepol international in Addis Ababa to have a cup coffee and use the wifi. Big mistake on my part. The Wifi is the sorriest in the neighborhood. And they attempted to charge a tax of 15% , a service charge of 10% to which I agreed ,but then they also...

I was in town for a conference, and this was slightly cheaper than some of the other options. Not worth the savings. The internet in the hotel was only marginally functional, and found myself having breakfast at the intercontinental to check email in the morning. Feels like it would have been a spiffy place in the 1970s, but hasn't been...

We were put here by Ethiopian Airlines after they cancelled our connecting flight without informing us. Our room seemed clean, but worn/dated and some of the furniture was broken. The neighbourhood didn't feel safe to go for a walk to explore. We organized with the hotel staff for a taxi to go into town for a few hours, but when...

with my flight being cancelled and 24 hour layover, Ethiopian Airlines gave me a bunch of other "distressed travelers" a voucher for De Leopol. Like other reviewers have noted, the rooms were a bit dark, poorly light, not quite up to the standards most expect, but then again, I had just spent a few weeks in a very rural part...
