I was on a photography trip and this is the hotel my group stayed in the day we arrived in Addis Ababa and an extra night the day before our departure. It was about five minute away from the airport and they have a shuttle. Breakfast is included in the rate and there's a breakfast room on the 5th floor.... More

I spent 3 days in Sadula Lodge the last time I was in Addis. The rooms (especially the bed) is very comfortable although there were a lot of stains on the carpet. Very good hot shower. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. And the location is very central. Breakfast was ok but there wasn't a great variety of options: tea/coffee, toast,... More

The Hotel is well located, in a quiet locality close to the airport. The hotel serves breakfast but does not have a restaurant or room service. Good eating places are there close by. Rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. Hot water is available - there are geysers in every room. Breakfast though not a great spread is good... More

I chose this place so that I could sit and work during a three-week work trip to Addis without any distractions or concerns. I liked how there were no variables to consider, because it is clean, predictable, decent breakfast, good wireless, and close to amenities. The down comforter on the bed was the best during cool nights. I would stay... More

Throughout, the service in English was quite good, and the owner very accommodating. After a chat with him, I was able to store my extra luggage free of charge... More

Great hotel if you compare price to quality of other hotels in Addis. Clean, friendly, good service. No big lobby or restaurant, but not really necessary with the Bole area and Friendship building nearby. Only the breakfast is poor. They are understaffed there so you have to ask every morning for the same basics like cups, etc.

We used their conference room facilities for a last-minute meeting. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and they provided the facilities in a very professional manner and at a good price. Unfortunately the rooms were full otherwise we would have prefered to stay there. They showed us the rooms and they seemed really nice, with a balconny. The surroundings... More

This is a good quality hotel (not a lodge) rating about 3* relative to other hotels in Addis. One big problem is that the doors to the rooms do not have any rubber stop gaps so slamming doors throughout the night is a problem. It doesn't matter what level you are on, the slamming doors echoe through the corridoors. It... More
