We highly recommend this B and B to anyone spending time in Addis. We were in Addis for work for a week before traveling around the country. We ended up coming back to Biruk for a few nights before flying out because we love it so much! The hosts are extremely hospitable and make you feel at home (we felt...

Very good option, with very nice owners. There are two buildings; the oldest one is more "authentic" and you are close to the family which owns the place. I arrived very early in the morning and they give me breakfast for free. Just one negative points: shuttle to airport is expensive (10 USD for a 5-minutes ride). But very good...

It was a bit crowded at home so we decided to spend our Addis holidays at Birku's. Being Ethiopian born, I didn't want to stay in an impersonnel hotel, I wanted a small private place where I would feel at home. Biruk B&B was awesome ! The guest house is quiet, clean & tidy, breakfast is awesome especially the Ethiopian...

This is the third time I've stayed here. Super convenient for the airport, in a very quiet location just off the main road. Easy to get into town, nice rooms round a small, flower-filled garden and an easy walk to a good Italian restaurant. But best of all are the owners, lovely, helpful people who just showcase the best of...

I stayed here for 3 nights, and it was very comfortable. The airport was very close, and there were many walkable places around the guest house. It's in a residential, embassy neighborhood and was very safe. I reserved a room with a shared bathroom, but there was rarely anyone else using the bathroom so it wasn't a problem. Delicious, hearty...

There's so much to write about Biruk B+B, all extremely positive. It was exactly what I hoped for: a place that made me feel at home, charming hosts and kitchen staff, easy access to various offices and tourist sites all over sprawling Addis. I'm so fortunate to have stayed there. 1. The location: Addis is busy, busy, with traffic snarling...

Etutu and her husband were amazing and gracious hosts. Breakfast was prepared fresh each day and sumptuous. The grounds are beautiful, walking distance to town and several very good restaurants.

Small B&B located in a quiet residential area of Addis but walking distance from the main Bole road where there are numerous stores, restaurants etc. The rooms are clean and very cosy, and the hosts and staff are wonderful and caring - it really feels like a home away from home. The breakfast was outstanding!
