GT Guest House is an oasis in Addis Ababa, where you will feel like Lord of the manor. The customer service was exceptional! Wonderful breakfast, spacious room, off the main street so it is nice in quiet. The only very minor downside is the location, which isn't great, but not terrible. About 5 km from most of the tourist sites.

We had a wonderful stay with Lee at GT Guest House. The rooms are large and clean and having use of the kitchen and living room is very handy. The breakfasts were some of the best we had in Ethiopia and the location is central and not too hard to get just about anywhere.

This was such a comfortable and friendly place to stay. There were four of us sharing the three bedroom suite - it was perfect - clean, comfortable and spacious. Lee was really helpful too. Breakfast was great. There's not that much nearby but Lee was always happy to arrange transport (and because it's just off the main road, it was...

We were in Ethiopia for nine weeks with our school aged children. The first week we stayed at another guesthouse, which was lovely, but not well-suited for a long stay with children. The second week we went on a tour of northern Ethiopia and for the remaining 7 weeks, we were at GT Guest House (with one 5 day exception,...

Everything at the GT Guest House was perfect.

The beds were comfortable and well kept. The complimentary breakfasts were delicious and different every morning. The staff were...

I was impressed by the GT Guesthouse before we'd even arrived in Addis Ababa. The manager, Lee (Lewam) was efficient and helpful in her communication with us from the beginning. She promised to help organise for my Ethiopian-born daughter to have her hair done in true Ethiopian style and forwarded information about activities we might enjoy and told us about...

I stayed here with my girlfriend in April 2013. It was my first time staying in any form of guest house accommodation but GT Guest House met all my expectations and then some!

It is hard to say enough good things about GT. I have stayed in several guesthouses, backpackers, and budget hotels throughout East and Southern Africa and none have come close to the service or value for money of GT. Great location, staff is wonderful, and everything is top notch: rooms, wifi, showers, electricity, food, airport pickups. Probably the best thing...
