We stayed in the hotel just for few hours as we had stop over in Addis Ababa ans it is a hotel provided by Ethiopian airlines. We had breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is nothing special and for lunch you have few option. Room is clean but furniture are not good quality.

The staff was very friendly and professional. Rooms was nice and very clean. The wifi was very fast. It was my second time at this hotel, and would not hesitate to stay there on my next vacation. Well worth the price.

It's just a average hotel with generally transit passengers from Ethiopian airlines. Rooms are just okay. Breakfast is not upto the mark. The narrow roads are full of mud and clay. Reception is helpful. The hotel lacks facilities. The location is good. Prices are higher through booking.com . Overall below average experience.

A huge disappointment and a poor reflection on Ethiopian Airways. I stayed at the Hotel as an overnight guest on an Ethiopian Airways Layover and had a terrible experience. Uncomfortable room, cold shower and terrible meals made for a forgettable experience.

This hotel was offered as a transit option by Ethiopian Airlines. The room I got was spacious BUT that was about it. It was on the first floor, just above the dish washing area. All night the maids were cleaning the restaurant dishes and making noise. The hotel had no air-conditioning and no fan. We could not open the windows...

This hotel is very old and tired. Wi-fi works half the time, staff doesn't know how to restart the router when it hands, they call outside IT people which may take a day or two to come over and do what could be done in a matter of seconds. No international TV channels. You need to walk the road shown...

I had missed a flight and was given hotel accommodation in Empire Addis. Hotel offers free with fi. However the rooms do have neither an AC nor fan. Location of the hotel is good. Restaurant offers good food. Hospitality was good. Could make it better.
