I just returned from my 17th year of visiting Ethiopia during the summer. This time I stayed at the Kings Hotel. being a frequent visitor there, they treat me like a king. The staff is so friendly and will cater to any reasonable request. From shoe shine, clean laundry, make up the room, room service, coffee to my room, great...

I was shown into what was supposed to be a clean and ready room, but I don't think it had been cleaned at all. The floors were dirty to the point where they turned my feet black when walking around barefoot, and the bathroom exuded a constant low-grade foul smell. My bed looked like it had been slept in with...

I had booked this hotel a month before travelling on 23 March 2015. But when I arrived on 19 April 2015 I was told that they did not have any room. The Night Manager did not even bother to ask the name. The Night Manager then started telling me other hotels where I could go to.

Kings Hotel is located very close to the AU on one of the busy streets. What I like about the hotel is that they are constantly updating and improving the rooms. The staff are very helpful and the rooms are quite large. It is still a third world hotel with wobbly beds, but it is clean and secure. The Wi-Fi...

The best thing about this hotel is that it is walking distance from the AU Head Quarters and that it has Wi-Fi of reasonable speed. I stayed there for four nights and I think I got the worst room in the hotel because I was the last to check-in. The lights were deem and they could not repair/replace them. The...

we did enjoy our stay at Kings. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We were there for Ethiopian New Years and had a good time being invited to the coffee ceremony. Yes, I agree the hotel needs some maintenance, especially with leaky plumbing. The internet worked most of the time and most importantly it was near the people we...

I was attending a three day summit at the slick New Africa Union Complex and needed a hotel that would be within walking distance and my local contacts recommended the Kings Hotel.
