I was there for 2 weeks not knowing that there are multiple places call Lucy Guesthouse. The sign said B&B but there was no B&B. The shower stall is extremely small and water goes all over the floor. The beds from what you can see from the reviews are terrible. They need to invest into new mattresses. There was no...

We stayed here for one night before traveling around in the country, and return after to stay another two nights. We were here at 24th of December, and had a little Christmas celebration of our own, and the staff put on some music for us without us asking, which was really nice. The rooms are clean, although some doorknobs missing,...

Staff is very smart, as everywhere in Ethiopia. Room are correct but bathroom very aged. They need to be upgraded and sometimes just fixed. Breakfast is very basic ( eggs, tea or coffee and juice: no milk available). They do not have electricity generator, so if electricity is gone (ofter happens in Addis) you have no hot water for shower....

The airport pick up is such a luxury, it's a quick trip made in a nice taxi. The rooms are clean and comfortable in a safe neighborhood. The staff could not have been more friendly ! Thank you Lucy Guest House.

I loved staying at the Lucy Guest House. This was my first time experiencing Ethiopia and my 10 night stay at Lucy's was wonderful. The staff is warm & friendly and very trustworthy. The rooms are clean, the location is safe and secure and the compound grounds are nicely kept. The location is great - close to the airport, walking...

I spent 5 nights at Lucy's Guest House. It was my first time in Ethiopia and I couldn't have chosen a better place. It is within walking distance of one of the most famous restaurants ( Yod Abbysinia Cultural restaurant), a big mall (Edna mall) and so many other restaurants and shops. You can walk there by yourself. I would...

Lucy Guest House is well worth a stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I had a room with a private bathroom and it was lovely. The people who work here are extremely nice and helpful. The location is also good, and safe. The only drawback is that it is a bit pricey -$50 a night. Other than that, it's...

The room wasn't very big, but it was ok. The bathroom was very basic. The service was nice to us, so no complaints about that. I'm not so familiar with prices in Addis, but we paid 50$, which I found a bit too pricey for the quality.

“Check the water pressure, the hot water might not get there and just be lukewarm and the nights can get very cold in Ethiopia. Also try to book the upstairs rooms they are warmer.”
