Stayed here for 2 nights upon arrival in Addis and another night before heading on to the Danakil area. Mr. Tedesse speaks excellent English and has two children in the States. The location felt safe and is close to the National Museum and the Ethnological Museum at the University, but is a bit aways from the shopping areas in Bole....

I stayed at Z Guest House for ten days, half in a single room, the other half in an apartment suite. By far, my experience in the apartment was better. The single room had a slight spider infestation, which was fixed by my shoe and a run to the store, but I could never sleep well there after seeing so...

We stayed at Z guest house as a group of 4 people, and shared the enormous apartment suite. It has a really spacious, comfortable living room, little kitchenette, bathroom and separate bedroom - all very clean and nice. Breakfast is brought to you each morning for you to eat at your own dining table and consists of bread, jam, tea/coffee,...

We stayed three nights at the Z Guest House, two nights when we first got to Addis and one night just before we left. It's a lovely, family-run establishment. We were met promptly at the airport both times through. The guesthouse is in the city but in a very quiet neighborhood. We did try another hotel on our third night,...

I stayed at Z Guest House for 3 days in their single suite. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The guest house is situated close to the National Museum and the lion park. The room was always kept clean. The breakfast served in the morning was a simple continental breakfast, but satisfactory. The Armenian restaurant close to the guest...

I stayed three weeks at the Z Guest House. I was conducting research at the National Museum and wanted to be somewhere within walking distance. I had a wonderful experience and will absolutely book again. I stayed in all three types of rooms (apt, en suite, and shared bathroom) and each one has access to wi-fi internet, satellite tv, and...

Some Americans I met at the airport introduced me to the Z Guest House in Addis Ababa and I thanked them for it. My old single room seemed a little dark at first but the longer I stayed the more I appreciated the amenities, the helpful staff, its peace and quiet and great location. I would gladly spend another week...

We've stayed twice at Z Guest House. Once November 2010 for a week and again June 2014 on and off for 2 weeks.

“The coziest rooms are in the main house - shared bath with the owners but super charming. Especially good if you're traveling alone.”
