The hotel is very close to the airport, provides good breakfast. It is close to cafes, restaurants and super shops as well. Rooms are relatively small, the bathroom is small as well, but the hotel provides all necessary amenities.

This happened to be the first hotel we stayed in Ethiopia. My wife & I spent about a month between July and August 2015. I dare say the staff here are great and gave me a good general impression about Ethiopians. Always nice, warm and responsive. The rooms are fairly good & comfortable, one minus here is the occasional smell...

We returned to the Wassamar for two nights (separated by 10 days) last week. We have stayed at the hotel previously and knew what to expect. This is an excellent mid-level business hotel located conveniently on Bole Road. The hotel's management is topnotch, and the staff are friendly and efficient from the doormen to the front desk. The airport shuttle...

The only positive things I can find to say about this hotel is that the staff are friendly and helpful and that it is convenient for the airport with free transfers to and from. My room was dull and dingy - clean enough but tired looking. The bathroom is very strange. Quite small and yet with a big step which...

I stayed at this hotel for a week while working in Addis and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Right from the free airport pick up early in the morning to the drop off late at night a week later, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, with a comfy bed, good view, decent to channels and...

After endless searching for available hotels during the FFD conference in Addis, we found the Wassamar hotel. In general, the hotel amenities were satisfactory - rooms were clean, breakfast in the restaurant okay and the porters and security doormen very friendly. However, the bathroom is very tiny - you can just about turn around in there. My main gripe is...

This hotel was fine for what I needed. It was very convenient for the airport and the free shuttle service was good (once it arrived!) the wi-if worked consistently and the TV in the room was a bonus. There was a bit of a nasty smell at times in my room which I would have lost the stomach for on...

This hotel has a high level of customer focus. Not fancy but efficient. Close to airport has a shuttle to airport. Clean room. The only issue is lack of AC at rooms. Only fans are available upon request. Pls ssk for a panoramic room at the back.

I have spent some 4 days at this hotel in official business. It has a good location close to the airport. The hotel's reception is located on the second floor and there are very friendly security staff that are quite helpful. The room rates are a bit expensive (some 80 usd/night) for Addis terms and you get in return some...
