Terrible experience with an unfriendly welcome, non english speaking staff, dirty hotel, terrible bed, bathroom deplorable, overpriced, non existent service, breakfast very poor. All in all a no-go location for the offered price of 45$, no more than 15$ for budget travels, and that is not even worth it!!

I and few of my friends visited this hotel in last July. Don't get tricked by the name. It's merely a 2 star hotel. On the first night there my friend's bed broke down and room had to be changed next morning. Pros: it's cheaper compared to other hotels on Bole Road.

The hotel is near the Airport and at the Airport Street (bole street). The staff are good and happy. The room is specious. However there are issues that you don't like, the noisy surrounding due to the terrible window profiles and installation. The mattress is very hard and makes sleeping much difficult in addition to the noise. The bathroom is... More

Mistakenly thinking this hotel was in someway affiliated with the internationally reknowned brand, I had the most regretful hotel experience of my life at the Meridian Addis. Having lied about the price of a room over the phone, reception staff insisted that I pay an additional $20 in tax on the room price. Annoyed by this blatant dishonesty, and shabby... More

Caution - the guys at Bole International Airport promise that they have Credit Card facilities. This is not the case. While I was on transit, I had huge issues them sorting out the payment as I had no cash. They caused a huge and intimidating hassle at the airport and forcing me not to take my flight. I "payed" them... More
