Lovely place with fantastic service! It's not much to look at from the outside, but the accommodations were top notch. More importantly, our hostess Tigi was very kind and charming and made us feel right at home. A lovely breakfast (with accommodation for food allergy) served right in our apartment was a nice bonus.

Really nice find -- rooms are cozy but nice, breakfast is great, location is central, and staff were incredibly friendly (even invited us to join them for a cousin's wedding celebration going on in the guesthouse courtyard one afternoon during our stay). The guesthouse is about 2k from Meskel Square -- a great place for a morning run! -- and...

My friend and I stayed with Lee, TG and the team last fall and couldn't have been more pleased with our time there. Lee was very helpful in planning for our stay ahead of time with email communication. Our pick up at the airport was a breeze and of course, TG was extremely attentive to anything we needed. Extra tea...

we stayed here for about a week and loved it. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious and more than adequate. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Surprisingly there was not much noise from the neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again.

Hello - GT Guesthouse impressed me start to finish, through airport transfers, incredible meals, laundry service, and arranging a guide service for my two days in Addis on my first visit to Ethiopia. The management was extremely responsive to questions before and during my visit. The food was almost too good - I was heading on for trekking in Rwanda...

This guest house is an incredible find in Addis and was the perfect place for a two and half week stay while working in the city. All the accommodation is spotlessly clean, quiet and well furnished. The staff are efficient, polite and like many other reviews here say, amenable to every need. It was a real relief as a solo...
