I have stayed at this place with my gf and we have liked the politeness and hospitality of their staff. The room we have booked was quite clean and spacious. I give this place 4/5 as one of the best places to stay in Addis if you have a budget of $50 a day. Despite our satisfaction, we were uncomfortable... More

Have stayed here a few times now but I won't be doing so again because there are better options nearby. The main issue is that there is no dining room, restaurant at all. Not sure how you can call a place a guest house without this. Breakfast is brought to your room, which is charming on the first day but... More

I stayed at Molla for almost 4 weeks now and I feel like this is my home in Addis. The rooms have an individual look, every room looks a bit different but they are all well furnitured and stylish. The bathroom is small, but clean. There is also a small kitchen in each room with a cooking plate, fridge and... More

We stayed here for two months and enjoyed it very much. Clean, good service, efficient reception, great location next to the airport and lots of shopping / restaurants. Only minor problem is that it can be noisy depending on the room, and the breakfast is not great. But you have German Bakery right below which is the best cafe in... More

The lovely thing in Addis is you can choose between different places to stay. From 5 stars hotel 220US/d and down to a guest house with 20 US/d. just you had to make the right move and select why you need to stay there and how you could get in and out at any convenient time.

Seriously, I checked the reviews and I checked the site and everything seemed lovely! I was very happy with our choice. I had asked about a king size bed and I was told I would be given one, and that the room was spacious. Neither I believe was true. Forget about the bed - our room was small, tired (bathroom... More

Great value for money; wonderful people! One of the best deals in Addis! The staff are attentive and polite. The food is very good and fresh. Breakfast is especially good. The rooms are clean and kept that way. The location is convenient though but not quiet. Taxis pass by all day. It is within walking distance of the vibrant Chechnya... More
