Broken windows, exposed wires, faulty circuits, broken lamps & TVs, broken elevators, broken springs in beds, cold breakfast, power outtages, intermittent wifi. I can't understate my disappointment. This was the rudest, most filthy, regrettable hotel during our stay in Addis--or in my life. Mexico square is extremely unsafe. A thief attempted to throw the door to our car open and...

Nothing much to say, the good days are long gone: Overpriced, lack of custumer service, noisy (minibus concentration), outdated in every way Hard to find anything to praise the hotel for apart from the central location.

Nothing exactly special about the hotel but then again, it is in Ethiopia which isn't exactly renowned for 5 star accommodation.

We just spent 5 nights at the Wabe Shebelle while in Addis getting ready for a Habitat for Humanity build in Debre Berhan. The hotel is a bit dated, but the excellent staff more than makes up for it. Very friendly front desk and security staff, great restaurant, and the room was always kept clean by the excellent housekeeping staff....

Seems to be builtin several sections so thing overall room quality is the luck of the...

Got put up here on business and regretted it the night I got there. Room is spacious but hotel dodgy. Breakfast ok but the bed was out of shape, the tv worked if you held the cable to it and the remote wasnt working and I never saw it again when I asked the staff to replace it. Didnt have...
