We can only agree with the previous reviews. Genet's Guest House is like a home in Addis. We stayed here at the beginning and the end of our journey through Ethiopia with our children. It was like an island of tranquility in a very busy, pre-Easter Addis. The house is beautiful artistically designed and very, very clean. We have been...

So I am late with my review but there is no time like the present. The review entitled "Good Place, bad nosy owner" forced this!!!!!! There are usually three sides to a story and in this particular case I would love to hear the other two. Most reputable hotels DO NOT allow guests in bedrooms. I had a wonderful stay...

One of the highlights of our trip was staying with Genet in her lovely guesthouse. The room was wonderful, the common areas are welcoming and comfortable, the food is delicious and Genet is fantastic! Can't say enough good things about this place! Taxi to and from the airport was reliable and easy and a wealth of information is available about...

We felt really safe and comfortable here from the moment we arrived from the airport. Very welcoming, clean and enjoyable with a great sitting area to relax in. Delicious breakfast and nice shower. Everything you could want from a guest house in Addis! Only snag - a bit far from the centre but close to the airport.

We had a really wonderful stay at Genet's guest house, I would highly recommend. We had a very special trip to Addis and she became one of the reasons why it was so special. The beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water; the cooking was delicious, as was the coffee. And, Genet was so hospitable. We had a wonderful stay...

In a nutshell: The host Genet (who lived in the US for a long time) is an amazing person, happy to help with anything you need; she was waiting for me with a smile twice at the airport. The food was excellent. The décor is extremely pleasant, the bed was comfy. You will feel very welcome and relaxed here. I...

Genet the owner made you feel like you were best friends house. She was warm, gracious, flexible and understanding. She gave us insight into local culture, where to shop and arranged transportation. Additionally her home cook meal was the best I had while in Eithiopia. There is not other place to stay! Such a beautiful and inexpensive alternative to chain...
