This was my 2nd stay at Nexus, "prescribed" by my employer, an international company. The hotel is not so easy to find, about 5 km from the airport and city centre in Gerji industrial area. Taxi drivers take chance from the slightly remote location and charge 200-250 ETB for a trip of 4-5 km! During my 1st stay in September,...

I stayed at the Nexus Hotel for almost two weeks during a trip to Addis Ababa for work. The hotel was well-appointed and comfortable and close to the Bole International Airport. When you arrive at the airport and leave customs, there is a large stand that the Nexus Hotel runs from which you can request a shuttle (though I booked...

I spent 1 night in this hotel during a stopover between 2 Ethiopian airlines flights. The room I was given was confortable, well equipped and with proper amenities in the bathroom. Having arrived rather late I didn't partake in the dinner. Breakfast was excellent. Staff were kind and helpful. The only negative is that there was no Wifi in the...

On my way to Nairobi via Addis Ababa, my plane had to be grounded in Addis Ababa due to technical issues caused by some birds in the air. I was forced to overnight in Addis Ababa and continue the next day. The airline, taking full responsibility, placed me in Nexus Hotel near the airport. I had never been into Addis...

By Addis standards a reasonable mid range hotel. My room was on a 'non smoking floor' (3rd) but had a distinct smell of smoke when I entered. Wifi is very flakey and at its best nothing like 'high speed', but internet in Ethiopia is always difficult. Mattress was incredibly squishy and I left with serious back pain. Breakfast was basic...

I stayed at the Nexus for a small conference in April. The rooms were nice, although the first was just too smokey to stay in. The food was very nice and the service well above average for Addis. Something that stands out is that they have a very good backup generator that came on to keep the show running when...

My first trip to Addis so I dont have any comparators but compared to similar level hotels I have stayed at elsewhere in Africa the Nexus is pretty good. The rooms are clean and the fittings in good condition (I am guessing it is quite new). I didnt experience the wifi problems that other reviewers reported. The restaurant has a...

Intermitent wifi, marshmallow matresses, noisy music venue next door, lack of a fitness centre and distance to restaurants will make your business trip miserable. Sky bar was pleasant enough if you could turn a deaf ear to expletive riddled American rap blaring out.
