Damu is well placed on the Bole Road and is closer to most business offices. For vegetarians Damu is also placed closer to one of the best indian restaurants in town "Sangam". Internet connection is always good at Damu except for when the city's telecom provider plays a spoil sport. Rooms / Bathrooms are clean and spacious. Damu also provides...

The DAMU was a great place to stay. The cost was very reasonable. The hotel is located in a great location. I felt safe everyday at the hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly. The food was very reasonably priced.

We stayed at Damu when my sister adopted her beautiful baby. It was simple but fantastic. A crib for the baby, a brand new kettle for water, a stocked mini bar, and so many helpful smiling people in the restaurant and at the front desk and at the front door. The neighbourhood is great and we always felt very safe....

On checking in at the Damu, I was issued with a key to the safety deposit box in my room and duly stowed my valuables there. Less than 24 hours later, around $500 had been taken by somone who, without forced entry, was able both to enter my room and the box. The hotel was not able to find the...

We stayed at the Damu Hotel for one night upon arriving in Addis before we began a week-long tour of Ethiopia. We chose it because it was reasonably priced and located in a good area, just off the main road coming from the airport. Although the room was somewhat small (with the ubiquitous twin beds that get pushed together to...

Greetings, I stayed at the Damu Hotel in April of 2006, and it was lovely. I was scheduled to stay at the Hilton, but a taxi driver told me about this place, and I was floored at the high level of quality that it had for the very inexpensive price. I am headed to Addis again in October, and I...

We stayed for one night coming from Zanzibar, where hotels generally have a low standard. So, it was very nice to come to a clean, refreshing and spacious room with fresh bathroom, everything working! Stuff was most welcoming, keen and helpful. We got a lot of assistance from the receptionist to find the best city tour - with a bus...

I stayed at the Damu Hotel in June 2006, only a few months after it opened. Having moved there after a couple of nights at the over-priced Addis Hilton, I was pretty impressed. Since I was doing business in the Bole area of Addis, the Damu's location was very convenient. And the cleanliness, typical hotel ammenities, and service were all...

Stayed 4 nights Jan 2007. I travel for work and this was my first trip to Addis and I chose the Damu based on the previous review and the fact that I did not fancy staying at the Hilton or Sheraton. In general the hotel was okay. The staff are very friendly, the location is good as you can walk...
