Addis Regency Hotel Dec 06, 2013
This reasonably priced hotel in west-central Addis exceeded our expectations. We stayed here for one night after a 10 days tour of the south of Ethiopia.
This hotel is well built and maintained with a friendly and helpful staff, located near historic sites and churches reducing the need to drive in Addis traffic, which you want to avoid as much as possible. The building and grounds are well designed and impeccably maintained.
The location is okay - a walking distance to the Piazza, very well-known place in the city where you can walk to many of the best sights in Addis Ababa.
They have world class 24 hour service with a full bar and restaurant! They also have free internet and 24 hour room service.
The Deluxe rooms are pretty large with a balcony and the standard rooms are smaller but comfortable also. The beds were the best in Ethiopia with a great mattress, soft down pillows and a warm snugly down comforter.
The bathroom is clean and the shower is great were always hot which can be a luxury compared to other hotels in Ethiopia
Nice TV with some good channels, like BBC and Movie Action (but not a great variety).
The service in the whole hotel - no matter whether room/restaurant/front desk all the stuff are extraordinarily helpful. Most hotel claim to anticipate your needs, but these folks truly did.
Everyone from the cleaning personnel, doormen, guards, waiters, front desk and even the manager, Mack, always had smiles to greet us.
The food was very nice Very delicious meals at extremely reasonable prices. The portions were huge and we had no trouble finding something different to eat. They prepared everything from traditional Ethiopian meals, Italian dishes.
The breakfast was included in our rate. The only complaint I have about the breakfast could have some improvements: there aren't many options.
P.S (if you like Mash Potato, just ask for it - the perfect choice!!!) and I highly recommend the pasta.
The manager places great importance on service and guest comfort. He frequently interacts with guests and personally took care of any issues that arise. Mr. Mac the owner and the manager of the Hotel is the most generous Hotel Manager I ever seen in my life.
One last comment: the coffee made at the lobby bar on its vintage espresso machine may be the best I've had anywhere.
The hotel had such an easy-going atmosphere and if you are looking for a friendly, well-run and well-managed hotel with clean rooms and proactive owners, who will go out of their way to help, then this is the place for you. I whole heartily recommend it for future travelers to Addis Ababa.
