I love this place. It was so safe. It even has a safe. A few times I forgot a valuable outside the safe and house cleaning came while I was out and never touched the valuables. They are very honest workers. All staff was very respectable at all times and everyone always looks good. They are all well groomed and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious everyday with a variety of buffet and fresh juice, coffee and tea with hot milk. French toast, pancakes, eggs all styles change daily from tiffed boiled eggs to scrambled with veggies. Gym was satisfactory- had all the weights and mirrors and machines required. Bike and Eliptical could use an upgrade. Also could use music in the gym. I had to work out with my cellphone beats. Didn’t try the sauna but it was always available 24 hours like the gym. So cool. Room service for food was not more expensive- e and my husband were completely happy here very good for all families or alone. Never noisy. Normal noise from outside nightlife could be blocked out with a low volume program with the television service in room. Good variety of channels nothing t all offensive. Christian or Muslim or meat everywhere was halal - no pork anywhere. Food so delicious and fruit shakes mmmmmmmm Bye Ethiopian Adventure. We Loved this Country and stay at Lobelia 5stars

Stayed here twice for overnight stops in Addis. The hotel was on point with ensuring i had a shuttle ride both ways to the airport with a quick email. They even had the free breakfast buffet open 30 minutes early to ensure i had food before i had to fly out. Had dinner there once, (curry chicken) and it was amazing. Clean rooms, very nice staff. I really had nothing to complain about. I would definitely stay again!

The staff was very nice and accommodating. They provided shuttles to/from the airport. The food was very good. The hotel was next door to a church and the music was amazing! Super close to the airport. I would stay there again.
