The hotel is right on Bole Road and very close to a lot of shops and restaurants. It's also not far from the airport and offers a free airport shuttle. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Clean but basic. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was good but served cold (like most hotels in Ethiopia. Slept well in clean and comfortable beds. Hotel close to shops and the airport. Step in the bathroom quite dangerous.

Pretty good wifi, decent food (and prompt room service). Lots of good restaurants in easy walking distance. They also have a gym that does the job and a free airport transfer. Clean, bright rooms, hot and strong water in the showers, and lots of free water every day. It's a quite nice place for an affordable price, and I always...

The hotel is very close to the airport, provides good breakfast. It is close to cafes, restaurants and super shops as well. Rooms are relatively small, the bathroom is small as well, but the hotel provides all necessary amenities.

This happened to be the first hotel we stayed in Ethiopia. My wife & I spent about a month between July and August 2015. I dare say the staff here are great and gave me a good general impression about Ethiopians. Always nice, warm and responsive. The rooms are fairly good & comfortable, one minus here is the occasional smell...

We returned to the Wassamar for two nights (separated by 10 days) last week. We have stayed at the hotel previously and knew what to expect. This is an excellent mid-level business hotel located conveniently on Bole Road. The hotel's management is topnotch, and the staff are friendly and efficient from the doormen to the front desk. The airport shuttle...

The only positive things I can find to say about this hotel is that the staff are friendly and helpful and that it is convenient for the airport with free transfers to and from. My room was dull and dingy - clean enough but tired looking. The bathroom is very strange. Quite small and yet with a big step which...

I stayed at this hotel for a week while working in Addis and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Right from the free airport pick up early in the morning to the drop off late at night a week later, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, with a comfy bed, good view, decent to channels and...

After endless searching for available hotels during the FFD conference in Addis, we found the Wassamar hotel. In general, the hotel amenities were satisfactory - rooms were clean, breakfast in the restaurant okay and the porters and security doormen very friendly. However, the bathroom is very tiny - you can just about turn around in there. My main gripe is...
