Had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel. The rooms are stunning and I felt absolutely at home. The deco and atmosphere are great and safety isn’t an option it’s compulsory. And the recommendations given by the staff were great

We ran an event at the hotel. Staff were extremely accommodating, efficient and friendly. Facilities are getting a bit faded, was probably cutting edge back in 2010.

Place seems rather expensive for what it is. Apparently the competition is twice the price, so perhaps they have found their niche. Food is plentiful and of good quality.

The hotel is ideally located, 5min from anything that can be of interest to anyone visiting Addis. The building is impressive on the outside with white glove butlers at the entrance ready to welcome you in. Other than that, this is just another of those overpriced overhyped places that have been cropping up all over city in the past year or two. Where to start?
Room: traces of wear and tear, room/toilet lights not working, we had to call the tech service 3 times during our stay. Same thing with the tv they had to replace the tuner at some point to make it work.
Service: that of a European 2-star hotel . A bit amateurish. They seem to bank on smiling in lieu of good service. You will be served plenty of “sir” and “m’am” “downtown abbey” style if you like that sort of thing.
Restaurant/buffet: limited. Very limited. For a 12$+ in-room breakfast expect 2-3 croissant, a glass of juice and a cup of coffee/thee.
Laundry: expensive. dry-cleaning a pair of trousers will set you back 12$. They ironed dirty trousers instead of dry-cleaning them first. I ended up with permanently stained clothes and a lousy excuse.
Reception: Helpful. This is the only plus imho.
Summing up this is a 2-star hotel by European/international standard, posing as a 5-star.
Ps: They show all sorts of certificate of excellence badges from TripAdvisor, Booking... at their front office. The figures are far from accurate.

To Ethiopian / Addis Ababa standards, this is one of the best hotels around. Room rates in Addis are to European standards but quality is not. The Golden Tulip is quite allright though and certainly the best choice for staying in Addis. Close to airport and right in the middle of Bole, the city’s entertainment area.

The hotel was exceptionally comfortable. What makes this hotel is the level of friendliness of the team. Good wifi good food and great coffee. Really good central location which suited my needs. Will be back and felt very safe as a female traveler.

Room Tip: Just be a little careful of the office chairs in the room a little too heavy so fell of it !! User error
