I just returned from Addis Ababa, where I stayed at the AREQU Guesthouse. It was the perfect place for our team of ten people. We had plenty of space, delicious breakfasts, and met the best staff who took great care of us. Almaz, the owner, is beautiful inside and out and went out of her way to make sure we...

Our group of 10 stayed for over a week at the Arequ Guest house, and it was like being at home. Comfortable, beautiful, plenty of room for everyone, peaceful, convenient location, and a fabulous staff that went out of their way to accommodate us. We felt like family in no time, and would highly recommend staying with them.

Ms Mitikou and the staff at Arequ were extremely helpful in organising the perfect 24h layover in Addis for us. The airport pickup went smoothly, our tastefully decorated suite had an amazing view of Addis, the breakfast pancakes and coffee were delicious and Ms Mitikou arranged a driver for us for the day, who took us on an really cool...

We had only one night at this beautiful cozy guesthouse but enjoyed it a lot. The architecture and interior of Arequ is very unique and creates a pleasant atmosphere which is brought to perfection by lovely host Almaz. She is so helpful in organizing drivers, providing good restaurant tips and so forth. We really enjoyed the tea time with you,...

I would like to write billions of things about this place and the wonderful people who makes this place unique.. but I don't think I have enough room here :-) You can feel immediately home and at the same time in a discreet atmosphere.

I visit Addis roughly two times a year for work and almost always stay at Arequ. The people are amazing, the rooms are cozy and clean, it is close to the airport. I can't say enough positive things about this little haven.

I only stayed for one night at Arequ but wish I could have stayed longer. The staff were very welcoming and the rooms and communal areas were spacious and well decorated. I was in fact the only person staying at the guest house on the night, yet was still cooked a lovely breakfast with around 8 dishes! To round off...

I am from the U.S. so quality and style is a must. This place took the cake...! When I say that, I really mean it. I went there to marry my fiancee of 4 plus years.

This guest house is a gem and a must stay in Addis Ababa! We considered larger hotels but ultimately settled on Arequ because of the glowing reviews on trip advisor. It's the perfect mixture of boutique hotel and bed and breakfast. First, you get 5-star service because Almaz and her staff treat you like family. She even drove us to...
