Hotels in Addis Ababa

Noisy, vibrant, and surrounded by beautiful scenery, Addis Ababa is sure to shatter any preconceptions you have about Ethiopia. Whether you’re passing through en route to the historic North Ethiopia, or planning a longer holiday in the city itself, Skyscanner can help you to find the perfect base in Addis Ababa.

Addis Ababa is home to over three million people, and is a massive urban sprawl chock full of colour and contrast. There are important museums and cathedrals, where you can visit the skeleton of Lucy (the oldest hominid skeleton) and pay your respects to Selassie (an Ethiopian emperor worshipped by Rastafarians). The largest market in Africa thrums with life, while the numerous coffee shops offer some respite from the chaos around you. If you’re planning a trip to Ethiopia, Addis is definitely not to be missed.

There’s a great variety of accommodation available in Addis Ababa. Global hotel brands can be found clustered around the embassies in the Kazanchis business district, providing lots of familiarity and home comforts for those who have never visited Ethiopia before. On the other hand, adventurous travellers should look for accommodation near Piazza. This district of town is famous among backpackers, and although it’s a little rough around the edges it’s a great place to be if you want to save money and meet plenty of like-minded people.
