It’s clean and WiFi did seem to work good. Not too far from airport.
Kind of far from tourist area and in a neighborhood that I don’t know how good or bad it is. Loud church chantings in the early morning. Not sure if Keba Guesthouse is the same ownership with Melala Bed and Breakfast.
The staff was really warm and friendly, they helped with getting us cabs and negotiating prices. I also enjoyed the food, it was very tasty and well priced. The room was clean and the facilities were very well maintained. I highly recommend Melala
Ethiopia has some challenges with internet connection and it is not always reliable. Although Melala accept payment by card, I would suggest that guests carry cash just to avoid getting disappointed when the connection fails.
This Guesthouse’s main selling point for me is that it is near some really good food options! The Mesti restaurant 3 min walk from here has an amazing Beyaynet & friendly staff. The incredible Mulmul bakery nearby in Togo St sells a large selection of pastries & bread. The cafe next to it does good meals & coffee (including a fasting macchiato (soy) if you don’t drink milk). Besides location, I had a second floor double room with attached bathroom. It was large and clean and had a balcony overlooking the city. Melala will also either pick you up or drop you off (not both) to/from the airport. I was picked up & thought the drop off was also complimentary & hadn’t reserved enough cash for the taxi they kindly arranged, but they just put the difference into the bill & I paid by card.
It is near a mosque which does the Azan (call to prayer) very loudly 5x a day, starting before dawn. I am used to this and an early riser, but if you are a light sleeper be aware of this. If you need good wifi to do work or call people on do not expect this either. I could not get a proper connection in my room or back down at reception the two days I was there & could never find anyone to ask if that is normal or just a glitch? The “hot” water in my room was never hot despite the tank being switched on. The water pressure was a mere dribble so made showering a quick cold experience!
They picked me up for free from the airport and always had a taxi waiting to drive me and pick me up in any part of town.
Nice staff, the airport shuttle is a bonus. Clean facilities.
