This is a cosy 2-bedroom house in compound full of trees and plants. It's in a lovely, quiet, leafy part of Addis near Italian Embassy with excellent walks from the house in nearby hills. The compound has a super-reliable guard looking after it 24/7 and friendly neighbours next door. There are plenty of local vegetable, meat and grocery shops, and big hotels and supermarkets are a taxi ride away. It is an old property with a few cracks in walls, etc. It is functional and cosy, but not modern!

We loved it! For those looking for an unpretentious and authentic experience in Addis; this is the place. The garden is also a very unexpected touch.

Bela is a great area. Simple 15-20m minibus ride to 6 or 4-Kilo, higher altitude than much of the city (so less smoggy), with rad close by hiking options and an awesome yard full of plants and trees. The house is basic, not new, but comfortable. No generator on the grounds,…

Stayed in William's place for three months and enjoyed the calm atmosphere in this friendly neighbourhood, only disturbed by the churches around that start praying sometimes very early in the morning. Shops for basic needs and public transport around. The house is not really…

The rooms are big enough but the bathroom is essential. The building need some rehabilitation. There are personal staff to be careful. For me was fine because very near the place I needed to go. The prayers of the churches are a bit noisy in the morning.
