In “Amare’s house” you’ll feel like you’re outside when you're relaxing in our beautiful house thanks to its high skylight roof. All our rooms are well designed, comfortable, clean, secure and well-equipped so that you can enjoy your holiday or business trip.
The house is situated near the old airport area called 'Mekanisa' from where you can reach shopping malls, cafes, traditional and international restaurants, fast food, juice & yogurt bars, and traditional coffee places in a short distance.

The space
To give our home a semi-modern, semi-rustic look, I personally designed our place by using the old furniture of my parents that we recycled and mixed with modern local wood with the help of a talented craftsman.
The house is inside a family compound separated by a grilled fence where my neighbors are my parents and my sister’s Ethio-French family. My sister’s family has two guard dogs on their side of the house but they don’t mind if you let them come to our side if you love spending time with dogs. We also produce our own eggs from the chickens in our chicken coop.

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Our place is located five minutes from the old airport compound –one of the biggest hubs of the international community in Addis Ababa. You can find there almost all services that you would need during your trip, from diverse international restaurants (Arab, Italian, Korean), to hair salons, spas, gyms, traditional dances and foods, shopping malls, local movie theaters, fast food etc…
I also own a local yogurt bar accessible at a walking distance from the house.
At a walking distance from our house, you will find the ZOMA Museum which is an environmentally conscious art institution and that includes a gallery, library, children center, edible garden, elementary school, art and vernacular school, amphitheater and a museum shop.
The best burger joint in town, Sishu burger, is also located 7 minutes from our place, as well as the headquarters of the African Union.
For those who plan to go out of the city, you can access easily the ring road from our place and take one of the 5 exits of Addis Ababa.
As a reference, we’re located:
- 8 min drive from ICS (International Community School)
- 22 min drive from Bole International Airport
- 20 min drive to Bole Area
- 20 min drive to the old town of Piazza.The yogurt
