The Yaya Village hotel has the capacity for 30 guests and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. Guests can enjoy a view of the mountains and the sounds of birds from every bedroom.
The Hotel's serene location in the lush Entoto foothills on the outskirts of the city, just a short 30-45 minute drive into Addis, gives guests access to the city without losing the comfort of the Ethiopian countryside.
