In the Neighborhood

One of the pleasures of staying at Jazly  is observing Addis life in the vibrant Gerji neighborhood.    It is a delight to walk around the to catch a glimpse of daily life.  

In addition to seeing herders with their sheep, goats and cattle, you will notice children playing games, residents going about their daily business, and plenty of local vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables, fragrant spices, and house wares.

 Within five minutes walking distance there are small shops where basic groceries including fresh vegetables, fruits, meats and dairy products can be purchased. 

Location:    We are located near Jackros in the Gerji area of Addis Ababa,, Bole Sub-City, less than 5 KM from the Bole International Airport.  Visit the Contact Us page for a map of our location.

Weather:  Addis Ababa is between 7,000 to 8,500 feet above sea level (2,200-2,600 meters).  As a result, many visitors are surprised to learn that it can be quite chilly in the evenings and mornings year round.   Because of the high altitude, temperatures can vary widely throughout the day.  It is recommended to dress in layers as it can be quite hot during the day and quite cold at night.
