I stayed here 4 times for a total of 5 nights over 2 weeks recently. It's definitely not a five diamond place, but its not too bad either. And it's affordably priced compared to the hotels downtown. One the plus side: The staff are very willing to help with anything you need. The location is closer to the airport than... More

I stayed at this hotel twice during the month of June (when the temperature is fairly mild). The hotel is off the beaten track and away from downtown and a lot of the hustle and bustle. It is located across for a large church and it is located on a busy street. The staff is very polite and friendly. The... More

As other reviwers have said, don't expect this to be great. Its quite grubby and run down. Wifi goes on and off, half the hotel is quite noisy. I'd be happy if it cost 1/2 the price, but for what it basically a reasonable local hotel, it trys to give the appearance and price tag of an internationally competitive hotel,... More

I am currently staying at the Beshale, and just must write this review. I stayed here before, and it was just as bad, but as I am traveling for work my colleagues in Ethiopia were in charge of the reservation and it is too late to change now. I will not be staying here again, and as it is 10pm,... More

Other than cockroaches and my partner suffering food poisoning because they washed and recycled a dish instead of serving fresh food....I had a business meeting sabotaged by the waiter and the night manager, because... after midnight you are not allowed to use the lobby!!! In addition over 12 days of stay the internet worked only 45 minutes all in all.... More

Nothing special, a slightly run down western style hotel on the E side of Addis. Not ideally placed for tourist stuff but Addis is small enough to allow you to get anywhere by cab in under 20 minutes. WiFi throughout in theory, but in practice only the 6 rooms clustering around the router on each floor get any signal -... More

In my opinion this hotel is a good lesson that building a 4* hotel building is not enough to grant it 4 stars. Service is really important, and from my experience (one day, but it was enough) there is a lot of work left to do. The mindset of all staff did not live up to standarts of 4 stars... More
