Well they try. It's not very fancy. Rooms are good and there is hot water and Wifi. Found time in the Gym and Spa worth it given the cost. Try getting a hot stone massage, they are really good. There are ongoing constructions hence a little noisy during day time. When on the we top floor, there is a great... More

I stayed in Beshale for a total of about 10 days. The hotel is bit run down but it has its qualities. It is in the city and easy to get around to and from. There is a free breakfast buffet, although not a lot of variety of food. The rooms are ok, they definitely need renovation-- get rooms not... More

I had to spend a night in this hotel when Ethiopian airways delayed and I missed my connection flight to Washington DC. Firstly, I was dressed for summer weather with no plans of stopping in Addis, which was extremely cold at night! We arrived late at night along with other passengers and were quickly given rooms and were served with... More

I found some of the staff friendly, but others were decidedly not. My credit card didn't work when I was trying to check out and so be prepared to pay with USD, ETB or euros. I stayed twice. The first time the room contained a great deal of black mildew in the bathroom. The curtain didn't seal properly and the... More

The Beshale Hotel is and works better than it looks. The rooms are large and comfortable but not luxurious. Bathrooms look worn down but work well. The kitchen and the bar is very good....with excellent Ethiopian and Continental food. The service is good. The meeting rooms are basic but everything works and the staff go out of the way to...

Decent business style hotel. Nothing fancy, comfortable rooms, sound meeting facilities. Breakfast options are poor to average, but workshop lunches are great. Staff were helpful, friendly and attentive.

I stayed here for one night as our partner organisation had arranged a room for all of us here. When I normally have to spend the night in Addis Ababa, I go to a hotel which is more centrally located. It was arranged already so I had to stay here. I was planning to stay here more than just one... More

Two weeks at Beshale during work stay in Addis. The staff was kind and helpful. The food was all right, but lack of coffee in the morning is not acceptable. And when you want a second cup, it was tried to be charged... The rooms was ok, balcony at at all rooms, without balcony chairs (?). Clean and nice, the... More

Had to stay for one night as i was in transit in Ethopia, The rooms were bad and smelly. The staff was ok, and least courteous. The food and the restaurant on the other hand was good. Would not stay here if i had other options. Stay Date, Sept 2012

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
