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

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
