I stayed here for 3 nights in January 2014 with a group of friends/colleagues and found it a good experience. Above average guest house, comfortable bunk beds, spacious bathroom, fast wifi in the reception area and very friendly staff who will help you order food delivery if needed as well. Only caveat is the location is a bit out of... More

This was our third trip to Ethiopia and our first time staying at Bethel Guest Home. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The staff is wonderful and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We were traveling with our four children and felt very comfortable letting them wander the compound, knowing they would be safe. They... More

This place is rated the best to stay in Addis on Trip advisor so it was easy to decide to book us here. The rates are good with airport pick-up and drop which were supposed to be included in the price but which we had to pay for. The guest house is located very far from Bole Airport, a 30... More

Food is great, service is great rooms are large and clean, very low rates. I like that I can book a room with a phone call to the proprietor in the US and the hotel is run by local people. A great model and the profits benefit the orphans and street children.

The Guest House is a very nice place to stay. The staff is excellent!! They are willing and eager to help in any way. After staying for 10 days they became family. If the accommodations and friendly staff aren't reason enough to stay, the profit from this house goes to help street children in Addis Ababa. I have personally met... More

The Bethel Guest home is like a home-away-from-home. The staff treat you like family and the accommodations couldn't be nicer. Beautiful and comfortable rooms, outstanding chef, large great rooms to relax and hang out with your group......I wouldn't stay any where else. I will miss each and every one of the staff and can't wait to come back!
