This is the worst hotel I have EVER stayed at, I have stayed here 7 or 8 times over the last year (a few days to a few weeks). Let me first mention the one or two good points, there is a variation in room size but most are a good size. The breakfast which is included is good value... More

I visited this hotel in January 2014 for the third time as I think there is a deal with our office to accommodate our events in Ethiopia in Desalegn hotel. I was surprised this time with the deterioration in their services, especially the rooms. it is easy now to see a "bug" walking from the bathroom to the room, lamps... More

overall quality of the hotel is good. But the gym is weigh below standard for the gyms of our time and so overly priced. (they should think about what they charge for...).I also learned, For visitors the gym is so uninviting since they are trying to have very few customers who wouldn't really care about paying. Had they improved the... More

I staggered into my room at about midnight after 24 hours of travel and immediately fell asleep. I didn't realize until 5:30 am the next morning when the sun began to shine on me that my room had no curtains! So much for sleep after that! It was somewhat unbelievable and got my time there off to a rough start.... More

Despite the short notice, Desalegn hotel surpassed our expectation. Excellent conference space and catering. Real value for money with internet included, its a pretty good deal. For best sleep, avoid the area overlooking the road though it has the best view. Well done Dessalegn. Any time, I will be back.

The Hotel is located in a very secure area opposite EU offices and close to Bole road. Proximity to airport and major malls is a big plus. Food is great and staff at Desalegn have very good attitude and are always helpful, not to forget courteous shuttles by the hotel vans. Their rates are relatively lower compared to other hotels...

The hotel is not far from Bole and they provide a good shuttle service. While we were there we walked to nearby stores and had no problem finding things. The hotel is located near a... More

The new side is just everything you need. Large and clean rooms, good bathrooms, and nice service. All come with its reasonable price The location is also very good, walking distance from the heart of the city. The staff is also very helpful, in general it's highly recommended
