Surprised again! After finding a German bakery in Addis we also found a good German restaurant with very good beer. It offers a few typical beer garden dishes such as Bratwurst, grilled chicken and Sauerbraten. The service was a bit slow but the location was quiet and peaceful. We were pleasantly surprised and would rate it as considerably better than... More

The Beer Garden is clean, well maintained, and with a great bar and restaurant. The wifi works well too, which is a blessing in Ethiopia. One small complaint is that our check out was desperately slow and confused, but don't let that put you off. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is well located near bole road so very close the airport but also the centre. It is close to banks and shops as well some nice restaurants. The rooms are clean and WIFI is good. Bathrooms need some improvement and breakfast is very very basic in terms of choice.

If you travel a lot for work, you probably get fed up with the radissons of this world, the beer garden inn is very friendly and comfortable with clean and comfortable rooms-higher up the better. Food is fine if not spectacular. breakfast ok. Good and reliable shuttle service to airport. Don't miss the beer.

I've been to this twice, and honestly I would return whenever I am in Addis. Beer Garden is a place for a good start to the weekend. Lively environment especially around the outside bar. If you are a beer drinker make sure you have the keg beers that's served in the 5lt tubes. Lunch is very good with a mixture... More

Enjoyed my stay here earlier this year. Rooms are comfortable and the price is good. Great breakfast spread. Rooms higher up tend to be a little quieter. But the main draw is the fantastic "ebony" beer enjoyed in the lively bar downstairs. It's smooth and flavoursome and great value.

This place is rather unique in that it brews its own beer and serves items of german cuisine incl. Bratwurst, smoked beef potato soup, kasesparzle, beef roulagen, snitzel amongst other. I quite enjoyed the beer history in the menu!

The Beer Garden Inn might not rank high on many businessmen's list of decent hotels to stay when travelling into Africa and in particular Addis Ababa. While that is the case with me as well, it is very affordable (at around $60 per night) and in the right area with many of the more expensive hotels right around the corner.... More
