A basic hotel on six levels (Ground + 5) with an inhouse beer brewery at the lounge. If you are a beer fan then you would have to tell which beer to taste.. I am not. The road to the hotel was not done (2015 May), and you would fear that you were headed to a rather unkempt facility. Generally... More

I do think that an accommodation experience depends on the staff on duty when you check into an establishment, especially if it is only for a night or two. This inn came highly recommended and we were very disappointed. Our problems started when after a long day on the road there was only in single towel, in a double room.... More

We have been to The Beer Garden in Bole area of Addis (One of the most happening areas of the city) every time we have visited Addis for business, but only for food and beers. The restaurant has 2 sections viz. a typical closed door pub like restaurant with the Microbrewery tumblers used for fermenting beer and storing it in... More

This place was very comfortable to stay in. Had a cool restaurant and beer garden. Staff are awesome. Location is pretty good - a mall nearby and a nice church with outdoor garden just a minute walk away.

The rooms were good and clean and it's not a bad choice for the airport. The attached restaurant/bar is good for beer but I wasn't hugely impressed with the snack that I ordered. It was something like $120 per night which didn't represent particularly great value.

I stayed at the Beer Garden Inn for 3 nights and found the hotel perfectly acceptable. There are no frills but the rooms are fine and relatively clean although my own room had someone's discarded shampoo bottle in the shower cubicle and the bar of soap had been used previously. I found the staff approachable and friendly and the bar... More

Beer Garden is a great place to stay; it definitely has more personality than all the random new hotels in Addis Ababa these days. Very clean! Everything works in the bathroom :), thank God! (I've been in more than one room) All you guys that travelled Ethiopia would sure appreciate that! Reception is very professional. Bar staff are great! The... More

I stayed here for two nights; clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, good location and great food. They brew their own beer here which you should definitely try out. Perhaps the prices are high compared to other hotels, but sitting either outside in the sun or in the beergarten with a locally brewed beer is a unique experience in Addis.... More
