Bethel Guest Home was a wonderful place to stay for our time in Addis. It was clean, comfortable, and well managed. Breakfast every morning was delicious. The staff met our every need and treated us like royalty. Cannot wait to go back - I'd definitely stay here again!

I just recently stayed there about 2 weeks ago and I loved it! I stay every year and it is always amazing. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure we are treated like royalty. I've stayed at other guesthouses and this is by far the best.

Bethel Staff provided great memories by providing an awesome coffee celebration at the end of our 3 week stay. Their carefully prepared coffee the Ethiopian way was indescribable. Did I mention, staff also ensured I found just the right souvenirs as well. We enjoyed superior service during the 3 weeks which included timely repair of the bathroom when we had...

I felt like I was a "king" when staying at the Bethel House. The staff served us beyond all expectation. That fact alone made my stay in Addis a wonderful experience. The Guest House is very nice, has hot water (yea!) and private bathroom. We enjoyed use of the conference rooms as well. The meals were outstanding serving American or...

I cannot say enough about this place. This was my first time to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and loved my experience. This was largely due to my stay at Bethel Guest Home. The staff was welcoming and hospitable! As a 20 year old female, the staff took great care and assured my safety. All employees went out of their way to...

Everyone was very helpful, starting with reservations, up to check out. Carrie, Guest Relations Manager, was very efficient and arranged to reimburse our cab fare since we arrived on the same day - not enough time to arrange a shuttle (My Bad!). Titti, the Concierge, made our kids feel at home, giving them toys to play with in the hotel...

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...

Bethel guest home is a wonderful reflection of a wonderful country. I wasn't certain of what to expect during my first visit but was delighted with my experience.

“The room we stayed in was perfect for our situation. We stayed on the first floor and the suite had lots of closets with a queen bed in it. Inside the suite was a small room where there was a set of bunk beds and then off that room was the bathroom. The room was big and spacious and had a door to close to the small room, so while the girls were sleeping, I could leave the light on and have some quiet time.”

“They have rooms to accommodate just about any size in your party. The rooms on the far side (away from the entrance) look out at another building whereas the other side near the entrance had a more panoramic view. Of course I was on the 1st floor so it made no difference which side you were on there....the other side would give you a view of the wall surrounding the guesthouse.”

“The rooms are all very nice. Don't forget a sweater though -- it's chilly as Addis is so high above sea level. I also had a mosquito chase me around the room for a little bit until I unpacked the bug repellent.”
