Fantastic views and friendly staff, cold beers and edible food. The rooms and toilets are however terrible and I doubt they could even be renovated due to their pitiful state. If you are OK with lots of mosquitoes, hot nights without fan or AC, trickling water showers and bare porcelain toilets that can hardly flush, this is your place!

The location is everything! Set in a sprawling garden where baboons and warthog amble around. The bar/restaurant has an incredible view of Lake Abaya and Lake Chano. The restaurant also has a TV area that mostly screens football games loudly and was often packed with locals students making use of the wifi. The rooms are shabby, unclean and overpriced at... More

We (couple) have been working, living and traveling in Ethiopia for the last 2 years and stayed at Bekele Mola for 2 nights the past weekend (May 2-3). These 2 nights were among the worst hotel experiences we've had in Ethiopia so far. The rooms are very outdated and the beds and mattresses haven't been changed since the 1970's. The... More

I heard this Hotel was once define luxury in the city, but it turn out to be old fashioned to me now. Despite the cleanness all room facility seems outdated need to refurbished.

The furniture, the balcony, the terrace, it all breaths the kolonial atmosphere. It ' s a very ok-place to stay. Rooms: basic but good flushing toilet and really hot showers. Restaurant : super good soup and maindish

Arriving, it looks old. It is old. But it kept all the charm of the early days. With a service and food quality like not often found in Ethiopia. Relaxing terrace and even a snake eagle in the garden, eating...... a snake. Check that your water is hot in the room. All other hotels on the cliff were looking like... More

It should not be called Lake Langano as that is at another place than Arba Minch. The Bekele Mola hotel was clean, basic, with mosquito netting, all rooms with own toilet and shower, friendly service and excellent food. The terrace, overlooking the two lakes and the forest below with it's 40 springs, is its best asset. Relaxing atmosphere, far away... More

I have stated here several times and in all honestly it gets worse each time. The early morning views are glorious and really this is all it has to offer. Rooms are barely cleaned, service is almost non-existent, food is very basic and the staff lack interest and motivation! The hotel should and could be prestigious or at least have... More
