“Good location and nice restaurant”
Reviewed 7 March 2011

Quite far from the centre but that is an advantage. Bungalows are in a good condition, rooms are spacy and have comfortable beds.The problem is that there was no electricity and also water, at the time I stayed in. They provided water in plastic buckets so it was possible to take a "shower". The hotel has very nice restaurant with a beautiful view over two lakes. You should try fish dishes, they are made from really fresh fish!
Price for double room in February 2011 was 300 birr.

Stayed 1 night in this hotel, because 2 upscale hotels - Paradise Lodge and Swaine lodge - didn't have rooms. It was a basic hotel. Could be suitable, if not so many mosquitoes in the room and in the bathroom... Me and my friend didn't even dare to remove our cloth for a sleep amid fears of mosquitoe bites. It is ok only if the 2 other options are fully booked.

I really liked the location of this place, the view from the terrace is fabulous. The prices were really good, and they have great breakfast. Rooms were simple but clean, the bathrooms also. Very little hot water though

We were in Ethiopia doing some charity work. In previous years the charity group has stayed at this hotel without any problems...however...My luggage was stolen whilst staying at this hotel. The hotel has approximately 10 rooms at the front and 10 at the back. Unfortunately my room was at the back, and after having breakfast on the first morning, I was told that the window to my room had been smashed. I went to my room and found to my horror that both sets of my luggage had been stolen. The sad thing about the whole incident is that it looked like the hotel manager had actually staged and arranged the whole robbery. I only managed to locate 1 piece of my stolen luggage, only after my charity informed the local police, who made an appearence at the hotel, and then assured me that they would somehow locate my luggage. Personally, I think the amount of police that showed up at the hotel actually scared the manager and thats when one piece of my stolen luggage "appeared out of nowhere." Definitely wouldn't stay here again at all.

The Bekelle Mola hotel is a part of the chain of the same name and is one of the few good quality hotels in this part of the Rift Valley. The rooms are basic but clean enough and came complete with mosquito nets, which proved unnecessary at this time of year. The food on offer was fine with plenty of fish for those who want it, and readily washed down with a cheap glass of beer. The staff were very friendly and the ambience of the place was very relaxed and easy going.

The position was wonderful being right on the edge of the lake and also having extensive rocky scrubland at the base of the nearby cliffs. This was excellent for early morning birding (which was the purpose of our trip) and provided 40+ species before breakfast.

Lake Langano is freshwater and safe for swimming, unlike most of the others around here.

The hotel is also well positioned for access to other nearby lakes, notably Lakes Abiata and Shala.

If you are looking for 4* comforts then you are in the wrong place and the wrong country.

  • Liked — Position and traditional Ethiopian friendliness.
  • Disliked — Layout.
