I was recently at the Radisson Blu in Nairobi which is new, modern and lovely, and thankfully I asked the concierge about the RB Addis Ababa who promptly managed my expectations appropriately. Here's the thing. This hotel is great relative to its peers in Addis including the Sheraton. The hallways and rooms are clean, water pressure is good, beds are...

Had a quick (17 hour) stopover in Addis. The Raddison Blu was a great place for the stopover! They provided transportation to and from the airport which was very quick and efficient. Food: I had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Both were fantastic! If you have to leave before breakfast opens they have a free "grab n' go"...

The Radisson in Adis Ababa is, by the standards of leading hotels in the leading capital cities, not particularly exciting or special, though perfectly adequate. However Adis Ababa, despite being home to the HQ of the Africa Union, not a main leading capital city. It is the capital of a very poor country seemingly currently run in a somewhat authoritarian...

Yes..a mini bar beer for about 2,5 dollar The restaurant is luxurious, rooms are good, free coffee beans provided, restaurant is good, breakfast is also good and plenty, but a mini bar that isn't a ripoff... A first for me. An example for all hotels. People will buy a lot more if you don't charge them ridiculous prices.

Radisson Blu is not bad a hotel to relax. Staff are willing to offer assistance. Food is ok and other services except the restricted wifi. I think downloading can be included in the internet service. Thank you
