Only for a banquette did we attend in the restaurant, but what an experience. This iconic luxury hotel dates back to the 1970s. The facilities are unrivalled. I ask myself what the room rates are, cannot be cheap, thats for sure. On my next trip to Addis I plan to stay in the Hilton for a change. Report to follow.

The hotel was beautiful, the rooms were much more modern than many of the hotels I have visited around the world. The staff was just pleasant. Talk about the restaurant, If I had two stomachs, oh...

I stayed for two nights. Big room, clean and fair quality of everything. The lobby is big and accommodative, check in and out was easy and fast. Friendly staff at each and every location of the hotel. Breakfast is very nice, the bar at the lobby is not so vibrant but fair for a quiet conversation with someone over a...

Had a pleasant stay for a short business trip. Rooms, food, service great. Front desk Samuel was excellent. He called to ask when I was going to be checking out, and noting that I was (sounded) sick, gave me a later check out. Very welcome indeed as I was feeling terribly under the weather. Only area to improve- bell hops...

Stayed here over a two week period checking in and out three times because of short stays elsewhere in the country. Very friendly check in and speedy check out.

It's a 15 min ride from the airport. The hotel is big and attempts to maintain an African motif. It reminded me of an elegant old lady trying to cover up her age with make-up. The hotel seems aged, but modernized. There is security to enter it and the hotel staff and manager are very friendly and helpful. I would...

Superb hotel as premises and location. Bit old building and about to have renovations for bathrooms. Staff are extremely warm and helpful. Gazebo is such a nice place to sit and enjoy food and drinks.

To be improved. Rooms are very old. There is a need to renovate them. There is also need to put in place a free access to internet. Meanwhile, the people in the desk should be more flexible and open to critics for improving the service.

Nice overall service from the staff, very much customer oriented. Good rooms although a bit old, but comfortable and quiet. Food was good too, and they also have a pool and a barber shop! Shuttle service to and from the airport ar a low fare. A good place to stay, 20mn from the airport.
