This probably the best place to stay when visiting Addis Ababa. It is where the Ethiopian upper class and expats meet for lunch, socializing, etc. It has an amazing garden, pool side area several amenities. Safe, clean with the best you can find in Ethiopia.

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...

This hotel offers first rate service and the staff perform over and beyond their duty, especially the Reception staff and staff managing the Executive Lounge. These are professionals to envy for their dedication, hard work, responsiveness, and devotion to duty. The room was comfortable and amenities provided well appreciated.

The check in and check out procedures were sloppy and unprofessional although the service during my stay was good. The rooms were fine, but with outdated fixtures and furniture. When I arrived at the hotel, the staff could not find my reservation and charged me a rate that was much more per night than the rate I reserved or the...

It was almost like being at home. The staff remembered my personal preferences. The room was always clean, the food was always good, and the staff went beyond my expectations in helping me adjust to a different environment

So I was Transient between flights and chose to stay at the Hilton. Shuttle from the airport was reasonable and only an 8-10 minute ride. The hotel couldn't find my reservation but I was able to email my confirmation to the night manager and they were very helpful. The staff at the front desk were great! My stay was short...

Nice place in a nice location. The facilities are good and the food is average. I found the pricing for some meals rather a bit high but generally the pricing for the other items is reasonable. I would recommend this place.

Even by African standards, this place is a bit disappointing for a Hilton. The foyer is smart enough and the staff are polite and helpful, but my room (on the 'Executive Floor') probably hadn't seen a coat of paint in ten years. It all felt a bit tired and even a bit grubby. For the price I paid, I would...
