Well located and appointed, this is an excellent choice for a stay in Addis. The rooms have all modern conveniences and the beds are super comfortable. The staff are exceptionally professional and polite and the service top tier. I have stayed there twice in the last months and will absolutely go back.

This hotel needs serious intervention by the Head Office! I ordered spicy and crispy chicken winds from the Signature bar, when the dish arrived I saw that they had given me crumbed deep fried drum sticks, totally tasteless and only just cooked. I went to the Rainforest day spa for a sauna and steam bath, but was told that the...

During my first Ethiopia visit I have stayed here 4 days. Staffs are very polite and helpful. However this Hotel is almost attached to main Road and I have little concerned about security. We have get down in busy Road and walk to the Hotel and there is not enough parking space for cars.

Whilst security is a bit of a pain, it is welcome to ensure peace of mind, Once past the scanners, check in was easy and quick. Front desk sold me on an upgrade - so up to exec floor.

Well, to start with: If you ever stayed in Radisson Blu, so don't expect the same standard in this hotel in Addis! Bad location: in the middle of the busy road in Kazanchis. You cannot go by car to the entrance... In case it is raining (and it rains this time a lot in Addis), you will go without umbrella...

With contemporary setting, Raddison Blu is located right inside the CBD and within walking distance of most amenities. It offers excellent services coupled with good food. Breakfast is excellent with a wide range of choices. Nice lounge for relaxing at night and a well equipped gym. Would make very good choice indeed if traveling to Addis.

This hotel is a very good address in the "heart of africa". Really nice rooms, with air condition and WiFi for free. As well for free the Business Center which allows you to do everything. Minibar in the room and as well a coffeemaker. During the week also a counter from Ethiopian Airlines. Great experience to stay there.

The Radisson needs to staff up their front desk. At 6:00 PM there was only one staff, who seemed overwhelmed and somehow lacking customer service skills. I asked for a late check out (my flight leaves at 11:00 PM the next day) with the assumption that it will be a breeze but I was denied a few times until I...
