The staff is wonderful helpful and friendly, the location is good and it has good facilities (pool, spa, shopping arcade, bank, Ethiopian Airlines office, restaurant and poolside restaurant executive floors and lounge). But the rooms are old and shabby (need urgent upgrade), the building needs update and at its present situation, I doubt if it deserves Hilton standard of 4... More

For Hilton platinum members you get a free snack offering each weekday evening which was good. Then we got free breakfast as well after we reached the platinum level. You only get points with Hilton up to 60 days so we had to check out of the hotel for the weekend and take a trip, then check back in each... More

After learning of the State of Emergency in the country on my arrival there could have been good reason to turn around and leave. Once I arrived at the Hilton Hotel Complex and was treated by the staff so very well, unless you had known through the newspapers of the problems, you would have never known anything.

After much internal debate, I'm rating this hotel 5-stars. For starters, the staff were uniformly wonderful...warm, helpful, professional. The restaurant in the main building has a nice buffet, and the Gazebo restaurant, by the (geothermal....WARM) pool, is very pleasant. Room service is quick and well-priced. Yes, as noted by the other reviewers, the facilities are not quite up-to-date or, in... More

Fantastic place to stay. Staff is wonderful. It is pricier than other hotels in Addis, but worth it in terms of amenities and security. Breakfast is top-notch, including a smoothie bar. Would stay there again.

The Hilton in Addis is an excellent fall-out basis for a visit of Addis Ababa. Ever friendly personnel, a relaxing swimming pool, tennis, .... The breakfast buffet is very generous and rooms are very comfortable.

Rooms need alot of maintainance. Bathrooms and toilets needs to be re-done - Cracks in walls, mosaics and tiles falling off. Poor strength of the Internet connectivity. No so many vegetarian options in the menu. Room service menu shhould be updated.

This hotel was build a really long time ago and it's still great. The pool is nice and warm, the food is really good, the rooms are comfy and the staff is okay. The building is classic. The whole hotel is iconic and it's legacy lives on.
