We just completed our stay at the Radisson at Addis Ababa. We had booked a double room but then sent in a request for an additional roll on bed for our 8 year old. We got confirmation from them that they can provide this, but that there would be an additional charge of $36, but which included bed *and* breakfast... More

The Radisson is an excellent option for an international traveler because it's located in the center of the city and has all the convenience and style of a modern European Hotel . I have to underline the Radisson has excellent service and the restaurant has amazing local and international food that is a great value. Definitely one of the best... More

Safe, clean and functional modern hotel close to the UN buildings. This is a new hotel so everything is working! Good buffet breakfast. Small gym. Business room was fine - access to snacks and alcohol in the business lounge. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. Small outside bar area. Hotel located on a busy main road.

Stopped into raddisson at three intervals during trips to Addis during beginning of rainy season. The welcome, efficiency of staff and clean comfy rooms are of a high international standard. However having stopped in at other Addis hotels during trip, the value you get at raddisson for the price is low. Also, the 'whole day breakfast' is mysteriously only available... More

I am currently at the Radisson Addis. This is a perfect business hotel if that's what you are looking for. It is clean, it works, the food is good but it is entirely soulless. You could be anywhere in the world. Save for looking out at building sites, you would not know you are in Africa. So very sad.

A top class hotel as one would expect of the brand. Friendly staff. The restaurant / breakfast room offers an excellent spread in its buffet. Largely western with a little Ethiopian faire for interest. Recommended. My only gripe - an in effective air-conditioner.
