Go ahead and splurge - stay at this hotel upon arrival or just before departing Ethiopia - you'll appreciate the professional staff, comfortable bed, and the best blackout curtains ever! We got a great long night's sleep thanks to those curtains. My husband enjoyed a steak frites for dinner while I went out. In the morning I was delighted to... More

Booking of the shuttle from Airport to Hotel done by email 3 days before and I recommend this very efficient service which... More

I've stayed at the Radisson Blu on several occasions during a recent visit to Addis Ababa. The rooms are a nice size, comfortably appointed, and tastefully decorated. Wi-Fi is complimentary and good which is a huge plus. The breakfast buffet is extensive. Service throughout is very friendly. The spa is amazing! Don't leave the hotel without a massage. I highly...

First stay at this addis hotel. It's in a central location, great rooms, amenities, bars, cafe, and restaurant. However, the defining point is the service. Staff are always smiling, welcoming and genuine. Highly recommended for a stay in addis

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a sophisticated hotel in Addis. Our room was clean and upscale as was the modern bathroom. Wifi was complimentary and fast. We had dinner and drinks at the restaurant and enjoyed the patio. We found the French restaurant a bit pricey so we dined in the lounge. Generally everything about our... More

People are coming here mainly for business purposes and it's almost impossible to make anything with internet. I even don't complain about how slow it's. I keep my complaint level at very low; connection regularly fades away and then connection happens and then cuts again! It's a never ending and annoying loop!!

Dear Hakan D Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry about the internet situation you experienced during your stay. As you very certainly told, the unique state owned internet provider had issues at the time and our area of Addis Ababa suffered from low quality of service. Fortunately, this issue has now been solved and we are... More
