Predictably good stay with Radisson. Good service, OK rooms (they never too big at Radissons anyway) and great wi-fi (wow speed for anything you expect in Africa). Location is within the quick ride from anywhere - airport, business district etc. Very friendly staff. On pre-warned pre-armed side: 1) credit card terminals there can fail you big time, so be ready... More

Food: The food was very good, especially the breakfast buffet - they seemed to have everything imaginable. Rooms: Great view of Addis from the rooms, particularly the higher rooms. Very clean. Wifi: For 2 of the days... More

As Addis has about 3 "chain" hotels, this hotel was excellent. The staff was so nice, kind and helpful it was almost uncomfortable. When no SIM cards were available, one offered me theirs, for free. The rooms are on a main road, yet quiet. Breakfast is excellent, and other meals are OK, but it is easy to walk around the... More

Though a small hotel, Radisson Blu (a relative newcomer) offers stiff competition for its larger hotel chain counterparts in Addis. It's centrally located, and has a modern, energetic ambiance with an active bar, restaurant and onsite multiservice spa. The management understands customer service and makes a visible effort to please and to address problems immediately. The hotel internet service was... More

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
