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!!

The hotel is an excellent choice in Addis Ababa. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food is excellent, the rooms are very clean. The executive room has a variety of fruits and food to enjoy. Overall, a good experience and I would stay there again with no hesitation.

Stayed at the Radisson Blu Addis for 2 full weeks and had a great experience. Hotel went out of their way to make me comfortable. Facilities are world class and service far exceeds what you expect in Ethiopia.

Spent a week in Radisson Blu during a recent business trip. Enjoyed every bit of my stay in the hotel. The customer service was 5*, rooms were very clean and food was great. I particularly enjoyed breakfast. The meeting rooms were also spacious and very well organized. I would go back to this hotel, any time I have a chance.... More

Good room and bathroom, service and food much better than the Hilton where we stayed last year with well trained staff and excellent facilities .A big plus for Addis and ideal for a family stay or for business

I must say that this is my first bad experience with Radisson Blu. But I will not blame Radisson Blu for the same. Hotel is amazing with all the facilities which you would look forwarded for except swimming pool (But as It was winter, so did not matter much). So As I said everything went well. I stayed from 30...

Very spacious, quiet, lovely, inviting hotel. Excellent staff/service. Nice breakfast, good drinks/food choices, fast internet (watched a full live football game from back home!), really good rooms, and even nicer showers/bathroom. Highly recommend it.

Room is really nice and modern although the bathroom had a bad smell but this was because of the scheduled maintenance. Lobby is not alive at night but there is an outdoor Cafe but it's not that good. gym is relatively small but it will do. Breakfast is nice.

It's such a refreshing feeling walking into the hotel. The staff are very competent and speaks very well and they are throughly trained. The business class rooms are amazing and quite spacious. I simply love staying there and it makes the trip to Addis less stressful knowing I will be embraced by the sweet luxurious of the Radisson.
