I was in Addis Ababa for a meeting. The Radison Blu was outstanding. Comfortable, very clean plus the staff is outstanding. The food was quality for Ethiopia. Addis has luxury next to poverty all over, and it is the same with this hotel. It is a wonderful destination after the long flight from the U.S.

Excellent staff; friendly and helpful. They will do whatever it takes to make your stay very comfortable. Very nice pasteries and coffee in the cafe. Room services is fast. Also a very good option for corporate events.

Overrall I enjoyed my stay at the Radisson. The employees are fantastic: both kind and helpful. Two drawbacks: 1/ While I enjoyed most of the dishes served in the restaurant or the terrace some were definetly not to my liking: the curry in the restaurant, too salty and not acccompanied by rice but by a gratin dauphinois which was not...

This was an oasis of comfort in Addis after our flight from the States. The hotel and rooms are clean and modern, and the service professional. The rooms seem luxurious and decadent compared to some of the neighboring poverty. There isn't much of interest within walking distance, although I do recommend Cafe Limmu for snacks and spris drinks up the... More

A very good Hotel to stay at, and i will recommend it to anyone visiting Ethiopia. Everything one needs, especially the iron and the board are in the room. exellent service. The location however does not compliment the this 5 star hotel. The TV has all the channels one needs.

I stayed recently at this relatively new modern building- hotel while attending a conference at the Sheraton hotel (which remains the most palatial hotel in town). The accommodation on the 3rd floor with a large double bed was indeed uptodate and well maintained (double glazed windows kept the noise from the main street away). The bathroom with both a shower...

The hotel is modern, service is good, rooms are clean and comfortable, and the restaurant and bar are perfectly adequate (if a little short on space!). My only major concern is the wifi which was very erratic - at times it was fine and relatively fast but at other times it was simply hopeless!

First stay - two nights in 622. This room is on the back side of the hotel with a construction view. There are no clocks in the rooms. The wifi connection was iffy. Plenty of hot water. Comfy bed, comfy modern room. Hairdryer, iron, fairly good toiletries provided. Bathroom lighting is pretty poor. Breakfast buffet is great with very friendly... More

I stayed at the Radisson three times over the past few weeks, with rooms on the 3rd, 4th and 8th floors. It's a nice hotel. Sleep quality and bathrooms are good, and the internet is decent.

Prior to the arrival of Radisson Blu, there were only two international standard hotels in Addis Ababa - the emblematic Sheraton and it's slightly less flashy neighbor, the Hilton. A few metres away from both, Radisson Blu is the new kid on the block - and will likely become the most popular. Having stayed at a dozen hotels on Addis,... More
