A very pleasant hotel to stay in Addis. Location may not be the best being on a noisy street but the rooms are high quality and very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Free internet but it was a bit slow at times and intermittent - not necessarily the fault of the hotel. Highly recommendable.

I recently held a leadership conference here for 50 participants from around the world. The accommodations and conference space were wonderful, and only surpassed by the hospitality of ALL of the hotel's staff. From the check-in experience, the housekeeping staff, the restaurant staff, to the business and conference center staff, EVERYONE was incredible, helping to make this event an outstanding... More

I had a business trip for four nights in Addis Ababa. I read a lot of reviews and the Radisson seemed a good value, and I was not disappointed. First of all, the entire staff made me feel very welcome, starting with the gentleman at the airport who was looking for passengers for the shuttle bus. I had to wait... More

this was the best hotel available in Addis. It's got good location in the city center, and is very close to key government offices, museums and other touriest sites of interest. The food was also quite decent and well in line with international standards. Overall, my weeklong stay has been trouble-free and met all expectations for a clean room, comfortable... More

This hotel is exceptional. Clean, good food, good service. I was in Addis for a business trip and found everything exceeded my expectations. Internet service is an issue but I think it had less to do with the hotel than the provider. Choose the Radisson if you ever travel to Addis!

16 days of work in Addis, staying at the company hotel. Rounded it of with a night in the lap of luxury. My suggestion: stay here for the last days of your trip. It is an excellent hotel, but it is like Europe, not Addis.

I stayed for seven weeks at this hotel in June and July 2014 and was very happy with the choice of hotel. The rooms are clean and everything is still reasonably new. Breakfast is good, especially the breads and pastries which were fresh baked every day. The wifi internet was OK, on and off as with anywhere else in Addis,... More

Excellent, especially the staff, who, aside from having excellent English and being very polite, seem to have an instinctive understanding of what is needed and are there when needed, without harassing or hovering.
