let me start off me stating that I am comparing this to other hotels in Addis. If I compared it globally I would rate if just 1 star less. The service is excellent, its very close to the airport with a shuttle service (US$7 each way), food, including room service, dinner and breakfast, is excellent and facilities are modern and... More

Rooms are very good, pay the extra for the business rooms. It includes "happy hour" which gives you free drinks and food between 5 and 8 every evening. The staff are great and very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean with all the usual facilities. Each room has an iron and ironing board which is handy.Gym facilities are good.... More

Of course, compared to other pseudo international hotels in the area, The Radisson Blu Hotel is good. Still, the standard room could be larger and mine (on the 7th) was on Tito Street, very noisy and polluted. There was water everywhere on the ground when I was taking showers. In the bathroom, the sink won't drain. I had to call... More

4-star hotel in convenient location in downtown Addis. Nice lobby and check-in with pleasant front-desk staff. Rooms and bathrooms are very nice and well appointed. Recently spent 2 weeks in Ethiopia with family and was in and out of Addis multiple times prior to and after visits to Omo Valley, Simien Mountains and Lalibela. Stayed in Radisson twice: internet service... More

Arguably the best hotel in Addis for sleep quality, security, meeting, internet, employees...and food. Raddison Blu Addis stands out from the crowded Addis Ababa hotel market place. The internet is not the best but again communication is controlled by Ethiopian government...

I've visited all the leading business hotels in Addis and the Radisson Blu is the leader. Very helpful staff, excellent rooms, good restaurant, easy in/out access, best prices in this league, excellent wifi. Keep it up

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
