The radison blu was a welcomed respite after our whirlwind tour of Ethiopia. The room was gorgeous and beyond comfortable. Wifi was awesome and the dinner and breakfast buffet was delicious. It was nice to have a bathtub for our son (most hotels only have showers)

Attended for a business meeting. Staff were attentive, all the staff, even the domestic staff, spoke impeccable English. Rooms were arranged as requested and impeccably laid out. Accidentally locked things in the safe and could not open it again: security head was in swift attendance with master key with witness so I was impressed with the procedures in place that... More

We booked the Radisson hoping for something a little more. The hotel was very average for the price and characterless. Appropriate as a business hotel but poor if you are wanting an Ethiopian experience. The location was ok, but the Hilton and others are better. The breakfast was good. The staff were helpful.

The rooms are updated and very comfortable, but there are a few problems. There is no pool, the food in the lounge is expensive and quite unpleasant (Hilton's food is much better), and they use the restaurant as a party venue -- basically a nightclub -- until after midnight, including on Sunday night. So any rooms on one end of... More

The hotel is good and most importantly the staff are very nice and forthcoming. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! The only thing that was a bit annoying are the rather very high prices for meals. A Cesar's salad with chicken is as expensive as in Switzerland (no joke). The Chicken Burger I ordered was eatable but without taste. In any case... More
