Very nice hotel. The service and the room are perfect. Unfortunately there is no swimming pool in the hotel but the spa is perfect and I recommend to guests to have any massage session in the hotel. The street is a bit crowded.

The hotel is located in the heart of Addis with easy access to pretty much anywhere you want to go. The room were not large but perfectly adequate. The beds were rather too soft for my taste but that's the only gripe I have. Breakfast is very good and general food and beverage choices are very good albeit expensive for... More

Very nice hotel. Staff very friendly and welcoming. There is a good restaurant on-site, but nothing much in the area if you want to walk out. Bring an adaptor for North American outlets if you need one, as it is hard to find one. Overall, very nice hotel.

Lovely rooms, well equipped (and after a week of hotels with varying quality mattresses and linens, we reveled in the sheets!). Food overall is excellent and breakfast buffet is one of best on continent! Staff couldn't be nicer, spa received universally good reviews from several of our traveling companions. Enthusiastically recommend....

We stayed at the Radisson Blu twice during a two week visit to Ethiopia. Both stays were excellent with very comfortable rooms on the top floor due to a very reasonable upgrade option that entitled us to access to the Business Lounge on a daily basis and included breakfast. The hotel has all the amenities one would expect in an... More

I have to be fair as the overall impression for that hotel is good. It is modern, clean, comfortable and well maintain. The food at the restaurant is good and the staff everywhere is caring, professional and nice. This is my 4th stay in that hotel. My only concern this time was about the strong sweating smell in my room... More

The hotel was beautiful upon entry. However, the hotel staff said my travel company (expedia) never sent them the reservation and that they had no way to contact them. The hotel staff was unprofessional and the manager on duty kept telling me to wait 5 minutes. I even had to call expedia since they didn't have the number, which is... More

I spent more on one night here than I did in total on six other Ethiopian hotels the previous week...and it was not worth it!
