Enjoyed my stay at this facility. I loved my beautiful large corner room which gave me an good view of the city landscape! Food was good though the Ethiopian cuisine is very spicy. The F&B staff were very helpful during the 3 day conference held at at the premises.

This is not an intercontinental hotel standard, rude staff, they got my booking all wrong and assumed that my wife was a working girl on so many occasions and also got my type of room wrong even though that I booked the junior, the initial room given to us was a standard room. I would advise any traveller to look... More

It turns out that the hotel is not part of the Intercontinental group. Hence, the name is misleading. Once you adjust your expectations accordingly, many of the services of the hotel are likely to exceed your expectations. What is striking about the hotel is quality service, cleanliness, and efficiency. The reception area staff is particularly helpful. I single out Fraol,... More

Friendly staff and nice hotel. Not the best of views on offer but the rooms were clean and spacious. The food was good and the conference facilities were surprisingly good. The staff were always eager to help and we had a really good time at the hotel. It's a nice modern hotel,although a little surreal when you step out and... More

Was expecting to walk in through the doors of an Intercontinental group hotel but alas that is not the case, however the rooms are great and the food is good. Even the service is prompt and efficient, quite surprising in a good way.

Whilst I agree with others it's not an intercontinental at all, it's a three star place. The rooms are really nice, bathrooms need a refurbish. The choic at breakfast is amazing but the quality is not brilliant.ndinner service very slow but reasonably priced Will return

Nothing to do with the international chain of hotels called "InterContinental", so don't be fooled. Bright sunny rooms, terrible views over constructions sites in both directions. Location not very central which means you have to get a taxi or bajaj (tuk-tuk) everywhere. Small gym reasonably equipped. 20m roof top swimming pool that is adequately maintained: thankfully, the water is warmed,... More

We spend a week in this establishment. Lovely stay and I would recommend the hotel, if I don't consider the room rate. Only got bottled water in the room twice in a week. No consistency in service. Had a bad experience at one of the ATMS in the hotel. Breakfast good with a nice variety, even some cheeses and very... More

The best thing about the Intercontinental Addis Hotel is the convenience if your business is at the UN complex which is just a few minutes away. The rooms are spacious and quite comfortable though getting old now. I have stayed countless times at the hotel with mixed experiences. sometimes, there is only lukewarm water for the shower especially in the... More
