Between my coworker and myself, we spent a total of 75 nights at this hotel. And while I understand that most people won't stay that long, and won't experience all the interesting things we did, I would like to inform you of the worst that can happen to you at the Intercontinentaladdis. First of all, this hotel is not part... More

Our Ethiopian based travel company has chosen great hotels on our behalf-apart from this one. A banner in the lobby pronounces a "best hotel in Africa" award- I find that hard to believe. The room door appeared to have been forced at some stage, making it tricky to lock. The shower was tepid at best, the wifi didn't work, the... More

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at the Intercontinental Addis Hotel. The staff were very friendly and courteous. In fact very helpful indeed, in whatever you asked them. Having seen the lack of professionalism and poor customer care at some other hotels in Addis, I was very impressed.I highly recommend it.

I believe this is billed (and priced) as a 5 Star hotel. That results in expectations, which, as others have noted, simply are not met. The biggest failing was the Internet. As others have noted, it was inconsistent. Sometimes it worked just fine (I am writing this on the hotel WIFI.) Other times it was down, and few things are... More

It is sort of ok, in particular when you landed in the worst hotel ever, the grand yordanos, from where we escaped. Food is ok, average, nothing special. Same with the coffee. The breakfast is ok but been in much better intercontinental hotels in the world where the variety was much more than this one, as well as the quality.... More

I stayed for 3 nights for a business conference that was taking place at the hotel. There were a few positive aspects to the hotel - namely the staff, the hotel is popular with locals (typically large hotels out price locals), the rooms have balconies (but my door would not lock), and there is an iron and ironing board in...

Stayed for a week, the rooms are good and comfortable. Red rose and chocolate from housekeeping in the afternoon everyday was a pleasant surprise. Food in restaurant needs more variety, specially when there are many other very good hotels close by. Good location to move around, taxis are available all the time. Sound of piano a bit in high volume... More

This was my first trip to Ethiopia, and the hotel was chosen for me as it was a working trip. All things considered, I thought the hotel was superb. Some things, such a wifi could be a little slow at times, but I never had a real problem getting online. I found the hotel sometimes offered me the respite that... More

rooms are good, lavatories needs maintenance, no hot water in bathrooms, piano voice at the lobby is too loud to the extent that it might disturb your sleep,breakfast varaities are enough, yet still one of the best hotels in addis

In a 10 day stay internet was down 4 days(stock answer: Ethio Telecom are working on it), 2 ATMs were out of service for 3 days, all 3 news channels not working for 4 days, food awful with the wrong order delivered 1/3rd of the time with v.little effort to fix the many shortfalls. Will definitely NOT stay here again.... More
