I transited in Addis for two nights going and coming from Malawi and spent both nights in this Hotel. The rooms are ok but the second room I slept in had an odd smell. The lights went off at 2 AM the first night and didn't come on until 4AM that morning. One of the staff was aggressive. The food... More

Recently spent four nights here while attending some meetings in Addis - perfectly located for where I needed to get to, though quite noisy at night. Nice big room with plenty of hot running water, television in the room, but no wifi. Staff were helpful, food was OK.

No bottle water, no tooth brushes, no shampoo or amenities. We did get breakfast coupons, but no slippers no coffee maker or robes. I... More

I was put up in this hotel by an airline as I had missed a connecting flight. I would never willingly pay for this atrocity of a hotel. Staff are rude and unfriendly, rooms are cold, untidy with smelly bathrooms.Beds in rooms are very hard and uncomfortable. You do not ever want to stay in this hotel. Avoid it at... More

We have had a four day stay at the Panorama hotel and have found the hotel very comfortable, clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We will recommend this hotel to friends and family for future stays in Addis. The restaurant has nice food especially the local dishes and cheese burgers :)

The staff here were very helpful- only thing I would suggest is that you make sure the internet is working when you arrive. I had issues with the internet during my stay. The manager however was very helpful with any requests that I had and overall had a pleasant experience.

Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms - with a great big bathroom and bath. The service was warm and hospitable and the airport transfers were complimentary. As a capital city hotel, the breakfast inclusive rate was fair, however the food and beverage charges were incredibly inexpensive and the lobby bar was very nice place to eat and served the most wonderful...
