This hotel is an curious mix of luxury and run-down features in a bad neighborhood. It's a nice looking building at first, 10+ story high-rise with lots of glass, but in the middle of a slum! It's web site bills itself as Luxury and Glamor ... "In Piazza, the heart of Addis Ababa's business and financial district lies an architectural... More

Had an overnight stop in Addis, due to Ethiopian Airlines flight changes, etc. Was put up in the Churchill. Arrived very late, and departed relatively early the next morning. However the staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean and relatively comfortable. Food was also pretty decent. Had Wi-Fi in the room, after requesting the password. Pleasant stay in a... More

I stayed at this "hotel" "courtesy" of Ethiopian Airlines on an overlay. I had to surrender my passport (never happened before or since in Addis) before being allowed into the room (booked and paid by the airline). The room was dingy and old. Only one light worked, and the lock to the door of the room's little verandah (luckily on... More

I stayed at this hotel for several weeks. Very centrally located near Black lion Hospital and Ministry of Health for medical volunteers. Staff is very friendly and tries hard to please. Has a good gym with exercise equipment and a trainer on staff at all times. Also a spa with great massages. Breakfast is buffet with lots of choices but... More

We stayed at the Churchill by default, after our flight to Guangzhou was cancelled by Ethiopian Air. After a long wait and rather uncomfortable shuttle ride we got there. I found the food unpalatable, there was no hot water and fleas in the bed. After an uncomfortable stay, I was more than ready to leave.

An average hotel with average service. The reception staff and the bellboy were most welcoming and accomodating. Rooms were huge and clean but did not have aircon so had to leave windows open and therefore assaulted by passing traffic noises. Food was below average.

It was not our choice, Ethiopian Airlines sent us in Churchill hotel for 2 nights because of schedule change. Room was spacious and that's it. No matter how I try I just can't find anything else nice to say about this hotel. Breakfast was incredibly poor, restaurant staff seemed to be on strike all the time. Although EA provided full...

I stayed at Churchill Hotel in December during a stop over in Addis Abeba. I did not have a choice because it was the hotel assigned by Ethipian Airlines, but if you do, don't stay there. The girl at the reception retained our passaport until the next morning without any resonable justification for that. We arrived at night, after a... More

Spent 3 nights here on a vacation road trip. The Chuchill would like to compete with more upscale hotels in Addis but it's not ready for prime time yet. Showing its age a little. Friendly, helpful staff but had a hard time communicating. Either they didn't understand me or they simply didn't know the answers. No A/C in my room,... More

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to extend a recent stay in Addis. Because of all popular hotels fully booked due to conferences, I could not remain at my first choice and had to settle for the only hotel with a room available, the Churchill. I regard myself as a very adaptable person and will attempt to make the most... More
