Located in what thay call in town addis , i think they mean downtown but i found it very strange to have several shops selling coffins just oposite this hotel. Hotel is in very urgent need of remake. From the moment you enter the lobby you just feel thrown back in time. Rooms are large but very dirty . Beds... More

we have stayed there for one night allocated by ethiopian airlines. Not very friendly. The dinner and breakfast were very basics. During breakfast i asked for water, the only answer was it is 2$ ! You have to leave your passport at the reception. Bedrooms facing the street are very very noisy. Rooms are clean

I stayed here for a week whilst attending a conference held in the hotel. After travelling north returned to the hotel for two nights. For the price the hotel delivered very well. The buffet became somewhat monotonous after six days, but I suspect that is Western rather than African taste - our conference participants came from all over Africa and... More

We read the reviews and were a bit concerned about staying at the Churchill. The hotel was booked for us by Ethiopian Airlines who had rescheduled our flight to the next day. However, when we got there it wasn't as bad as what previous visitors said. Our room smelt a bit musty but it was spacious and the bed was... More

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.
