It's got a nice location for transit passengers. The food was nice comparatively to the other hotels I have stayed in Addis. The rooms are clean and big. Staffs are friendly and helpful. They have atm service at the entrance and there are many shops for buying souvenirs around the hotel area.

My partner and I got offered this transit hotel by Ethiopian Airline when on a layover in addis. We were pleasantly surprised, the transfer to the hotel was simple, just a quick stop at the airline transfer desk for the transit visa form then shuttle bus to hotel only about 20 mins from the airport. The check in was fast,... More

Ethiopian Airlines put my partner and I up in this hotel as we were transiting through Addis. There was no one waiting at the hotel desk at the airport; in the end we walked outside and down the stairs to the car park where all the hotel buses are waiting. Check in at the hotel was fast, friendly and pleasant.... More

I stayed at the Churchill for a transit, the hotel is advertised to be a 4 star hotel but the only indication is the beautiful glass building on the outside, on the inside it is another story. I would rate it a 3 star at most. The room is also decorated nicely but certain amenities is old. Also no water... More

My work had booked a room for several nights at the Churchill well ahead of a large conference. When we made a last minute check it turns out they had cancelled the booking, despite sending us paperwork saying it was confirmed. I imagine they put the prices up and resold it when they realised that demand was high for the... More

As we work with coins we were so pleased to find out that the antique shops were right in front.We got a room with a huge veranda which had a lovely view to the city. The room had free wifi,which worked perfectly. The food... More

I was there in May 2015 for five nights. I must say, I was really reall concerned after reading a lot of negative reviews. In the end, I think the hotel is quite above the average level. The room was spacy and clean all the time. I hate bugs and I've only seen once, which can happen anywhere in the... More

This hotel is near the top a hill and traffic circle on a VERY busy road 24/7, overlooking two shanty areas. Its one of the noisiest hotels Ive ever stayed in. Arrival featured broken elevators, which meant I had to climb stairs to the higher floors with my luggage. The elevators were broken most of my stay, and you take... More

Had to stay here on account of a booking by Ethiopian Airlines. Location of hotel is not very good. The place is surrounded by slums and a noisy road. It took 30 min to reach the hotel from the airport. The room was large and the flooring was good, but the bathroom had leakages and water all over it. Lighting... More

I thought the Churchill Hotel was totally fine except for the neighborhood and street noise. My room (number 1102 on the 11th floor) was very clean and spacious. Everything worked well and we had hot water constantly throughout my 11 days stay. The generator kicked on twice when the power was cut. Breakfast was fine and a buffet. The biggest... More
