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

There is very little to commend this hotel and I concur with other negative reviews regarding this hotel. I was given their suite on the top floor which suggests was their best room. Only one ceiling light worked. The TV did not work.The bath leaked. Shady looking characters roamed the corridor which itself was dimly lit as only one light... More

They don't care about customer service. They did not even have the essentials such as thoothpaste in the hotel rooms. Ayyy I regret sleeping there. Tha k God it was just for few hours. It's definitely not a 3 stars hotel. They need serious help from the show "Hel Hotel".

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
