4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is old, and the rooms and entrance could do with some refurbishment. However, staff are wonderfully warm, friendly and welcoming, and that alone makes up for a world of faults. The shuttle from the airport was efficient, with the shuttle bus driver even helping me sort out payment of my visa on arrival fees with a loan from... More

I am still in Hilton Addis. Its a very good hotel, great food, nice recreation facilities, Okay rooms generally. HOWEVER, the biggest undoing with Hilton Addis is the unregulated SMOKING all over the place. The lobby is full of smoking and yet has the gateway to the lifts, the dining area, the reception. this means every guest has to have... More

Hilton Addis has a distinctive African design that shows its age, but provides a very friendly and somewhat informal atmosfere. Please bear in mind that you are in Africa and that a non functioning elevator can be part of the deal. Service is great and so is the quality in the restaurants.

I have stayed at the Sheraton Addis on 4 previous trips and were not sure of booking in to the Hilton. What a pleasant surprise! Although the Sheraton is simple opulence compared to the Hilton (and so the cost) it surprised me with some old school charm and although the décor is outdated and not up to latest it was... More

Overall a reasonable hotel that could easily be excellent with a room refurbishment, which, having read manager replies,it's seems is on the way, but yes, it needs doing as a priority or business will be lost. The bathrooms particularly need completely re doing and are not up to the price of the hotel. The bar, pools, restaurant lobby and services... More

This hotel has highest standards in service. The room preparation was excellent, the restaurants serve delicious lokal and international dishes and the personnel was the friendliest ever. It was a pleasure to be guest there.

The narrow entrance of the Hotel made me nervous and unsure. However, once in side, the Hotel seemed like a planet with all features. The fact that, i didn't step out of the hotel for essential purchases and services. I always like those hotels that have many things on offer for an emergency shopping. The high point of my stay...
