Nice Hotel, good ambience and Very good service. Food is pretty good but you will get bored, if you are staying for more than 2 days as the buffet menu is 90% same (or at least it was the same when I stayed in this Hotel).

Excellent hotel and food well balanced. Internet should not be charged for in this era. If you must charge then include it in the room rate. To ask everybody to come to the lobby for free internet is unnecessary.

The airport-style security at this hotel was very off-putting and cumbersome. The hotel decor is very dated and the rooms are straight from the '70s and in dire need of renovation. Front desk service was unsatisfactory, providing wrong information and inducing an unprecedented 30-minute check-out.

Just back from 3 nights at Hilton Addis. It pretends to have all the facilities of a hotel of its standard, but it is definitely dated. Check in procedures are long (airport check in may be faster). Good location, nice swimming pool. Ok for a short business stay

Hilton Addis is an old Hotel but it still has its glamor. Its located perhaps at the best spot in Addis - near the palace, town center, airport and places of interest. It has a fairly good restaurant and a great bar where you can meet many Addis residents. Food in the restaurants could do with some improvement but can... More

I have been to different other hotels in USA, Europe and the Middle East countries, and I really didn't expect that Hilton Addis Ababa will be at the same level, or even much better than lots of other hotels. The location of the hotel is excellent , the room was very clean and relaxing, and most of the staff were... More

Overall a very pleasant place to stay with a great pool. Very comfortable bed and nice view of pool and gardens. Food choice was a bit limited. There was a problem changing money but this was due to electricity cuts, not the hotel
