Value for money is not up for it. You can get better services at cheaper rate with modern amenities in other others in town. I paid $177 per night but was disappointment that it only cover the room. I had to pay extra for breakfast, internet, airport shuttle, and additional fees for breakfast if requested before 7 am when the... More

I was one of the organizers of a meeting that we hold. We booked 50+ rooms, and meeting facilities. The hotel needs some renovation....few of our colleagues decided not to stay in Hilton, rather went to Sheraton...and surprisingly with a lower pricve

I have visited the hotel twice in a space of 6 months. It took me a longer time to check into my room than to clear an equally trying immigration queue at the Bole airport. The management must really try and find a way to lessen the time it takes to check in. The food was however fantastic due to... More

I re-visited the Hilton after a two year absence and was struck by the feeling of familiarity. This was both good and bad - the nice, relaxed atmosphere remained, as did the good amenities such as pool, gym.and restaurant. However nothing had been done by way of renovation and the rooms are now seriously showing signs of age. I was... More

Arriving at the Addis airport, you can go straight to the Hilton booth where they will take your name (to check your reservation) and then escort you to the Hilton shuttle (which you will be charged for on check-out, but at a reasonable rate). This is especially nice if you're arriving from Europe or the U.S. after midnight. The Hilton's... More

I reserved the Presidential Suite for a party of 6 after a wedding - printed the confirmation - only to find that the room had been changed and I had not been informed! So much for being a Gold member. I hope the stay is better than the customer service.

Hilton Addis has a conveniently-located booth in the international arrivals area of the airport. Use it; it's worth the convenience. Ephrem, the attendant there, was my first interaction with the hotel and his professionalism and efficiency made a great first impression. After the speedy 10 minute conveyance, I was greeted by the concierge, who was always very professional and pleasing.... More

I read the many disparaging reviews about this hotel after I had booked, so I was rather concerned what I was letting myself in for. The hotel was better than I expected. The room was clean, the service was great. I get it that the Hilton should probably start thinking about a refurb - there is a lot of old... More
