standard is quite poor for an Hilton...old not renovated ...crowded and over priced ...really doesn't worth what you pay.When you arrive hotel seems better than what is in reality as the common areas are much better than the rooms....I would say is an hotel to avoid unless you are on airline voucher while in transit. Didn't try restaurants so can't... More

Stayed for half a day on the way out of Ethiopia between a morning flight from Axum and a 2 a.m. flight to Doha. On the way into the country, we stayed at the Sheraton, which is true 5 star hotel. Would have stayed there again but didn't want to spend $350 for a 1/2 day stay. So, settled for... More

Overall the hotel is tired. The internet was not working during my entire stay, even if it was, I consider it absurd to charge extra for in-room internet, when it is FOC in the lobby, albeit, from previous experience, very slow. I shiver when I think of how dirty the TV remote was.

I stayed at this hotel in 2013 and again this year in Sept 2014. As it turns out, I forgot to pick up about $200 I had left at reception as a deposit the first time I stayed. A whole year and several months later, I show up at reception and ask on a whim whether by some outstanding piece... More

Only stayed one night courtesy of Ethiopian Airways so I cannot comment on room prices however, the hotel was fantastic, very modern and helpful personnel that bent over backwards to ensure everything was in order. The room was large and comfortable with all the amenities you could want. They were very prompt with breakfast the next morning as I had... More

We stayed here for a week during an educator's conference held at the international school. The Hilton was one of the hotels recommended by the conference staff. On the plus side: the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the food in the restaurant was delicious, the hot springs-heated pool was enjoyable, the bed was comfortable, and the room was clean....

The Hilton worked well for my travel companion and I. We felt the rooms were clean and adequate for the rate and the staff provided courteous and timely service. The in-room dining service was timely and very good. The extra-fee for in-room internet seems unfortunate but the service is good. The overall hotel environment is clean and a credit to... More

The hotel is located in a nice green mountain area. View is excellent. Hot volcanic water is used in the pools with great view. Food is high quality international. Service is fast professional. Lounge is good but crowded. Wedding halls are always busy with cultural music.
