This is a long-established and well-managed hotel catering to international diplomats, bureaucrats and tourists. It is centrally located and has a splendid swimming pool fed by a hot-spring source, excellent gardens and a variety of good restaurants. The rooms are comfortable but a little tired.

The hotel was nice and the options for food and drink were good. The only thing is I wish i would have known that the Internet doesn't work properly. Not the hotels fault, but the internet in the city isn't really available most of the time. They said the city was working on it,but I just wished I would have... More

Some pluses: the staff are really nice and helpful and I got an early check in with no problems. There is also a good exec lounge on the top floor with a good range of food for breakfast and early evening and wines, coffee, tea, soft drinks and cakes available all day. A good outdoor terrace with pool and gardens-... More

The hotel is not the most updated in Addis but there is no better fitness center (huge, everything works, opens at 5am and has excellent staff). The overall hotel staff is very hospitable as well and the grounds are wonderful with gardens, grass, trees. It is an oasis in Addis.

The Hilton Addis Ababa is one of the oldest hotels in the city. This means that it can be slightly dated in some of its decor but it also means that even though it is part of an international chain, you still feel like you are in Africa. Why stay in the Sheraton when you could be in any city... More

Staying in Ethiopia is always a pleasure at Addis Hilton. There is a unique atmosphere here due to its unrivaled history unparalleled style and unquestionable importance. But don’t let these elements make you think this is a hotel dependant on past glories. It is its present unique style that I love. And the attention to detail by the staff. You''ll... More

The hotel is centrally located and the best part are the gardens--pool, tennis courts, gazebo restaurant etc. A little oasis in Addis to relax and enjoy sitting outside with music and good weather (Addis has a nice temperate climate). The rooms are spacious and I loved the ceiling to floor glass doors that opened out to a nice private balcony... More

The hotel is situated in the centre of Addis, easy approach. It is used as a regular business meeting place. Hilton has high value and reputation in front of the business people. The price is high comparing to value and the Wifi is weak and out for hours. The staff is nice and helpful. The problems are beyond them.
