I have now stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Addis Ababa twice during my visits to Ethiopia on business. Whilst the hotel may be fairly old by many standards I have found the hospitality, all-round service and facilities to be really great. There is a definite sense of "Old School" hospitality in all staff engagements. I agree with one of... More

I stayed here overnight whilst transiting through Addis Ababa. The hotel has a great sense of occasion and one can easily imagine it hosting heads of state and other dignitaries in its time. It is however fallen behind the times and the guest room furnishing, bathrooms etc. leave one a feeling a little like the hotel could do better. The... More

Would have expected a better standard from Hilton Hotel. Very old and some wear and tear is obvious. Rooms are clean and staff is very friendly, helpful always with a smile. Location is quite close to airport. TV shows quite a few international channels.

This hotel needs updates but still I feel at home. Staff are friendly and willing to offer their services which is quite refreshing in Africa. Room is spacious and comfortable. I have no hesitation to return but would appreciate modernization in bath room.

The Hilton is a haven of peace in a bustling city. While the accommodation could do with modernisation, especially the bathrooms, the public rooms are bright, cheerful and staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly. Outdoor bar, restaurant, swimming pools and sports facilities are well designed and welcoming. Food is varied to suit most tastes and includes interesting and local dishes.... More

Had to stay the night in Addis Ababa due to flight delays and was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The room was nice and large and clean. Everything worked. Wifi in the room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant buffet was great with a wide variety of local and international cuisine. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive... More

In general, the check-in process was too long; too many "in-transit" passengers. The room heater was not working. So, if you are arriving late night/early morning and already have a reservation, you may need to think twice because it is not easy getting to your room.

We stayed here courtesy of Ethiopian Airlines after missing our flight connection at ADD. Luckily the airline provided shuttle service, room cost and three meals. We were glad to be put up in a brand hotel and we are Hilton HHonors members so were curious to see how this hotel shaped up. It was older and more worn than we... More

This is the worst hotel with the staff with the "I dont care" attitude. As business a traveler - you expect safe and confortable accomodations - This hotel does not provide any of that. The food gives you food poisoning and airconditioners do not work.
