This hotel is exactly what you would expect from a multinational chain in an African city. Bog standard, but inefficient! The coffee at breakfast was quite the nastiest I have ever tasted, which is so sad in a country that grows some of the best coffee in the world. The food was pretty grim too. The room was large and... More

The staff is great and hotel is clean but showing its age from last renovation. The Executive lounge had no internet and limited food options. Very poor compared to other African hotels. The location is great for work at UN ECA and AU

For my money, the best hotel in Addis. It's not the newest, nor the most luxurious, but it is the most characterful. There is only a handful of international hotels in the city, and the Hilton beats the other two main contenders, The Radisson and Sheraton, in a number of important areas. Ambience, for one. It's lively, and full of... More

From the first moment you were considered as a guest of honor. Most of the staff knew your name and tried to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Especially Mrs Hebist Masresha , the Assistant Manager was continuously available to advice me and check if everything was OK. This was better than could be expected.

A hotel so luxurious that it is hard to realise you are in Addis Ababa, where harsh misery is only a few hundred meters away, in the streets. But Addis is a hub and hotels such as these absorb thousands of professionals every day, for meetings and conferences. Most who stay there have their sojourn paid by their employers. Few... More

I stayed 4 nights in Hilton Addis Ababa. The hotel has very good security guards, and they are friendly, excellent greenery area. Receptionists are friendly, even they gave free wifi passwords to use it for internet connection inside and outside the rooms. Swimming pool is equipped with heating system so even if the weather is cold outside it is OK... More

Waited over and hour at the Hilton desk at the airport and was told that we were waiting for other passengers. We arrived at the hotel at night and left early in the morning, so cannot say much about the hotel, other than it's tired and desperately needs a makeover. Security is good. All our bags were X-rayed before we... More

The Hilton in Addis Abeba is one of the traditional Hotels in town but very modern. The rooms are comfortable and invite for a quite sleep. The dishes are carefully selcted to the Needs of a Business traveler or Holiday maker. The employees are friendly and helpful. However, though the security is rather strigent but there are too many prostitutes... More
