The hotel is situated in a good location. It has all the facilities and a heated swimming pool. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms and furniture are long due for renovation but they are clean. Benifits for Hilton Honors members such as a complimentary 4pm late check-out.

The Hilton Addis is another that detracts from the originasl brand image, as was the case in the Blackpool hilton recently. In Addis the issues were: poorly equipt basthroom, poor food and very noisy room, no blackout curtains, high charge for poor internet.

When in Addis you have to stay at the Hilton. Being an older hotel, it offers a unique elegant flair. It is well maintained and large, with several restaurants including a soulful jazz bar and a delicious pizzeria. The hotel attracts a bustling international crowd, and gets lively in the evenings. It has a busy lounge in the lobby area... More

We stayed for one night in this hotel. The swimming pool was the main reason that we decided to stay. It was lovely and well worth a visit. However you can use the swimming pool for a small fee even if you are not staying in the hotel. The hotel itself was ok the rooms were clean and had everything... More

I am pretty sure that there may not be another better hotel in Addis. The hotel is in the city; not exactly in the city centre but quite OK ! One has to take a taxi anyways. Rooms are very good and decent and they are of a good size too. Typical American breakfast but limited selection for vegetarians... correction..... More

I had an enjoyable time at the Hilton Addis Ababa - my home away from from home for a few weeks business in Ethiopia. The staff members were attentive and after a while anticipated my needs. Thanks to the staff in the hotel for a pleasant stay.

The Hilton is a big hotel, always busy and bustling with guest activity. The hotel is very dated and the rooms, especially the bathrooms need updating and refurbishment. A big plus for the Hilton are the outside gardens, pool area and supermarket. WiFi internet was very good, but not free. I stayed only one night at the Hilton, and preferred... More

My stay was warm and cozy. Loved the service and staff. They provide baby-sitter at reasonable price. The food was good and loved the natural spring water in the pool and the spa. Beautiful experience!

The Hilton in Addis has a lot going for it: great location, nice rooms, good service, good gym, nice heated swimming pool (geothermal, I think), lobby with a continuous coffee ceremony and very nice Ethiopian decorations. I want to comment on just two things which I hope management will pay attention to: (1) too many interruptions in the room. First... More
