Recently spent four nights here while attending some meetings in Addis - perfectly located for where I needed to get to, though quite noisy at night. Nice big room with plenty of hot running water, television in the room, but no wifi. Staff were helpful, food was OK.

Got a flight delay for 8 hrs to Beijing. Flying business the airlines put us up in the downtown Hilton . I was not impressed with the room. The rooms for 6 people were stripped down. No bottle water, no tooth brushes, no shampoo or amenities. We did get breakfast coupons, but no slippers no coffee maker or robes. I have stayed at better 3star hotels that supply all of the above amenities .
I complained at the front desk before we were picked up about the stripped down rooms . We didn't get checked in until 1:30AM. We were probably just concerned with bed time because we had to leave at 6:00AM for our shuttle to the airport. The buffet we got with are room did't open till
6:00AM so the breakfast wasn't really available because we had to leave at the time they opened.
I will say the (Buffet) dinner the night before was pretty good. So I would have to give credit for that. I asked everybody there if they had amenities in their rooms, the next morning before we left
and all replied in the negative. Apparently they set a group of rooms aside for such occasions. And probably charge the airlines for 5 star accommodations. Which fell short of 3. I wouldn't stay there primarily for their cheapness if the opportunity were to arise again. I would request another
Hotel. Due to the fact our luggage was kept on the plane it would have been nice to have your toiletries because the hotel Hilton was too cheap to supply them. There wasn't any information in the room or on the telephone to call. And the matter was really in poor taste . The way it wad handled.I used to stay at the Hilton Hotels, but stopped because of their marketing practices"

Room Tip: I would stay at the Sheraton or Intercontinental or Raddisson Blu before the Hilton. The intercontin...

I was put up in this hotel by an airline as I had missed a connecting flight. I would never willingly pay for this atrocity of a hotel. Staff are rude and unfriendly, rooms are cold, untidy with smelly bathrooms.Beds in rooms are very hard and uncomfortable. You do not ever want to stay in this hotel. Avoid it at all costs

We have had a four day stay at the Panorama hotel and have found the hotel very comfortable, clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We will recommend this hotel to friends and family for future stays in Addis. The restaurant has nice food especially the local dishes and cheese burgers :)

The staff here were very helpful- only thing I would suggest is that you make sure the internet is working when you arrive. I had issues with the internet during my stay. The manager however was very helpful with any requests that I had and overall had a pleasant experience.
