Stayed for two nights which were unfortunately spoilt by a noisy generator from another building next to the hotel. The airport shuttle was there on time , but then I had to wait for over an hour to get to my hotel as it waited for another passenger who we eventually left since the person had not arrived. Check in went smoothly and the wifi worked in the lobby and it appears all floors ( based on comments from colleagues) but not in my seventh floor bedroom. The room was spacious , sheets and bathroom were clean, but the mattress was rather hard. There is equipment for making tea but no kettle. I did not bother to ask for hot water in the thermos jug provided.
Room service- a response took so long I decided to go to the dining room instead, where the food was fine but rather bland.
Would I return, with the abundance of competition from other hotels- perhaps not. I would also request for a room at the front of the building away from the noise of other people's generator. The front desk did offer to change my room, but early in the morning, which would have been a major upheaval. The staff are very polite. Management just needs to be wary of being happy with standards which can easily be improved. Addis is also still appearing as a major building site, so somethings are out of the control of the hotel management e.g. Muddy sidewalks.
