Terrible hotel, it would only be in the fitness of things that they start a Hilton horrors program to supplement the Hilton Honors program. For the price i paid, it was crap. Smaller hotels offer better value for money in Addis but I had to stay here as this was the conference hotel.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed November 15, 2016

After much internal debate, I'm rating this hotel 5-stars. For starters, the staff were uniformly wonderful...warm, helpful, professional. The restaurant in the main building has a nice buffet, and the Gazebo restaurant, by the (geothermal....WARM) pool, is very pleasant. Room service is quick and well-priced. Yes, as noted by the other reviewers, the facilities are not quite up-to-date or, in...

The Hilton hotel in Addis Ababa is very good. Service and food are excellent, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Beds are very comfortable and the rooms are very clean.However the hotel is in an older building and the facilities are ready for updating. The fitness facility is also very good.

I do like this hotel over some of the more modern hotels available, as it feels like it has stories to tell. Yes, the rooms are tired and the food average, however, its worth it for the view of the city around you. The pool is okay, however, it needs to be cleaned more regularly and is very busy at...

The grounds of the Hilton are nice. It is on top of a hill, and there is a nice pool area. There is also a small bakery and a convenience store as well within the walls. I think they open their gym to outside guests, which make it a bit busy in the morning. The breakfast buffet is great, and...

The staff and services at this hotel were great. They took care of whatever issues came up during my time in Addis. The location makes it easy to get to most places in the city pretty quickly. There also many amenities available on sight, bank, shops, bar, restaurants, and a nice pool.

one thing about this hotel and most of Ethiopia, is the people. staff are friendly, smiling and fantastic. rooms are average, but okay. Room service was disappointing and expensive. Location is perfect from a business perspective and outdoor facilities are good.

Helpful staff. Nice food. They have an Ethiopian airlines counter in the hotel itself. Enjoyed my stay there. Loved the barley snack that they served with beer. It's a good property to walk around as well.
