I spent a night in transit. The room was large and clean. The staff very charming and always ready to help. The room and the bathroom require renovation in order to deserve higher rating. Only one unique french channel on the TV.

The property is quite large, but you would never think you're in a Hilton. Rooms are getting old. My first room had stains on the carpet, while the second one was better. Bathroom is old as well and in both my rooms it was difficult to keep the water temperature setting at the same level. But overall, the rooms are... More

I stayed almost one week in this hotel for a nearby congress. The hotel has very nice facilities (lobby, breakfast room, shops), so that one does not really need to leave the hotel area. The rooms could need some refurbishment - but their interior is very fine (good beds etc.). Rooms were very clean!

The stay was a complimentary 1-night one courtesy Ethiopian Airlines while in transit. Rooms were dated, but large and clean. The bed was comfortable enough for a good night’s sleep. Toiletries were from Peter Thomas Roth. Our balcony looked out over the pool, tennis court and kids’ play area. The pool looked inviting but was being cleaned the day we... More

Many amenities, which in... More

Collectively, all the reviews here on Tripadvisor are spot on: Yes, this hotel is in a great location in central Addis. Yes, the staff are friendly, welcoming and happy to help in any way they can. Yes, the hotel's grounds are impressive (remember this is in the middle of a major metropolis) with a thermal outdoor pool, minigolf course, lots... More

Huge lobby, infrastructure, tennis, pool, spa, gym ... its infrastructure is overwhelming. Food is good especially menu from terrace restaurant. Restaurants inside need better menu as a hilton restaurant. Garden is very nice. To minius all of this is old looking as at 80"s time. Rooms are very clean but need refresh. Service no doubt the best.

I liked the Hilton before but now it's just all downhill and I won't stay again. As for the good, this hotel has something not many others have - interesting character. You get a sense that this is where things happen, and there's history here. A fellow American commented in the elevator that the hotel hasn't changed at all since... More
