I had stayed at this hotel 15 years ago. Unfortunately, it has not been updated. While it has a nice restaurant, good shopping and is convenient, there is a need to give the lobby an updated look. Also, the executive floor rooms need to be updated. A word of advice is to book the executive floor before you leave. It... More

A bit overpriced for a city like Addis, a bit old-fashion and under maintained, but still A Hilton. Large rooms, friendly staff and a great breakfast. The food prices (we had lunch and dinner) are high, but the food is good. In general, a nice place to stay if you can afford it.

The hotel needs new carpet, paint, role, everything! The food was good, the staff helpful and I felt safe enough, but I really didn't want to stay there. The internet was spotty at best and the rates were really high for the quality. I did like the pool and fitness center and the spa dogs an excellent job too. Despite... More

Did not love this hotel at all. It is dated, the rooms are moldy smelling and the bathrooms look like they are falling apart - this is no more than a 3 star hotel at best. On the plus side they have an excellent gym and swimming pool, nice grounds, and the staff were very nice. But no way would... More

Very friendly and very helpfull staff. Cosy atmosphere. Great place to stay if you manage to survive the shower experience: from no water at all to soothing hot over icecold and back in less than 3 minutes. If the sound of the water jet (or rather drip) changes: jump to safety.
