Excellent hotel. Better value than the Sheraton or Hilton. Meals were fantastic, Internet was included, and the service was extraordinary. Not located in a "walking " neighborhood per se, but the nicest oasis in Addis. I stayed 18 nights. If you still like a hotel after 18 nights it is a keeper. Dave C

I have been staying in Radisson hotels for many years now - hence the familiarity. Hotel was good - rooms were decent size and the access to business lounge was great. The breakfast was nice with a decent spread and so was the italian dinner place. Watching a good match with beer in the Lounge was perfect.. all in all a good stay.. perhaps the hotel can do something about the unwanted advances made by girls sitting in Bar area - sure they are not staying in hotel. Would stay again.

This hotel was one of the best places I've ever stayed at. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everyone seemed genuinely nice- from the security people to the housekeeping to the manager. And since I was traveling alone, I had small and enlightening chats with some of the hotel staff. I can see the beautiful view of the city and the mountains from my room window. Which was interesting to see specially at night. Inside, it was extremely quiet and I didn't hear a single noise either from outside the hotel or the other rooms. The room serviced-meals were also delicious and is affordable (there was a free breakfast buffet but I was not able to sample it because I was in a hurry to travel on the next day). There is also an Ethiopian Airlines office inside the hotel for travelers who need to make quick changes or add trips in their flights. If ever I came by Addis Ababa in the future, I'll definitely stay at Radisson Blue again.

I registered to the Business class section, they have excellent services. The breakfast and lunch are just as we want, light and simple but very good and fast. Very polite, friendly and good service, with a smile. Rooms are nice and clean, well equiped with nice bathroom. Excellent bedding.
Only regrets: the gym is small (very nice spa however, but I am a weight training addict!), and the wireless was not very good in my room (but I was able to get it in the business lounge anyway).
As regards location, it is very convenient for meeting around UNECA, and it is convenient to have meetings at the café.

Room Tip: pay an extra $ on the business class section, it worth it

Thank you very much for making Radisson Blu Hotel Addis Ababa hotel of your choice on your recent visit to Addis and for the positive comments you have shared with us here on Trip advisor.
I understand from your comment that the efficient service delivered by our staff, quality and variety of our breakfast and dinner buffet in Verres en Vers restaurant and cleanliness of our rooms along with the central location of the hotel were all to your liking.
Your concern with regards to our internet connection is well noted, we are working very hard to tackle this problem with our service provider as the shortcoming is from their side.
I very much look forward to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.
