“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Nice hotel, but a bit out of the way. Not far from the airport though and they run a complimentary shuttle. The rooms have 2 double beds which can be made into one. No amenities like shampoo or hairdryer. Staff very helpful.and free internet.

This is one of the nicest rooms I stayed at in Ethiopia . Good size clean very comfortable in an old fashion way. The staff was excellent and there is free internet . Breakfast good. Down side it is a bit out of the way in a safe but mostly commercial area away from tourist sites . A Few dollars and a cab ride will get you where you want to go
Good access to airport as near the Ring road and a free shuttle there as well.

Stayed here twice in October.
First time after an awful overnight from Bangkock (thanks Ethiopian Airways)
It is quiet so I slaept from 8 am to 1pm no problemA clean comfortable hotel - well located out of busy areas but walking distance to a market and nearby hills.Sauna and massage optional extras but well worth it.
Rooms are large and clean
Breakfast is really imaginative and tasty.
Can be a problem paying by card and had to go get cash but there are 3 ATMs nearby.Good local bars and cafés nearby.

Room Tip: go for a double rather than twin Not all rooms have great wifi connection 1 of my two rooms did

We had a nice visit at Panorama Hotel in Addis Ababa. The staff is really nice and all the time ready to help us. The rooms basic but very clean. The location is safe. The food was nice and sufficient and the breakfast fantastic!

Panorama is a new and very clean hotel relatively close to the new airport.

The staff are very friendly and Panorama offers many freebies; including airport shuttle pick up and drop off (a 12 to 15 minute ride), tasty breakfast (you may request a freshly made juice like papaya or other seasonal fruit), basic gym with new cardio machines, business center, conference hall, and wi-fi throughout the hotel. However, depending which room you get, it is best to ask for a room as close to the wi-fi modem in each floor. Given the fact that Ethiopia is still working on its net infrastructure, the net service is not bad at all.

Their dinner is also fresh and tasty with superb service, great attitude with a big smile, like most Ethiopians. There is a relaxing massage service available, too.

If you are looking for a convenient, clean and trouble free hotel Panorama is the place to stay in Addis Ababa.

Room Tip: If you want net service ask for a room close to the wi-fi modem. There is a modem in each floor.

The Panorama Hotel is not right at the centre of the city, and not right at the airport. We felt that some of the taxi drivers did not know where this hotel was located which Addis being a big city might not really be very strange.
The hotel was very satisfying. The rooms were clean, the restaurant served food that was maybe not up to our Canadian standard but very eatable. It has a very cozy sitting area/bar where one can watch TV while enjoying an excellent Ethiopian coffee or an equally excellent Ethiopian beer.
Having the internet in all the rooms was an added bonus.
