This historic and the first international branded hotel in the country always exceeds my expectations. Its spacious rooms, hospitable staff and the value for many keep me back again and again. I know it need some sort of a face lift, still it the only gracious hotel in Ethiopia. Thanks for every thing.

Okay - the rooms could do with some touching, but the stuff is so friendly and helpful, overwhelming. And the location is just great. The place itself, shops, swimming pool, restaurants - superb. We are vegans and at breakfast and dinner they really did everything to please us. If we come back i will the the Hilton and nothing else.

Hilton Addis used to be a nice property. Now, it is outdated, dirty, shabby, and overpriced. Service is ok but very business-like, trying to extract money from you at every opportunity. The rooms are so bad, they are all smelly, dirty and broken, despite some efforts recently to paint the walls, etc. Although a welcome move, it is way not...

After an exhausting flight all my family wanted to do was sleep. We loved the friendly staff and front desk service. We were made to feel at home the moment we stepped off the shuttle. Although the bed was absolutely to die for, soft and cozy; the rather bland surroundings in the room was an awful let down. A crack...

I've stayed at the Hilton in Addis Ababa three times on business. It's a great hotel with reliable wi-fi, great customer service, and a lovely pool for relaxing on the weekends. The concierge is incredibly helpful if you are looking to book excursions or taxis. Always remember to negotiate with your taxis in Addis, but be respectful! Most destinations are...

On my return from India, I had a stay over in Addis Ababa and was fortunate to be treated to the Hilton. The kiosk at the airport already sells the place with its stunning pictures of the facility and on entrance at the gate, I was really impressed. It appeared more like a resort than a hotel and the walk...
