Comfortable stay and service was great. The food was great and breakfast had variety. The hotel is a little far from the airport although the hotel provides shuttle service at a fee. Generally, a pleasant stay.

Wifi troubles had nearly driven me insane, so I needed a hotel with strong and reliable internet for an online conference in which I was a speaker. I needed certainty. The Radisson prices were not as high as the Hyatt ($300/nt) and not as low as some other local hotels ($50/nt). I booked on Expedia and saved a few bucks. The Radisson staff was consistently helpful and friendly. From the security outside to the room service inside, the staff was great. Even when I needed a quiet space at 10pm to do my talk, the staff exhibited a can-do attitude and didn’t make me feel like I was asking for too much. While at the hotel, I also got a 1 1/2-hour Swedish massage (loved it!) and used the gym (had everything I needed). My wife got the 1-hour Swedish one day and the hot stone massage the next. She was happy. What made her happiest was that the hotel had a bathtub. These are hard to find in Addis Ababa hotels. The café had good coffee and pastries, and the service was great. If there was one weakness, it was the bar restaurant service. The food took long to prepare even though I was the only person there. I returned a couple of weeks later, and had the same experience. The service was slow and not as attentive. They didn’t have the same high level of service I experienced in other parts of the hotel. Also, a quick tip. Breakfast buffet is 600 ETB per person. If you don’t eat a lot for breakfast, you can save by booking a room with no breakfast and then something like an omelet from the room service menu for 200-something. The lunch buffet is 700ETB/person. My wife and I ordered from the restaurant menu for lunch and spent more doing that than if we had ordered the buffet. Just FYI. Oh, and room service is great! Overall, this has become one of my favorite hotels in the city, especially for business-related trips that require certainty. All the food was good. Staff was great. Rooms were comfy. Gym and spa were perfect. The only thing the hotel doesn’t have is a swimming pool.
