Great hotel with good service up to Radisson Blu standard. The in house restaurant does a real nice buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner or "a la carte". The room are modern and of a reasonable size with comfortable beds and a good stable internet connection.

The Radisson is right in the heart of Addis and is a world away from the hotels, and hotel prices, down in the Rift Valley. Having said that a few beers and a meal in this 5 star hotel will set you back about £25/head but the surroundings are sumptuous by comparison to rural Ethiopia and the service very accommodating....

Stayed at the hotel while holding a 2-day event here. Great ambiance. Very neat and clean. Professional and friendly staff. Rooms are comfortable and room-service is prompt. Their event facilities are also good, and their staff were more than willing to help with any requests that we had. Restaurants have a good variety of food and drinks. Would definitely recommend...

Service is very good, nice food at the restaurants. People are very kind. Rooms also very good and comfortable. I don't know much of Addis Ababa, but this hotel is good in any city! The transport from the airport to the hotel works nice without any problem, very reliable!

We just had a most unpleasant experience at the in house "bank" at the Radisson Blu that other future guests should be aware of. The "bank" will be very happy to take your currency and convert it to Ethiopian Birr but beware that you must hold onto your paper copy of the transaction or they'll not take back the Birr...

Hotel is located along a busy road but you won't notice this in the room. There is a security check when you enter but the staff basically goes trough the motions. Nothing is checked, you just have to put your bags through the scanner and walk through the detector. Beeping or not, people smile and let you pass. The rest...

This is a modern, spacious hotel in the heart of Addis Ababa. The staff are very friendly and the hotel has all the facilities needed for business or leisure. The rooms very very spacious and clean and the hotel feels safe and secure. My only criticism if the food at the restaurants was very poor.

My stay was great, I had meetings at the Hilton, and although it has a nice cafe meeting area, the Radisson Blu is a destination for modern middle class Ethiopians.
