Have stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. I visit Addis regularly and have stayed so far first in Hilton and then in Sheraton. Tried the Radisson this time because Sheraton was way overpriced. I was very positively surprised by Radisson. Absolut quick and professional check-in. Very nice and spacious rooms with all comfort. Very good bed. Excellent...

The Radisson in Addis Ababa is well located, beautifully furnished, well equipped but so full of itself that every now and again the mask slips. They management of this hotel should reconsider that branding and hardware alone do not make for a good hotel. I stayed here six times over an eighteen month period. I have stayed at many Radisson...

Excellent hotel in Addis -- it's particularly good for business travel, as you will find many people from the international development community staying here, and the Ethiopian government is often willing to meet here as well. Everything from the rooms to the service is impeccable. My only caution is to be a bit wary with the restaurant food as there...

We stayed for 2 nights - 1 at either end of our trip to Ethiopia. The hotel is close to the airport and within walking distance of a number of cafes and restaurants. Rooms are modern and well appointed - wifi is good - staff are excellent. Food perhaps a little pricey but very good. You cannot do any better.

Close to the airport with great access to downtown Addis, and with exceptional service from the front desk to the concierge to the restaurant. No pool, but has a gym, spa and patio café. Excellent breakfast buffet!

Location The hotel is located in the centre of the city but in a relatively quiet area. They operate an airport shuttle every 30minutes and takes about 15 minutes to/from Bole airport. To other areas of Addis Ababa like Mercado or the national museum is around 10 minutes drive away. The location is perfect for business or leisure in the...

All in all a very good hotel. Food was lovely, rooms neat and clean, wifi good, staff tentative, everything you expect from a hotel as such. Had slight issue with taxi's being organised by the hotel dropping us off at wrong restaurant, but all in good experience.
