So I know the title got your attention, but in reality it's not what you think. I struggled a bit with the showerhead at this hotel and it took them two days to fix (if only I had a screwdriver....). It is one of those extended bath-tub tap things and it kept falling over. Otherwise, I'm not so sure this...

I enjoyed my stay for 4 nights at the hotel. The Wifi in the rooms is great, not so great when you leave the room but that's fine. Social media was blocked at the time in the country but there are innovative ways of getting around this. The hotel staff were all friendly and useful. The taxis outside the hotel...

I must start by saying I haven't stayed at the hotel but I am temporarily living nearby. I used to go swimming to Hilton but I was not impressed by their service or general atmosphere. I actually felt uncomfortable swimming there. I decided to try another pool and I went to check Intercontinental as a friend had told me the...

Bathrooms were also nice and clean in the conference area. Forgot my small adapter and the old man responsible for maintenance was only to happy to help me look for it and...

Don't be fooled - it's not an IHC. There are better hotels close by, so there's no earl reason for choosing somewhere where the Internet is mainly off and the hot water is ... cold. The staff are trying hard but it's not as good as it should be. The rooms are quite comfortable and the bar is ok. It's...

We chose the Intercontinental because we have stopped in numerous before and consider them an excellent choice. However, this one has to be the worst for many reasons. It did have some positives - the staff were mainly polite and the main part of our room was clean and reasonably decorated. However, the bathroom was in a state of disrepair...

working there is difficult as the internet is often off, the electricity is off in Addis every day for 10 minutes , this is difficult but not as difficult as the internet not working. The food is good in the bar, the curry was excellent.
