Regular rooms are quite big, modern and very clean equiped with TV and some foreign chanels, WiFI and AC. Wifi connection is better at the lobby. The bed is very comfy and bedsheets are clean. Safe box in the closet plus additional service such as boiler, te bags, iron plank and hair dryer. The bathroom are also big and include...

Once you have passed through security (very comforting!) the hotel reception is large and spacious with beautiful flower arrangements. The café, bar and restaurant facilities are excellent, what a treat to come back to after a strenuous trip round the country. The food was simply outstanding, I could not recommend the hotel and services more.

Five stars all the way! From the excellent staff to the clean and modern hotel, everything about this place is five stars. The breakfast is wonderful with a wide selection of fruits, breads, juices, Ethiopian, and western dishes. The signature bar is fantastic with its offerings of small bites to cocktails. The buffet spread at restaurant Verres is scrumptious with...

I stayed here for a week of business, and found it to be a superb hotel. Very courteous staff from the front desk to the cleaning crew to the restaurant and fitness/spa. Lively in the public spaces but perfectly quiet rooms at night. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again.

The hotel is a very nice physical property. Rooms are nice. Staff are pleasant. Very helpful concierge. However, the amenities and service were not up to the price. The business class lounge offered relatively little for the extra $50 per night. I have not been able to get an invoice two weeks after check out despite the promise at check...

I were very pleased to have dinner in the restaurant. Restaurant managers, waiters, especially Ms. Tigist Wilde showed their great service and warm welcome. From soups to fruits all preffered cuisine was excellent. Thanks for your warm welcome.

The Radisson Blu in Addis is pretty good, but far from being the excellent hotel it claims to be. It is not. Their main problem is the inconsistency in service quality. Some staff members are kind, knowledgeable and exhibit lots of goodwill. One of the front-desk guys even volunteered to take my shoes out for cleaning, when I was surprised...
