I am beginning to think there are no good hotels in Addis, another disappointment with this hotel, the rooms were not up to standards, the bathrooms in the rooms were in very poor state, the lobby was full of prostitutes soliciting, the front desk was extremely slow, the breakfast buffet one of the poorest I have seen, quiet disappointed in...

Stayed here whilst attending a conference. Was well looked after. Some small tech glitches like the safety boix did not work, the room door handle faulty, and internet patchy and only available near reception. Pool was nice dip after work.

Not a real Intercon, but I was actually happy that it wasn't. Had a few rough edges which were nice and relaxing. Overall comfort in the rooms, gym and rooftop pool were great (loud music blaring in gym a good incentive to get up there), hotel shuttle to airport was excellent.

The food in the hotel is of very low quality. The lamps in the room are partially working and the TV doesn't swith...

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...

I attended a 3 day conference but did not get a chance to stay at the hotel. The conference facilities were great, the food and snacks were scrumptious. 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...
