Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place is a bit dated. Could use a remodel. But it's nice, location is good, good restaurants, great common areas/grounds, and friendly staff. And seems to be quite safe, too. I'll stay there again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 March 2017

Wow! I have to confess, I never expected to see such a beautiful and excellent Hilton Hotel in Ethiopia, and I say this positively. The hotel was beautiful, the rooms were much more modern than many of the hotels I have visited around the world. The staff was just pleasant. Talk about the restaurant, If I had two stomachs, oh...

A decade after my last stay, I was pleasantly surprised the Addis Hilton remains a solid option. Great bed, great wifi (streaming quality! In Addis!), nice large TV with easy HDMI connectivity for your laptop. All the other things you'd expect from a Hilton. Stayed for a conference, found the $150/night corporate rate good value for money. Addis is developing...

Centrally located, the Hilton Addis Ababa has lots to offer. It is a big, sprawling hotel with restaurants, bars, conference facilities stores and even a big Ethiopian Airways travel office. Check in was quick and easy, staff were very professional and helpful in all my dealings, whether it was room service, restaurant, bar, gym, or airport transport. The public rooms...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Its a huge hotel so its advisable to stay in the main tower as its closer and more lively. Reception staff including managers are quite rude and racist. We were first given a room far away from the lobby and then changed back before the end of the day. Waiter Staff are very nice...

That Hilton allows their name to be used on this hotel will forever make me think twice before booking a Hilton. The Hotel is not simply old or outdated it is filthy and broken. The first room I was sent to looked as though it had just hosted a Frat party and all someone did was make up the bed...

The hotel is very old, however, that is forgotten after a while as the staff are just amazing. They really make you feel special. The pool area outside is beautiful to just relax when you have a little time off.

There are a few International Hotels in Addis, but I opted for the Hilton. Firstly, I would say I felt very safe in the Hotel. The Limo was searched on arrival and then airport style security takes over before you enter the lobby. Check in was very welcoming indeed. The duty manager visited to check on my wellbeing and the...

This place offers a safe play ground for children. The place has old building but relatively beautiful swimming pool and friendly staff. It offers a variety of services though I did not manage to book a room here. Overall, it provides a safe haven for family with children in need of some play ground or just to relax!!
