At a conference

This hotel was okay for a meeting. It is within walking distance of the "conference center", but there is a lot of traffic in the evenings. The room was fine, amenities adequate including cookies and cakes everyday! So even though breakfast was not included, it was enough for me with the instant coffee provided. The fitness center is good and the sauna and hot-tub were either too hot or not hot enough. I used them anyway. It is Africa! The pool was a nice size, but I did not use it because the fitness center was good.

Not like home...

I enjoyed my stay. After I realized the Hilton is one of the better hotels in Addis. Compared to other hotels in Addis the Hilton is high class, compared to other Hilton hotels in the U.S., not so much.

Long Weekend

In line with all other reviews I've seen, I have to agree & confirm that, yes, this hotel requires a good dose of modernising. The general impression around the hotel is that it varies between looking a bit tired to downright scruffy. The room was nice & clean, the towels & bedding were fine but the bathroom was a bit nasty. Dark, looked like it could have done with a good scrub & the marble basin surround had huge cracks in it that had a bit of filler applied sometime in the last 20 years. The food I have to say is far, far better in both quality and price than I experienced at the Sheraton recently. In the evening, the atmosphere is great. Because the prices are extremely reasonable, this brings in the local after work crowd & it makes for a really enjoyable night. Finally to the staff. Superb! I really don't want to criticise them at all but, perhaps, a little bit of training wouldn't go amiss in certain areas. You would find it hard to come across a more pleasant, friendly and eager to please bunch anywhere in the world, they are a credit to the hotel and are likely one of the main reasons that makes it a lovely place to stay. It will never be a five star hotel, in fact, I think that 4 stars is really pushing it a bit. 3 max in my humble opinion BUT there is the garden & the pool, so that is likely what they sell it on. And the garden bar is a great place in the evening. The local band they had on was super. Is the hotel worth the price of the room? Absolutely not. Will I go again? Definately yes!

old and tired

The Hotel is falling apart. Plaster falling off the walls in the hallways, bath taps and shower heads that don't work properly. Balcony doors that don't slide well and don't lock. The Sauna is long over due for a renovation it is less hygienic than the public hot springs. A comment over heard from a sauna user was that the Hilton is dying, The reality is that the whole hotel is in a desperate need of a full renovation. In the west we are in 2013 so WIFI is free in most places even budget hotels. Maybe because the Hilton Addis is 8 years behind WIFI is not free. Not even in the lobby. I can easily name 4 other 4star hotels with in walking distance who can at least provide WIFI for free in the lobby. I could even name 3 other budget hotels that provide WIFI for free. Come on Hilton it costs you nothing to provide free WIFI. I found the food average. But after 5 years of traveling to Addis I am not surprised by the poor standard of food, even at the Hilton. The menus are simple, nothing original, the western dishes are cooked badly and show no real understanding of the dishes themselves. The Lunch buffet was made more promising because a buffet is all you can eat. Unfortunately the deserts looked like they all came from a factory in europe rather than being produced by a local pastry chef. Corked wine was being served in the executive lounge. It is the small things that matter and there was a lot of the small stuff missing (and I don't mean soap etc). I think the only thing that gives this hotel its stars, are its staff. Friendly, helpful, courteous and professional.

Overpriced for the amenities. Decent location, but desperately in need of an overhaul.

My stay at Hilton

Orbitzbooked my flight and hotel, they had me checked in a dat before my flight was to arrive. so I lost money. If this is not re=emburst to me. I can not used this service again. The HILTON is an old hotel, althought you can hear some noises for near by rooms. the hotel offer everything and I do mean every thing. But not too sure I would stay there again because of the lost of money booking my stay before the flight arrived.
