Was again looking for a "good" overall rating... In the African context this is probably better than "average", but "very good" is just a bridge too far. General comfort, cleanliness and facilities are adequate, but there are lots of signs of wear and tear. Room had a funky smell when I checked in that fortunately dissipated later on (probably a...

Recently visited Addis Ababa and was at the Hotel Intercontinental. Nice coffee experience at the reception, lovely gardens and great swimming pool. The hotel does need some refreshing though. The rooms require updating.

I am writing this review even if it is a bit late, just to rate how pleasant my stay in this hotel was. Stayed for 6 nights at this hotel. Although, there were some challenges in the check-in process, I am glad that a lady was serving (selling) Ethiopian coffee for us, allowing me to experience first hand the distinct...

The name of the hotel is the only international thing in this hotel. It's a 3 stars hotel, managed by local staff, which have been very very generously given with 5 stars by the local government. Do not expect more than that before booking.

Not worth being rated 5* :v loud music,coackroaches in bathroom, glasses hardly replaced in rooms, chemical laden smelly rooms as they were sprayed daily. Tables hardly set for breakfast and it was hard to get cups and most of us resorted to using bowls to take coffee ,juice.... Otherwise good food though at times cold and mostly not labelled!!!!

Decent rooms and good food! Service and Internet speed, both were slow! My stay was during the African Union conference period, was told that the internet speed generally becomes an issue in Addis during such meetings (which I am not aware and knew!)

Stayed here for work for a few days. The hotel is well located, near to the airport, and close to all the other hotels. Taxis available all the time, no problem getting around. Staff were really helpful - I was able to have my room immediately, despite arriving early on an overnight flight. They helped with taxis, restaurant recommendations, and...

The corner queen suite I was in was of a decent size with a well appointed bathroom (and toiletries). There is a bonus of exceptionally forgiving and accepting plugs with adaptors for pretty much every plug type imaginable. There was an in room wifi router but it could be a bit temperamental as it was on and off with so...

Enjoyed my stay at this facility. I loved my beautiful large corner room which gave me an good view of the city landscape! Food was good though the Ethiopian cuisine is very spicy. The F&B staff were very helpful during the 3 day conference held at at the premises.
