    Shouldn't be Hilton brand.

    We checked in and got given dirty rooms - in a very tired, dated hotel. When we told the front desk duty manager that the rooms were dirty, she said 'That is what you paid for'. She then told us to sit down, as we shouldn't complain in front of other guests - and kept us waiting 20 minutes. After that, she was very keen to give us an upgrade. The rooms were much nicer - but the WiFi didn't work properly and one of the rooms had a cockroach. (All fairly harmless things, but avoidable). Food quality to the rooms was poor and the balcony door didn't close - required a technician to come and put in a temporary solution. Totally understand that it's Ethiopia - and some things won't be the same - but dirty rooms, cold food at this price should not happen.

    This hotel is an amazing throwback to another era. The hotel is a delightful oasis in Addis Ababa, it covers a huge area. In addition to the hotel, there's an Ethiopian Airlines office, travel agencies, variour retail, a supermarket - Rift Valley wine sold there - The property was full of life brought by tourists, NGO and other business people, and locals out for a good time. The bars and restaurants are excellent, the food was very good. The room felt like 1962 - great style, very clean, and everything worked fine. If you want a 21st century place with no character, this is not your place. I will be back here when I'm in Addis again.

    The property (my room) was old and stained. There are signs of water leak everywhere.
