Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service
Reservation was totally screwed up to the point where my three traveling companions and I ended up sharing one room (two single beds and two mattresses on the floor) after previously making reservations for two rooms for two people each. Since the Ghion had "lost" our reservations (which I don't believe since they later "found" mine) they also didn't provide a shuttle from the airport. A totally dissatisfying experience on all levels.

I have been staying at the Ghion Hotel when in Addis for the past three years,3+ times/year. It was great to see the improvements being made on this visit. The food was also much better at the non-traditional restaurants. The traditional food restaurant and food has always been good and reasonable.

Fab location
This hotel has a fabulous location. I know it from old and it is disappointing to visit and not have water in the room and especially hot water - there is a randomness to water. The hotel feels "tired" and even the once lovely gardens are lacking colour and care The staff in the bar and restaurant are most helpful and pleasant, reception less so. Sadly after knowing this hotel and using it for more than 20 years, I fell I cannot stay again. No car arrived at the airport to collect me despite this being on offer.
