Louisa Verney (Staff)

Radisson Blu is a great new city hotel. The staff were fantastic, the rooms very comfortable with the amenities which you would expect in a good city business hotel. It was perfectly located in the centre of the city so it was easy to visit all the city's attractions including The ethnographic museum, home to a copy of Lucy's skeleton, Trinity Cathedral, where the tomb of the Ethiopian legend, Haile Selassie and his wife lie, and also St Georges Cathedral which was founded in 1896 to commemorate victory over Italy in the battle of Adwa.
