    The staff are wonderful! A great place to spend the day, even if you're not spending the night. I recommend the spa (very affordable and enjoyable)! The gym is large and has similar amount of equipment you would find in a regular North American gym.

    An aspiring international standard in the heart of Addis Ababa with adequate facilities and staff who try their best. The potential is great if the standard is maintained and further developed. Left the hotel well rested and refreshed.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The staff is amazing. Words are not enough to describe how they were genuinely caring and attentive. I have to do a shout out to 2 staff members that come to mind: "Meraf" at the reception desk and "Baitru "at the concierge desk were excellent. The gym provides all my needs for a daily cardio workout. Ahh the spa is another gem. I enjoyed the Moroccan bath. What makes Capital hotel attractive is it's all on in one approach. I will be back for sure. Cheers
