The Radisson Blu Hotel in Addis Ababa is ideally located in the city's iconic Kazanchis Business District, within a 500-meter radius of the National Palace, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the United Nations Compound, and a number of government offices. Nearby, you will find popular attractions including the National Museum and Holy Trinity Cathedral. In addition, the hotel is just 6 kilometers away from Bole International Airport.
It is increasingly common that the streets in Addis Ababa have names, but many of them still do not, so the best way to navigate the city is by using the landmarks. Getting around is easy with the light rail transportation system, which opened in 2015. There are two lines, one going east-west and one north-south. The trains operate frequently: 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. Tickets are inexpensive and can be bought at orange-colored kiosks near the stations. You can also hail a white minibus alongside the road or find a yellow or green taxi outside the hotel.
