I often go to the Office Bar on Thursdays and Fridays and I have enjoyed the vibe over there. With the amazing band, the celebration, i feel like I am in DC. By having my favorite drink, Beer in a big cup, as my friends call it "Jambo" I enjoy my night. If you are there, you will enjoy the... More

I stayed at the Sheraton for almost a week while in Addis for a conference. I agree with other reviewers who felt strange staying in such an isolated luxury compound that is surrounded by such pressing need. I was grateful to stay at a place that offered reasonably reliable services (electricity, Internet, etc.) since I was traveling on business, but... More

The Sheraton is a truly beautiful building, good rooms, truly excellent service, moderate food (very good Indian restaurant, good Italian, poor buffet) but truly terrible coffee. It is a shame that in the world's coffee capital, the coffee served in the main restaurant is truly undrinkable (ask the wait staff, who as Ethiopians know their coffee, and they wouldn't drink...

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in period. Yes, it is pricey but you can be assured of great service, attention to detail, good food, vibey late night jazz at "The Office" and enough space to find a spot to relax and unwind. Coffee is good if you ask for for Ethiopian coffee and the transfers... More

The hotel was outstanding. I travel almost full time and found the Sheraton to be as nice as any hotel I stay. Sitting in the lobby bar or nearly anywhere else, you can mistake this property for a Ritz Carlton. It is a wonderful property with outstanding restaraunts. I enjoyed an Italian meal that was as fine as any top... More

This is really the best hotel I've stayed in Sub Saharan Africa (excluding South Africa). The place is really nice, the service is superb and very efficient. The rooms are great (I have a 50" LCD in my room), and the breakfast was also very good. The only thing I have to complain about is that you pay like $350/night,... More

The minute one enters its spacious lobby one is overwhelmed by the fine decor, mostly with marble and inspired by Ethiopian designs. The service, as is all over Ethiopia, is polite and efficient. The quality of food, considering being in Africa food is good; rooms are large and clean. The large swimming pool is an added bonus. A stay there... More
