We spent a delightful week at the Sheraton Addis. The room was well appointed (this is of course a five star hotel!) and the service an staff wonderfully friendly and efficient. Great in-house restaurants, a beautiful and warm swimming pool, great security! Other guests during our stay were Hillary Clinton and her party (she was there to address the African... More

On three three separate occasions I heard frantic guests talking to security in the lobby because their belongings had been stolen from their room. I overheard one Asian gentleman clain that henhad a significant amount of cash taken. The rooms each have a safe so I do suggest you use them. That being said, the hotel is certainly plush and...

Way too much to stay here. It is very nice yes and the best in town but that is not saying much. The problem they have is no competition......Beware Sheraton if you do then you need to pull up your socks and drop your prices. And stop this paying for internet thing, i already paid enough............ Good hotel for sure... More

This is THE BEST hotel in Addis Ababa and hence very expensive. But the place is beautiful, location is superb and food is simply awesome. The staff is alright. They do not appear to be the staff of a five-star hotel as they can be very curt and stiff sometimes but some of them are very accomodating and good-natured. And... More

Sheraton Addis is an incredible hotel. The view of the hotel as you are coming down the hill from the airport is magnificent. The public areas are grand, including the pool and the fountains. I was here last time about 4 years ago. The hotel seems to have similar level of service, but the rooms are showing some age. The... More

Yes, I am sure this is the best hotel in Ethiopia but that is not saying much. The trouble is that it is phenomenally expensive, way beyond anything a local person could ever afford, and given what they must be paying for goods and services locally, it is very hard to justify. They have a total pay as you go... More

This morning my wife and I paid $23 to have a swim at the Sheraton in Addis (our first visit to their pool). My wife had to attend a meeting after the swim and planned to get ready at the hotel. On trying to have a shower (as one does) after the swim we were directed to the outside shower... More

Our flight was late-night so we carefully arranged a hotel pick-up. Had written confirmation. We waited an hour. No one showed up. Long, frustrating story here, but I'll be brief- we finally got to the hotel. Exhausted by now, we were told that the room type we booked (two beds) no longer existed. Traveling with my son (for my 60th... More

I think there only three things to complain about here. The smoke in the lobby (happens everywhere ouside the US), the price, and maybe the fact its not near a grand beach on some luxurious island. Otherwise, great place to stay!!! The room is the nicest I have ever been in with features I wish I had at home (remote... More
