First of all the property is stunning. The drinks are good and the restaurant and bar staff are excellent. Now, this may sound whiny, but as much as we pay to stay here, we have certain expectations. First, I dont mind being in the last corner room at the end of the hallway on the ground floor...but CLEAN THE ROOM!!... More

I had high hopes going into my four-night stay at the Sheraton Addis, having heard from friends it was the nicest hotel in the Horn. Boy were they off! As many reviewers below have noted, the hotel is extremely expensive--charging for every single amenity that most hotels offer for free. No coffee or tea in the room; no iron (you... More

At 485 US$ per night one expects a few complimentary luxuries such as a coffee/tea station in one's room. One do not expect to pay 6US$ per coffee/tea. Most other 3,4 and 5 star hotels in Addis offer free wifi or free internet access. The Sheraton charges a whopping 7US$ per hour for a very slow connection. The limited selection... More

Nice hotel in Addis. Reception was very good and check in friendly. The room was tasteful although the view was not great. However cant complain as I was leaving very early in the morning. Internet is being charged, so did not use it. Eggs for breakfast took a bit of time in preparation but I had to leave early so... More

The Sheraton Addis Ababa is a great place to be in Africa. When arriving and passing by the poor and run down city of Addis, nobody would even think that behind the 10ft high fence is a truely amazing deluxe hotel. One only has a bad conscience when looking at the huts behind the premises. The rooms are in superb... More

If you have to stay at a hotel in Addis, I highly recommend the Sheraton. The bed is very comfortable and the rooms are quiet. I slept very well. If you're in an Executive Room, they don't charge for internet access - otherwise its $7/hour or $17/24 hours. Use of the Executive Lounge (which includes a so-so breakfast) is only... More

It is such a surprise when you find something which is way beyond your expectations. The Sheraton Addis is one of those such things. I have stayed in this hotel many many times. Most of the staff are helpful and all are courteous. A couple of great bars ( i love Stanleys! ) and the food is OK but i... More

Excellent service. Clean rooms, prompt attention from management should something go wrong. We have stayed at the Sheraton numerous times and the service is always good the staff helpful and it is an oasis in the midst of what can often be a chaotic city to visit. Good perks for those who are Starwood Preferred Guests.

My friend and I stayed at the Sheraton for a few nights in Addis. We had gone around hiking in the north of Ethiopia and welcomed a bit of treat on our way back to Addis. The Sheraton is a beautiful hotel with all amenities, nice restaurants and overall good value for money. Staff are overall nice in the traditional... More

What a fantastic hotel. I enjoyed a week (not cosecutive) at the hotel, the staff was professional and courteous, the food in the restaurants were delicious (their breakfast was excellent with a huge selection). The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable with nice toiletries. Overall, it is a fantastic place to stay. Did I mention the fantastic pool, it is... More
