A fine hotel, though you would never know you were in Africa (if that is what you like). The air conditioning and service are both a bit spotty, but the superb buffet breakfast more than makes up for it. A good location for visiting the National Museum and an easy taxi ride from most everything else in Addis. probably worth... More

Just returned from a 1 night stay. I dod not have long at the hotel, but the little I experienced was good. First, the hotel has a stand at the Airport with a free shuttle bus to the hotel. Whilst waiting I was offered some cold bottled water and sat in a small but pleasant seating area. Hotel is 15... More

A lot of hotels around the world believe they are 5 star. The Sheraton Addis was an amazing surprise, the atmosphere; service and luxury are far ahead of the pack. From the moment you walk into the lobby it’s completely a different world. The most impressive for me was the attitude of the staff, always a beautiful smile and only... More

The Sheraton is a dependable, predictable place to stay typical of African big city 5 star hotels. The environment is very nice, though a bit sterile for my likes. I found all the restaurants to have very slow service, mediocre food, and very high prices. There are many culinary alternatives in the city, although none really within walking distance of... More

Sheraton Addis is from another world in good and bad. It's completely different from any other hotel in Addis. The rooms are superb as well as the public areas. Breakfast is good though it’s possible to get stomach problems from Sheraton as well. I’ve stayed here for three weeks all together. A very very big minus from lack of a... More

The monopolistic atitude of the Sheraton despite the emergence of many other hotels inAddis was due to its service and location. Now the location remains They are raising their rates to high limits and have also converted their room service menu to USD pricing.their billing will often include unused mini bar charges and if you dont check will end with...

This is the finest hotel in all of Addis Ababa, and would certainly rate as a top 100 hotel on the planet. Really nice and well kept, high class hotel. I have stayed here on many occassions and for the price, it is hard to beat. The location is not the best as you will need a taxi to get... More

The Sheraton Addis is visually stunning both inside and outside and lives up to the quality that one would expect from a Sheraton Hotel. This hotel is strangely incongruous for Ethiopia and even for Addis which is wholly different to the rest of Ethiopia. The rich and famous are to be seen in abundance. Life is very different outside. Reasonably... More

Sheraton Addis Ababa is a five-star hotel about which one can complain only in trivial ways, such as wondering why bottled water is not free with dinner since the tap water is not potable. For swimmers it is a necessity since the one indoor pool in Addis is so crowded as to be unswimmable, the pool at the Hilton is... More
