The Sheraton Addis is a large, luxurious hotel set in the centre of Addis Ababa. Owned and built by a Saudi shiek, it's all that you would expect it to be - thourougly enjoyed our say and would go again. The highlight was hiring Barack to guide us around the city - he was awesome, safe, and very reasonably priced. Details below:
Very clean, well appointed with super comfortable bed. The bathrooms are great with separate shower and bath, in room safe, wi-fi access throughout the entire hotel and a neat little cordless phone system to remain in touch when you are out of the room. All rooms have balconies with great views of the city,
The pool is great with a 35m pool for swimming laps if you like and it's maintained at 30 degrees so nice and warm at all times. Bar service is prompt and professional and prices are same as North America. Spa facilites are very good, and cost less than North America. Reataurants area ll very good, especially the Indian One.
Service was very good as you would expect. Once the hotel learned it was my wife's birthday they delivered a cake that would feed at least 15 people which was a nice touch.
Do yourself a favour and arrange a tour of the city with drive through the hotel. We hired Barack for the day and he was absolutely amazing. Worked out to be about $14/hr for is time and car and he was fantastic. He took us to all the sites in a nice car and treated us to drinks to celebrate my wife's birthday. Definitely a highligh of our stay.
Overall, great stay at a price I would expect to pay in North America. Would go again.
