Description

Described by the hotel itself as a "sanctuary of Ethiopian grandeur", The Sheraton Addis is a hotel of international standard and therefore atypical to the decor and amenities on offer outside the capital, the perfect place to transition into Ethiopian life.

There are 293 guest rooms and suites to choose from at The Sheraton Addis and during your stay there is much to keep you occupied from the facilities within the hotel itself including a swimming pool with underwater music, to the museums, nightlife of the city and nearby Merkato (market). The hotel is popular with both tourists and those on business, with facilities for conferences but also relaxation and leisure. The concierge at the hotel will assist you with any plans or transportation needs to make your stay as convenient and enjoyable at possible. We recommend a room above ground floor but not above the bars for a more peaceful stay.

There is a choice of 11 different areas within the hotel to relax and enjoy a wide variety of cuisines and beverages, ranging from Italian to Indian. The grounds are manicured, large and very secure, the perfect location to relax in as the sun goes down after a busy day sight-seeing and shopping in the city.

Location & Directions

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The Sheraton Addis Ababa is 7km from Bole International Airport and located in the center of the capital close to the United Nations Conference Center and the city's markets, museums and churches.

When to go

The best time to visit Ethiopia is from mid to late October until May. During this time the highlands are ideal for hiking especially after the rainy season has just finished as the landscape bursts into life.

Due to the high altitude of the country in comparison to its location conditions get quite cool at night. Temperatures generally can reach above 30°C in lowland areas, whereas the highland temperature can dip below 20°C. Addis Ababa has a relatively even temperature year-round.
