Sheraton Addis Addis Ababa Reviews
Sheraton Addis Mar 15, 2011
The Sheraton Addis is a 5 star hotel (probably a 4 star back in the states) with nightly rates ranging anywhere from 200USD to 600USD. But, that said, you can probably get better rates if you do some research and book online.
We stayed here in 2008 for around 100USD and it was well worth it as far as security goes. Some of the others in our group stayed at a 4 star hotel for cheaper rates but they were approached by shady characters soliciting prostitution more than once on their hotel property. The Sheraton has much better security and we had none of those problems. Everyone coming onto the property must go through the front gates and metal detectors, and you need your room card to enter elevators.
We were upgraded to a corporate rate because of our status with UNICEF. The room had a nice wide screen tv and a work desk. There wasn't much to watch on the tv in English, though. They had wireless internet, but it was like 20USD per day. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean, and the shower/bathroom was great, complete with bidet and all the toiletries you would need. Housekeeping was always accommodating whenever we needed something, but you need to tip them if you expect good service.
The hotel complex has a pool, fitness center, and a few selections of shops/ restaurants: a jewelery store, luxury candy shop, local travel ageny, and a souvenir shop (they were all overpriced). There is a bank machine in the lobby if you need cash from your c.c. There are two restaurants that I know of...an Indian restaurant and an Italian restaurant. We only had breakfast at the hotel's main restaurant and it wasn't that great. They also have a bar/lounge. The front desk staff wasn't all that friendly or helpful but it seemed they were extremely busy all the time. Outside of the Sheraton property, it's a completely different world. Children are begging on the street as soon as you leave the hotel property.
