Area & Activities

Welcome to the African Capital

Often called the “African capital” for its historical, diplomatic and political role in the continent, Addis Ababa lies at the foot of Mount Entoto and rises over 3,000 meters (9,800 ft) in the mountains to the north.

Situated on a hilltop overlooking the city, the Sheraton Addis stands opposite the National Palace, formerly known as the Jubilee Palace, built to mark Emperor Haile Selassie's Silver Jubilee in 1955. About 7 km (11 miles) away from Bole International Airport, the hotel’s central location provides easy access to the city’s commercial districts, the UNECA Headquarters, the United Nations Conference Center, the AU Headquarters, as well as to most business establishments and NGOs. Many of Ethiopia’s most renowned attractions are within easy reach. Our concierge desk will gladly arrange excursions to the ancient capital of Axum, the fabled rock churches of Lalibela, the Filwoha thermal baths, or the Merkato, one of the largest open-air markets in Africa.

For golf aficionados, nine-hole and six-hole courses are located within a short drive of the hotel.

Electric supply: Ethiopia uses 220 volts 50 cycles AC. Currency: The local currency is the Ethiopian Birr (ETB), made up of 100 cents (1 Birr). Birr notes are available in denominations of 1, 5,10,50, and 100.
