New Five-Star Hotel Joins Hospitality Industry


A new five-star hotel is set to join the hospitality industry in Ethiopia, with the inauguration of Elilly International Hotel on Sunday, November 24, 2013. Located in the Kazanchis area of Kirkos District, which is currently under redevelopment, the new hotel sits in what is increasingly becoming a hotspot for upscale hotels. It now boasts the Jupiter International, Radisson Blu, InterContinental Addis and Hilton hotels, all within walking distance of their newest neighbour.

The hotel, which was designed and built by sister company Gemshu Beyene Construction Plc (GEBECON), cost more than 700 million Br, according to Daniel Abebe, marketing director of the hotel.

Including its penthouse and two presidential suites, the hotel, with 250 staff members, boasts 154 rooms. Prices vary from 250 dollars for a single room to 500 dollars for the presidential suites; the penthouse rate is yet to be determined.

In addition to a swimming pool, spa, gymnasium, night club and a fine dining restaurant, as well as more than six conference rooms of varying sizes, the hotel will also feature an Oromia International Bank branch, a laundry shop and a travel agency.

Parking issues are the only possible glitch, according to Daniel, who stated that this is only a temporary concern.

“When we complete the construction of the 12-storey extension of our hotel, we will have five floors worth of parking space,” he said. “Though we will mainly use it for our guests, we will also let visitors to the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) use it.”

Construction of the extension, which is right in front of the current structure, is set to begin in seven months, though the completion timeframe is unknown at this time.
