Two New Hotels Receive Star Ratings

November 2 , 2019

The Ministry of Culture & Tourism, mandated to asses the standards of hotels, gave star ratings to Hyatt Regency and Eliana hotels on October 29,2019. While the former received a five–star rating, the latter received a four-star rating. To be eligible for grading, hotels have to satisfy all statutory regulation, including requirements for health, safety, security, environmental services and waste management. Exterior view, standards of bedrooms, bathrooms, public areas, bars and dining facilities are some of the criteria evaluated to determine hotel ratings. Last August, the Ministry gave four-star ratings to 12 hotels, three-star ratings to 13 hotels, two-star ratings to 31 hotels and one star to 17 hotels across the country. There were 164 star-rated hotels that have a total of 8,000 rooms and 10,000 beds in Addis Abeba as of August 2017.
