Wabe Shebelle Hotel

The Wabe Shebelle Hotel was built in 1968 by HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I who then gifted it to his five grandsons, children of HIM’s late son Prince Makonnen (1924-1957). The hotel is a historic landmark, it was one of two major 4-star hotels in its time alongside the Hilton, but was the tallest building in the city with 11 floors. It includes 110 guest rooms, including executive suites, 3 restaurants (2 indoor, 1 outdoor), 2 bars, and a ballroom which can host over 700 people.  


Located in downtown Addis Ababa in the busy Mexico square intersection and just minutes from the African Union, the Wabe Shebelle is a prime location in the center of the up-and-coming financial district. 


The hotel was nationalized after the military coup of 1974, but was then returned to the Royal Family in 2011 by the Ethiopian Government. The grandsons of HIM Haile Selassie now own and operate the hotel.
