The Ras Hotel: A legendary part of the charm and fabric of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Did you know that Nelson Mandela slept here? That's right - as a fugitive from apartheid, South Africa's former leader spent time in Addis Ababa, where he received advice and assistance from Emperor Hailie Sellassie of Ethiopia. That much needed help contributed to his later success. Wartime hero Marshall Tito of Yugoslavia was also a guest at the Ras Hotel during this critical period. Keeping with the tradition of famous names and places, the Ras Hotel is located on Churchill Road, just ten minutes from newly upgraded Bole International Airport - and within walking distance of the railway station, with connections to Dire Dawa and the port of Djibouti.
