1 min read

South African- based hotel management company; BON Hotels have extended their Ethiopian presence by adding BON Hotel German Square in Addis Ababa to their East African collection, making it their third property in the capital.

Construction of the hotel commenced three years ago and BON Hotels will work closely with the development team and architects, providing technical assistance from an interior architectural perspective with specific guidance in hotel design and planning. The 115-room hotel will include two restaurants, three conference rooms with a capacity to host 400 delegates, a swimming pool, bars and sufficient parking and is expected to be completed in early 2020. The hotel will create direct employment for over 200 local staff and, according to Guy Stehlik, CEO of BON Hotels, will answer the need for very good quality, reasonably priced hotel accommodation in Addis Ababa.

Stehlik notes: “Addis Ababa is certainly gaining a good reputation from the conference and events tourism sector and hotel brands are paying attention. We are very excited to see our third hotel underway and with our presence on the ground in Ethiopia, we continue to honour our pledge of developing Africa by Africans.”

BON Hotels is actively seeking opportunities for new builds & rebrands throughout East Africa particularly Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.
