On Saturday afternoon August 2nd, 2015, hotel owners, press and others were at the Ministry of Culture and Tourism (MoCT) behind the National theater in Addis Ababa for the official hotel rating announcements.
The Capital Hotel management and staff have taken heart due to this illustrious recognition and plan to achieve the still greater 5 star Grand Luxe ranking in the years to come. As it is, the 5 star distinction is a first of a kind for an indigenous hotel brand.
"Becoming the first ever Ethiopian born hotel brand to receive this 5 star award is a huge achievement for us. I am also certain that this will have positive ramifications for the entire hotel industry as well as tourism as a whole."
