The Grand Palace Hotel (TGP) is proud to announce being awarded the “Best New Hotel in Ethiopia 2021” and the “Best Architectural Design in Ethiopia” by the coveted International Travel Awards.
The award is organized to highlight outstanding achievers in the hotel industry across the globe. The Grand Palace has stood out to be the best in two major categories. Having been awarded these prestigious titles under one year of opening and starting operations is a noteworthy milestone and an inspiration to continue delivering the vision and values of the establishment.
The Grand Palace Hotel has set out to elevate the hospitality experience of guests through an enriching and uniquely memorable environment. TGP’s mission is to become the first-choice hotel for leisure and business engagements by creating, catering and celebrating unforgettable moments. As the “Best New Hotel of Ethiopia 2021”, The Grand Palace is known for its exceptional customer experience and remarkable client engagements that go above and beyond to make sure all guests are taken care of. It is also a family-owned hotel, which holds the key to providing exquisite hospitality as taking care of guests comes naturally to the staff.
“I stayed for 6 weeks and it was like home”, says guest Gerd from Germany. “I felt so happy there! The owner-family, the staff, the rooms, the gym, the spa, the food…I can’t wait to return!” Most guests who have stayed at The Grand Palace Hotel often say similar things, having spent a uniquely combined experience of the graceful and comforting staff along with the classy Victorian-inspired atmosphere. The staff also uses feedback to build a strong foundation and continually improve the customer experience.
“With every guest that visits, we make sure to ask about their stay and what we can improve on,” says Elias, Head of Operations. “While this isn’t revolutionary for any hotel, we take constructive criticism very seriously and make sure that any problem gets fixed before the guest returns to make their next experience that much better.”
TGP is a modern, luxury hotel with a spacious lobby providing visible parallels to what a real palace would look like. Head of Strategy, Hanny outlined that, “The hotel embraces the art, history, and culture of British and Ethiopian royalty, which can be seen across the interior, color scheme and design.” As winner of the “Best Architectural Design in Ethiopia” the hotel possesses an element of royalty that projects an extravagant local and historical atmosphere.
“When one enters the lobby, they are met with grand exposed stone arches that were handcrafted to resemble luxurious Ethiopian Tibeb. This is juxtaposed with the lavish and distinctive furniture, which was sourced from talented designers across Europe.”
The golden colors together with the crown logo demand furniture that goes along with the overall aesthetics. The hotel took a great deal of time to have the furniture designed by numerous European Artists.
Beauty and hospitality aside, The Grand Palace Hotel also has plenty of other features that guests love. Located in the diplomatic hub of Ethiopia, TGP is only a minute walk from the United Nations (ECA), and a 10-minute drive from the airport as well as landmarks such as Unity and Friendship park. Once guests arrive, they have unlimited access to a state-of-the art gymnasium, spa and beauty salon. The rooms are spacious and modern with a sizable flat-screen TV and well-stocked minibar and Kitchenette. Large comfortable beds with crisp sheets and a good pillow will be your favorite place to lay your head upon. As The Grand Palace hotel aims to tell a story using its unique designs and offerings, Buna Cultural Hall offers guests a chance to engage and learn about Ethiopian history, culture and cuisine. Guests also have access to 5 meeting halls, an international restaurant, a bar and a rooftop garden.
Whether one is in Addis Ababa for a work matter or even if just a little time away from everyday life, The Grand Palace Hotel is the place for productive engagements and euphoric pastimes.
