I have been fortunate to stay here a number of times. The hotel retains all of its old world charm and style but has upgraded the bedrooms from my last stay to a very good standard. I felt the main restaurant was starting to show it's age a little as was the pool area but otherwise things were first class... More

Stayed for 1o days on business and had a lovely stay overall. The rooms are nice and kept very clean and it wasn't a problem that I wasn't in the newly refurbished wing. Beds are very comfy and the hotel staff are very welcoming. Kudos to the guys at the concierge who many times had more info at hand than... More

Hello Kampala. Not many people stay as long as 10 days with us on business trips that are 80% a quick in-and-out of Harare. Therefore your vote as being a "lovely stay" is meaningful and appreciated. Your concerns have been noted and actions have been taken. Our new set of individually-controlled air conditioners for the entire South Wing are due... More

Stayed there for a biz trip. And enjoyed pretty much everything from location (walking distance for all major biz locations in city center) to service. Hint: use lounge on 11th floor for breakfast, same price, but the whole different quality and view (and staff there will make your day too). The only complain is Internet access routine, but I didn't... More

I have stayed at this property several times and this visit saw me in the newly renovated wing. I have to say considerable improvement is noted over the last ten years or so.

Very nice hotel. I stayed for 7 nights in the more recently renovated North Wing. Nice views of Africa Unity Square from my room. Food in La Fontaine was good, if not a little repetitive. Eunice, one of the chefs at breakfast was a bright spot to each morning's breakfast service. One piece of advice/feedback: if you book an excursion... More
