I walked over to the SUN Hotel last week to meet a friend at one of the restaurants/blue elephant take-away. I decided to check out the property and ended up booking the following night, to also save as I was paying more at Ryalls. Got a discount too. I loved the gardens and well maintained lawns, the wide verandas..to read... More

I like the place, closeness as it is located in the CBD, close to the banks, food courts you can enjoy the sloppy view of Blantyre, the rooms are clean,air conditioned, the food in the hotel is always fresh

The name sounds great but its as like that when you visit. A bit of traditional set up in the rooms. Looks good but falls short of the expectation. Its good for the budget traveller.try it you may like it.

My room had seen better days in the past. The bed net had holes, and the mosquitos were smart enough to find them. The air conditioner dripped water. The tiles in the shower were falling out. Paint was peeling off the walls. The door lock mechanism had clearly been jimmied at some time, and wasn't totally repaired. Water pressure was... More

I have stayed in other older hotels in Malawi, and they have this kind of time travel charm to them. This one has no charm to it whatsoever. It is simply an older very tired hotel where management is not even trying to run it well. Green pool, broken window mechanism in my room, fluctuating water pressure, bad food are... More

Malawi Sun is a great place to stay in Blantyre. It is in the city centre so you can walk to restaurants and the business district. I requested a room away from the construction and was placed in Block 2. I have a nice little balcony to sit outside and enjoy the weather and the view. I can see the... More

In the 4 years that we have guests in Malawi Sun Hotel the service is going backwards. Ask for a special room, you don't get it. You take a shower and you can swim in the bathroom. Maintenance is also going backwards. Breakfast is poor. Time to find something else.
