The town of lichinga has no middle guest house value...some are so filthy and expensive we had to stay at Girasol. It is more for your business men. We found the hotel clean and food excellent. Service was lacking as the staff are not trained with little English. There were no plugs and water in the toilet after eight in... More

I've stayed in hotels where the bedroom was as big as the bathroom is in this hotel. And the bedroom is quite big as well. The breakfast is good but some days they offer more options than others. The swimming pool is very dirty and I don't advise using it, although the swimming pool are is ok if you want... More

Last time I travel to Lichinga for work was in 2009 and I stay in this hotel. The hotel is well localted, the rooms are big with lots of space and clean. The food is delicious but expensive. The pool was not clean. The service was also not good enough (guests must wait too long on reception for check in/out... More

So the good stuff first. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The description is a little misleading, I didn't see any kitchens, no in room wifi...but wifi only in the lobby (but only 1 plug to be shared by everyone). The food is ok, but as others noted it is really, really, really expensive. A bottle of... More

I went to this hotel as a second choice: I am not a big fan of big hotels, but here it was the second best solution as a place to sleep that I found. Having been also at the Girassol of Nampula, I had the impression this Girassol has something less. Maybe it was newer and not completely finished in... More

In July, after a hectic day's drive from Blantyre, Malawi, and going through the dreaded border posts - actually, they weren't that bad - you just get a tad nervous all for nothing - and also driving along some pretty interesting roads with lots of people, we finally arrived in Lichinga to find it a quiet place and no problem...

Make sure when you go there that you take basin and bath plugs and spare light bulbs. Also be prepared to repair the toilet cistern.

Spacious basic rooms. There is air con and running water, though not always warm. No maintenance of the pool. Staff is friendly, but learning on the job. Probably because of its monopoly situation in Lichinga, this hotel is not really costumer-oriented.
