“Super friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Very low price (for Harere) and I am told that the company is in the process of improvements. The staff do their utmost to make you welcome and really do care. Security was very good, no problems leaving stuff in the room.
The other review mentioned scruffy, I guess that is true of the bath tubs - paint cracking on the surfaces and some towel rails broken. But the place is really clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was great with a big range of choice, including full English. And I found that if you pack it in you don't need any lunch, so justifying the price.
Location is good for the shops and some bars etc, and as it's next to the Zim Ministry of Defence and backs onto the goverment buildings, security in the area is fine.
I would go again certainly. My context is as a person who doesn't use a lot of hotels and really don't care - need a fridge - mini-bar and super posh facilities. I like simple clean and friendly.

Room Tip: Wifi in higher floors not as good. No pool or fitness room

I stayed at this hotel because it was cheap, I have stayed at all the hotels in the past 10 years in Harare and this is one of the cheapest and it shows it when you stay there, it is in the city centre should you want to go there but there is not much to see, there are more modern shopping area's in and around Harare much better equiped
