I spent two nights at Rainbow Hotel with a business colleague.
In general it was a good hotel with big and clean rooms. Bathroom did not look too 'modern' but it was tidy and clean. Staff was extremely friendly and competent.
Good restaurant offering a good buffet. Though, because the restaurant was nearby the bar, it was noisy because of the bar crowd and the drunk customers passing by.
Although internet connection was supposed to be provided through (ridiculously expensive) vouchers exclusively in an area close to the reception (no wireless or other connections in the rooms), for two days it was impossible for us to get connected.
Furthermore, it was impossible for us to make phone calls abroad.
In general, it is in line with all the other hotel of the same category that a traveller might visit in many African countries. Like most of the commodities in Zimbabwe, the hotel was overpriced and in another neighbouring country, we would have easily paid half of what we paid in Zim for that type of accommodation.
