I could not resist taking lots of pictures of the Africa House. The hotel is a marvelous haven. Not only well designed, spacious, calm with lots of niches where one can find privacy and peace, but with all the amenities of a REAL 5 star hotel, not the glitzy ones of today, but those of the Mr Getty's of yester...

I stay at Africa house for a few weeks every couple of months while I am in Lilongwe for work. The place is spacious and well-kept. The staff are very friendly and always welcome me back. The location (Area 43) required a car (or taxi) to get around, but it is also great for a walk or run. Africa House...

Angela, Edvai and the wonderful staff make this place shine. I have stayed at Africa House both for long-term and short-term stays, and the ambiance, decor, and warmth of the staff really set this place apart from others in Lilongwe. This is my first choice in guesthouses!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Africa House Malawi is a stylish contemporary lodge, created from a unique blend of African designs, furniture, fabrics and our personal collectables. The lodge has a varied collection of rooms, all en suite, and a restaurant for residents to dine in. Each room is named after an African country or culture and decorated in that particular style. During many years of experience and travel in Africa we have collected traditional arts and crafts; this collection shows how traditional cultures make use of locally available materials. Whether the material used is wood, stone, beads, paint, metal, fabric or leather, African people continue to make powerful statements about their cultures and create an extraordinary and rich heritage of artistic expression.This and working in the tourism and hospitality industry for more than 15 years, makes Africa House Malawi a true destination with a difference. ... more   less
