Stayed here on business for five nights, and it was exactly what I needed. I was a bit apprehensive about going to Harare, having heard stories of power failures and shortages, but this was certainly not a problem. It is an old building and hotel, but everything seemed to work fine - plumbing, electricity, elevators, aircon, kitchens, and so on.
However, the staff were really amazing and incredibly helpful. There was not one occasion when somebody didn't rush up to me to help me with a bag or something. I was warmly greeted everywhere I went, and asked how is my stay. While waiting fro my driver in the mornings, the young Guest Relations lady, Joyce, always struck upo a friendly conversation and made me feel at home. One day, a smart man in a suit walked up to me an introduced himself as "Ivan." He again asked me about my stay, if I was happy with wireless internet, and so on. Then he gave me his card and I saw he was the General Manager. How often do you see the GM of most hotels oif this size out and about, mingling with guests and staff?
Breakfast and dinner? Well, my only answer is that I put on 2 kg in six days. Oh, and the views from my room on the 11th floor were just fantastic.
In all, a great hotel, which can probably do with a fresh lick of paint, but this doesn't become noticable because the staff are just wonderful.
