I stayed here after arriving in Vic Falls on a tour and needed a hotel with always-on, en suite, high-speed WiFi for a few days - the Rainbow fit the bill. The Hotel is a bit passed its prime in its aesthetics and is ready for a makeover; nonetheless, it was a pleasant place to stay for a few days. However, be warned the Vic Falls prices are excessive (for all establishments) for accommodation and food. What would be a $80/night hotel in the USA costs $140/night here. I would advise to settle your bill the night before departing - there is a very good chance the credit card machine will not function at check out time.
