This is probably not the best hotel in Victoria Falls,but it probably has more atmosphere and character than the major resort hotels . We were very happy with our stay at Llala Lodge which came as part of a tour package . You get a very warm reception with a cool towel and drink.All the staff were very friendly and helpful always with a smile . As mentioned by many others the location is perfect,an easy walk to Vic Falls and to town.There is a great outdoor patio bar and restaurant where you can see the mist from the falls and we watched an elephant stroll down the road at sunset.The rooms are basic and a bit dated,ours on the ground floor was very clean and comfortable for the little time we spent in it.The hotel has a tour desk that can book anything you may want to do in the area,we opted for the helicopter tour over the falls.For us breakfast was fine with a continental buffet and a choice of a hot entree from a menu.We thought the prices for the dinner menu were a bit pricey,although the drink prices at the bar were very reasonable.The Kingdom Resort across the street has a choice of restaurants and a nice dinner buffet with entertainment.The one computer in the lobby worked fine for internet access,a bit slow sometimes not a problem.We were a bit uncomfortable walking in town as some of the men in the street can be very aggressive in trying to sell you everything and anything . Easy to understand in an area with 80% unemployment,the tourist police are great and willing to take you anywhere.The hotel has a small pool and jacuzzi to just relax and enjoy Africa. If you want a resort hotel this is not the place for you,if you want a small hotel with plenty of character and charm you won't go wrong with Llala Lodge .
