Kiboko Town Hotel is a very comfortable place to stay in the old town of Lilongwe. We were close to car hire, shops and banks so it made everything easier. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed the ease of settling in and having a drink in their bar.

It felt very safe and I had a sound night's sleep. It was good to have a television and catch up on the latest news. The eggs for breakfast in the sunny courtyard were done to perfection.

Don't be put off when you arrive. It is an oasis in the dessert and the breakfast and lunch can be recommended. Do beware of the people outside the entrance. Also, at night they tried to sell bottled water that had be opened and refilled. Check the seal. If you want a bland international hotel go elsewhere.

Stayed here a couple of times this month and the rooms were fine, enough hot water, candle for the power outages. Helpful reception and staff exceptionally honest and trustworthy. By a foolish error I left $500 in the opened roomsafe and they contacted me and got it to me within a few days. The place feels safe and they serve a decent breakfast. Underneath the hotel is a good, friendly Bistro, Incidentally, AXA buses now leave from The Crossroads, specifically the far side of the carpark in the City Shopping Mall there (National from behind the nearby petrol station). The AXA office was unmarked and on the left down the corridor of the Mall's left-hand entrance - toilets further down. The old AXA office near the Kiboko has closed. Crossroads is within walking distance if you are fit and do not have a lot of baggage - out of the KITH, left, right at garage/tyre place, left along main road and keep going to the crossroads roundabout

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at the back

We stayed one night on the way south and one on the way back. The executive room was great but had no hot water, while the deluxe on the way back was small and clean and had heaps. We watched Joyce Banda at her old school on the TV and loved the fact that she really wants to improve the lot of women and children in Malawi. A good breakfast in the garden and definitely to be recommended as a place to stay in old Lilongwe!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road if you want an uninterrupted night's sleep!

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel. I honestly can say that I was unsure of the hotel when I arrived and when I viewed it online. I don't think the photos or the facade does this place justice. It is very clean, beds are comfortable and lobby and restaurant are tastefully decorated. I felt very safe as well which can be a concern in Lilongwe for Americans. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with a modest budget or to anyone who wants a very clean and safe place. I stayed at another hotel just around the corner--forgot the name--that was more expensive and considered high-end. It had a flat screen TV and hightened security. I honestly can say that I prefer Kiboko over this other place. There is also limited parking available if you have a car.
