The Capital hotel is in a great area. The staff is pleasant but not terribly efficient. The property itself is a bit worn and dated but relatively clean. After all, this is Malawi and even though the country and its people are lovely, I didn't expect much.
However, my initial room smelled. Like a cross between old shoes and fried fish. I couldn't stay in the room, so I asked to see others. I sniffed my way through 3 more rooms until I found one that could be tolerated. Turns out the hotel is in the middle of getting an update. If you need to stay at this hotel, be sure to ask for a newly refurbished room to avoid the same problem.
