Harare, Zimbabwe
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

You are likely to enjoy the African cuisine offered at The Usual Place bar. Business class patronage and upmarket bar makes this one of Harare's coolest place for a relaxed meeting venue to discuss official matters.

The furniture is OLD. the building is OLD. Its in desperate need of a revamp and some new carpets. You feel like you've stepped into the early...

Visited Harare and stayed at Cresta Jameson Hotel. I enjoyed my stay, the place is still neat, though some things need improvement. The Hotel no longer offers supper and lunch. WiFi speed has improved, and public transport no longer loads near the hotel. Television sets in the rooms are now old, need to install new ones.

Single night stay was better than expected. Quiet, clean and spacious room. Good bathroom - everything I needed was there. Only deficiency is poor quality of TV reception and very limited choice of DStv channels - no CNN nor BBC News of course! Location is great! Smack in the center of the city. I needed to get to Canadian Embassy...

The hotel is conveniently located in the CBD and offering decent affordable accommodation. The restaurant was closed for renovations when I stayed there and was a bit of inconvenience when using public taxi service to move around. I hope the ongoing renovations would be for the rest of the hotel. The staff were very helpful, I easily changed my room...

We stayed there overnight it was a comfortable stay, on arrival we were assisted with the luggage to the lobby. The room was clean up to standard nothing spectacular, the bed was comfortable.the shower was good with plenty of hot water.You can tell that the hotel has seen better days , but for budget accommodation it's not too bad.
