The Reception area is unfortunately the only area nearly up to standard. The room is old and run down. The door frame was bent open at the lock, a lot of maintenance needed and furniture generally chipped and old. The aircon sounds like a generator.
Breakfast was not much better - the only items really nice were the filter coffee and fresh fruit. The buffet was cold and the utensils unsightly and dishes not opened up although already past opening time when I arrived.
Location in CBD not ideal as no good restaurants around and you look out onto street vendors.
The lift was not serviced and was due on the day of my arrival.

Dear Lize S.

Thank you for staying at Cresta President.

We would like to advise that the hotel planned refurbishment will be carried out soon to restore Cresta President as the preferred hotel in the CBD.

We trust that you will notice a marked difference in the coming months.


Kind regards

lighting in the bathroom poorly light

noise from the square early morning. hotel poorly situated for meetings and travel around Gaborone is hectic during the day, parking at the hotel is also very poor as it seems there is only a public car parking facility there .

Room Tip: unable to shave on bathroom as lighting was very poor

The staff are extremely helpful and nice, especially our waitress Angel. Everything worked well and all our needs were addressed, and extra help provided in organising tours we were interested in. The room was cosy and cute and very clean, and literally the only bad thing in the entire hotel was that we found bed bugs behind the bed. Thankfully they were dead and no live ones appeared so we didn't make a fuss. We will definitely go back if we ever go back to Gaborone, this was a very short trip.

Room Tip: Fifth room had a nice view over sunset!

The location of the hotel Kant really your ideal tourist destination but it is ideal for business as it is accessible and close to many other businesses. The hotel management has made every effort to ensure the hotel looks and feels comfortable. Loved the fact that there was uninterrupted Wi-Fi access - I could connect with family back home all the time and I could also access work emails. Cresta President Hotel ka good for business.
