I arrived at 11pm and a taxi was waiting for me which was organised by the hotel. $15pp one way. It only took about 15mins to get to the hotel at that time of the evening. The staff were friendly and check in went smoothly. The shower was hot and the bed comfy. The door and windows didn't feel very...

This is a very reasonably priced hotel ($50 in August, 2016) located in downtown Harare. I only stayed for one night but found everything to be fine. Upon check-in and check-out the staff was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and as expected. There was hot water in the shower. The water ran out in the morning but this...

My luggage was misplaced and I ended up spending much of my time calling Harare airport, and SA Airways in South Africa. At $1 a minute, I dreaded getting my bill but they chose not to bill me because of the circumstances of my luggage. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful, fully airconditioned and free...

It was an amazing one; the hotel is conveniently located in the great CBD of Harare with splendid view of the town. The room service was exceptionally good, complemented with the welcoming stuff. Frankly speaking, I had a good time at Cresta Jameson. It is a cosy place to be...so see you there for either business, family or couple trip/visit.

Went with family for a night. The service was good. It was not noisy and I had value for money. The customer service was fantastic especially the guy on the reception. No noise from cbd. It is a good place to visit when u are visiting Harare.

The staff and waiters here never disappoint." Refreshing" theme adopted by the corporate has brought sense of ownership and valued participation from staff. Inevitably customer care has gone up and clientele excited. Informal meetings are better in "The Usual Place" restaurant.

CBD location ideal because I had early morning meetings to attend to. I expected the Samora Machel AM and PM peak traffic to be obtrusive but I was pleasantly surprised. No real complaints against the facilities, not luxurious but great at this price point. I will definitely stay there again. I made one call to housekeeping which was promptly and...

Average rated. Nothing spectacular. Clean linen (though found rubbish in closet from previous stay which was taken care of upon reporting to front desk). Disappointed there was no dinner service as restaurant was under renovations but had made prior booking elsewhere. Hot water and an otherwise comfortable stay.

the place is well situated, in the CBD. Though there has been a slight deterioration in the outlook ,its still a good place to be. its cool and quiet, very conducive for learning or just resting. There is good air condition.
