Food was perfect except that the menu is for the whole day, that is the same thing is served during lunch and dinner.The location of the place is good for convenience as well. The rooms are amazing, very clean and everything is provided in the rooms.The security is ok as well and the employees are friendly especially Benjamin Moilwe.

Actually a nice set up. Have some patience while check in process and enjoy the pool bar while u wait for the room keys;-). The rooms are clean, though pretty small. Bathrooms would require some renovations. But overall a nice surprise. I'll come back !

The hotel is well appointed. It's clean and the staff are most friendly and helpful. I had an issue with no hot water and a broken shower door on the first morning of my stay. The hotel resolved both matters during the day. Not only did I arrive to a room where all matters had been resolved, I also received...

I am a regular business visitor to Gaborone and have always had exceptional service from the team at the Avani. Other than slow internet, which is a standard across Africa, I cannot complain about the Avani, I only have good things to say!

This is a 4-Star hotel and considered one of the best in the area. I was somewhat disappointed with the rooms however. We booked for single beds but they're pushed together to make a kingsize bed. Our room was changed and it was the same thing. All of their rooms are that way. While the bathroom was adequate, the half-round...

The receptionist was very professional and helpful. The food at the bar was way better than the Mahogany restaurant, but the double burger and club sandwich is a rip off.

It is a good hotel though here and there they need to improve. Overall I enjoyed the stay and am not ashamed to recommend it to someone else. Management there is good. My only worry was on service of food during lunch time which I feel should improve given the serious delays my group faced.
