Rainbow Hotel Victoria Falls
Ranked #15 of 16 Hotels in Victoria Falls
Reviewed 12 June 2017 via mobile

Nicely landscaped. Clean rooms. Speedy room service. Sprawling verandas and sit-outs. Tours and activity desk gives up to ten percent discount. A bit far from the Falls. Taxi to and fro Falls cost us $10 and one way to Airport is $30.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with family

We had a really nice time this place. Was the end of our safari so felt like luxe accomodations. The staff was so friendly. The entertainment at night fun. The rooms were clean and roomy. The grounds are beautiful.

This hotel is barely average. The staff is friendly and personable, the beds were comfortable and the showers were hot, but otherwise, it was just OK. The place felt like it used to be a nice hotel maybe 50 years ago, but obvious renovations haven't given it any charm or improved the hotel experience. There are dangerous changes in floor level as you walk down corridors, and risk falling or tripping. No hairdryer unless you requested one and signed away your first born. There is a safe for valuables, but the doors don't self close. After our laundry was returned to us, someone stole clean clothing out of our room - Who has to lock up travel clothing in one's room???? I would resist staying here again and opt for something closer to town and a little less tired looking and feeling.
