With up to scratch infrastructure, this may well have been one of the go-to places for any traveler to Botswana. Every guest is a suspect and is treated as such, it's all money before any respect or service is accorded you. There seems to be no process whatsoever and business ethic is almost non existent. If you may have glitches...

Dear Costa M. Greetings from Cresta President. We are sorry that your stay with us was not a pleasant one. As security of all our guests is of paramount importance we have processes in place that regrettably would appear to be too stringent in some instances. Pre-payment is also expected where guests do not have credit facilities with the hotel....

We booked this place as it was convenient location. We were welcomed friendly with a refreshing cold juice. Poor receptionist however was juggling multiple things at once, telephone constantly ringing and trying to check us in etc. The rooms were neat and tidy. We got ice blocks (tea/coffee station) every day. Only drawback is that the aircon is really loud,...

We stayed for several days in September. This is a very comfortable hotel with excellent, friendly staff. The food, too, is excellent with tasty local dishes. Its central position, overlooking the Main Mall is perfect and sitting on the balcony and watching the bustle of the stalls is a great pleasure - as fans of the No1 Lady Detective will...

I stayed at the Cresta President for two nights during a business trip to Gaborone. I chose this place due to its prime location in Main Mall with close proximity to government agencies. I made the booking even without checking reviews from other travellers as I was reasonable confident with the chain as I have stayed with tem before. Airport...

We travelled from South Africa on the bus for a weekend away and booked in at this hotel. Having been to Botswana a few times I was very impressed with this hotel. It's a 2 minute walk from the bus stop in Queen street so no cab needed , the staff were friendly and helpful on arrival. The room was...

This was the second time I'd stayed (with colleagues) at the Cresta President. It's celebrating its 50th birthday along with Botswana, which is celebrating its 50th year of independence. The hotel is located near government offices in a central part of town (not the new CBD). The area is a bit run down, but the hotel maintains its dignity. Each...

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. Spacious, comfortable room overlooking the mall. WiFi also worked well. Friendly staff throughout the hotel. Nice restaurant with small but comprehensive menu - meals were enjoyable. Parking during the day is a problem due to it also being used by the general public. Would stay again especially because of it's central location.

“Rooms at the front give a good view of the market. It's better to be in the middle of the front to avoid noisy air-con from next door.”

“Be aware that they have very old A/C units which are VERY noisy.”
 of 5 bubbles ProHospitalityCons, 27 Sep 2016 | Read review
“Ask for an even-numbered room if you want a quieter night, and a room near the lift or at the end of the hall for better wi-fi reception.”
