I stayed here for six nights on business. The room is really well appointed - what you would expect in your modern conferencing hotel. The bathroom was not so good - shower quite dirty with a useless shower nozzle. The breakfast wasn't good - grey eggs and limited variety. Dinner in the Aamari Restaurant is the star of the show...

Spent two nights at this hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious. Modern amenities in the rooms. Right in the CBD. Wifi is a bit of a problem. Could not access the internet for the two days. Its a quiet place usually full with people attending conferences during the day. Restaurant food was nice although i just picked the usual chips...

The hotel is quite nice and at a good location. The room was clean and it had all the needed amenities. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the extra charges though - I did some laundry which was very expensive for what it was - $15 for literally 5 items of clothing (small items). Room service was an extra $2 (1500...

Stayed whilst working in Blantyre for just over a week. Hotel is well located, food at the restaurant was good, and the room was clean / lovely with a little balcony which got sun in the mornings. Staff were super friendly, really making you feel welcome and part of their community - I actually miss our dinner conversations! They were...

The staff is reasonably fine and friendly to be honest.Other than that, it was a bad experience. The floor is covered with an cover that was smelly and dirty. If you have allergy, you will have a serious problem. The price for the room was quite high. Basically we didnt get what we paid. The wifi connection was horrible, always...

Booked one of the cottages so I had a bit more privacy and I wont lie, it was worth it... They are quite spacious and quiet. Its like having your own house for the night. I feel cottages are more personal and I loved the service.

The Malawi Sun is a clean and comfortable hotel with large rooms (mine also had a balcony). Unfortunately free WiFi is only available in the lobby. You need to pay for WiFi in rooms. The reception in lobby was fine for emailing. If you get a corporate rate it's pretty good value by Malawi standards. Advertised walk in rates are...

As previous reviews, mosquito net full of holes, no bathroom sink plug, shower door incomplete etc etc. Also early morning noise from building work going on at the hotel. Friendly reception staff, but thats about it.

Room was great, and in advance for a good rate. However there was a lot of building work going on in the hotel, and they would always start really early, starting from 05.30, so never got a good night sleep. Also, the housekeeping people came really early and disturbed you. Other than not having much sleep, the room was comfy...
