The world famous Holiday Inn brand with its hallmarks of “a great sleep”, “a great breakfast”, “a rewarding stay”, and “a can-do friendly staff”, can be sampled in Zimbabwe’s capital city Harare.
This well laid out 201-roomed hotel is ideally located on the perimeter of the city’s central business district making it an oasis of comfort and tranquillity in the busy capital and is the perfect luxury accommodation in Harare. Ample and secure guest parking gives the option of driving or taking the short walk to the city centre with its many attractions.
Holiday Inns are about convenience with comfort and the one in Harare is no exception. Not only does it uphold world-class standards of service provision, but it also adds African Sun’s famed “can-do” culture when it comes to guest requests and preferences.
The Vumba Restaurant, adjoining the swimming pool area, offers buffet-style meals which guests can make as quick or as relaxing as they wish. Breakfast, from full-English to Continental, is a specialty and is designed to nurture and sustain guests who are leaving for another destination or just exploring Harare and its environs. Holiday Inn Harare
takes the traditional view of breakfast – the most important meal of the day.
Business travellers are particularly well catered for by Holiday Inn Harare’s newly-refurbished Business Centre. An “office from the office,” this hotel has staff that will advise, guide and assist guests in their business and social arrangements. Meetings and conference facilities for groups from three to three hundred are expertly arranged by qualified staff and every need from food and beverages to the latest in audio and visual aids is available.
Comfortable, well-appointed rooms range from 84 spacious twin rooms, 96 king leisure rooms, 17 executive rooms to four luxurious suites. A special touch is a wide choice of pillows to provide a great sleep after a day’s meetings or sight-seeing in Zimbabwe’s vibrant capital.
Holiday Inn Harare
, blending Holiday Inn convenience with African Sun’s great welcome and world-beating hospitality, gives its guests a sense of familiarity and dependability with that added African tradition of becoming part of a family.
