My stay was horrible, so say the least. I did not have hot water, there were cockroaches and flies in the room, muddy water from the tap, the room and halls were dirty. But the worse thing is that there were dogs barking all night behind room 123 so I did not manage to get a good sleep. This was one of the worst hotel stays in my life.

Nothing like the photos. Old. Rundown. Dirty. Wifi non existent in the rooms. Tv didnt work. Colleague only had 2 channels and no international programs. Mosquito infested room. Bed was so uncomfortable. Dogs barking non stop right through the night on both nights. Food was okay though.

Located in the heart of Blantyre but slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the main city - it was home away from my actual home, good meals and friendly and helpful staff. Could have enjoyed more if other services like the gym were available.

Coronavirus so got a take away - Sri Lankan good. Was absolutely delicious and large portions for the price - we fed 12 people with 8 dishes. Delivered free and on time (for Malawi). Highly recommend. Only small gripe was it was a bit cold (it had come a long way, in rush hour) but it didn't need to be that hot to be tasty...

I spent three weeks at Lotus Hotel and the biggest takeaway was the staff's warm hospitality to me and my colleagues. I believe I made new friends with the Lotus hotel staff. Only qualm was that the restaurant would sometimes take over 30 minutes to serve your meal which was not fun for a hungry overworked lady like me.
