Where to stay in Harare

Harare boasts a variety of five-star as well as more affordable four-star and three-star hotels without compromising quality. The hotel near Africa Unity Square is by far the most internationally recognized and offers excellent service, but for those on a budget, guesthouses on Selous Avenue will serve you right.
