Latitude 13 is located in one of the best quarters in Lilongwe, it is a quiet place with lots of walking possibilities; the hotel has all amenities for an excellent stay, a beautiful garden and shady places for a coffee or do remote work sitting under a huge tree with your laptop; a big pool invites for cooling, the hotel also includes a gym and a spa; staff is extremely nice and restaurant services are professional and respond to customer´s needs; the food is excellent with different cuisines, local, Mediterranean and Indian. The chef looks well after the customers and includes feed-backs in the menu. Rooms are spacious and cleaned every day with free laundry services and free internet provided. The hotel is managed professionally and staff follows COVID 19 rules of distancing, wearing face masks and providing hand sanitizers. I definitely would stay here again and recommend everybody to come and visit this hotel either for a stay or lunch and dinner.

I stayed in a suite. it was not a good experience, the room was extremely noisy, i could hear every noise made by neighbors, as well as music coming from the common area. do not recommend this place for people who want to rest. I called room service in the evening. They told me they will check availability of what I ordered and called me back. They never got back to me. I had to check out at 6 am, and ordered a breakfast at 5 am. reception and restaurant agreed to organize it, confirmed several time, but in the morning nothing was available, despite several calls to reception.

Dear Noisette, We are very shocked about the bad experience you had during your recent stay at Latitude 13. There seems to have been a serious communication breakdown concerning the early breakfast for which I sincerely apologize. We do early breakfast on request on a regular basis for those leaving early. We will improve our system to avoid this happening again. The music you have heard didn't come from the "common areas" as we only have music inside lounge-bar and restaurant but it may have been a recent event on a neighbouring plot on which we do not have influence. The area we are located in is known as a very quiet and peaceful area which is confirmed by many other reviews.

Setting great, food excellent, service friendly and good. Rusty water in taps in my room was the only problem - not too serious. Floor in bedroom deck in JS 18 was not too good either - too flexible. Good value.

Dear JPH, thank you for the feedback and we especially proud of your comments on the food & service. We will look into the reason for the rusty water and resolve it. We only have galvanized and plastic pipes and based on the high occupancy water hasn't been "standing" in the taps for long, but we'll find out. The floor/deck of the rooms in the Junior Suites are wood and may be somewhat flexible but they are very safe as they have sufficient thickness. We are looking forward to hosting you again.

It is a nice, upmarket and midsize hotel in a good and central location. It stands our for it´s industrial design, you feel like being in a metropolitan setting. Food is great with Indian, European and Malawian meals. The crowd hear is a good mix of Malawians and International travelers.

Dear Karla for your review and recognizing that we cater both for international and local clientele. Out of own experience, I know it is always a good sign if locals visit a hotel or restaurant and we are proud of that. We will launch our new menu soon with more Malawian cuisine but also "World Cuisine" and we will introduce Malawian Fusion cuisine. Looking forward to welcoming you again soon.
