Most first-class hotels in the capital were fully booked for visitors and guests who intend to pay their last respects to the late president.
Hotels that hitherto had rooms available at most times have been compelled to transfer some of the guests to other small hotels.
Managers of the hotels admitted that the final funeral rites of President Mills had attracted several patrons.
CITY & BUSINESS GUIDEâ€™S checks at the Alisa Hotel indicated that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had asked for the reservation of about 20 rooms for guests who would take part in the funeral service.
Yvonne Izzo, a Manager at Alisa Hotel, confirmed that there had been bookings by guests who would be attending the funeral.
She said â€śa few of the guests have checked in and we are expecting about eight to check in today.â€ť
She however noted that rooms were available to accommodate the numerous guests.
However, activities at smaller hotels visited by the paper were minimal.
Media reports say hotels such as Best Western Premier and Highgate Hotel are also receiving guests.
