This review will focus on the restaurant only. The restaurant is on the first floor of the building the hotel is located in, the hotel itself is on the fourth floor. The restaurant is managed separately from the hotel, and has improved vastly from the days it was managed by the hotel. There is a downside that comes with this,... More

First of all: the hotel only accepts VISA card. So if you don't have that card, avoid this hotel ! The Girasol hotel is not the most exciting hotel I have ever been. It is in a building that looks like it has been designed by a former Soviet architect. The hotel itself is on the fourth floor. It has... More

I arrived in Nampula without arrangements for accommodation. I arrived at the Girassol, only to find them fully booked (probably a good sign!). They recommended another nearby hotel and called a taxi for me. Great customer service!

The hotel Girassol in Nampula is comfortably situated in the 3rd floor of a high building in front of the Cathedral of Nampula. The hotel is international in quality and prices (read: expensive): anyways the rooms are very nice, comfortable and clean and the hotel has a nice restaurant on the last floor, from which you can have a very...

I've been travelling to Nampula for business but recently was pleasantly surprised to discover a direct flight from Johannesburg. Would have described it as a 1 horse town - but it has become a hub in Mozambique. The hotel has a reliable internet connection and a good restaurant with a varied menu (even Halaal for Muslims!) which means if you... More

We stayed at this hotel as a stop-over on our way to the Mozambican north coast, travelling by road from Malawi. The rooms are of average quality, but clean with good bathrooms. Only one staff member at the reception was able to speak English, while all staff in the hotel restaurant struggled with the language. This hotel can work for... More

I stayed in Hotel Girassol several times during my stint as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mozambique. On a volunteer's salary (oxymoron? lol), staying at Hotel Girassol was a pricey luxury, but I definitely needed the contrast from my home every so often. The rooms are great by Western standards: clean, comfortable and classic. I've stayed in a standard room... More
