Staying here during the recent elections will prove not to be the best time to stay here. The place was packed with international observers, media, and some VIPs. It's got a friendly staff, but the hotel was overextended during the time. And the internet worked about 5% of the time. There are not a lot of places to stay in... More

Bissau is very poor and rundown. I visited the Hotel Azalai in the dry season when the distances from the rooms to the main building did not pose a problem. I had a comfortable and peaceful suite which was more than adequate for my requirements. There is good security. The main includes reception, bar and the restaurant. The swimming pool... More

This is where we place most of our guests and stay sometimes too. Re done by the Azalai group, the quality of the accommodation is very good for Bissau standards. The vast expanse and open areas make the service look slow , but the staff are friendly. The Breakfast service is slow and could be over before you get there,... More

I recently stayed at the Azalai; previous reviews are largely accurate. The hotel is set on a former Army compound with small interconnected villas spread out over several thousand square meters in a garden setting. There is good security at the entry gate. The reception desk staff do not speak English. A cash deposit is required upon check-in. I stayed... More

There are not many hotels in Bissau - this is a converted army camp. The rooms are small and basic. There is free wifi which works quite well. The food choice is very limited and service is slow. Surprisingly few mosquitos. We arrived late at night after a long flight (free transfer from the airport) with a prior booking -... More

Bissau has very limited choices in hotels, and even more limited choices where people actually reply to e-mail... Online booking apparently did not go through, so I reserved directly via e-mail. Airport-pickup was no problem. The hotel is located 1-2 kms outside Bissau center, but you can easily walk there (or take cabs or public transport). Plenty of shops in... More

In Bissau, it´s a fair option, one of the best in town. Rooms are basic and small, electric wiring is weird as often you cannot switch off the lights without switching off the a/c. In an oversized hotel with few customers, dinner still takes a long time

I stayed here for a few nights on business recently interspersed with 2 nights in the interior. This was my first time in Guinea-Bissau. On arrival at 10pm I found the reception staff to be quite efficient but somewhat officious. English is not generally understood. The room was small and the shower room uninspiring. Breakfast was not great. Dinner was... More

Perfect for a 5 day business trip. Internet just about OK. Rooms are fit for the job but wouldn't be right for a holiday. Breakfast gets a bit monotonous and the lunch/evening menu is unadventurous but passable in the current circumstances. I haven't seen elsewhere but don't really need to, this is fine.

I stayed in the hotel for a week while I was in Bissau for work. The hotel is enclosed and secure in a cul de sac a little way out from the city centre. There were large wooded grounds and a big swimming pool which made the whole atmosphere very relaxing. The bedrooms are large 3 roomed bungalows with air... More
