The environment is very peaceful with good wi-fi connectivity. I stayed from the 5th-10th October, 2014. The hotel nice lounge and beautiful garden by the pool side. Their breakfast offers a wide variety of dishes, but the other meals are very expensive. One needs to carry his/her own adaptor as the hotel might run out of them. It is within... More

The service at reception was good. The bathroom is good. The room had a strong smell of cigarette. The buffet breakfast is really really limited and does not come close to the standards of the acclaimed hotel rating. Happy that there was wifi even though it was intermittent.

The hotel is fairly impressive from the outside and it has a good feel on the inside. The reception is freindly and efficient. Rooms are reasonably sized and neat and tidy. It has a nice courtyard with a nice big pool. Service at the pool is only ok, if you can get a waiter. The meals at the restaurant are... More

Stayed at the hotel whilst on business in Maputo in November 2014. The Rooms are not of great quality and the room numbers were printed on paper and pasted on the room doors. The workers at the hotel was very helpful but over all the hotel was not one I would stay at again.

I stayed 7 nights at this supposedly 5-star hotel. A shuttle bus picked me up at the airport which was really nice. Location is acceptable but far from perfect if u are doing business. Hotel infrastructure is just below average whereas rates are not. Reception area is spacious and well furnished. Swimming pool is rather small but correct as well... More

Stayed at this hotel whilst on a business trip in December 2013, the rooms themselves are pretty average and unfortunately that was the best part of the hotel. The service is average atbest but the rrestaurant is simply horrendous. The food is virtually inedible, it tastes like it's been recycled for a week. The best part of the hotel was... More

Arguably the best place to stay in Maputo. Peaceful environment and very polite and courteous staff. Rooms were clean and spacious. Very conveniently located, near all major landmarks. Perfect place to stay for spending a vacation in Maputo.

Good rooms, clean and well serviced, with intact mosquito netting - no mosquitos despite the season. On the whole there was nothing bad about the experience. Good wifi, good food but very expensive. Well situated, close to ATMs and town. This is a safe choice for anyone looking for accommodation in Maputo and willing to pay quite high rates.
