Stayed for two nights at this hotel. Checkin service was handled professionally. Staff never smiles and I guess it was because of the language barrier. Rooms are well equipped and free wifi was available. Never had supper as it was too expensive and not a great variety to choose from. Breakfast can definitely be improved and service of the waiters... More

I had read lots of negative comments on this hotel before I travelled and I had low expectations. Actually I had a nice experience at this hotel: the food is good and there is plenty of choice (unlike what I read here). The rooms are large, clean and quiet (although the interior design is a bit out of date). The... More

I stayed here for 6 days while attending a conference in Maputo and was very satisfied. The hotel was far better than I expected. The room was not very spacious but it was really clean as well as the bathroom. The breakfast buffet was not very good but it's ok ( you will find something to eat).There is a free... More

I have stayed in this hotel from June 7 to June 10. After a long wait at the front office, staff assigned me a room that was not ready. When I returned back, the staff told me that I should have waited there as it does not take more than 15 minute to set the room. Requested several time for... More

The hotel has a fantastic location in Maputo for business travellers, basically a no frills hotel with good clean rooms with all amenities. An area that may need improvement is the Wi-Fi as it is only reliable in the downstairs lounge, signal is very weak in the rooms. Good breakfast, other restaurants within walking distance e.g. KFC, Nandos

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
