This supposedly five star Hotel is NOT up to scratch. Let’s start at the entrance. Empty water bottles in the flower beds. A Doorman that does not greet you. Breakfast served is cold, no bacon, fried eggs or omelettes are available. The passage smells dusty, there are stains every where on the carpets. The Hotel rooms needs serious attention. The... More

The TV wasnt tuned into all its channesl but that was fixed fast. Breakfast is not a huge selcetion but more than adequate. A well lcoated hotel near... More

I had no hot water on the last day and the toilet was disgustingly dirty. My colleagues had issues with their aircons not working and also didn't have hot water. Staff are not very helpful in trying to make the stay easier and don't even try organise cheaper taxis. The hotel definitely needs a revamp soon to stay with the... More

Average hotel which claims to be a 5 Star, average rooms, blankets stank, room service was pathetic, breakfast buffet was terrible. I would recommend anyone who plans to visit here have second thoughts and book another place instead.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights because we had a large conference in their facilities. The hotel is extremely bare and bland, it has no character whatsoever. Formally, it may have all the features of a 5*-Hotel, but everything is of the minimum. Start with the sausages on the breakfast buffet (they look like the cheapest, offputting sausages... More

The Hotel is clean and has all the basic necessities, although there is only wi-fi in the reception area. The Bathrooms are tired and need to be revamped and breakfast is basic... to say the least. I would recommend it for the businessman who is looking for a no frills place to spend his time in Maputo, although not that... More

The VIP claims to be five star, but it is more like a two or three star hotel with five star prices. The only reason I stayed there is the proximity to my client’s office, but in the future I will be staying at the Cardoso, which is on a totally different level of quality. The hotel is fairly nondescript,... More

Went for business trip to Maputo and had a pleasant stay. Hotel staff was at times a bit clueless but other were good. Had to extend my stay but they got the booking wrong and locked me out of my room, after asking to speak to the manager, he eventually got the confirmation and sorted it out. Room was comfortable...
