This is my second time staying at this hotel. It is nicely situated close to restaurant, city centre, banks although far from the coast. The first time I stayed at the hotel, I was given a standard room unfortunately the aircon almost made my variable documents and clothes wet, because it was not working properly. This time round I was... More

This hotel is way overpriced for what it offers. My wife and I stayed in a so-called called 'Exective room' and we're charged MTZ4500 per night for the experience! The room only had a window opening into the passage, and although it was furnished with a double bed, only one towel was provided. The bed and linen were clean. The... More

The hotel was under renovation. I was booked by my company for two separate nights in one week and stayed on the ground floor behind the "business centre". No external windows in the room, and it got very noisy very early in the morning with noises from the lifts. There are hard floors and walls in all the public areas... More

I recently stayed again at Monte Carlo Hotel. Since 9 years I’m coming to Maputo, the last time in 2013. Always I have appreciated that Hotel as a nice, calm and relatively cheap and secure place to stay. Unfortunately, that has changed totally. The Claim Monte Carlo is publishing 5star comfort at 3star price is long gone. They put me... More

The only thing which looks okay is the lobby. Going to my room, you notice the carpets which have to replaced urgently! The room I had was smelling like wet cardboard. The sheets on the bed had a colour that looked more like grey. The sink was leaking and they didn't manage to repair however I reported it more than... More

I stayed here for two nights during my last business trip. The are busy renovating the Hotel currently. It might be a better plan too wait until they are finished before booking there. I found the room quite a bit neglected. The service was also not up to standard, specifically the waiters at the restaurant. I got the feeling that... More

I stayed only one night between my travels and could not even try the dinner nor the breakfast. So, my impressions are only for the few hours I was awake. I appreciated the good service, both in the check in and out, the helpful staff and the information they insisted in giving me, even calling my room to make sure... More
