The pros : central location downtown Maputo, nice and efficient staff for check in, good rooms, very large buffet for breakfast. The cons : airport transfer not well coordinated, entrance in the hotel not easy when arriving by car due to the lack of space on the street, Internet a bit slow.

Great location. Hotel is very neat and tidy. Lobby is fantastic to relax and meet people. Staff is nice and helpful. Break fast is ok. Good choice for business trips and stay... Centrally located in main avenue. Rooms are big enough, there is wi fi but very slow connection!

I often travel to Maputo for work. And have previous stayed at the Southern Sun. This trip I was convinecd by colleagues to stay at the Avenida because of its great location with close proximity to other restaurants and our offices. I really, really regret this decision because of the horrible customer service: 1) My flight into Johannesburg was delayed... More

I stayed here for a meeting and contrary to other rviewers found it a very good hotel. My room was spacious and well equipped although I didn't get a sea view. The bathroom was clean and came complete with all amenities I could ever want- toothbrush, comb, shaving kit as well as all usuals! The service was fast at receptions... More

Somehow they claim this is a 5 star hotel, probably they don't know any better. I want to help these people so I'm going to tell them what is wrong: 1. They are available through booking on the internet, but when you hit the reception after prepaying, they don't know if you actually paid. To their credit, they will give... More

This is a good but unimaginative hotel. The breakfasts are comprehensive and the rooms reasonably comfortable. Bring a travelling bath plug if you want a bath! Well posituioned and surrounded by good places to eat. glimpses of the sea from the rooftop terrace. Good well equipped gym but the pool is tiny.

Very expensive for what it is. My first visit to Maputo, so do not have any other hotels to rate it against. Breakfast was actually good, a freshly cooked omelette and lots of fresh fruit available. The whole place lacks character - especially the bar area. Fortunately you are next door to a lively place where football/rugby is shown. The... More

It is not a 5 star expectation...Rooms are dark and in need of same renoval items. If you are looking for luxury you must stay at... More

Breakfast was never ready at 06.30, you had to pay for access to internet!? at a 5 star hotel? Twice we got a note saying, you will be checking at tomorrow, I went to the reception and after checking their computer they realised something was wrong and they had done a misstake 2 times

The hotel does not have many bells and whistles, but for a hotel that has a good room, consistent (or at least relatively consistent) internet, and is centrally located, Avenida is a good choice. The breakfast is remarkably expensive for the quality (or even if it were high quality), but there are some other places to grab lunch (or get... More
