I was booked in here by my company as the project I am working on can't stretch to my usual excellent destination - the Cardoso. First impressions were good when I arrived - it has a lovely leafy courtyard with pool, surrounded by the rooms. If decorated and run by someone who knew what they were doing it could be... More

Don't go here. There is no consistency with the rooms. Half of our business party got decent rooms, and half got terrible ones. The food served at breakfast was old. There were insects all over the food and staff were very reluctant to assist. Rather pay extra and go somewhere else.

Going to mangas for me its like going home. Everyone is friendly and the pool small and private. Dont expect a 5star hotel, but more a guest house. Location could not be better, but at night is very calm for you to sleep. Thank you all and hope to be back soon

I spent one night here after traveling a great deal from Johannesburg to Maputo, and before spending 6 weeks at a guesthouse in Maputo. After traveling, I was excited about the great presentation of the hotel from the outside and the warm welcome. I was in the Singapore Suite which had a comfortable bed that was decorated with flowers. The... More

Spent two nights at this cozy city hotel. Lovely location, walking distance to many eating places. The rooms are of average size with basics. Didn't eat at the hotel given the proximity to lots of restaurants.

There was a big trade fair in Maputo. Rooms were fully booked at the better hotels. I was glad for a place to unpack my bag. Restaurant on street is nice. Good wine. Lots of champagne. Nice fish. Staff are primarily non-English speaking. Challenging for me. Rooms were strange. First, I was given a key. A metal key. The old... More

Everything was a terrible experience. Never ever stayed in such a hotel and to think it was $180 per double B&B. The reception was inefficient or they pretended not to understand. The service the rooms everything was not up to standard.

I stayed in this "guest house" for a night only, on my travellings within Mozambique. However, the service is really bad, at least at the reception. We were promised early breakfast because we needed to travel early, we were promised and then nothing was ready. The reception guy did not even bother to arrange with anything with the kitchen, as...

In October 2013 my colleague made me a booking at this hotel for 3900 Mts/room/night. When asking for an e-mail confirmation, the hotel said there is no need, the price is this. When I arrived I was told my room is #42. Fine. At the check-out they tried to invoice me 5900 Mts! When I said this was not the... More

I'm sorry to say that this was my worst hotel experience ever. The hotel is actually nice and clean, the breakfast is ok and the staff of the restaurant are tremendously friendly and helpful. But the staff at the reception is a disaster. It took us two hours of arguing before we got our room, as the lady at the... More
