Was there for a week and found the location very convenient for business. The rooms were very large. It is old but kept very clean. There is a currency exchange next to the entrance and an ATM across the street. If you need a local SIM card there is a phone shop across the street as well. Airtime available on... More

The parking is non existent, the rooms are 3 star, the bar is excellent and the Portuguese inspired kitchen is excellent. The lift works, the shower works and the beds are comfortable. The check in system is abominable but it is a two star hotel and that said it is excellent value for your money. Remember that it was an... More

I wouldn't go back to the hotel on purpose. The hotel is located in a good area, close to the center of the city. The hotel's restaurant is ok but the rooms is overly dark, at least one of the bathrooms was flooding and it was old. The internet connection is poor, despite being charged per it. The prices are...

As price goes up, so do my expectations. On the 4th floor overlooking the bridge I also overlooked the taxi rank which became a veritable boom-box until 2am. The mini-bar rattled more than the aircon, both of which I switched off because of the noise – only to hear the taxi’s below! There is no parking even though at check-in... More

I have stay in this hotel first time I was in Tete on June 2008. I went for a week to facilitate training sessions for a big company staff members. At the time there were going on some renovation and expantion activities on the hotel. My room was ok, with a big bed, TV, nice bathroon, but no internet on... More

Was there five days for business. Considering that we were in Tete, the hotel is quite good. Rooms are clean and with new funiture. Bathrooms were also clean but a bit old. The price is too high, same level as 5 stars in some countries. But there's nothing better in Tete. You must pay at the check-in. Restaurant is okay.

Taking into account that this is in Tete and therefore you should not expect too much, this hotel isn't too bad really. I had a 'junior suite' on the 1st floor - basically a stretched normal room with some chairs and a table in the extra area. The furniture is basic but fairly new and the room was clean. The... More

I've stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions over the last few years. For a long time this was the least worst accomodation option in Tete, usually fully booked by mining companies. During my last visit I stayed in a 1st floor suite, that was large with a sofa, desk, double bed, LCD TV (with limited channels), air con and... More

I have stayed in the Zambeze 2 times, in march and july 2011, along with some colleagues, in business trips to Tete. Due to the flourishing coal mining business in Tete, Zambeze is almost all the time 100% booked, and it's very hard to get a room. Prices are the same as top quality Maputo hotels, but staff commitment to... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night. It's the only hotel in this surprisingly bustling and nice town in northwestern Mozambique, with very friendly people. It is located at a lively intersection in the heart of the city, with lots of foot and car traffic throughout the day. Even at night you can hear noise from outside in your... More
