“The best hotel in Bissau, but below business travel standards”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

Bissau is not a town you would visit as a tourist. You're there for development work, to trade cashew nuts or drugs. This is the kind of clientele of this smaller hotel. There are two parts of it: the suites (nicer!) and rooms (not recommended!). Therefore reserve a room early and preferably directly with the hotel to ensure you have a decent stay. The rooms are basic and there's generally nothing wrong with them (a spider or bugs come as part of the 'normal'). There's wifi in the hotel but sometimes it works only in the reception area. The hotel has its own power generator, which is important in Bissau. It's located centrally, walking distance from most institutions and restaurants, which is not to say the area is particularly pretty. Hotel's buffet dinner is a good value and a great choice. Possibly the best food in town. Breakfast (included in the price) is also reasonable - not a huge choice, but sufficient. Given a lack of alternatives - this is probably the best Bissau has to offer to its travelers.
