We were traveling through Mozambique and had to overnight in Tete. The Motel we were going to stay in was full so we were directed to this hotel. The "mattresses" were only the box springs, as hard as boards. Both my husband and I had a very bad night's sleep. We talked to several of the guests in the morning and they also were disgusted with the mattresses and the price charged for the low quality hotel. There were no mosquito nets even though we were on the edge of the Zambezi River. The people at the desk told us there were no mosquitos in the rooms but we were able to kill 2 before we even got settled in. The towel was very old and thin, and we had to go hunt down a second towel. The bathroom was tiny with the shower curtain very short so that water dripped off the curtain onto the floor and soaked the floor mat that was there.
We were going to pay to use the wireless Internet, but a fellow guest tried to get on with no success. Did not even try then.
On a positive note, the air conditioner worked fine. The food was well-seasoned and reasonably priced though it took almost an hour to receive after we ordered and my husband's chicken was still raw in places (the eating area was also very small which required patrons to share tables). The courtyard area was nice and our car was well guarded, but many things about this place looked like it had been relatively nice when first built but has not been kept up to par nor improved since then. The one redeeming thing about this place was the gentleman at the front desk. He was understanding and very willing to help. However, this is the type of place that I would not even pay $20 a night for in the U.S., but here we were asked to pay $140!!! I felt like it was a real rip-off! This place needs some competition!
