I was in Room 205. It’s a small room, but big enough, with a TV, AC, fridge (which did double duty for me as a luggage rack) and small table and chair. There is a shower but no bath. If you prefer bar soap to liquid soap, bring your own. The hotel is down a small street and about 10 minutes by car to the airport. The front desk staff speak English and are very friendly and helpful. I was going to Cabinda on the day I arrived in Luanda and had a few hours between flights. Thanks to the hotel’s proximity to the airport, I was easily able to get a cab to the hotel, leave most of my bags in storage until I returned the next day, and get back quickly to the airport. I would be happy staying here again if I come back to Luanda.
I was looking for a reasonable overnight hotel, from reviews I thought this could work. I was rather scared when we arrived at the hotel, the entrance and outside is not close to what they advertise. The wifi is pretty much non exciting - the arranged driver never met me at the airport - the hotel reception is dark and the rooms extremely small. I had another booking, but cancelled it and stayed at another hotel. Despite my request for coffee before 7 am when breakfast starts, which was not ready, the lady simply just didn't bother. The ONLY positive for me was Beatrice, the receptionist on duty, she did everything to keep me there and please me. Another positive was Mario, the owner, who very kindly took me to the airport when another driver never pitched.
Poor location- it is tucked away in a bad neighborhood and quite hard to find. It’s not really all that close to the airport. The taxi couldn’t get to the front of the hotel because cars were parked in the ‘road’ in front. The hotel is very unclean; lobby smells bad, the carpet on the stairs is filthy and my friend had a turd in the toilet upon Check-in . In the second room he had roaches. Credit card machine didn’t work and ‘customer service’ was limited. For the money, it was a bad value.
The hotel is in the central location of the Luanda city but is not easily accessible. It's in the middle of a not so clean neighbourhood, making security of the occupants an issues. The room is clean but small, the bathroom too is small. Toothbrush and paste is provided. There is no coffee provided in the room. There restaurant is small and on the 5th floor (last floor), food is great (i only had the opportunity to have their breakfast) because when you book, they offer Bed and Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Bar services are offered at extra cost. The hotel parking is extremely small, making it worse for visitors to be picked and dropped at the hotel. I had to change the hotel as i had a business engagement far from the central city because of distance. I would recommend the hotel for someone who won't mind about the small space.…
