Reception staff never show interest in having new guests and the fact they didn't manage english language made things even worse.
The room was enough comfortable but I believe could have been much better as hotel has just been renewed. Internet connection in the room never worked durin my stay.
Breakfast was quite good and the choice big enough.
Rate is quite expensive but that's Luanda

I've been in Luanda for some times now, and been in another hotels, but this Hotel is definitely the best for my business! The biggest problem in Luanda is the traffic, so being in the center of the town, close to most of the big companies is essential. My room was very comfortable and spacious, the views are amazing, you can see all the wonderful Luanda Bay, the Island of Luanda and the Island of Mussulo (the best beach in Luanda). The service is very good, surely the best in Angola, but what impress me was the lack of problems with water, electricity and other issues that in other hotels made my stay difficult. If you are coming for business, don't have any doubts that this is the hotel to choose!

Just stay here one or two night at the most, occasionally, but feel like want to go out immediately and come back when you get tired and think about sleep only. The view is not the best, but you could observed many new cars on the road since there is traffic all the day every day. Food and the room charges is definitely overpriced. Had to stay here caused there is no other choice and had to get place for crash. All I can say it's a funny experience though..:-). Check all the bills in detail before you sign it.

Under construction right now, gym under construction, dusty road in front. Overpriced restaurant.... (well, overpriced city). Anyway, it may be lovely when the construction is done but at the moment, not worth it.

Angola is absurdly expensive. The Presidente, Luanda itself is OK but a very poor value. We had a little bit of a discount on the rate but were coming and going to field locations, and on each of three check ins, we got overcharged and had to be firm to get the quoted rate. The rooms I had the first two times, on the 11th floor, had no curtain or frosting on the bathroom window and in one of them there were actually workers on scaffolding outside my window.

I also got over-charged, intentionally, in my opinion for what already was a $38 bill for a hamburger, one beer and one bottle of water, in the sixth floor lounge. I never ate in the restaurant because of the prices and expected quality. However the breakfast which IS included in the price was reasonable.

Internet was a LAN in the room, a bit slow and sort of undependable but workable. The business center consists of some computers which i never did use. There is wireless on the 6th floor, you have to ask a bartender for a code, which did not change while I was using it.

KEY - Not far around the corner from the hotel is an INTERMARKET - a pretty good grocery store. I ended up eating things from there. Go out the hotel, turn right and then right again, the store is 1.5 blocks down on the right. It is hard to see because it is has a big parking lot. Also there is a good cafe sort of place on the front street, which is decent food at less ridiculous prices. Go out of the hotel, turn left, left at the street and you will see it.

Traffic is dreadful. Construction making it worse. Leave lots of time to get anywhere. Aside from the places mentioned, i did not see other options for dining, unless you take a cab.

Room Tip: Don't get the 11th floor. If you can get a room ending in "9" that is about the best you are going to do.
