Hotel Presidente Luanda
Ranked #4 of 43 Hotels in Luanda
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I`ve had the opportunity to stay at this hotel many time during the past 3 years. At first it was an acceptable hotel with good food, internet, etc. Although it was not outstanding it was still good and comfortable.

For the last few months it has been in renovation. The whole ambience of the hotel has changed. Though most of the personnel are still the same it seems as if the renovation have a very positive influence on everybody. One very good thing is that the Managers are more Visible now. Previously one could pick out the managers they were not very approachable. Now they are very friendly and there are more of them around.

All in all I`m very very satisfied with everything.

Lobby and restaurant are nice, staffs are helpful but my room is dated, it is like back to 1970s. They do not have any adapter for power socket, big window in the toilet has no curtain and I am always looking at another building. A safe in the room is good. Expensive but that is what you get in Luanda.

Very good hotel to stay. Very clean, the rooms are nice, with a great view of the city. The hotel is very well located. The employees are friendly and professional. The restaurant food is good and you can always go to the bar for some snacks. The bar is also very pleasant. The prices are a bit high (80$ for a meal in the restaurant buffet and aroud 40$ in the bar for a snack). The only problem is the internet. In the rooms you only have wire connection and the speed is awful. Then you only have wireless internet in the bar, and there the speed is good and you can calmly work there, but they should have wireless internet in more places. And the wire connection should be way better. But overall is a very good place to stay.

I have known of the Presidente for years but never had cause to go inside let alone stay there. I have to say the experience was very positive.
The room is adequate certainly basic and a tad tired (though they say there has been upgrading it seems ot have all been targeted at the 8th Floor restaurant and bar area?).
The service is very good - the staff are friendly and a request or issue is addressed at once.
Location at the end of the Marginal is excellent for walking.
Gym was being upgraded when I was there so no comment on the temp one (hey at least they put in a temp one!)

I was really positively surprised by this hotel compared to the some review that I read.
Actually the location is OK and the hotel is clean.
I had asked some services from the hotel stuff and they were very reactive.
The price is quite high but very reasonable for Luanda.
It was not a bad choice at all.

From previous reviews I was expecting the worst and was very pleasantly surprised with my stay in the President hotel. The location was perfect for business meetings and my morning run along the beautiful waterfront.The rooms were very comfortable.with effective AC. The buffet at breakfast and dinner was good and service very acceptable although that could not be said for some other parts of the hotel.

Two things male the President get to just average, location which is perfect if you have business downtown or in Sonils and the buffet, including the service by the restaurant manager. The hotel is quite old and the rooms more than show it but the service also makes it up to a point. It is being renovated, but work seemed to have stopped at the time.
