This is a good hotel for Luanda. It's clean, the rooms are modern, bathroom is clean, but average and the hotel is centrally located. Good for someone conscious of the over inflated Luanda pricing. This one will cost you under $300 a night. Food is clean and edible, but nothing special. There is a bit of a language barrier and the service is slow and at times there is a lack of understanding, but you'll have that anywhere in Angola.

It's no so far from the center of Luanda, but in the morning you can drive for an hour...
Rooms are confortable and with enought space, but there are some noices from outside during the night.
Service not specially kind.
The restaurant has a really nice fish and the menu is very complete for a dinner choice. Breackfast buffet can improve.
Internet very slow...

The rooms are clean and modern.

All amenities functioned well.

The staff was friendly, but I did have trouble finding English speaking staff which is the case everywhere.

Ask for a room facing the ocean, definitely a better view than the road and shanties facing side of the hotel.

Wifi is not available on the 2nd and 3rd floors. It is on the 1st and 4th. The hotel does provide data cables but my experience was bad.

Biggest problem I had was that there is only one plug point in the room, that too at the bottom of the wall near the bathroom entrance. This means you have to place your laptop/phone on the floor while charging. I would really prefer a plug point by the bed.

Ideal location for traveling towards Talatona, as you beat the traffic.

Complimentaryt buffet has a decent spread.

Room tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean. Wifi is not available on the 2nd and 3rd floors. It is on the 1st and 4th

The sadness is that the property is really nice - very clean, very new, and close to the airport. The people are nice, if not proactive, and the rooms are clean, if not well designed. The food is very good, if not inventive and poorly served. The challenge, as you can see, is inconsistency and poor service. It did not help that two days out of the five, we did not have any water. Not just any hot water -- no water at all. This was very disconcerting and there was no one there to tell the guests what to do. They did supply bottled water (after being asked, but not in a proactive way). The hotel is nice, and located near to the airport, but there is nothing nearby -- the beach is 700 meters away down a very scary alleyway and there are no restaurants nearby. It seems to be set in the middle of a very poor area and all I can say is that I hope it provides jobs to the people nearby. If you do not speak Portuguese, do not stay here. This is the only hotel on earth that does not get CNN -- in any form. There is no Wi-Fi in the room and the Wi-Fi in the restaurant was intermittent at best. I would not stay here again if I can avoid it. I feel bad about this because it has such potential, but they need to train the staff, create consistent service and have water available -- every day.

Room tip: Beware of having a room near the road -- it can get very loud at night.

I am staying the third time in this hotel, traveling to Luanda frequently since almost 2 years. The hotel is very clean, in particular the rooms, airco is always on and working 24/7, the shower pressure is strong and water is hot, apart from those features, also important is the fact that the staff is very friendly, customer focussed and talented. The interior is modern and appeals with a fresh look and feel. I travel daily to Talatona, getting picked up in the morning from my client, driving away from city center. Traffic jams towards city center starts at 6 a.m. and it can take up to 9 a.m. - when you stay here you can not miss to hear it.

It is important for me that the hotel offers options after work. Gym and pool is one, the bar/lobby/restaurant with WLAN and wired Internet access in the rooms are others (you need RJ45 connector at least, adapter RJ45 to USB if you use Mac). Apart from getting Internet access as such, unfortunately the Internet user experience (with over 600 ms latency, high packet loss over average) is poor because the hotel relies on a satellite connection to Europe (which we know is expensive and poor by definition). This can be improved because the Angolan Internet market is growing, Internet Service providers with modern sea cables (e.g. WACS) exist.

My lessons learnt: When you try to find a hotel in Luanda, you should identify a clean one (important for me), with a breakfast variety, honest dishes, a gym, a pool, free Internet access in-room, and due to travel time, try to stay close to 1/2 hour drive radius from your working place.

Room tip: If you are able to ask for, go for 3rd to 5th floor with sea view. Sunset is nice in this part of the town, being close to the shore.
