I stayed in the hotel for a week while I was in Bissau for work. The hotel is enclosed and secure in a cul de sac a little way out from the city centre. There were large wooded grounds and a big swimming pool which made the whole atmosphere very relaxing. The bedrooms are large 3 roomed bungalows with air conditioning, wifi and a drinks bar. Water pressure in the shower was low but this was unavoidable. Cleaning of the rooms was done well.

There was plenty of comfortable seating in the long lounge. Unlike one other reviewer I thought the restaurant was fine with a varied menu. The range of food available for breakfast was not as varied as you would expect to find in a western hotel but it was perfectly reasonable. My only criticism is that the service at the bar was incredibly slow.

Stayed at Azalai Hotel Bissau with very large rooms, very clean and restaurant serves good food in the evening. WLAN works very well in Lobby and is free of charge. For African destinations I was positiv surprised.

The Azalai is not a conventional hotel. But then again, Bissau is not exactly a conventional town. In a location that is very challenging, the Azalai is a reasonable hotel at a more than reasonable price. It is not a standard single building but rather a collection of town house style villas spread out across a very well kept and very beautiful ground. The security is fine. The reception area and restaurant aesthetically pleasing, and the room adequate. It was small but there was hot water and air condition and working wifi. The lights stayed on and the location is great. That is way more than I could have asked for. However the restaurant is the pits. I mean how can you consistently mess up french fries or grilled fish. The food is awful, expensive, and even the breakfast reflects the poverty of the location and not the price of the hotel. It is so bad they would do better to eliminate it altogether and let the guests fend for themselves. The pool and hang out areas seem fine. Bissau is a nice town that hopefully will modernize soon. The Azalai is good enough to get a return visit only by default and because the price is not out of control at $110 per night. In another location, I would be a lot harsher, but for business or vacation, this is more than adequate comfort. Forget about TV. Limited at best. Staff is friendly; you can get by with French or English if you do not speak Portuguese. Overall, don't be afraid of it. Just keep your expectations reasonable. If you are going to Bissau, you will have to be prepared to do that anyway.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be about the same. But I would ask them to show several and select myself. Also there is a nightclub on the road near to the back rooms. If you can't handle late night music, may be better to stay closer to the security gate.

Great for working trips. Quiet atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff. Great pool. Internet access and good business centre. Pleasant, green areas, quiet even while under renovation. My room was great. Relaxing atmosphere. Will come back.
