“Beautiful place”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Mandala Guesthouse is situated in a quiet street in a safe neighborhood. The place has been decorated with fantastic taste and is very comfortable and super clean. The owners, Vera and Miguel, are very welcoming and friendly, creating a very relaxed atmosphere. It's also very good value for money in expensive Maputo. There are restaurants not far, and it's also walking distance to the crafts market. Free WiFi. Highly recommended!

This was a wonderful find. A beautiful guesthouse centrally located, comfortable and spacious rooms, and caring hosts. I stayed two nights and wanted to stay more. Vera and Miguel are also great resources for travel tips and advice in Maputo and elsewhere in Mozambique. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Nice, spacious double room (2 beds) by the lounge, wonderful!

Vera and Miguel have made a beautiful and peaceful place. It's immaculate but still has real character and lots of nice low key design touches. A really relaxed place to stay with warm and hospitable people. Thanks both.

Mandala Guest House is a fantastic option for those looking for a place in an ideal, safe location from which to explore Maputo. My experience here was made excellent by Vera + Miguel, who warmly take care of you and give great recommendations on what to do, where to eat, and what to see in Maputo. On top of that hospitality, the rooms are exactly what one needs - they are of high quality, with air-con, plenty of light (natural too), heavy doors (for privacy) and nice towels. There is also a great outdoor lounge to hang out in, and indoors there is a great selection of books / travel guides to peruse.

You cannot go wrong with Mandala Guest House - it will enhance your time in Maputo whether you are traveling alone, as a couple, with friends, or as a family. For a one night stay or a one month stay, this place will feel like home.

This guest house is decorated in the most stunning manner - it is absolutely beautiful. It is run to a high standard by Vera, who is always ready to help. The room was very clean, had air conditioning and plenty of hot water. The guest house is located on a quiet street with parking space outside and a guard on duty. I would definitely recommend staying there.
