Don't be deceived by the photo's. The place is really a 2* hotel (european standard).
The hotel and room is secure, basic, clean but you will definetely feel robbed for your money. The shower leaks onto the whole floor (poor set up) and apart from a bed, you are left confused onto why you have paid so much money. The pillow had sweat stains, the phone didn't connect to the reception and the sauna and the TV didn't work. It all a bit rubbish. The most frustrating part is the promises from the reception/ management kept making to us to explain why nothing worked/ to fix the problems.
The hotel is secure and the rooms are basic. The best part of the hotel was the breakfast which was very nice.
Generally, the hotel standards are really low in Maputo so you will pay alot for a poor quality hotel/ service. Our final experience at the hotel was being asked to finish breakfast in 1 minute so we can take a shuttle which arrived 15 minutes earlier than communicated to us! Wonderful!
