This hotel is definitely not a top choice in Maputo but it was adequate enough. I stayed there because of a conference that was taking place at the hotel conference facilities. The room was clean and had all the standard amenities like an in-room safe. Internet service was complementary with both wired and wireless but connecting was difficult and sporatic. Eventually I was able to connect but needed the assistance of the hotel IT person. There is also an internet cafe free on site.
A branch of the BCI Fomento Bank is located in the building.
There was no exercise facilities except for the pool. Across the street from the hotel is a park with a fitness trail. Every morning and afternoon you could find many people in the park exercising. Beyond the park is the bay. I chose to run along the road following the bay. This was a pretty view and safe enough during daylight hours.
There is also a new shopping mall about two blocks from the hotel. Very upscale by Maputo standards. Restaurants are a little sparse close to the hotel and need a taxi for most places.
