Stayed in Hotel Avenida for 3 nights on business. Although, relatively expensive (like all the decent hotels in Maputo), it is a reasonable business hotel, conveniently located. The bathroom was a bit run down, although still perfectly serviceable, the rooms are spacious, the breakfast was reasonable, the gym clean and well maintained, and the service at the front desk was helpful. Although the service at the front desk was some times slow, all the receptionists spoke decent English, and tried to help whenever possible. It is also conveniently located next to Mundo's - for an informal beer or two, and meal.

It feels like this place was one of the first five star hotels in Maputo and now still charges amounts as if there was no competition. The rooms seem dated (I had a standard room) and the breakfast is just average. The gym is good and has a lot of equipment, although some of it is rather old. The location is a plus and close to everything.

After staying at the Polana and travelling from Maputo I was not that keen to come back to the Avenida based on the view from outside the building. I was quite happily surprised on entering the hotel how good it actually is. Don't judge this book by its cover. The rooms are spacious, featuring a fine bath, large bed and view over Maputo. Very large and good for conducting business. Service at the front desk was again a bit slow but coming to accept that anywhere here. I'd say more a business hotel than pleasure but a very high standard set in quality for Maputo.

Avenida is a modern business hotel with clean, spacious rooms and a good roof terrace with a small pool. Breakfast is an excellent buffet and there's a nice bar downstairs, though the food in the bar is nowhere near as good as the breakfast. It's a bit pricey for what it is, but then so are all the hotels in maputo. Great location, close to bars and restaurants. Doesn't have more traditional charm of Hotel Polana, but actually the rooms are more consistently of better quality - if in a more straightforward business style. So, different from Polana but along with perhaps hotel Cardoso, the other top business choice.

Based on the reviews I've read here, I was expecting something much worse. Perhaps, due to my expectations being low, I've enjoyed this hotel, more than I should have, but there is nothing like a good first impression :)

The hotel is well situated, exceptionally clean, with very helpful and polite staff, and one of the best breakfast selections I've seen in Africa.

The single beds are a little annoying, however this seems to be the norm in many hotels in that part of the world.

While some are complaining, that this hotel is overpriced, I would say that it is on par with an average African price for a decent hotel.

Will repeat, if the need arises.

PS

On a side note, the only negative thing about this hotel, is that occasionally there are working girls in the lobby, later at night. While they seem to mind their own business, this creates a bit of a safety concern - hopefully this will eventually be addressed.
