“Nice and relaxed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

The staff is very friendly and helpful, the hotel is right in the city center, so we can walk everywhere.
The rooms are not big, but confortable enough with mosquito nets, bed is not big, but it is comfortable.
The room is clean, also the bathroom except the tiles in the tub that had some mold which is understandable in a humid environment.
The only negative point is, for someone travelling on holidays, have no beaches around.

Room Tip: Ask for a groung floor room, facing to the swiming pool

Dear Guest
We are very grateful for your compliments to our staff and we thank you for your time to do the evaluation about Miramar Hotel and the capital city.
In fact the beaches surrounding the hotel are more rocky, but less than 3 kilometers away we can find more extensive sandy beaches ..
We hope to see you again very soon
All the best

The hotel is mostly frequented by business travellers and "Voice of America" personnel, however is not worth the trip as a holiday destination.

The rooms are clean and good. Food is ok. Pool as well.

Best to take room with veranda and direct access to the pool area.

Dear Traveller
With our apologies for the delay , we appreciate the time devoted to the evaluation .
In fact Miramar Hotel has an excellent location for business travelers.
Easily at walking distance we are near of the major business agents and government departments.
Hope to see you again in the near future

Miramar was a fantastic stay after travelling 4 days from Nigeria to Gabon to eventully get to sao tome it was a total breath of fresh air has a real island go slow feel, you can feel totaly at ease walk around at night people say hello no worries off being hassled. The Miramar was really nice (Rustic) but very clean good internet great food nice steak great sea food. Not a Hilton but a beautiful little hotel with great staff and a real nice feel i would def go back nice pool too, right in the centre. For an Island in the middle of no where i would say top class. Also when i had left and waiting for my flight at the airport and the manager from the hotel arrived with $200 saying he overcharged me, now that was real service great poeple and stunnig Island to explore.*****
