Unfortunately had to stay here a few times over the past 9 months due to work. The workers know very little or no English and treat English speaking patrons very ignorantly. Check in was a disaster and desk clerk nearly gave up on the whole situation even though we remained calm and tried to explain things to her. Food and...

Went to Angola on Business and stayed overnight in this hotel. It's a four star hotel and has sufficient amenities to qualify but I would class it purely as a average stay.... The cost is of course, as it is everywhere in Angola exorbitant and the facilities average. The rooms are comfortable and functional but there was no facility to...

The hotel is excellent even though is quite expensive, but Luanda is an expensive capital to visit anyway. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very polite. The pool area provides an excellent view of the city but unfortunately the most of the day it is in shadow so forget sun-therapy. One of the things that every time...

This hotel is a bore! It is old and needs to be renovated. I stayed here whilst on business and I couldn't wait to leave. The wife is not available in rooms, so one has to go to lobby which is an incovenience. It has that old curtain on the bath for a shower which is disgusting. I would never...

Everyone knows that places like Luanda are extremely expensive but you should really try to avoid going to this hotel. The prices are as mentioned extremely high, the service is poor, the rooms need to be refurbished, people at the reception are rude and speak English if you pay for it :), the food is not bad but at least...

Luanda is a very expensive city. Even though the Alvalade is one of the more economical hotels, I feel that a lower price (still $550 a night!) does not mean you can skimp on the basics. No hot water for one night, shower curtains held together with a shoestring, one plug for the basin and the bath, poor English among...

I was in the hotel in 2013 and now again. The hotel seems to be getting older and the rooms start to need some renovation. On the plus side they let you check in early (8:00) and check out late (20:00). The breakfast continues to be good, but the buffet at lunch is not worth the price (~75 usd). When...

Brief review this one. Been here twice, in the last couple of months. My company use it as a safe haven between returning from offshore and the international flight. The company arrange vouchers to be used for food and drink per person. These are worth $40 dollars. We get email confirmation of the voucher request a couple of days before...

Working for the university of South Africa, I stayed in this hotel more than 10 times. Our work was tough and coming back at the end of the day to the Alvalade was always a pleasure. We used to take our meals there, which were very reasoable. The rooms are clean, with confortable beds. The hotel is really expensive, but...

Whilst I have eaten here at lunch many times, (food at lunch better than dinner), I have never stayed until last week.
