The swimming pool is lovely. Staff are friendly. However everything else is not what is represented online. The dining area is very cramped. Rooms are small and very kitch. Very noisy! you can literally hear people moving around the hotel. Food is terrible. No coffee or kettle in the rooms. Not value for the money being paid.

Stayed two nights and those were two of the worst of my life. Staff were totally unresponsive when there was a problem - in first ten minutes my air conditioning was leaking water quite badly. I soon realised the carpet underneath was soaking wet, so it was a long term problem and it had soaked my bag. Receptionist came in...

I understand that it's not easy at all to find quality accommodation in Africa, especially for a good price, everything here in Maputo is overpriced, but this Hotel is not a good compromise. Room are very small, laud and not clean like they should be. The swimming pool u see in the photos is quite dirty and not-at-all possible to...

Altogether the place was not great. Most rooms are tiny and have no view because they're all on the ground floor (or even below). When I entered my room I found that the bathroom garbage had not been taken out, there was hair in the drain and the bathroom was a bit smelly. After I mentioned these points I got...

Stayed one night before moving to Sundown (see review). Very small rooms (impossibly so for a business traveller), no space to store clothing and frequent power outages (thus no internet, A/c etc). Pool-side rooms are best, as there is light (during the day) and better air-flow. Breakfast is good and staff do their best and try to be helpful ......

First I have to say we stayed here for six nights in spite of all the things we have been gradually discovering about the room... At first sight it seemed ok, it overlooked the pool and we were offered discount (to pay the price of a room without windows and not overlooking the pool) as we wanted to stay longer...

Staff was so friendly, food was great (especially breakfast that comes with room), loved the clean rooms with great décor and pool! Close to restaurants and Spar is a ten minute walk away. Definitely get the grilled chicken if you eat at the restaurant.

In many countries this hotel would be shut down for false advertising. Its nothing that it looks like on its website. A few choice photographs hide the fact that that this building should have been torn down, and not simply renovated. Their is infiltration and bad smells everywhere. Taps dont close properly, AC makes strange noises, and so many small...

Stay for 6 nights on a 1st floor room (see photo for hotel area). The hotel - small, not much space to move around. You can finish walking the whole hotel in just a minute. Small rectangular dip pool. Breakfast - acceptable variety and quality. Fruits are nice. Dinner - meals that you place order from the hotel, they actually...

Was given a room behind reception which meant wifi in my room which was a big bonus. The room itself was small but fine, the bathroom quite dated, and smelt of stagnant water The pool is small and doesn't look like it's been used in months. You get free breakfast, there's always fresh fruit and salad (!) but the range...
