The only place to stay if your on business in Maputo! Excellent location, first class service, great rooms, excellent food, attentive staff and the first and only hotel I would recommend in Mozambique... FULL STOP. Bruce & John run a professional hotel, which I recommend without hesitation.

The sea-view rooms are really lovely and the breakfast to die for. It is easy to walk to close-by restaurants and the beaches are clean. Staff speak a good English and the hotel is in a safe area. I would recommend to any tourist or business traveller
