I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean. Great wi-fi as well. Food in the restaurant is ok. Some of the staff at reception was not very friendly. In my opinion, this is a great hotel and I will return.

Wonderfully stylish hotel in the city center - the location is minutes away from all the major sights (although do take care to not walk alone at night). Room layout is very unique with large spaces and a very cool balcony. Comfy beds and a generally relaxed vibe. Breakfast was great on the terrace overlooking the city. Staff is very helpful. Only wish is for the wifi to be as fast in the room as it is in the lobby.

Clean and well equipped rooms, excellent beds. Friendly and helpful staff,all can communicate in english. Surrounding area isn't so inviting, but safe to walk at daytime. All best sights are on walkingdistance from the hotel (cathedral, Iron House, raiwaystation, central market...)

Had an early flight to catch. We stayed for one night. Room was modern and new. Seemed to me we had an upgrade as there were not many guests around. The room was big. Bathroom big. Swimming pool had a bit of the view of bridge from far. Dinner at the Restaurant is was good. Mozambique chicken curry( not spicy) and Prawn risotto were delicious!

Rooms are very well appointed. Airconditioned and very comfortable. No bath in the bathrooms but otherwise very nice. Bed was very comfortable. Hotel is laid out as a round building so navigating around the premises is rather challenging. Some floors are across different levels. Central elevator is not working. So the only access to the rooms is through the service elevator. Breakfast was a complete buffet. Food seems to be of a high quality.

Sometimes words are not enough, the Hotel is beautiful, the prices are fair. Breakfast is a delight with a view, most of the staff speak English and they are amazing, Fumo, Gomes to mention a few. The rooms with energy saving technology!! They accommodate you and make you feel special..if they improve a few things, they'll definayely make a great 5 star establishment. I will definitely come back here again with my kids. Words are not enough to describe my experience there. Thank you guys😊

This is a very nice hotel. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The rooms are comfortable. Quality is visible in this hotel. The only negative thing is the Wi-Fi. The TV programs will also "buffer" every 5 minutes which is annoying. I will definitely return to this hotel.

Able to check in at 11:30 AM. Roomy & peaceful accomodations on 4th floor, had ample hot water even for long showers. Room was clean, bed comfy, pillows too fluffy but that's ok. Safety deposit box in our closet worked well. Small ref kept our drinks chilled. Received 2 free bottles of water. Walked to the grocery to buy more. Mario at the front desk was full of information. He also lent me a power outlet adaptor. Thank you, Mario. Ate at the restaurant, took ages (to serve tomato soup & ham & cheese sandwich) b/c our waiter was watching tv & other waiters were talking. Food quality was average. Reasonable prices considering this is a restaurant in a hotel. The slightly dirty elevator was centrally located with rooms arranged around it. On our 2nd day, the male staff cleaned our room well, but after he left, a woman with a clipboard knocked on our door, claiming she's "checking things" up & wanted to enter our room. Nobody called for anything & we told her everything was fine & she didn't have to enter our room. Breakfast was at 0600 to 0930. Please see photos taken of the breakfast set up. There was an omelet station with no cook, & I had to ask a waiter for the omelet guy. Most of the guests seemed to be business people. When they ran out of food, they didn't put in more food nor juice. By 0830, the omelet guy has disappeared & most of the hot food was gone. We printed our boarding passes for free. We checked in at the business office computer & emailed our boarding passes to the concierge so he could print them at the front desk. The business office didn't have a printer. Room service is reasonably priced. They said they'd deliver in 15, but it took them 25. No biggie. The server forgot to open our beverage bottle so I had to call them. The server promptly returned to correct the problem. The property is old but is pretty much well maintained to a certain degree. There was a hole in our room ceiling but I'm not buying the place so that's no big deal. The view of the ocean from our room was nice. The spacious room & king bed were great. If you don't expect too much, then this is the hotel for you.
