There are a lot of things that need to be improved from the rooms, the service, the food served at breakfast so if you are not a very fussy traveller like me you will be fine. There is no gym and the service is a little slow

Stayed for 2 nights while on business. The hotel is conveniently located close to the port where I was doing business. The staff were friendly but sometimes a bit slow to provide service. The rooms are fine, clean and comfortable. The only real issue I have is that there is no lighting at the desk so it is difficult to... More

I was spectacle about hotel, but I was surprised to see clean room, with ample space. The internet worked very well. We had room faced to swimming pool. So had great view. But felt rates are bit high. It's very near to shopping mall and centrally located.

The staff were friendly. Rooms were perfect and exactly as advertised. Lovely pool area. Great food. Suggestion to have a room service menu in the rooms. Bar and lunch menu very limited. Comfortable, very clean, well situated, and good service. Wi fi works well.

Avoid road facing rooms as lot of people race at night in their high speed cars. Very near to a petrol station which has all eatables like chocolates wafers etc,. Wifi is excellent. Swimming pool is ok. Seating area around swimming pool is good. There is an Indian (Mr. Bhaskar) cook in the restaurant who may prepare Indian food on... More

Hotel is dated, need a make-over. Breakfast is of poor quality. Room service food options are limited. Food is generally not good. Aircons are very weak. Staff seems very lethargic and struggle with basic english requests. The only positive is that accomodation is not expensive...but that is sadly were it stops.

I arrive early hours Tuesday... i was not even escorted to the room, they just gave me the key card & room number. Fair Price range, decent internet, it could use some TLC here & there... Limited tv channels.

It's a well laid out hotel overlooking a park. The rooms are luxuriously arranged with utmost comfort. The lounge & bar are nice places to hangout while te open sitting area is actually the place to chill with a drink. The staff are very friendly & display professional hospitality.

Mediocre hotel and expensive but relative to other hotels in Maputo it is okay. Good location near to the new office buildings being built and many restaurants in the area within walking distance. Rooms are comfortable but aircon does not work very well, aircon not working properly would be my biggest issue with this hotel, as most travellers to Maputo... More
