Wireless internet. Cold air conditioning. Central location.

A tad on the expensive side, but well worth it this time around.

Back in 2000, lodgings in Nampula used to be a problem, not anymore with the Hotel Milenio. This fairly priced hotel (3200 Mt) is now the favourite dwelling place of businessmen, NGO's employees and aid agencies workers.
Expansion of the facilities and room number is welcome as the region is developping quickly. The new pool in particular is a success. I appreciated the excellent inclusive breakfast served in the new wing.
Free wireless internet is only available in a few rooms (above the reception) otherwise guests are to surf in the lobby, but the service is often down. Alternatively, guests can buy a 1 hour connection time in the restaurant (40 Mt).
Reservation from abroad is a problem as no replies are sent to booking emails.
Some rooms are linked by locked doors, this can be a problem as soundproofing is bad.

Room Tip: the rooms above reception have wifi (101 - 104)

We arrived in Nampula after a full day of travelling by tiny buses so the Hotel Milenio (also known as Hotel Millenium for the non Portugese speakers like us) was like heaven. A clean, air con room, complimentary water in the mini bar, great shower, a good restaurant and even a small gym. We slept well, had a good breakfast (included in the rate) and felt ready to take on the outside world again. Yes you are staying behind the wall to a very different world that is outside but for us it was just what was needed. It is expensive for what it is but so is all accommodation in Mozambique and so in that respect it is better value than many places.

Room Tip: Ours overlooked the pool and had a small balcony where you could also see the street

We had an extremely negative experience at Milenio. We had a booking for two rooms, which was confirmed two hours prior to arrival through a confirmation call I received from the hotel reception itself. When we got to the hotel it seemed there were some issues and the rooms were not available. Knowing this is not uncommon in the country, we patiently waited for one hour and eventually the receptionists informed us they had given out one of the rooms and only one room was left, recognizing their mistake. The problems arose when I asked to talk to the maneger/owner. I informed him about the situation and kindly asked for a solution. Without caring about us, he started humiliating his staff and threatening them that they would be punished like never before, with an arrogance I had never seen in my life. When I explained again I needed a solution for us and not a humiliation for his staff he kept shouting at the receptionists and told us "well just go find another hotel" (it was midnight). I had to fight to get them to find us 2 rooms elsewhere and to pay for the taxi. The owner actually refused to pay the 1 dollar taxi fee (owner of an eighty 100-dollar per night rooms hotel) and only after I threatened that I would report the issue in Maputo he agreed to have the hotel car take us. When I asked for a voucher or some kind of compensation to use in the future he just left laughing without even replying. Conclusion: stay at Lurio or Executivo instead, similar quality of rooms and price but you can be sure you're not giving your money to someone who only cares about your (and his) wallet and who treats their staff like slaves.

Nice hotel. After traveling to remote parts of Mozambique it seemed like a palace. It was clean and the restaurant was good. For U.S. travelers; they take U.S. currency (with a nice exchange rate) and some of the staff spoke English which is nice. Reading the English translation on the restaurant menu is a great way to pass the time when waiting for your food, its great!
