“Puts the "Home" in "Guest House"”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

The Rouxinol provides a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere and a "family" touch to their service; from a chocolate on your pillow to personal menus for lunch and dinner. I'll be going back again and again....Tim

I had a wonderful stay at the Rouxinol Luxury Guesthouse: my room was very comfortable and matched the website description. The Koi pond and garden-like atmosphere was especially nice. Generators, hot water, A/C and fast internet all worked well. Quiet street. Staff can be overly enthusiastic while trying to be hospitable - I asked for peanuts and potato chips for a group of three who were hanging out after dinner and was served/charged for 3 orders of chips/nuts/fruit/cheese/olives - most of which were untouched. - just explain carefully what you want and they will do everything possible to make you happy and feel pampered. The only drawbacks to long stays are: no gym/fitness room (but the floors are clean enough and large enough for yoga in your room), no bar (although you can BYOB), and long delays between placing meal orders and being served very nice meals (but you are warned in advance that the kitchen needs several hours of lead time).

if you've never been to Luanda, you will want to stay at Rouxinol. Though a little more expensive than other guesthouses, the extra price is worth it. The owners are unbelievably friendly and accommodating and the staff were wonderful. Room was well-appointed, Wi-Fi service, and had electricity the entire time of my stay as they've thought of the comfort of their guests at every turn. Extra thanks for going well out of their way to take me to the airport on a Friday night through terrible traffic when my arranged driver did not show up on time. They made sure I got on my plane to ensure that I was not stranded at the airport given my late arrival to the airport. I could not have asked for better hospitality and concern for my well-being being so far away from home on business. Thank you, again, for providing a bit of calm and sanctity in the hustle and bustle of Luanda. Also, the location was extremely convenient.

Luanda, Angola is a very difficult city, the most expensive place in which to work in the world. The Rouxinol Luxury Guesthouse is an oasis of tranquility in the exorbitantly priced mediocrity of Luanda. Foad and Farah have built a very comfortable place and take great care of their guests. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood near the American Embassy, not far from downtown. Breakfast is excellent and dinners can be arranged. I work in Angola for six weeks at a time and only stay at the Rouxinol. The internet is good enough to video Skype, and each room has a desk and fridge. Kitchenettes are also available.

I stayed at the Rouxinol whilst on business, the rooms are lovely and well equipped with your own drinks and snacks bar. Satellite TV and wireless internet made my stay a pleasure. The English speaking owners are very guest orientated nothing being too much trouble for them. The standard of food served is good. The Guest house is centrally located thus enabling the traveler to save on transportation costs. The Rouxinol has its own taxi service with English speaking drivers which also helps a lot if you do not speak Portuguese. Nigel Pepperell South Africa

Anyone who travels to Angola frequently knows how hard it is to get a decent room for a reasonable price without having to book months in advance. Rouxinol is the best option in town for me. Owners and staff are very friendly, rooms are clean and services provided actually work. No problems with internet and food is fine too. Also, very safe place which is always a plus in Luanda. Much better than any of the 3 or 4 star hotels that leave much to be desired and have prices of 7 star hotels…

Stayed for 4 nights at Rouxinol and enjoyed them all. The internationally minded Persian owners that have travelled the world before setting up this guesthouse a few years ago go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable. The beds are comfortable, the breakfast yum, and the internet works well. While Luanda is an extremely expensive place to stay (320 a night here), I still felt that the transportation provided by the hotel was a bit pricey. Make sure to hire a car and driver to get around the city and leave the rest to Rouxinol.
