Even though this is Luanda and the prices are silly for everything everywhere, this hotel is not value for the money. - The hotel does not provide drinking water (!) except 2 small bottles on your first day. So if you are there longer you are without water -- unless u buy it from the hotel a high price. WiFi signal is very weak in the guest rooms - to get a strong enough signal I either had to stand just inside the room door, or go to the lobby lounge (where you will see many other guests having a video-conf with family.
BUT...in the room I found a cable to the in-house network, plugged in my laptop and that speed was blazing fast! It was incredible! Using speedtest.net I measured 29.81 Mb/s download and 70.31 Mb/s! And it was real: I downloaded iOS7.1 in a few short minutes. Sent out photos via email without any issue. BASED ON THIS I RATED THE HOTEL 'VERY GOOD' OTHERWISE IT WOULD BE RATED AVERAGE.
i FOUND THE amenities in the room to be OK. The staff at breakfast has no sense of service and appear to do you a favour when you ask for coffee (I was there for 5 days and the attitude never changed across the days or the staff. The quality of the food was average, with the omelets on the buffet cold every day.
Reception was helpful as was the in-house travel agency.
