“never again place”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Unfriendly receptionist at the check-in. Noising night, bad smelling of the bathroom, light off since 5 in the morning. I used this hotel (?) for one night during a long stay in Maputo since my main choice was overbooked for that night. Absolutely never again classification.

Room Tip: Forget about it

Too expensive for what you get. No way to discount and they want you to pay when you check in. Lady very unpolite at reception in the morning, toilet smelled a lot. Materasses are good but just behind they are working on a big building: it means you don't sleep since early in the morning.
They say breakfast from 6.30: actually at 6.30 they are cleaning the room after dinner. For the same price there's much better.

Well located, in the city center, this hotel is small. I have used their conference room for training sessions. The room is small but well equiped. The best in this hotel is the restaurant with very good food and with good price.

We were in Maputo on a Mission trip so we were at the whim of our hosts. They had not stayed here previously and I dare say would not return. The room was so tiny there was not room for your luggage except on the bed. The beds are Harder than a rock and very very small. The bathroom shower clogged and overflowed and was so small your knees where in the shower when sitting on the toilet.
The Internet? You pay by the hour, it Is sketchy and intermittent and the staff is very unconcerned and responsive about the lack of service.
The only redeeming quality was the restaurant! It is on a patio overlooking a small neatly kept garden. We returned each day bone weary and the food was very good. The menu was standard Mozambique food with a good selection of Indian dishes! The curry was outstanding and we loved our personable waiters. Breakfast was included and it was just okay but they do serve phenomenally fresh baked breads. I would return to the restaurant but would not rest my head here again!
Ps: no elevator, be prepared to hump your luggage!

Very small room and a disfunctioning shower .
Postive point is the balcony!
Location is good and there is a garden.
Restaurant is limited and breakfast is bad.
Former Ibis hotel (Hotel Turismo) is a better option in medium budget range

125$ a night for a kind of suite ( the only room left) with a terrible bathroom small and quite dirty, very old furniture, stain sheets, unkind staff also at the restaurant, breakfast included but if you want eggs you will have to pay 2$ for this! Need more to say that I do not advice this place!!!

Overpriced hotels are the norm in Maputo, for the time being there doesn't seem a way to escape that. However, there are plenty of better options then Hoyo Hoyo. The room was, small, uncomfortable, and the breakfast was simply put....awful. They don't seem to try or care to win your business in Hoyo Hoyo. NOT WORTH IT.

Room Tip: I chose the standard single room with extra bed. Hardly have space to move with 2 people in that roo...
