Hotel Mocambicano
Ranked #13 of 23 Hotels in Maputo
Reviewed 10 December 2010

Overall this is a decent hotel that offers good value for money in an expensive city. It is basic but it is clean, has a restaurant with a limited menu but the food I received was always of a decent standard, has hot water and is in a reasonable location. Taxix can be got easily to anywhere in the main town/business area. Service was a little slow but this seems to be the norm in Africa from my experience (of 3*/mid range hotels). I will stay there again.

Good stuff
- the price, this is reasonbaly priced for Maputo which seems to be an expensive city
- cleanliness, my room was spotless and the communal areas were also spotlessly clean
- airport transfer at 150MZN, in a modern, clean, air conditioned car. Nicer and cheaper than a taxi
- taxi rank outside hotel
- food of decent quality, although the menu is quite limited
- you can get a reasonable bottle of wine at a reasonable price (600 MZN for the portuguese wines)
- I always managed to get hot water in the morning - open the tap wide and wait a couple of minutes (although how ethically sound this is in a country suffering water shortage is questionable)

Bad stuff
- one day there was no water, but I think this is not specific to the Mocambicano. I was attending meetings at the hotel Tivoli and there was no running water in the bathrooms on one afternoon
- getting towels was a bit hit and miss, one day I had 2, the next none, the next 1. They always rectified this but I had to wait about 30 mins to get towels on one day, and the next day when I requested an additional towel it never arrived
- Service at check in was slow and frustrating, I was told several times that they did not have a reservation for me and I asked them to keep looking, they eventually found it. This was after calling up and checking at least 5 times. They promised to send email confirmation on each of the 5 times and never did. But again my experience is that this is typical of may hotels in Africa.
