We were booked into this guest house by a relative so that we would be near her in the popular ex-pat area of Sommerschield. An added bonus, we found out later, is that it is one of the few houses in Maputo designed by the famous architect Pancho Guedes. The owners are really into art and the whole building is beautifully decorated. During our stay an art exhibition opened and we were invited to the party.
As to the accommodation, our room (Room 6 top floor) was absolutely spotless as were all the common parts. It was a large room with a television with a good selection of satellite channels. The room comes with an en suite shower and wc but an added bonus was that just next our door was a communual shower and extra wc which came in handy!
The front desk staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. A basic but fine buffet-style breakfast was included. The only extra cost was for Nespresso coffee which was a delight to find. (Other coffees included in the room cost). A selection of Nespresso capsules were brought out on a tray for us to choose - charming.
There is a small pool outside in the garden which has some seating and a couple of loungers.
Really the only negative for us was the traffic noise from Julius Nyrere Avenue which the house backs on to. The house faces a quiet street (with good 24hr security) but to be on the safe side, we advise going equipped with ear plugs. This really was the only down side to this excellent value and attractive guest house and may only affect rooms at the back.
