This hotel is priced as a luxury hotel. However, the rooms are old and pretty basic, but what really makes it a really unpleasant experience is the service. The staff is very unfriendly (sometimes verging on being rude or bossy!); the service at the restaurant is extremely long (count at least 30min for a salad and a beer - if they notice you at all); it is impossible to put the bill on your hotel room as in all other hotels of that "class" around the world - you have to pay rightaway (although they don't even have an ATM and sometimes not even a credit card terminal like at the bar by the pool). You also need to pay for the room in full as you arrive. In the end you really get the feeling that you are being taken as a possible thief. Silly buffet options at the restaurant make it quite unconvenient (if you want to have a piece of dessert at lunch, you have to pay for the full dessert buffet wish costs around 15 USD). They don't have a proper laundry service meaning they have to send things outside for cleaning so you have to wait for days to get your clothes back if you have a suit for example. Pretty boring hotel also I must say, and far away from pretty much everything. There are a lot of other options in Maputo, but don't go for this one - completely overpriced for the poor quality of services offered.
