I stayed here for 5 days, and must say it was an enjoyable stay. The staffs are welcoming, and the food is delicious. Got to taste the local beers of Mozambique. They also offer free internet, just in case you didn't know about it. This place great for the family and kids wanting to take lovely holiday in Maputo, Mozambique.

There are better options for a little more money. The room is very dated and there is a window with a wall a couple feet away. The bathroom does not have a shower. The tub had a sprayer, but no curtain so there was water everywhere inside the bathroom. The breakfast was horrible with very limited options of an egg... More

We booked 3 double rooms after viewing the pictures. Our rooms all were dirty, unsafe (with strange steps in awkward areas) and stuffy. Room 1025 had net drapes on the ceiling resulting in dust, small insects etc that continued falling out throughout the night! Spiders could be visually seen trapped in the net.The bath had no plug and taking a... More

Villa das Arabias has friendly and helpful staff, the breakfasts are good, the rooms are adequate, but not great, and the bathrooms are OK, but it is a bit odd that one has to request new rolls of toilet paper from the front desk after housekeeping has been through the rooms. That is a small quibble, though, and everyone was... More

Very nice hotel in the center of Maputo. The room (standard) was a bit small, but clean. The staff was quite friendly and helpful (e.g. Organizing a taxi) and we could safely store our luggage after check-out. There is a small pool and a restaurant, however we weren't really advised so we only realized on check-out.

well it was only for one night. it's rather to expensive for what it offers. it is nicely decorated in an Arabic way. reception staff was not really communicative and motivated. the location at the main road is convenient. for one night ok if you are willing to pay the price..

Nice courtyard, friendly staff, but that's all. Rooms smell awfully, they are very small and quite strange in terms of organization. The carpets in the common areas are old, smelly and very kitsch, all in all just the courtyard on the side of the pool was worth visiting.

Boutique? Maybe when it was conceptualized. The only element that rates positively is the 'courtyard' lounge which is pleasant and cool and not a bad meeting place. As for the rooms: dingy, grubby, small, with no natural light. The corridors were full of old mattresses leaning against the wall. The carpeted stairway leading down to the basement (where the rooms... More
