The first impression wasn't great since the airport shuttle did not show up, in spite of the fact that I called at least three times to confirm. This was made worse by the fact that I arrived late, around 11pm. checking in took way too long because they couldn't find my reservation and the person responsible for online reservation wasn't...

This is an overpriced hotel. It is in the old part of Malabo and next to the port, That's it. Apart from that, everything and I mean everything is overpriced.

Spent eight nights at this hotel during a recent visit to Malabo. Altogether it was a very pleasant experience. The place may not be as fancy as its sister Sofitel unit in Sipopo, but it is much more conveniently located. Its smaller size also adds to that “cozy” feeling. The staff—from the Front Desk to the bar & restaurant and...
