I didn't stay here. And that's important in itself - this place becomes fully-booked when conferences/events come to town; as they apparently regularly do; to this provincial capital. This is actually the only true 'hotel' in Lichinga. I did, however, order dinner here one evening and I was very pleased with both the food and service. I thoroughly enjoyed my...

I am sorry to say, when I first came to Lichinga I thought they had a nice hotel.... WelI guess this is the only and nicest one... the price is just as high as a very good Maputo hotel, but its standard is very poor.

This is the only decent place available for accommodation and dining in lichinga at the present moment. The hotel is very old and there is not much activity most of the time. The high prices indicate the monopoly position in this small town. The service is quite standard given the remoteness of the place and lack of business.

The hotel offers massive rooms that look empty with a standard double bed or two singles, with a tiny TV and a tiny Aircon. It is however clean and comfortable but not luxurious in any sense of the word. Service can be a bit shoddy at times due to the language barrier more than anything else, and the food is...

I stayed recently in this hotel. I found very poor service. Breakfast is very poor with few options. The stuff are not friendly. Comparing with previous stay, easily I can conclude it is downgraded But I still believe is the best option in this town

This is the best accomodation offered in Lichinga. Let's get that out of the way, as what comes second can't even be compared. That said, this building wasn't designed to be a hotel, it was something else before and the design of the rooms show it. The rooms are spacious but could be better designed to make better use of...

I stayed almost for a month and so know all in-and-out of this hotel. Three times during my stay there was NO WATER SUPPLY DUE TO FAILURE OF WATER PUMP & D.G. SET, but you are lucky at this Hotel only you have power back up and good restaurant to eat.

This is the automatic choice for a short business trip to Lichinga. There are other backpacker-style places but none listed by the major travel websites. Stayed here for 2 nights in a room as large as an average Parisian apartment ... you need binoculars to see the TV from the bed! Unfortunately the price is proportional to the size of...

Stayed at this hotel for three nights and found it to be a great experience. I had read the reviews which weren't the greatest but I think some people may have had negative experiences but I didn't. Rooms were HUGE as has been said. Amazingly clean and with the essentials. I stayed on the second floor and had plenty of...

I stayed on business for four days and the wifi wasn't working the whole time. It's overpriced but there aren't really any other options. It serves its purpose. A word of warning , thought; the restaurant is unbelievably slow (it took more than an hour to get one salad one evening when the restaurant only had three other tables occupied)...
