For the price that you are paying to stay at this hotel it most definitely doesn't meet expectations. Small and smelly dated rooms, terrible showers (two out of three nights nothing more than a drip would come out), below average breakfast and terrible dinner options (despite everything being $$$), unusable wifi in room, and completely rude staff. Pretty much sums...

Whole city is expensive, extremely expensive and just don't know why.This hotel though had the best Wi Fi in all of Africa, I streamed You Tube all night, It also had US Movie channels for movies which was a pleasant surprise. The Evening Buffet was also very tasty though at that price I would expect it to be. The Pond...

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the years that I have been visiting Angola and I can recommend it as a good if basic hotel. It is well run, the staff are helpful and friendly ( somewhat of a novelty in Angola ) the rooms are comfortable and it has probably one of the nicest bars in town...

My brother and I had to do an emergency trip to Lobito and had a two night stay over at the Hotel Continental in Luanda. First and foremost the hotel accomodated us on very short notice which already scored points for them. The rooms were clean and comfortable - not the most modern ito decor but for a lay over...

The Hotel Continental is one of the older hotels in Luanda and gains benefit from that in that it not of cheap Chinese construction. The rooms are not huge, but are comfortable and clean. The air con is powerful and there are a reasonable selection of channels on the TV, either Portugese, Angolan or English speaking. The WiFi work well,...

Older hotel. Rooms small and basic but clean. Friendly staff. Nice terrace to get a drink. Excellent breakfast buffet. Convenient location at south end of downtown near the Marginal. Good location to access Ilha (by car of course)

The Continental Hotel is a good choice if you are intending to save some money and avoid high end and expensive hotels. You may get a good price for a room, but don’t expect a luxurious room, although the hotel itself is very well decorated (lobby, restaurant and outside area). You may even get a better price for a room...

Listen, one can only really review an Angolan hotel if one's had a level of Angola experience. I've travelled over 20 times to Luanda since 2000 and stayed at all the usual suspects (Tropico, Alvalade, Presidente) thus believe the following opinion carries some weight... Normal Angola rules that are in play: 1) a US$500-US$600 per night rate doesn't get you...

“The rooms are very different from each other, ask the front desk for a quite room, as Fridays is the “Men Day” and there is party everywhere in the streets, and some rooms may become very noisy.”
