Reviewed 3 September 2013

Well located in the heart of the city, nice but small pool, very nice gym, a rather good buffet (at 70USD per person !!) but rooms that do not match the 4 stars rating of the hotel. The rooms facing the main street are very noisy, double glasing does not exist, windows are probably over 20 years old, carpets also.......

As Alvalade 4-star hotel does not have Internet for 3 years, every time I come to Luanda (I come frequently, 2 weeks monthly) and Baia 4-star hotel was full, I decided to go to Tropico, from the same group, TD hotels. It stays in a district called Kinaxixi. The street has a lot of garbage and some rats, but it...

After reading other reviews, I was expecting quite a poor experience when staying here while delivering a training course. Far from it - it's the best hotel that I've stayed in in Luanda and excellent overall. My room was on the 10th floor and was large, clean, modern, well equipped and had a great view across the bay. It's true...

For sure overpriced, but this is Luanda, it's the average price for a hotel there. The only thing that could be acceptable is the buffet (forget about its price which is 70USD!) which is quite rich. Otherwise the rooms are old, dark, not so clean, and I almost got an asthma crisis last time I was there because of I...

The hotel is old, the service is average, the rooms are just ok, the Internet is hit and miss, as it is normal for Luanda the price is high. The only saving grace is the food, the buffet is quite decent.

Recently spent 3 nights whilst on business at this hotel and have absolutely no desire to return. It is advertised as at 4* establishment but comes out as 2* at an exorbitant price.

Hotel is well located but not nice. Rooms need to be cleaner. Service was also not the best, with a big problem each time we were in the bar and requested separate bills for the different people we were there. Price was sky high and far far away for what you receive.
