I spent 3 nights at the hotel. Very convenient location downtown. Room was spacious and clean. Same applies to the bathroom. Service at check in and check out was good. I can recommend a stay here if you look for good value for money.

We spent two nights in Montebelo Girassol and it was a very nice hotel. Clean, good food, helpful and nice staff and right in the middle of things. Most of the people working there spoke good English, which we were great full for.

The hotel has been revamped but has still its old flair, due partly to its art deco architecture. It is beautifully located overseeing the whole city of Maputo, even though a few new skyscrapers are now cutting partially the view. I will only comment on the food , since this hotel is also well known for its restaurant, organizing famous... More

Like you, I am a sucker for an upgrade, so this review may not be entirely unbiassed. When we arrived at this ratheer swanky-looking hotel, it was to find that the very kind and efficient staff had upgraded us to an executive room. That was nice. Even nicer was the room itself - spotless, immaculate, and very modern-looking. It was... More

Wonderful stay. We were impressed with the super clean rooms. The rooms are also cleaned and replenished sufficiently. The king size bed was enough to accomodate my 7 year old.Quite impressive. Free unlimited wifi. Staff are amazing. Love the freshness of the food.

So it's a tough one to review this hotel as the thing that really let it down was out of their control. We arrived late after being delayed from Joburg. The airport pick up was great. When we arrived at the hotel there was really loud music pumping outside and it sounded live. I joked that we were next to... More

A very nice hotel set just too far from the beach and in a less than interesting neighbourhood. The rooms are modern and have all the usual modern luxurious facilities. Language is a serious barrier to good service after the front desk and the restaurant and bar with no view or interesting characteristics. Maputo itself is dirty and you must... More

Firstly i want to congratulate the Hotel, the renewal was absolutely amazing, the rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful, loving the new Girassol, and to complete, the kitchen is absolutely delish, a little advice, invest a bit more on your staff, they are a bit responsible.
