Introduction: In Angola, south of Luanda, with excellent access to the airport, arise the first 5-star hotel in Luanda. Exceptional, chic and exciting, Hotel de Talatona Conventions and its luxurious villas, are integrated in the complex Talatona Convention Center and International Trade Center, the last still being finalized.
Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.
Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.
My arrival experience: Disorganized check-in. Arrived late and had to wait long to check in. Maybe 20 minutes. Not good enough.
What I loved: The beautifully designed building.
What about the food: Disappointing breakfast buffet. Should have much better quality. The bread was close to inedible.
What about the service: The staff is kind, but I expected better for a 5-star hotel, even in Angola. More training is needed.
What about the rooms: The main selling point at Talatona is the rooms. They are indeed lovely. My room had a comfortable bed, flatscreen Tv, working desk and a modern bathroom with separate rain shower and L’Occitane products.
Number of rooms: 201.
Type of property: City hotel.
Location: Luanda, Angola.
Facilities: Pool, gym, and business/meeting facilities.
Complimentary internet: Yes.
Affiliations: Preferred Hotels and Kiwi Collection.
My overall impression: Good+ experience. It’s very expensive but comfortable. The service, breakfast, and overall experience should be better for the price. The room
