Below is my experience with the property.
My arrival experience: Slow check-in due to the system being down, but the English-speaking receptionist handled the situation well. He told me; we could do the check-in later, and he escorted me to the room.
What I loved: To find this level of a hotel in Angola.
What about the food: Impressive lunch buffet with high quality local and imported items. Much better food than I expected a top hotel to be able to in a country like Angola.
What about the service: It is Luanda, not London, and you can’t expect things to work perfectly, but they do a good job. The friendly, English-speaking staff at the front desk makes a difference.
What about the rooms: Beautiful, comfortable rooms. My room had a comfortable bed, working desk, separate sitting area, flatscreen-Tv, a standalone shower and Aromatherapy Associates in the bathroom.
Number of rooms: 288.
Type of property: City hotel.
Location: Luanda, Angola.
Facilities: Spa, gym, pool and business/meeting facilities.
Complimentary internet: Yes.
My overall impression: Great experience. It’s expensive, but you get a high level of comfort, food and service and more than most would expect in a country like Angola.
