If you need to be in Luanda, Angola, then this hotel is a good place to stay. Its old fashioned but clean and in good condition. They have full time security on the door and taxis are normally nearby. The best thing about this hotel though is the roof top bar. beer served in refrigerated glasses and great food.

Prior to my trip I was warned that the hotel was basic. I think my colleague was pulling my leg. I'd be happy to find this hotel anywhere. Comfortable rooms, good facilities in the rooms. The gym is reasonable, and the rooftop terrace is great. I did have one issue with the building site behind the hotel working all night...

I originally stayed at this hotel years ago when it was not so good - now its much approved great location in Luanda with great staff very friendly - would for sure here stay again if back in Angola this year.

Considering Luanda extremely high prices, this hotel is good value for money...but don't expect too much. The bathroom had a few problems, but I called maintenance and they were fixed. The room was nice overall. Positive points: A/C works well Bed is comfortable TV with some international channels Beautiful view if you get a front room Staff is friendly, especially...

So the Continental certainly shows its Portuguese heritage. Rooms were fine - the staff are charming, and it felt like a peaceful haven in a bustling city. Absolutely loved the rooftop bar. Again, prices in this city are ridiculous, but with that as a background, this property represents Luanda value for money.

Great hotel located in downtown Luanda, close to Sonangol, and other major government buildings. Pricey as with other nice hotels in Luanda, Gourmet styled restaurant and great staff. Staff speak English and are helpful. Wifi available too. Not a budget hotel.

Flying visit on business. It's not one of the very expensive chrome and glass palaces available in Luanda but for a quick stopover it was perfectly adequate. The plumbing worked fine, walk in shower was a decent size, bed comfortable enough and the air conditioning was up to the task. Check-in/ check-out took forever- partly because they don't take Amex...

Stayed one night and I must say I'm not terribly impressed. If they put as much effort into the rest of the hotel that they put into the Foyer then it'd be a nice place to stay. First impression is good but that's as far as it goes. Bar areas are the absolute bare minimum basics. No décor, bare rooms...

This hotel have very friendly staff! Good lunch buffet and breakfast! Go to see the sunset at the terrace with a nacional coca cola! Well the rooms are ok for the standarts that they have, the big problem for me is the toilet, not so clean as i wish.

The hotel is well located, near the seafront (but far from the Port of Luanda). Service is ok and the staff is very friendly. The day I arrived (very early in the morning) they immediately gave me a room. I went to it, and the room was not very clean and although the bed was done, there was a human...

“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.”
