Skyna Hotel Luanda
Ranked #7 of 39 Hotels in Luanda
Reviewed 30 July 2012

The Skyna Hotel provides standard level accommodations and is a good option for short business trips. The hotel is let down by the poor service in the restaurants and bars where it is almost comical how surly the staff can be. The rooms are clean and quite comfortable and internet access is reliable with wifi in common areas.

They have definitely improved their service since last time i was there. Internet is good, they also have offered free sodas and beer in the mini fridge. I was brought fruit on arrival this time. All things that didnt happen last time. Other than that it is a basic business hotel. It is just over-priced...but hey welcome to the rip off that is Angola.

The Skyna offered nearly all the services one is used to in Europe. There was even a kettle in the bedroom and coffee sachets - although these were not replenished after the first day.
Aircon was fine. Restaurant offered a fabulous buffet breakfast plus cooked omelettes to order.
Dinners were pricey - but not for Luanda. Set meal was $35 and buffet was about twice the price. We ate out one night and that cost $50.
Not a tummy bug in a week.
Room had wifi, but also an Ethernet connection which was faster and more reliable.

Room Tip: The higher the better for the view.

Angola is well know for expensive hotels with basic cheap rooms and no service, this hotel will not disappoint, it's below average and over priced. Check in was a joke and took for ever! No hot water in the morning in the shower and breakfast was just not great with scrambled eggs having green things floating in them and the bacon looking like it had been there a while. Cakes and pastries were ok. Hotel is not old but the decor is dark and rooms decor out if the 1970's.
Give this one a skip, only positive in centre of town.

I had heard many things about how expensive Luanda is and how terrible the hotels were despite the outrageous prices. But I must say that the Skyna is a brand new hotel and I did not have problems with the drainage. The best thing for me is the new hotel with the "new" smell and not that old hotel smell. The need to make an advance payment for the extras is a hassle but if you just get that out of the way when you check in it is no big deal. The hotel has pretty good wi-fi coverage but I can't get it in my room. But all rooms have cable internet and the speed it quite good.
