Luanda Claas A Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 28, 2008

If you want to stay in a true 5 star hotel like in the USA or Europe, Hotel Alvalade is it. Magnificent accommodations, centrally located, the suites are simply excellent, and the food is pretty good. Breakfast is included. They speak English, and have the usual amenities. The rates are comparable to a similar quality hotel in the USA, about $600 US for a fine suite. The internet access is free wifi, but is not exactly the standard that I am used to in USA, and sometimes is very slow, or nonexistent. But it is there, and I can Skype video conference without too much trouble, although my MagicJack telephone that I travel with is difficult to use here -- there is a 20 second delay or so between the time that you say something and the other person in the USA hears it, making conversation very confusing. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel if you need to go to Luanda.

Alvalade Hotel - The newest Hotel in town

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 29, 2006

Built 3 years ago and located in Luanda, just a few miles from the airport, the Alvalade Hotel is the newest hotel in town.
It's 4**** Star Hotel and has 202 rooms.

Decoration is mostly on the African style and amenities required by the international costumer are all available at this accommodation.

Rates start at $200 USD per night.
The odd thing is that this price is considered normal for an Hotel in Luanda !!!
[Luanda is expensive. Gosh!!]

Great Place to Stay!

What a welcome respite from the city. After coming from the provinces of Angola, the Hotel Alvalade was an oasis. Great rooms with city and even harbor views. Would definitely recommend staying here if you can afford it.

Unique Quality: Has a nice rooftop swimming pool, but pricey at $170 /night. Rooms come standard with air-conditionining, telephone, radio, Mini-Bar, safe, satellite TV, and a nice bathroom.
