Hi! I'm organizing my travel in Mozambique (I'll be there in August) and to obtain visa I need a written received for hotel reservation. I'll spend my first night in Nampula (I'll take a flight from Dar Es Salaam to Nampula) so I'm looking for a cheap hotel accomodation there but it's quite difficult reserve because no hotel seem to have an email address (I found only Girassol contact but it's really expensive). Does anyone have a suggestion? (on my Lonely I read about Milenium hotel but the email address they indicate doesn't work...)
Thank you!!!

Hi Sara

For your visa application purpose, any hotel in the area will be OK, so I would contact Libelula in Nacala and ask them to help:

Otherwise for Nampula, also quite expensive but I found this on mozguide forum:
"more details regarding the new (only been open a week or two) "City Hotel" in Nampula. It is on Avenida Francisco Samuel Manyanga, near the corner with Avenida da Independencia (the Avenue on which the govt "palace" is), and opposite Banco ABC. A double (twin beds) room, or double bed, is MT3000 (about $100), and I suppose a single could be cheaper but did not ask, unfortunately.

City Hotel Nampula contacts:
Tel: + 258 26 213 904/5
Cell: + 258 84 441 4044

Although still expensive, this is by far the best value in Nampula, at present.

The only big advantage that Girassol has over City Hotel is that Girasoll has basement parking whereas City Hotel only has on-street, guarded parking out front.

What's wrong about Girassol Hotel? I think it's a bit cheaper than City. Is Tropical Hotel still excisting?

Do you have any recommandations for guest houses or hotels in Ilha do Mocambique?

For the transport between Nampula and Ilha, will it be easier and/or cheaper take a taxi than renting a car?

Going there next week.

Do you happen to know a guest house called TerraƧo das Quitandas on Ilha do Mocambique and do you know how to get their phone number and e-mail?

Now hotel in Nampula.

A month ago I stayed at Girassol Nampula with two others - so 3 separate rooms. We were all unanimous that the rooms were not cleaned properly, the service poor and even though there was renovations going on, the place had a generally run-down atmosphere. Nice big restaurant with OK food and pretty good breakfast so that is a big plus. Two of us experienced burning feelings on our skin that was either form badly cleaned linen or perhaps fleas! Very uncomfortable night!

I had a good look at City Hotel and it was much cleaner with better bedding, fridge, complimentary coffee etc (not at Girassol) and fittings, friendly staff. If you are two people it is cheaper than the Girassol. The City Hotel Nampula does have a far more modest restaurant, and no undercover parking which the Girassol has.

So I would certainly stay at City Hotel when next in Nampula. Close to all amenities, train and bus station etc

Another good option for those on a budget both in Nampula and on Ilha are Ruby Backpackers: www.facebook.com/pages/Ruby-Backpackers/143960899057071
