Where to stay in Maputo

Budget-friendly accommodations remain scarce in Maputo. Unless you choose a backpacker-style hostel, expect to pay steep prices even for mid-range lodgings. The largest cluster of accommodations can be found near the Avenida 24 Julho, a walking distance from the main train station, or around the waterfront promenade Avenida Marginal. Portuguese-style guesthouses and business hotels offer comfortable rooms with basic amenities, while chain establishments and boutique hotels situated in grandiose colonial-era buildings provide more luxury and additional services.
