Liv Inn Guest House was really great
My family and I had an amazing stay. On the night of our arrival, there were some challenges with the number of rooms we had booked, but the manager of the Guest House sorted it out quickly and even upgraded one of our rooms. The staff was really friendly. They even organised us a tour guide by the name of Emmanuel. He was the best and really ensured that we enjoyed our stay. We also got to chill next to the pool playing games as a family. It was truly amazing! I would recommend Liv Inn Guest House.

Best value in Maputo!!
We decided to stay here primarily based on price. Boy were we surprised! Yes the rooms are small (read tiny) BUT - THEY HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED!!!! Staff were super friendly and helpful. You are a bit out of the city - but if you have your own car this is not a issue. Breakfast is basic but very, very good quality. We did have dinner one evening - it was OK - but then again this is not a restaurant this is an excellent budget accommodation venue.

Perfect no frills - great value for money
LivInn is the perfect place to stay if you are just in Maputo for work, you just need to sleep or focus on work, you don't need all the frills of a big hotel. but you want it to be clean, quiet, organized and friendly. Most guest houses are more like hostels, this one is not. The cubicles in which you sleep seem very small but they have been smartly designed and are actually quite comfortable. The common living area is spacious, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is good and the staff and the owner are friendly and helpful. The only challenge is that taxis are a bit pricey if you don't have your own car, but LivInn does get you at least the best rates.

An Oasis away from the Chaos
The owner and the staff were magnificent. The Guest House is hidden away, but once through the gate an oasis opens up. It is relatively quiet, and a pleasant place to stay amongst the hectic turmoil of Maputo.

Friendly and peaceful
The staff are very friendly and the owner is very helpful if you have any Maputo questions. A very pretty location with a little dip pool. If you swim they bring a fresh towel out which was a little touch I liked. Good WiFi and Tv if that’s what you want! It’s convenient for the airport; look out for the maroon wall as there’s no sign!

Model simple Accomodationwithin a freindly Environ
The place is managed by owner in a hands-on style. He is very understanding. For example...I was booked to stay for 2 days...Monay 12th and 13th March 2018. Unfortunately I missed my flight from Nairobi on Monday and this was rescheduled to Tuesday. In the confusion that ensued I did not contact the Guest house for resheduling cos I thought it was too late for that. So this was a case of no a case of "no show". So upon arrival I was received by the caretakerand shown to my room. When I met the.freindly and kind proprietor the following day he said he understood and allowed me to stay for my two nights at no extra cost. Surprised that I was not going to be surcharged for no show, he intimated to me that he travels also and expects others to be similarly understanding under such circumstances. The waiters are very kind and well groomed. I would definitely recommend the place for one seeking a quete, reasonably priced, clean accommondation outside the the husle and bui I would recommend the place for anybody looking for a quete reasonably priced accommondation away from the hasle and basle of the city.

Great place to stay while in Maputo!
I experienced in my few weeks visiting five countries in Southern Africa, that the best option is to stay at a guesthouse, rather than a hotel. And Liv Inn Guest House on the outskirts of Maputo is no exception to that new-found knowledge. Liv Inn provides a very affordable, basic, clean and hospitable accomodation. It is like an oasis near the «waterpark» or «agua marina» two minutes by car from the beach front. A taxi would cost you from 600 - 800 Meticais from the center of the city. Only about 15 minutes drive to the airport. The host and owner, Mr Rui Talaia, is an American ex-pat with Portuguese roots. He is a very friendly, serviceminded and nice person. And he definitely makes you feel like a very welcomed guest. Very safe and secluded place. Liv Inn is indeed good value for the money 😎!

朝食から夕食まで、毎日美味しくいただきました。 野菜もしっかり取れました。 特にsalada de frangoとmeio frangoは味もボリュームも満点で何度も注文してしまいました。 フレンドリーなスタッフの皆さん、お世話になりました。
