Azalai is a smaller African chain of 4- and 5-star business hotels in major cities. Azalai Bissau is by far the best hotel in Bissau and comparable with an average Hilton hotel. The staff are kind and some of them speaks English. Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s least traveled countries and I didn’t expect much, but it was a pleasant experience with a beautiful country side and easy border crossing.
I stayed in a small single room which was comfortable and with everything you need inclduing complimentary wireless internet access. The hotel has a little resort feeling due to several buildings within the propertys ground and does not feel like your typical busienss hotel. I love visiting little known destinations and Azalai Bissau was part of that adventure. Business facilities are up to a good standard while a gym might be a good addition to the hotel. The stay ended with a good breakfast and travelers should have no concerns staying here. Great security and a comfortable place I can highly recommend as it’s by far the best Bissau has to offer.
My opinion: Good experience.
