São Tomé stopover
The hotel was a great spot to go to after a late arrival, just minutes from the airport and the driver waited for us right at the entrance. The breakfast was great with respect to the amazing fresh fruit. Hot dishes were sparse, but the coffee and great bread made up for it

Nice place but fix the internet connection problem
Hotel Praia is a nice hotel with very friendly staff. I apreciated the room upgrade and the pick up from the airport. I would go back there if only they can sort out their Wi-Fi. It was quite bad during my stay. It was difficult to receive stable connection while in the room

Overall experience was great. Loved the ambience
Everything about the property is good except for the shower cubicle and the food prices

6/10 Good

Necessary to make an allowance of up to half an hour for the check out process; just writing a receipt for the hotel bill which was already paid previously took a straight 15 minutes with endless calculations on the calculator, just to come up with the cost already paid the day before. Quaint, but takes time....as does the airport check-in process which is even more arduous but that has nothing to do with the hotel, but allow at least and hour to go through the airport check-in process, and that was arriving two and half hours before departure

L’hôtel de bon standing, son restaurant àDécouvrir
Chambres vastes avec plafond haut, d’un bon standing, mobilier colonial sombre mais plaisant, la chambre restait fraîche même sans clim ( saison sèche toutefois donc à voir en saison chaude). Personnel très avenant et parlant plusieurs langues. C’est un hôtel vaste avec de nombreux bâtiments sur un parc en retrait de la route et avec une magnifique piscine presque de format olympique. Calme aussi avec une bonne insonorisation des chambres. Le lit avait un soutien ferme et de très bonne qualité. L’emplacement n’est pas mal juste à 2 mn de l’aéroport et en face d’une belle plage de sable. Le pressing un peu cher peut être mais soigné donc rien à redire. Le restaurant est désert mais j’y ai mangé mieux que partout ailleurs dans l’île ( mieux qu’à PapaFigo la référence locale qui a été ma cantine sinon pendant longtemps) : carpaccio de poisson local délicieux et ceviche de crevette parfait au restaurant du Praia. Le chef est un des meilleurs de l’île je devine mais les prix un peu hauts et le service indolent ( très gentils comme partout dans l’île ils en oublient pourtant de demander quelle boisson on souhaite) dissuade la clientèle : dommage. Et aussi aucun problème de digestion ensuite donc hygiène impeccable. Les petits déjeuners étaient très bien et assez variés : aubergines frites excellentes et jus de papaye frais ou d’ananas frais. Des sculptures en bois locales et des peintures plaisantes ( en tout cas celle de ma chambre voir photo) Donc une très bonne adresse.

Hôtel calme et agréable, personnel très accueillant et chaleureux. Il n'y a pas de service permettant de payer par carte bancaire européenne, ce qui est la seule chose manquante dans ce bel hôtel.

Mediano
Lugar agradável, Bom Pequeno Almoço, as restantes refeições tem muito pouca variedade, peca pela falta de Empregados e pela demora na preparação das refeições. Piscina muito agradável
