Our Location

We are situated in the heart of the Capital City of Mozambique, with sweeping views of Maputo Bay and the bustling city below from our unique cliff-top setting. Our hotel is the ideal place to explore the history, culture, and vibrancy of Mozambique’s capital city. It also serves as a launch pad to head north where one can explore the various idyllic islands that lie just off the coast.

“Hotel Cardoso Maputo is the ideal base from which to do business, host a conference, explore Mozambique’s colorful history or merely enjoy all the pleasures that come with a stay in Maputo.”
