    Magno Suites

    Malabo's only boutique hotel, this is a superb choice in the upmarket suburb of Paraíso. It has swish modern decor, king-size beds and an excellent restaurant. An airport shuttle service is offered free of charge. Visa and MasterCard credit cards are accepted. Once called Mango Suites, the name had to be changed after a dispute with the clothing chain of the same name.

    Apart-Hotel Impala

    Don't be put off by the tacky lobby, this place gets better upstairs, and there's a lift. The rooms are very comfortable and have tiny balconies, a fridge and good bathrooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. Be choosy about which room you take: some look out directly onto the Pizza Place terrace next door, and could be noisy. In addition to the rooms, there are also pleasant, spacious apartments that have a mini kitchen with hotplate and fridge, and large, well-appointed bathrooms (single/double CFA75,000/90,000).

    Hotel Bahia 2

    The original version of this brand-new hotel used to be situated at the port in central Malabo, but it has relocated to this modern building in the suburb of Caracolas off the airport road. Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable, and staff are pleasant. It all seems eerily empty, though. The restaurant serves mains from CFA9000.

    Hotel Yoly & Hermanos

    Hotel Yoly is a good midrange hotel: the rooms are pleasant and have a fridge, and bathrooms are large. Wi-fi only works in the large, wood-panelled lobby. The location is very good for exploring the old part of the city.

    Hotel Stella

    A conveniently ocated hotel, the Stella could do with brightening up. The rooms are average and have a fridge; some benefit from a balcony. The bathrooms are a bit smelly. Unusually, there is no wi-fi provided. It's overpriced for what you get, but there are not many midrange options in Malabo. It's best to find somewhere else to eat.

    Hostal Morenita

    Rather dark and depressing rooms here, but the Morenita is in a good central location. All rooms have a fridge, too. The bathrooms could do with some modernising.

    Internet Hostal

    One of the cheapest options in town, this hotel has large, quiet rooms and is in an excellent location. However, the bathrooms are rather grubby, shower-over-the-toilet affairs. The owner only speaks Chinese so making a reservation in advance is difficult.
