    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Bata

    Hotel Finisterre San Pedro

    Situated behind the Chinese hotel under construction, this Senegalese-owned hotel is bright, clean and well furnished. Some rooms have a bathtub as well as a shower. The cheapest rooms share a bathroom and the largest have fridges. The friendly family also owns the Restaurant Naby next door.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Bata

    Aparthotel Plaza

    Even the standard rooms here are enormous, with a lounge area and good bathroom. It's all dark wood with leather armchairs. There are larger apartments for longer stays, including the Presidential suite at CFA400,000. There are good deals to be had over weekends. The bar is on the ground floor, and the restaurant on the 1st floor (mains from CFA9000).

  • Lodging in Moka

    Hotel Moca

    Large, elegant hotel seemingly in the middle of nowhere, but close to the president's palace so provides plenty of room for overspill from the palace. It is rather block-like from the outside, but rooms are colourful, well furnished and comfortable. There's a disco, a covered swimming pool and a massage room in addition to the large restaurant.

  • Lodging in Isla Corisco

    Complejo Turistico Las Islas de Corisco

    Currently this is the only place to stay on Corisco and it is in a perfect spot. Rooms have air-con and a fridge though the electricity is turned off at night. Naturally enough, the restaurant specialises in fish, and there's a bar overlooking the sea.

  • Lodging in Malabo

    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.

  • Lodging in Bata

    Hotel Carmen

    While the rooms are fairly plain here, there is a lovely pool by the sea, surrounded by thatched cabanas. There's a restaurant and bar, too. The hotel is on the airport road north of town.

  • Lodging in Bata

    Hotel Elik Melen

    Not a lot works at this hotel: bedside lights, room fridge, restaurant. But staff are friendly and so desperate for guests that you'll immediately be offered discounts on accommodation and food (if they are serving it). It's well located in the centre of town. Rooms are spacious and stylish, some with balconies, though a few cockroaches might join the party.

  • Lodging in Malabo

    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.

  • Lodging in Luba

    Hotel Nautico Luba

    This is the only place to stay and to eat in town. Rooms are plain but comfortable enough. The restaurant is enormous and overlooks the small port. It serves good fresh fish, from CFA4000 for a main dish.

  • Lodging in Malabo

    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.

  • Lodging in Mbini

    Complejo Turistico El Amanecer

    This complex has a range of rooms: pick one where most things work. Some overlook a destroyed swimming pool, a haven for mosquitoes. Air-con units are old-style and noisy. Rickety thatched cabanas overlook the sea, and the lawn is strewn with cigarette butts and bottle tops. The thatched bar is quite pleasant, though. Ask for a discount during the week.

    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.
