Lovely well appointed guest house with first-class service. Large rooms, clean, TV lounge (none in the rooms) with an excellent breakfast included, what more can you ask ... Price a bit stiff for a guest house, but considering the alternatives in Tete good value for money. Other reviews are spot on with their praise of this establishment, although when I...

Tete is not your usual tourist destination. I am here for work in the development sector and spending 5 days at the Villa Hapsburg. The heat in Tete is very hard to cope with: I am in the field for up to 10 hours per day and coming "home" to Villa Hapsburg has been my saving grace. Location is lovely,...

Arriving in Tete, the hottest city in Mozambique (both in terms of temperature and speed of development), the average non-African is invariably a bit exhausted - by the countless potholes when coming from Malawi, by the border when coming from Zim, and so on. For those who are looking for a refuge from sun, crowds, dust, there is the Villa...
