    The place is spotless, well located, and relaxing. My visit was very short, but enjoyed it thoroughly. Easy to get to the places of interest, restaurants -- which are just a few blocks away, but far enough to have a peaceful and quiet stay.

    I have stayed at Ruby Nampula for 2 weeks each on two different occasions and I can say I had a good experience. It is quite affordable. The staff were quite nice and my room was always cleaned. I recommend the place
