Libyan hotel in Guinea-Bissau reopens in January 2016

16 December 2015

The Ledger Plaza Hotel Bissau, a formerly the Líbia Hotel, reopens its doors in January 2016 following extensive repairs, said Monday in Bissau the Director of Human Resources, Nozolino Mendonça.

The hotel, formerly known as Hotel Sheraton, later Hoti Bissau Hotel and finally as Líbia Hotel, was acquired from the Guinean state in June 2004 by the Libyan African Investment Authority (Laico).

The hotel, which originally opened in 1990, closed eight years later due to a political-military conflict that destroyed many of its facilities.

The Ledger Plaza Hotel Bissau has 116 rooms, 18 suites, two of which are presidential, two conference rooms, a swimming pool, night club, gym and a restaurant, Nozolino Mendonça told Macauhub.

In addition to this hotel, the Libyan African Investment Authority owns 11 hotels in Africa, in Gambia, Tunisia, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Tanzania, Central African Republic and Republic of Congo (Brazzaville). (macauhub/GW)
