Avenida Comandante Valódia known as Bairro dos Combatentes is a residential area neighborhood in Luanda's central municipality of Sambizanga in Luanda province of Angola, is centered on a busy interchange. It has a length of 1.61 km ² and about 144,000 inhabitants and is split in both ways, it is bordered to the west by Kinaxixi, on the north by Marçal, in the east by São Paulo, south by Avenida Brasil.

The neighborhood is known for its office and residential buildings, is home to the famous Hotel Tròpico, the renowned 147 public school and the now defunct Feira Ngoma. According to Angolan historian Paulo Azevedo, the name of the neighborhood was given by the Angolan government in honour of a lieutenant in the Angolan army named Valódia, one of the prominent generals during the Angolan War of Independence. Named Bairro dos Combatantes da Primeira Guerra Mundial, the neighborhood was founded by the Portuguese government in 1970 during the colonial period to support the families of the Portuguese colonial army during the Angolan War of Independence.
When Angola regained independence from Portugal in 1975, it was renamed, the population at the time comprised only people of Caucasian race with only a handful of people of different races that inhabited this residential area. As the war for independence started to reach its end, fearing reprisal from the native population, the Portuguese contingent started to flee and only 5% remained of the total population with Portuguese ancestry. After a redevelopment in the late 1980s, Avenida Comandante Valòdia became one of the busiest parts of the Sambizanga municipality. Just across Kinaxixi in downtown Avenida Comandante Valódia, is located the famous Tròpico Hotel. Funded in 1997 the hotel has been a source of income for the area attracting an estimated 1.1 million people from expats from around the world as well as locals searching for a place to stay in Luanda. The area is home to many restaurants and business offices and banks who contribute to national wealth of Angola.
