Sayed 2 nights at this hotel. 5 mins from the airport. Room 403 facing the entrance. Check in. Staff were very helpfull as were the rest of the staff. English was spoken well by most of the staff and had no issues asking questions. Food. Dinner was as i ordered and perfectly acceptable and i have no complaints. Breakfast was also acceptable. Room. Was ok and clean with tea and coffee available. Shower pressure was a little low but still able to use. Free Wifi available and was ok if a touch slow. Large double bed was comfotable and i slept well. TV was mostly French and local channels but had 2 English speaking news channels Location. 5 mins from the airport. Some noise during the day from aircraft landing but nothing that bothered me. Construction directly opposite but again no issues and i wasnt disturbed. I was happy with my stay and would stay again without issue. Ideal for anyone needing to close to the airport if not wanting to go into town. Thanks for a nice stay 👍

Seems most of my comments appear in the other reviews, rooms clean, bed comfortable, water pressure insufficient, lukewarm shower. Air con unit is right over bed so chilly but extra duvets available in wardrobe. Not enough power outlets to charge devices and have table lamp on at the same time. Wi fi worked ok but you do need to go and get a new password annoyingly often. Staff pleasant but breakfast was pretty basic and I was not tempted to eat in the evening. Access road has potholes you could park in. Location is close to the airport.

This Hotel is a rundown place with very poor management and service. The place needs maintenance and repairing all over. Surrounded in a construction area with moody and gravel road access. Full with mosquitoes all over the place. One of the most noisiest place I have experienced in the last decade of travelling. Advertised as a 3* but real experience is down to a maximum of 2* standard. Food and Breakfast very poor but expensive. Permanent Internet and power failure. Aircon problems. Some staff try very hard but some of the others are quite unprofessional, inattentive, rude and busy playing games and video on there private phones The food is far overpriced and not up to any standard, no choices or international dishes. But there are some good and normal priced restaurants in the area. My company placed me here for a couple of weeks otherwise I would have chosen a far better deal in one of the nearby Hotels.

This property is on a serious decline since the departure of the resident manager Frederic. Firstly the positives - The reception staff are, in a word, outstanding. Within the limits of what they are allowed to do, one could not ask for a better group. In large part this is because of the leadership of the front manager, Ibrahim. - The housekeeping staff do a superb job keeping the guest rooms in first class cleanliness and order. - The laundry is great. Clothes come back laundered in an entirely professional manner - The rooms are entirely functional, although the placement of the air conditioner is such that it blows cold air directly over the bed Secondly the negatives - The location of the hotel is a real issue. The entrance rods are nothing short of ruts. Complicating, is the fact that the hotel is under the airport departure flight path. The noise if the departing aircraft any time day or night. - The wireless is at best, sporadic. One is obliged to go to the front desk often and receive a new code, Even when it is working the intern is sporadic in speed and subject to frequent drops - The dining room/food service continues to deteriorate. On examination the chairs are showing signs of age/wear and are in serious need of replacement. Paint is noticeably peeling off of some of the walls. At breakfast the choices become less and less. When the dining opens for breakfast it is not uncommon to find day old breads. The prices are completely out of line. This is probably because of the fact that there are no other food sources within convenient walking difference. The restaurant will serve a half portion of a meal, but one still has to pay full price. Do not bother asking for a diet soft drink; none are available and there is to obtain the same (Frederic always was able to get diet soft drinks)..The attitude of some of the dining room staff needs some serious positive adjustment. Most times, particularly in the evening the television in the eating area is tuned to a station that is music videos of marginal quality with the sound far too loud for normal people. The impression is that the television is for the entertainment of the staff, -The noise proofing in the guest rooms is inadequate, Wen a desk chair is moved on a floor above the noise is obvious in the room below. Simple felt pieces on the bottom of the chair legs would in large part remedy the same. Even though the hotel rarely operates at rarely more than 50% occupancy it is impossible to get something as simple as a seci0nd desk lamp. The excuse given to such a request is that the 'owner' has said what equipment must be in all of the rooms at all times and it is impossible to take an item from an unused room.

There is a great deal to be said about this property and most of it good. The building itself is fairly new and most importantly for this part of the world is clean – no very clean. By and large everything in the hotel works. The rooms are spotless and, save and except for perhaps the air-conditioning units being placed so that they are directly over the beds everything else is fine. The refrigerators in the rooms work well, the Internet works well, and the flatscreen televisions provide a wide variation of programs to watch. Particular mention should be given to the housekeeping staff keep the guestrooms spotless every day and to the To look after the laundry is taken away every morning and brought back cleaned folded and package every evening. As far as staff goes the front desk staff are intended polite and knowledgeable. The general manager is always there and like his front staff make a point of knowing the names of guests and continue to inquire almost on a daily basis as to whether anything else can be done to make their stay pleasant. One is left with the impression that these are genuine requests and are not done on a perfunctory basis. The restaurant dining room is really quite good. While the daily menu does change their stalwarts that are permanent on the menu and a really quite good. The pastas are good, and the hamburgers are probably as good as one could find anywhere. What is really outstanding is the fact that they had chef is always willing to try to make something at particular request client and he and his sous chef are a remarkable team. However not all is well in Camelot. The hotel advertises a fitness center however all of the machines in the same broken. Hot water is never available in the guestrooms at best it will be one or two levels above lukewarm and the water pressure is really never consistent. While the front of the hotel has a series of balconies the rear of the hotel and the guestrooms windows are mere four or five feet away from a blank wall. The noise deafening within the hotel is insufficient; you hear the scraping of chairs from the floor above and what is even worse if you hear the noise of human functions from the bathroom in the room directly above. The physical location of this property borders on being terrible. In front of the hotel is a construction site that seems to have been going on since time immemorial. The roads into the property are terrible. All of the above being said if one weighs the positives as against the negatives the positives clearly win. If asked what I stay at this property again the answer is a resounding ‘YES’

Stayed here on business and like a similar review if it were not for the employer booking and paying the bills I certainly wouldn't have got out of the taxi from the airport. After bouncing down muddy tracks around the back passage ways for a while I was actually beginning to get concerned where we were going. The reception was very dark. the hotel clerk didn't seem too keen to see me arrive in the early hours, but showed me up to my room which turned out to be surprisingly quite good. It was very clean and presentable. Not too impressed to find a packet of profolactives on the bedside table and Very adult channels on the room TV. Would have been very awkward if you turn up with family. On the whole not somewhere I would return to if I can help it.

Was here for two nights on business. If it was not my employer putting me here due to price I would never stay here. The hotel is literally located in the middle of the junk yard. There's no concrete road to get there. The room is spacy but worn out. Toilet is noisy, smelly, and shower water is weak. Internet wifi while free is awfully slow to the point that it is useless. Basic breakfast. Staff is friendly enough but that is not enough to rate this hotel anything better than 2 stars. If you can, don't stay here. It's far from everything and is totally not worth it.

Carte de credit a partir de 45000 fcfa ..... pour quelle obscure raison on se le demande. Quartie peu engageant entoure de constructions anarchiques. sinon sejour correct. petit dejeuner moyen. prix moyens

Comme beaucoup d'hôtels en Afrique, c'est trop cher pour ce que c'est. La propreté n'est pas le point fort, il n'y a qu'à voir l'état des joints de la douche 😠et la pression d'eau est faible voir très faible. L'accès est difficile et un 4x4 peut être nécessaire... Le petit déjeuner est correct mais coûte 8000FCFA ! WiFi correct.

Nous avons passé juste une nuit, mais c'était inoubliable, la chambre était spacieuse, propre, avec des couleurs chaudes. le personnel professionnel, l'accueil chaleureux, seul hic la vue qui donne sur des chantiers et les bruits de la circulation de la route de l'aéroport toute proche.
