Stayed 3 weeks in May 2012. Bed was comfortable, but otherwise the Silmande is old and tired. The staff are friendly, and do what they can. One of the two elevators did not work for over 2 weeks. The pool was nice but there were not enough lounge chairs and many were broken (rusted in position). Laundy seriously overpriced ($7... More

They never answer my request for airport pick up. We were well received at the hotel when we arrived and they did everything to make our stay confortable.

I passed through the hotel twice in early December. On both occasions, check out took over 40 minutes as the staff scrambled to colate the bill...only to run out of printer paper when printing the invoice. The rooms, whilst old, were clean and the internet was working and operated at a reasonable speed. The food at the downstairs restuarant was... More

Hotel Le Silmande is a good representation of what can be expected in Ouagadougou for over 100 USD room. Its particularity is to be located next to a dam and the largest park of the city. A large swimming pool and tennis court are available. Rooms are old, poorly furnished and with a bad humidity smell. The restaurant is average,... More

Safe location with nice rooms. Really appreciate the personalized attention of the GM - (note: I do speak French). The in-hotel services and food are a bit pricey, but on par for high-quality hotels in Africa.

Dirty bath room. Intermitten power and internet....... Now for the good part. I don't write reviews but wow... I had been here 3... More

I stayed here for five nights. At about $110 USD per night, this hotel is a reasonably priced solution for business travelers, but you better keep your expectations low. The "free internet" worked about 30% of the time; there was no hot water on two mornings; during an area power cut, the backup generator only lit one light in the... More

I stayed two nights in February 2009 at the Silmande with my group of 15 persons. The rooms we were assigned were all clean, well appointed but not luxurious. I travel extensively in west Africa and do not expect luxury in this part of the world. The front office staff was helpful; the restaurant staff was courteous and responsive, especially... More
