This is an average hotel, fairly clean, but the rooms are quite stark and over-priced. Everything at the bar is also overpriced. It is centrally located, which is convenient if you want to be near the grand marche, but on the other hand that means there's a lot of hustle and bustle right outside the hotel, which isn't very relaxing....

I and a colleague visited les palmiers in December for some official work. I thought that not knowing French would be a big set back, but the hotel staff was very helpful and made extra effort to understand what I wanted to communicate and tried to help in whichever way possible. The staff is extremely polite and friendly. The hotel... More

I visited this hotel with my family. It is a nice little place to stay. All the people working here have been very nice to us. The rooms are not perfect but usefull and clean. Our aircondition worked well. WiFi connection after finding a workaround (fixed IP-adress instead of automatic) was most times stable too and also available at our... More

Hotel Les Palmiers is on a quiet street just off the main market in Ouaga. Situation perfect. There is a garden, a pool and the rooms ranged around. Our room was spacious, clean, had tiled floors, AC, ceiling fan and a very good shower. Service was good (laundry done the same day) and staff helpful and friendly. There is a... More

Located in a lush garden. Room was spacy, but the pillows were very hard. We ordered a taxi via the hotel and the taxi was there when we arrived at the airport. In the bathroom was only soap, so bring your shampoo. Free wifi and airco worked fine. ATM's around the corner. Centrally located. Our room was located next to... More

In that this is the only hotel in Ouagadougou in which we're staying, it's hard to compare. However, relative to what we see as we drive around the city, this is a most comfortable Oasis. We have to agree that the staff is most friendly & helpful.. Efficient as well in that a load of laundry that we turned in... More

Wow! Took some time booking this place due to translation problems and time differences, but it was well worth it. This was our second time to Burkina Faso and this hotel made the difference. The staff went out of its way to help us. On leaving the internet visa machine was down so we had to go to the bank... More

I just stayed one night in this hotel, but will definitely come back. The garden with restaurant, bar and (small) swimming pool are an oasis in Ouaga. I had a room next to the reception which was large and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. The bar serves cold beers and the staff is extremely friendly... More

The hotel has a pleasant garden and small pool in the center of dusty Ouagadougou. Our room had good AC, refrigerator and a mosquito net (NEEDED). The gardens of the hotel are a haven for insects and the hotel does not spray the common outside areas. You will need your bug spray to have a drink or eat in restaurant.... More

I have stayed on business in many small hotels in and around Africa! Some are good, some are average and some are poor! Seldom do I stay in a place I would classify as superb! This hotel comfortably falls into that category! It is small but what it might lose in size it makes up for in service, quality and... More
