The hotel reception all the staff were difficult to get a long with, demanding payment first. They dont trust you. So you need to pay first. Break fast is charges at 6000 CFA its expensive. Better to go the Cappuccino Restaurant opposite the hotel.Its very good u can enjoy lot of varieties of food.

This hotel is a shell of what it could be imagined to have been in its heyday. Its across the street from a bar that gets super noisy, unless you are there of course :)! The rooms are barely passable and the service desk attendants could barely care once your payment is made. To be fair, there are limited choices... More

The hotel is conveniently located with several shops, banks and restaurants close by. However the place is too expensive, outdated rooms, expensive restaurant. The only pro is the pool and the location. On credit cards they charge additional commissions. I would opt for a smaller B&B type of place next time and save money.

I have been visiting Splendid since 2005 or so and have seen it decline remarkably. It used to be one of the better hotels and good value for money hotel. But, it is very poorly maintained and there is hardly any improvement that one can appreciate. The rooms are spacious but bathrooms are very poorly maintained. Most of the water... More

Positives - Location is the best part of this hotel. Close to airport and at the heart of Oauga. Breakfast is 2nd best part, its quite good, wide and filling. Negatives - Tiny Lobby. Unkempt corridor, rooms narrow, bathroom half-clean.

This is the first time that I visit West Afurica. In order to suffering Malaria, I wanted to choose a clean Hotel. Since It was close to the airport and expensive, I chose this hotel . However, the room was narrow and was not cleanI, I was disappointed. And there is no staff who speak English. Only within the case... More

Stayed there for 4 days in mid-late February 2014 on business. Hotel is clean but has not been redecorated since I don't know when (probably early 80's). One must keep in mind that Burkina Faso is a poor country, and must not expect the same level of quality / service as one would find even in Cameroon or East Africa.... More

Beware, while out at dinner, our room was entered with a passkey, and a master key was used to empty our room safe of all our cash and passports. Front desk and management denied the robbery, and claimed we "forgot where we put" our things. Finally, they offered that they could have helped more if we did not report to... More

The bellhop stole $5000 and a passport out of a locked safe and I suspect that the management was in cahoots because the manager was no help. We moved to Hotel Ricardo which if you plan to visit Ouaga, I recommend by all means.
