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.

At the time of writing I had been in Ouagadougou twice on business & this hotel was the better of the two I had stayed in. Maybe a little overpriced for the quality but the hotel was full so they're obviously getting away with it. Room was basic & clean pretty much the story for the whole hotel. Breakfasts were... More

I stayed there a couple of times and I must say that i have not been impressed by much. The service is usually not very prompt and the food is highly overpriced. There are many other alternatives for lodging in Ouaga, and the Yibi hotel across the street seem like one i will be looking into the next time around.... More

I found this very poor for the price. If it had been a cheap two star hotel I might have thought that they were doing their best. But you pay a lot for these rooms and they are not good - amazingly hard mattrasses, the rooms smell of old smoke and the facilities are really basic. I dont mind an... More

Whoever gave a 4-Star rating to Splendid hotel has done travelers a huge disfavour. For a hotel that price, their customer service is nauseating. There is something wrong with the architecture itself. The AC unit is mounted just across your bed, facing the pillow. So the cold air is aimed directly at your head. I changed from the "old" side...
