I stayed in this hotel for two nights and my stay was pleasant. The room is very spacious for one person and the room service from the hotel's restaurant is great too. It only takes 20-30 minutes for the food to be ready and it's always fresh. One thing that I didn't like is the breakfast buffet. Pretty pricey for... More

The staff at the front office were polite. Needed to get some currency exchanged pretty late and they helped organize it (and at normal rates). Not sure how it would be if you don't speak French, but my experience was good. Try to take a street facing room, there is nothing to see I guess if you take the pool... More

Nice and clean rooms, very spacious. Breakfast served was stale, seemed be to leftovers of the previous day. Pool was fantastic. Room service was prompt. Close to some good shopping and good eateries. Outside the hotel, cramped for space and parking.

The location is bang in the middle of city centre with taxis available to take you anywhere in the city. The Cappuccino restaurant is right opposite and offers a varied menu and good quality food. One does have to always pay in advance. The rooms were cleaned daily and basic toiletries were provided. However, the hot water supply is very... More

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 However the place is too expensive, outdated rooms, expensive restaurant.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.
