not much to say. Not good but no alternative as it was next to my job. I have seen worse, but that's about how positive I could be. Nice view though. and not too far from the center. Lifts often out of order. no safe in the room.

In the room, the shower head was broken with the pieces left on the tub. The AC hardly blew any air at all. The inside door lock was broken. The curtains were filthy. The furniture was sparse. A big old tv sat on the table as though the room was used for the storage of old broken equipment. The mattress... More

My room was clean and comfortable on the pool side. Hotel staff were serviceable and generally pleasant to deal with. Nice pool and bar. The only dark spot is the restaurant. The food is ok if overpriced, particularly the breakfast buffet, which is a particularly sad sight. Time between ordering and being served is well over 1 hour at diner... More

Staff unprofessional and indifferent, stealing change in the bar, not even having anything but 2 bottles of whiskey there - adsk for a fruit juice and pray to get something in 1 hour, and even that you can only imagine where it came from, probably street vendor. cockroaches all over the place. carpets in the corridors smell like rotten since...

Expensive, not clean, not even a complimentary bottle of water to drink, tv out of order, water leak on the 70's a/c, room service very very long, bad and pricy.... there are still not a lot of options in Yaounde, but this one is not cheap, avoid...

Please do not waste your money as I did - the price was hefty and standards were wanting right from check-in. Staff are just indifferent, you cannot find any manager(if any) and I had to curse myself for booking here. As a Guinness Record, the check-in was about an hour in the late night as the reception person said there... More

I found some of the hotel staff a bit rude and discourteous. There wasn't wifi in my room which was itself generally clean and the sheets were just ok (not the bright white am used to). Breakfast was good. For short business stays, I'd say this is just ok.

There exist just one better option which is Hilton; so, if you are traveling to Yaoundé it is simple to think: what do I need from a hotel? If you are not looking for superfluous luxury, this is a good option. Notice that their web page has been hacked (somebody might solve that or build a new one) and also... More

The Hilton will be the only thing nicer in Yaounde than the Franco--but you will no doubt pay 3 times as much. Considered a '4 star' hotel as far as Cameroon hotel ratings go. Nice pool. Nice restaurant. Pretty nice staff. Someone else paid for my room, so I cant say how much it was. Free wifi in the lobby... More
