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...

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.

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
