Probably the best bet for the business traveler in Yaounde, I have stayed in other places. There were no surprises. There is a nice grocery across the street as well as a few take aways that are accessible with just an little help (hassle) from the folks on the street outside the hotel.

The Hilton Yaoundé is very well located in the city centre - for our visit to a conference this was great. As usual with Hiltons the hotel should be refurbished, but compared to some other Hiltons in Africa it was well maintained and provided good rooms and a good atmosphere, as well as great service. On the price I suggest... More

Stayed for five nights whilst on a business trip, whilst not a bad hotel it is not a good one either and certainly not what you'd expect from Hilton or the prices they charge. The whole place seems very dated and much in need of a total refurbishment. They are currently doing one of the executive floors but the whole... More

Good standing. More privacy for people getting in the room for checking is always good. The BAR entry should be different to the hotel entry if possible. Personnel are wonderful and very engaged to the task. Increase of the security on the elevator is important. Rooms are convivial and enable better rest.

The price is highly excessive regarding the quality of both, hotel and services. 356 €/ night plus 20 € for the breakfast is unbelievable! Although it is an interesting business meeting point for businesses in the city of Yaoundé, I don´t advise to stay at the hotel for spending the night, unless you get a special agreement for a reasonable...

Was expecting more after several positive reviews and reports of "renovations". Even for central African standards, the Hilton Yaoundé is not really fresh anymore.The overall impression is rather of it going "downhill", like all of the country, I'm afraid. The outside facades are that of a dump, with the oldest Hilton logo I've seen in a long time. Lobby and... More

Second time staying at the Hilton in Yaounde. The rooms are large and spacious with nice bathrooms. My room this time around had small insects that seemed to love my computer and were rather annoying. The internet is rather slow in the room and you have to purchase vouchers to access the internet. The breakfast buffet is wonderful but rather... More

I was told that only luxury rooms were available while it was plenty of free standard rooms which rate was the half!! At reception the staff too much insisted in proposing very expensive services. The hotel is extremely expensive for the service they provide. Internet very slow good breakfast

I recently spent several nights at the Hilton in Yaounde, Cameroon. For a 5-star hotel, I was disappointed with the slow speed of the internet and in the fact that it was treated as a rare commodity! One had to ask everyday for a new internet access code. What is more, it was only available in the reception lobby. This... More

The Hilton is supposedly the best hotel in Yaounde, but we had a very disappointing experience at the Hilton. Where to begin... The rooms were quite dirty. I cleaned my bathroom floor to get rid of the hairs. The water was rusty, and one night a pipe burst, so we were without tap water for many hours. The front desk... More
