Clearly, Novotel company is letting this property slide as they are building a new hotel in Ndjamena. I don't ask for much when getting to faraway African cities, ,but when you pay over $200 a night, it's fair to expect the advertised "free internet" - we had 24 hours where the hotel didn't have any of the "coupons" required to...

Upon arrival at the airport of N'Djamena, I had a confirmed shuttle-service to the Hotel: It was not there. No apologies, nothing. Checking in my room: The sink in the bathroom was so worn-out/dirty that you didn't dare to wash out your shaving brush and the air conditioning, although it was in good order, had no remote control to regulate...

I cannot even begin to fathom why accor still lets this hotel sit in their chain. I do understand the relativity at play when it comes to choosing hotels in N'djamena but honestly, when you pay close to $ 300 for a room, you expect at least, a tidy room, clean sheets, a duvet, working air-conditioning, internet etc. i can...

The restaurant is very shabby and needs a new carpet. food is mediocre, no fresh juice (in africa !!!!!). The personnal behind the bars and in restos are nice but the real problem lays with the staff at the desk who are... More

This hotel should be urgently renovated. Positive points: - Huge garden, with very nice pool Negative points: - Very limited choice of food (buffet in the inside restaurant, and mostly snacks on the terrace) - Very noisy when planes land and take off (hotel is 5 minutes drive from the airport). - Very bad wifi in the reception and rooms...

I just stayed one night, so maybe I didn't get the full experience, but I honestly don't understand all the bad reviews. Yes, it's not dernier cri. But it has a nice old Africa atmosphere. The rooms are big, my bed wasn't so bad. Bathroom fixtures a bit cheap, but everything worked fine. Wifi worked for me but all I... More

I've ever stayed in!! Reception is modern and quite welcoming, but it is when you get to the bedroom is goes rapidly downhill!! I thought being a Novotel is would be of a high standard My room was very basic, paint coming off wall, Aircon working but not blowing cold air this meant for a sweaty, uncomfortable night sleep, also...

Okay, this is Chad, but is this really a Novotel? When you leave the misleadingly impressive reception area through a side-door that takes you out of the main building, and drag your suitcase up the clanging metal steps to your room, it looks like you have gone through a wormhole in time and checked into a 1960s motel. Everything in... More

This hotel is not shabby, not tired but exhausted. Even in a place like N'djamena surely it must be possible to maintain a hotel property a bit better, especially with a rack rate of almost $300! My room was passably clean but acceptable on no other count. The airconditioner was very noisy, the bed linen threadbare and there was even... More
