The best analogy for this hotel to Westerners is that it is similar to a very run down Motel 6. The best thing about this hotel is its location. Given the instability of Chad, you are about a kilometer from the airport and can cross the adjacent river to the hotel to Cameroon on the other side. I went through... More

I stayed several days on Novotel for work and even though the hotel inside is quite dark, old and not very taken care of, the staff is welcoming and the pool is amazing. For the lack of options in N'Djamena I think it's quite acceptable. The food makes it all worth it. The meals on the pool bar are good,... More

Novotel has been through three (3) managers since I first used this hotel. And no matter how many times you voice your complaint on this site or directly to the hotel manager.. NOTHING CHANGES. Internet service is up and down on a regular basis, Breakfast is the same. Personal hygiene of the staff is substandard. For example, order a beer... More

I have visited Ndjamena for work 4 times over the past 4years. I must say that improvement in this city is coming but at a snail-pace much like this local Novotel chain. Still the same old beddings which should be replaced, hopefully soon. To be fair, the bed linens are kept clean and replaced regularly, but disenfectant could come handy... More

We have used the pool and restaurant several times. Its a good place in the city to take a break. Its not inexpensive at $30 a person, but that does include a good meal and all day use of the pool. The grounds are clean, there is good security and they have nice recliners and umbrellas all around the pool.

Had small lizards in my room. Wifi was okay but not great. Food was pretty bad. And it was really expensive. But this is Chad. Compared to others I stayed in in Chad, it's a palace. If you are on an unlimited expense account it's worth it. But I won't stay there again.

Check-in is simple as is check-out. The rooms are basic but meet the requirements needed by any traveller except for internet access which was non existent. Room was spacious and fairly clean. The toiletries were the highlight, good soap, shampoo and bodywash. Suggest to ask for more than one bottle of water as that is all that is left for... More

I stayed in Novotel N'Djamena during a business trip and had a very good experience. The rooms where clean as where the other facilities. I got quite a nasty food poisoning and the management of the hotel took wonderful care of my colleague and I.
