This is nothing like the Meridien you knew elsewhere. The room is old, the bathroom is old, water tap came out yellow at first, broken shower head etc... The only thing ok is the bed, clean and comfortable. Oh and the AC works, albeit a bit noisy. The TV has few international channels. Breakfast is poor, but the place for... More

This hotel is awful. That's it. The Kempinski is best. The Residence is 2nd best. The Novotel is third best. Out of 4, somehow this is 5th. Do not stay here. Terrible management, terrible rooms (that reek), gross food that will make you sick. "But, there is plenty of availability!" There is a reason. Dirt water from the shower (if... More

Nice hotel with different solutions. Not always perfect but service and employees are really nice and gentle. Swimming pool adapts to enjoy weekends good food and rich breakfast. What more in Ndjamena?

Sure, the Hotel Chari (former Meridien) may not pull out all of the whistles and stops of a Kempinski: the fixtures are old and the hotel is worn out, but where else can you watch the sun set along the Chari river while the egrets and other birds fly gracefully in the sky, replaced hours later by flocks of fruit...

Stayed for a week at the hotel. The room was furnished to an acceptable standard. The bathroom was clean with towels and toiletries replaced daily. The aircon worked but was rather noisy. The bed was comfortable. Had satellite TV good choice of channels. The buffet breakfast had a good selection and the dinner had a good choice. The staff were... More

The hotel is on the River Chari. Once you've said that you've pretty much said it all. The hotel last received a makeover perhaps when it was built, and that was a long time ago. The Internet works fitfully and when I went to check out, the reception clerk claimed that his credit card machine wasn't working and that I... More

- Room Service you are luck to get. - Restaurant Service very slow. - Phone call from restaurant at 5am in the morning. - No Internet in the room. - Over priced. - Keep tabs on minibar, they cheat you on it. + Bed is good and TV.

Keep your receipts When I went to check out of this otherwise goodish hotel, the desk could not find any record of a deposit. I retrieved a copy of the slip issued on arrival, and they were suitably apologetic. The Meridien is one of three respectable hotels in town; the others are the Kempinski (which is also wobbly on record... More

Just stayed here for several days with mixed feelings. The beds are wonderful and overall it is clean but it just does not seem to be well maintained. for example the light switches were filthy and look like they had never been wiped down, the toilet broke and it took three calls to get it fixed, breakfast was ordered for...

Stayed here for one night en route to a work camp in Southern Chad. It's basic. Bed was comfortable enough and air conditioning worked. Both important here. Rooms are sparse but clean. Given your options are limited (I understand the Kempinski is probably the best Hotel in town) this Hotel is OK. There was a swimming pool, but I did... More
