I stayed here in early April. First the pluses. 1). The rooms are a very good size. Generous sized beds and comfortable space 2). The pool area is nice and there's a good sized gym adjacent to it. The restaurant/lounge area is big and has privacy to relax in. Now the bad (the stuff that drove me out of there).... More

Although there has been renovations to the rooms and the general appearance. The Royal Riviera offers little for paying guests. It appears to be lebanese sports club. With Lebanese Nationals and their families visiting on a daily basis. the wek-ends are hectic and noisy as the hotel is inundated with outsiders to use the facilities. Thus the paying guest is...

Previous terrible reviews are shocking but I hope this means management took feedback seriously. I have only great things to say about this place. I have been here four days and have 3 weeks to go but feel compelled to share my good experiences. Breakfast with lots of variety - damn good omelettes made to order. Variety of fruits (mango,...

The rooms are good. But in Africa, nothing is economical by the quality of vs the price. The prices are always on higher side but the serives are good. The staff was nice. The restaurant has good food , Should also visit the casino ~

I worked in Guinea for several years, and for Conakry this is one of the better hotels. The rooms are full of mosquitos, the hotel is right next to the train tracks and the water & electricity doesn't always work, but T.I.A. (this is africa) The restuarant and pool facilities are really good. Service is above average and the grounds... More

I was for 3 days on a business trip in Guinea and I stayed at Riviera Hotel. Given the country standards and set expectations, I have to confess that the hotel was way above our expectations. The services, the cleanness, the welcoming attitude and tasty food...all in all made our stay amazing

One of the most horrible hotel experiences I've ever encountered. I had a room near the train tracks so between the noise and mosquito bites I received all night long it didn't bode for a good night's sleep. After a couple of nights I noticed the maids kept the doors open while cleaning as they did not consider the fact... More

Best place to stay in Conakry: 1) 10 minutes from the airport. 2) Spacious and clean rooms. 3) Gym area , Swimming pool , tennis court and basketball playground. 4) Casino and a night club. 5) Excellent restaurant with the taste of Lebanon.. managed by extremely friendly staff. Cheers, Joe.

This Hotel is 5star compared to 100feet outside the grounds where you are put into the middle of africas poverty. Had a pizza and chicken club sandwich to eat and both were of very good standard. The hotel is clean and well presented. The only downside is the state of the pool, looked cloudy and had alot of insects and... More
