The employees are what make this a good hotel. Everyone I came across was courteous and very service-oriented, much more so than what you customarily find at hotels in Africa. To my surprise, much of the staff speaks English. The hotel itself is quite odd in its construction - a large interior courtyard with lots of marble, glass and metallic... More

The hotel just finished a significant renovation and addition. I stayed in the new 'wing' of the hotel and was very impressive with it's new, crisp and modern feel, with every basic amenity you could want or need. I had a great wifi connection, although a friend staying in the older portion of the hotel stated he had a weak/sporadic... More

Convienient location in ACI 2000, very courteous staff for French speakers. Restaurants are ok but service is slow. Excellent breakfast buffet. Rooms are well furnished by Bamako standards ( you do need to have an IQ of 180 to figure out the shower in the business suite rooms) The recent annex with standard rooms offer a better alternative for the...

Overall a nice hotel. It is not Beverly Hills 5-star but it is ideal for where it is. Staff are friendly, service is good, breakfast is great (coffee will be slow to the Americans distress). It is a fair distance from the airport but they can get you a cab easy enough. Difficult thing was the WiFi, worked fine for... More

Suleman on front desk was a pleasure to deal with; I'm afraid that's where the positives end. No shower (a bath with a handheld water head that doesn't have a wall bracket is not a shower), room service food standard was not impressive and left 9/10's of it, internet constantly dropping out, asked for transport to the airport and was...

This place suffers. It suffers from the total lack of competition. In a normal functioning economy this place would have been empty. This place has one advantage: it is nicely located. Everything else is horrible. The staff is of ridiculously low quality, have no manners and are dreadfully arrogant. I came with a longstanding reservation. It took the hotel 3... More

Feels like an airport, with high security, high prices and a nightly milling of Air France crews in the lobby bar. The rooms are fine: international, standard. But it's badly finished and maintained. The room phone didn't work. There was no hook on the bathroom wall for the shower head and no shower curtain to stop the floor and the... More

We stayed here for 4 days.It was ok but it is very very expensive.So if I know how much I didn't stay here at the begining. Services were not good. Services at rooms are also with cash. I didn't like this.
