The hotel is fine for a short stay, anything longer than a week and I'd be looking at a more cosy smaller place. It has "security" which is fairly useless, but nice to see it none the less. I stayed in a Business room and benefited from a 4pm check out, standard room guests would have to pay $70 for... More

Stay here fairly regularly and has become my favorite hotel in Bamako. It is not in the main hustle and bustle but personally see this as a good thing. Traffic into town is not bad. Full gym, pool and massage area available. Decent internet, bed and ac. Food is good as well. Brig part of club carlson membership is recommended.

Location is slightly away from city centre. I used to stay in L'Amitie ex Sofitel which had the perfect location in Bamako, so is Hotel Salam. Rooms decent size but please don't focus on detail. I had the shower mul functioning; the provided kettle not working; but the housekeeping do a good job. The space in the hotel itself is... More

This hotel is in a good location in Bamako. Rooms are big and bathroom are nice with bath tub and shower. Breakfast is ok with enough choice and eggs cooked to order. The swiming pool area is not bad but not fantastic. Staff at reception is nice and very efficient.

I spent 9 days at the hotel in early March. Frankly my expectations weren't high given the daily challenges faced by many who live in Mali. With that expectation, I was pleasantly surprised. I had booked a business class room. This included breakfast each morning. The breakfast, if you wished, was cooked to order, the selection was good and certainly... More

Having not travelled extensively in Africa I'm perhaps not the best placed to comment on this hotel. The price was ridiculous considering the calibre of the hotel but I'm told this is usual for 'western' hotels in Africa. Thankfully this was a paid business trip. If you visit out of pocket you will surely be disappointed. Overall I enjoyed my... More

This is not the best Radisson Blu Hotel you will sleep at but, it's fine. Food is fine, every single air conditioning system worked fine and rooms were really big. Very few mosquitos. My bedroom had two beds. One of them, wasn't clean enough, one of the sheets had stains... It looked like blood but don't panic... mosquitos are full... More
