Not disappointed, very good for business travel, pricey but you do not have a lot of choice in Bamako. Here are the good points for business travelers, Fast internet, A good desk in rooms, Trouser Iron, Coffee Maker, Small but efficient market for needs like local sim card etc... and very nice breakfast.

I have stayed atleast 3 times and haven't been disappointed by them in anything. Staff are very good and they speak English, kind of broken but you can understand, Their rooms are very good, and they are maintaining it very well, Of all the hotels I stayed in west Africa this one stands out ..

We stayed in this hotel for 10 days, the rooms are large with a sitting area and a bar, it felt like a small apartment. The pool area is nice, with an open restaurant area. The menu is a bit limited, the portions weren't huge. There is a gym and areobics studio on site. There is also very tight security... More

I have had several trips to Mali and i have stayed in a different hotel each trip. Radisson blu was my best option so far. Though the location is a little far from the city, i think the hotel is best equipped with what you just need for a business trip. The Hotel is very well secured with 24 hour... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Radisson Blu. The staff was very friendly and professional. My French isn't very good so whenever I needed help at the front desk, they made sure to get a staff member who could communicate easily with me. I ate most breakfasts and dinners at the hotel and the food was very good. The... More

This is supposedly one of the better hotels in Bamako. Spent a week here again and was as disappointed as my previous stay. Nothing has improved. The rooms are still as small and dark as they have always been. Staff is utterly inattentive on the limit of arrogant and rude. Service is dreadfully slow. Staff can regularly be observed at...

The hotel was ideal for the reason I was there - which was to attend a meeting for two days. I was warmly received and the room was fine. I got one of the rooms with the balcony overlooking the parking lot - and it is good that one cannot hear the noise outside. Also it is well built that... More

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.
