The garden is a cool place where... More

I have the highest regards for this bed and breakfast. It was very clean and quiet. The rooms were decorated with artifacts from Mal too. Very original. Very good food. Happy and kind people there!

I spent two weeks, and Bamako was an unforgettable experience. The hotel has a green courtyard with trees and a covered paillote where it is great to eat and work outdoors. The food is very good, home cooked meals. Beatrice is a wonderful host who helped me with figuring out the city. She went out of her way to make... More
