Stayed in March 2012. Welcoming lobby that also provides access to the resturaunt, a gift shop, and stairs leading to the chambers. The walls were decorated with varying types of local crafts. The thick exterior walls provided ample protection to the small arms fire that emanated throughout the city; resulting in a difficult time of sleeping with the staccato echo.... More

There are plenty of nice hotels with good service in Bamako - the Nord-Sud is not one of them. I really like the other Azalai hotels in Bamako (The Grand Hotel and the Hotel Salaam) and thus, when I couldn't get a room at either of those, I booked a room at the Nord-Sud, thinking it would be of comparable...

the rooms are clean and there is a nice pool and small workout facility. it is well located for visiting government offices in town-many were within walking distance. no complaints at all. except--tons of mosquitos. they are in the rooms and in the lobby/restuarnat. we are not talking about one or two. there were swarms.

The staff was rude and obnoxious, the food poor, breakfast appaling and the rooms rather standard (considering the price). After one night we decided to move (after a suggestion by some of our friends). We ended up at sister hotel... More
