I use this hotel regularly for evening meals as they do a great daily special for 10,000 CFA. The owner is very friendly and the service is excellent. Its a very friendly and pleasant atmosphere even for a drink.

A review from Mali must begin with the recognition that you are in West Africa, in a very poor and hot country. The hotel is located on a typical Bamako street in the northern part of the city. The entrance to the hotel is almost invisible, with garbage cans right in front. The hotel management should make an effort (a... More

Rooms are ok as they are big even though not so well maintained...but the worst thing of this hotel are the common areas. the entire hotel is a smoking room, during breakfeast you have people around smoking, windows closed, during diner the same. for that reason if you are a non smoker I would really avoid this place.

I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel Le Loft. It was a nice little hotel with comfortable and clean rooms. It had a nice feel to it and the staff was always friendly and helpful. My only complaint was that it is RIGHT on the road... My room had quite a bit of road noise. Maybe it would have been better... More

The hotel is ok. Rooms have a good size and are clean. The restaurant is quite nice. A good option for a couple of nights in Bamako. Bad experience with the driver that they called for us. We arrange for him to take us to Djenne and tried to rip us off at the last minute. I would reccommend you... More

After staying in characterless hotels in British ex-colonies in Africa this hotel was a welcome change. This is not a fancy hotel, and everything is just functional. The best part of the hotel was the restaurant and the French lady owner who is very friendly. Personal service by the staff and atmosphere was great. My host made the booking for... More

I stayed at the hotel for a week, by my second day however I was calling around for substitutes but the rooms were full. The hotel rooms were tired but clean. I had a rest room that overlooked the main street and had to creep in and out of the rest room to avoid being seen from the street below... More

I moved to this place to spend a weekend after having been to an overpriced, ugly hotel for a conference in Bamako. What a relief! Very nice interior, very reasonable rates, wireless, friendly and helpful staff, and an excellent restaurant. The only disadvantage was the main road in front of the hotel. But I recommend this hotel, will come back... More

Hotel is in a central location on a main road. Can be a bit noisy at night. Was clean and a pretty good value. Not quite 5 out of 5 though. Didn't have much character.
