There is a a couple of reasons why Comme Chez Soi is ranked 1st on Trip Advisor. The first is it is very well priced and located, almost half the price of other similar sized and rated hotels. Secondly it is very clean, well managed and has a lovely pool. Third it has a very good restaurant, although separately managed... More

Comme Chez Soi is a wonderful refuge from the chaos and rigor of navigating Bamako, and a real treat after a week en brousse. I've been a guest many times since 2010 and it always provides a comfortable friendly place to rest well and recharge. I direct a non-profit project in Mali and CCS works well for me when I... More

It’s my 4th time in Le Comme Chez Soi and I’m sure that this will not be my last time. The rooms are very basic but you will have an AC, warm shower, free breakfast ( Coffee or thee, juice, bread, egg, jam and a yogurt) and free WIFI. They also have a nice restaurant with good food and nice... More

I spent a long week-end here and felt at home. Pick-up at the airport, six rooms, mosquito net, ceiling fan, air-con, unobtrusive, but attentive service, clean, decent price and good location. Good bars and restaurants within walking distance.What more do you want?

Coming by car to the entrance of this Hotel you might be shocked ( waste overall ). Coming into the yard, the picture is changing ! Clean rooms, air-contioned, shower is running with hot water ! On a nice terasse you can enjoy perfect food. Advisable is room Nr. 1 ! For about 70$ you will have a perfect night.

Didn't think this establishment was anything other than ordinary, although staff is trained up and friendly, even with proprietor not on the scene. Restaurant during this stay was shutdown, unopened, other than for the breakfast. Maybe they were the main attraction for Chez Soi because the rooms here are entirely ordinary, basic actually. Some have shared bathrooms, the two in... More

This review will be easy to write: If you're in Bamako, stay here. That's really all you need to know. You wont' do better for price and still have a nice place. The food is *amazing,* and the staff is the best I've ever had in Mali. More details: Stayed for two weeks on one trip, and one week the... More

We stayed 1 night in the bungalow and 2 nights in the triple room. Try the bungalow, very nice. The place itself wasn't easy to find, taxi driver asked 4-5times (it usually happens in Africa) until we finally made it there. The owner is very kind. I really respect genuine people who are doing what they like, and she is... More
