Nicest thing is indeed the location, on the Niger river and in the safe Cité du Niger neighborhood. Have been here every so often for seminars and workshops but slept there only once before. This time around I saw that the place in in steady decline: rooms have not been refurbished in years. Room was filthy to begin with but... More

We visited this hotel as day visitors to use the pool and have refreshments. For 4000 Sfr you get a towel, a drink and use of the pool for a day. It is well located and about as good as things get in Mali without paying a fortune. The pool is clean but you will be washing weird chemicals out... More

Overall nice location over looking the river but this is Mali and the hotel was tired, poor decor and the basics not covered; shower broken toilet not flushing properly etc. bed was hard but comfy with a good sized mosquito net. Pool nice and big but chlorine too strong. Staff are friendly but longer the stay the worse these the... More

The only positive is the location! On the Niger River in the posh and quiet quartier of Citè Niger. The place is run down and very dirty. Windows in room are filthy and cracked, bathrooms walls haven't been washed in months if ever - covered in dirty splashes, nearly everything is broken or falling off the wall.... Hugely over priced... More

The hotel itself is nothing amazing - the rooms are ok, but a little dark (at least mine was - I was on the first floor). The beds and pillows were very comfortable, but some of the other amenities were lacking (there were few outlets in the room and one in mine did not work, door had to be double... More

This hotel was a good stay for the business traveller, with large rooms, nice scenery along Bamako's Niger River, and good quality food. Although the rooms are old and a bit damp and musty, this is not terribly unusual in West Africa because of the climate. The rooms were clean and very functional however, with a good hot shower (though... More

i stayed here in 2008 and again in 09. i stayed in a suite which was well below par it had no fridge the television did not work and the A/C was less than adequate. the saving grace for this hotel is the location the views and the restaurant which is perched over the river and very scenic. the staff...

Your approach to the hotel is through a pretty rough area. I drove down right at the end of Ramadan and felt pretty sorry when looking at the hundreds of goats tied up getting ready to be butchered right there on the side of the road. There is a build going on next door to the hotel, the only effect... More

I stayed here as a guest while also hosting a 4-day meeting at the Hotel Mande. The hotel is in a leafy upscale neighbourhood a bit distant from the hustle and bustle of Bamako, but in a prime location on stilts in the Niger River. The views along the river at sunrise and sunset are quite spectacular. The food choice,... More
