    Nice hotel, the rooms were good and clean. Airco was working and the shower and toilet are good and clean. The pool is also cleaned on a daily base. Breakfast and lunch are good as is diner with lots of fruit and vegetables. Wifi is slow. When you are in Bamako I certainly recommend this hotel.

    I've stayed at this Place a few times, for about a week each time. Although quite expensive, it is a comfortable Place to stay and offers good working possibilities for those travelling for business. Internet may be off or slow, but that's probably a provider issue and not a hotel problem. There are ATM's in the hotel, which is a... More

    This place is actually a good one for those staying in Bamako for business. Rooms are spacious and clean. The staff very helpful and always ready to help and assist. The place needs however improvement. Wifi network is very slow. TV in the room is not set in a way to allow guests to watch comfortably. After a hectic day,... More

    I stayed for two days while in Bamako. The hotel room was clean and the staff are friendly. There is a pool at the back but the gym is small and lacks a lot of equipment and what is present needs replacing. There are two ATM's in the building. I was not overly impressed with the menu but the food... More

    I stayed at the "annex" of Azalai Grand. Throughout my stay I did not manage to find out whether this was the same or another hotel. I definitely did not find out if it had another name. The hotel is ok. It is clean and relatively comfortable. The rooms are huge, but without any sense of style and terrible light,... More

    The hotel was probably top of the bill in former times, but its glory has faded. The elevator wasn't working when I arrived. It was still not functioning when I left (5 days later). The rooms are spacious, bathroom is ok, sleeping comfort is ok too. Water pressure could do with a bit more, as the shower has a hard... More

    Positives are that the location is convenient, most staff are friendly and the rooms are spacious. However service is quite inefficient and slow. One day I killed a cockroach in the bathroom and left it there by the door, for 2 days it was still there. Shower gel was not replaced for 4 days. The sheets, pillow cases and pillows... More

    I have stayed 4 times at the Grand Hotel and the staff remembers my name. I like the rooms: the beds are nice (sheets have been used too many times and brand new ones would be welcome). They all are like mini suites with a TV area with a couch and minibar. Bathrooms are really nice with lots of counter... More

    This is a 3.5 star rating for me. I don't know what it is about this hotel. It feels like a classy hotel past its prime. Staff managers around the restaurant are not particularly friendly; Grand hotel is definitely much more modest than its cousin Azalai Salam. But there is a nice relaxed feel to it. Like a strange salon... More
