This boutique hotel is comparable to none in Mali in terms of style. Villa Soudan is filled with really beautiful and stunning carvings and other works of art. It is beautiful and set on the beautiful river. Fortunately they provide mosquito nets and spray to guests - recognizing that mosquitoes are unavoidable. The staff are very pleasant, non-intrusive, and this... More

This place seems to improve every time I visit it. The welcome is pleasant; the rooms are comfortable, cool and well ventilated. Everything in the bathrooms works. The dining area is an open area which is sometime a problem with insects in the evening. The view of the Niger River is appreciated but it would be nice if the dining... More

I stayed here for two weeks and loved the location, the stunning view, the friendly atmosphere, and the spacious room. The quality of the food is very good and the choice of wine was better than in a much more expensive hotel. All the staff are delightful and take special care to remember guest names and assist with anything needed.... More

A peaceful, small, boutique hotel. This is a really great place to stay in Bamako. It is right on the banks of the river, so the view is pretty great. The staff are extremely friendly. Although the location in Bamako itself is in a lovely area, there is also very good security - they check everyone before allowing entry e.g.... More

I stayed at Villa Soudan for work in July 2012, and while the room ran me about $100/night and you can easily spend $30 on a meal, the ambiance of the hotel, the attentiveness of the staff, and the quality of the rooms and facilities was very nice. There is laundry, a full bar and restaurant, several other restaurants within... More

We stayed here for a few weeks while looking for a house to move in. Staff is nice and friendly. The restaurant is good and clean with a beautiful view of the river, even if the menu is a bit limited if you're planning for an extended stay. Rooms are spacious with AC, ceiling fan and mosquito nets (even if... More

During an evening meal at this hotel during the third night of our visit, we were fortunate enough to find this gem of a hotel on the banks of the Niger river. Unfortunately, we were not able to move to this hotel for some time because of no vacancy. Eventually we able to finish our last week at this hotel... More

Super friendly staff, stunning view of the Niger, great pool to cool down after a day in the Malinese sun and a location that is nicely tugged away from the BKO buzz: The only drawback is that it's a bit far from the city center and it's hard to get a taxi in evenings. We'll recommend it to everyone visiting... More
