I stayed at Hotel Iman for about a week at the end of March 2014. The room was clean, the air-conditioning was working well and the room was equipped with a small fridge. I asked the staff at reception for additional clothes hangers and an iron which were promptly placed in my room. Breakfast (not included in the price) was... More

Stayed here for 1 night on a recent business trip, and found the hotel to be decent given the country you are in. It is not a luxury 5 star resort by any means, but you wouldnt expect to find that in Mauritania. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The shower had hot water. They are the main... More

Residence Iman is a very basic hotel in Nouakchott: Rooms are reasonably well equipped, quite dark with dated furniture and extremely hard mattress. My room did not have hot water. Internet works very badly. The airport shuttle bus (which is complementary) did not come to pick me up at the airport -although I have send a reminder email- this was... More

I stayed in a 1 bed apartment styled room. Kitchen was clean and had all the tools to cook and eat. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Restaurant had good choices and the staff were very friendly. I would recommend this hotel.

We were very pleased that we chose to stay here at the beginning and end our trip in Mauritania. The hotel is central right opposite where the new US Embassy is being built. Staff are very friendly and eager to please. The lady at the reception desk is especially helpful. We had a very nice room on the third floor... More

Nothing brilliant to say about it, but nothing too scathing either. I´ve stayed here on and off several times over the last year, only because I have no choice as this was the accommodation the company paid for. Rooms are large enough, self catering kitchen, staff are tolerant of their guests, if ordering food in the restaurant its usually easier... More

During my last stay in Nouakchott there was still a Novotel there. Now the IMAN is probably the best hotel in town. Excellent location if arriving by car from the north (Morocco). Just turn left at the first major intersection. For Mauritanian standards - one of the dirtiest capitals in the world - this place is very high quality.

Stayed here for almost 2 months in 2012. Great facility; can pick different sizes depending on how many rooms you need. Spacious Living Room, Kitchen, 2 Bedrooms, 2 baths. Housekeeping every day. Walking distance to minor food shopping. Swimming Pool. A great restaurant attached to the building complex. A short straight-line distance to the ocean, but due to the road... More

An oasis in Nouakchott, the best hotel. I've tried others hotels, but this is, by far, the best one. The rooms are quiet comfortable, and the restaurant serve nice meals and we feel safety on the installations.

I was in Nouakchott on business for a couple of nights. I visited this and the Atlantic hotel. The Atlantic is a bit nicer, but this one was fine. I was placed in a room over looking the pool and "night club". It was a bit noisy the second night until 11 or 12. The room was basic with a... More
