Good business hotel in Nouakchott- stayed here for three nights and organized a full day workshop in one of the meeting rooms of the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful in getting everything set up. Hotel has an average standard, rooms are clean and spacious and wifi and air conditioning worked good! Make sure to get a room in...

I was initially skeptical about the place given the negative comments here, including a 5/12 ranking. However, the hotel is really decent. The airport transfer was smooth and free. The room (3rd floor) was renovated. The furniture looks new and kind of modern. The bathroom was clean with a good showerhead and clean water. The A/C worked without problems and... More

Tfeila is after Monotel, the only "enjoyable" place to stay in Nouakchott. Rooms are clean and large (although quite dated in the decoration)- Air conditioning and Wifi does not always work properly. However the outside space around the swimming pool is nice and refreshing

We found the hotel to be close enough to where we wanted to be. Nouakchott is such a chaotic place,a very ordinary city with a huge city sprawl. Traffic chaos is on display every minute one is on the street. Tfiela offered a refuge which for us was very quiet even though we faced the street. The level of cleanliness... More

I have lived in Africa for 2 years and been to 20+ countries across the continent and I am quite confident this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Key points: - Every room is seemingly a smokers room, it smells like an ashtray - Cockroaches stalk the halls and bathrooms seemingly unchallenged - A concert/party venue is... More

I have stayed in this hotel quite a few times. Until the recent opening of Monotel, it was the best hotel in Nouakchott. Large rooms with small balconies. The restaurant is average. Payment by visa Card.

I stayed on a business trip at this Hotel and found it pretty comfortable. Staff was helpful to get local sim card, local currency etc. Room was neat and clean and comfortable. The best thing was the food options as some of were worried for getting veg food.

This hotel is OK. I stayed here only once but would prefer to stay here over the Hotel Wissel. I do not know if there is a breakfast because I had to leave very early. The room was small but comfortable. There was not water kettle for tea or coffee, so I had to buy one across the street at... More
