CHECKIN & LOBBY: Checkin was ok. There is no reservation number, but they did have the reservation so all was ok. Lobby probably was fashionable a few decades ago. Corridors and stairwells are very shabby almost dilapidated– carpets are threadbare and ripped, walls in need of painting. Bad smells in certain places. Checkout was painfully slow – about an hour...

This hotel is reputed to be the best in Niamay. Well, I have a few reservations. The hotel needs renovation all over, the corridors to the rooms are rather dirty and badly kept, the rooms, if you get one facing the river, are not bad and so are the bathrooms, but nothing fancy and the price doesn't match the pretended...

I had hopes the rooms were going to be decent judging from the grandeur of the lobby, Unfortunately, it was a disappointing stay over all. I stayed there twice in February 2013 and June 2013. To start with the rooms the first one I had was clean but smelled of an old musty room. The bathroom was very clean, but... More

One of the most negative hotel experience I ever had in 15 years of travel... No cold water (tap was blocked for whatever reason), and the aircon was so noisy, I spent 3 nights without sleeping. Of course, I mentioned it but no one ever came to fix those problems. Not to mention the lack of shower gel on day... More

This hotel is what you might expect to find in Niger. It's old and quite decrepit. The lobby and reception area are fine, but the rooms have dirty carpets on the floors and peeling wallpaper with various and sundry stains on them. Also, upon returning to my room one day I found that housekeeping was cleaning the window ledges (a... More

Its is secure as most foreign officials make use of this place. Quite old and lost its glory kindof...centrally placed around the seat of government with a lake view at the back. Dinner is buffet and you get to eat as much as you want.

We stayed at Gaweye during November 2013. Some nights were too hot (A/C centrally controlled, no control in the room), whereas for some other nights, a/c would be on and room would be cold. Breakfast is not of really good quality, lots of bread products. Good points to staying at Gaweye are: Internet stable and fast enough (one can stream... More

I have been booked to stay in the hotel for seven nights. The hotel seems to have gotten a bigger reservation from some government agency and gave our prepaid rooms to them.......have been camping in their foyer for a few hours with total incompetent personnel not even trying to rectify. I am attempting to get a refund to look for... More

Great. Nice Stay. It seems like you were in the sixties with no renovation since...but all hotels are the same way, and the entrance hall is obviously the most spacious. Good pool and tennis. Breakfast not that good but acceptable for French or American breakfast. Dinner buffet is small but there is fish, meat, vegetables, rice and potatoes. So enough... More
