If you have to go to Niamey, and I recommend that you don't, you may consider staying at Hotel Gaweye because Grand Hotel du Niger is permanently fully booked. You will not be disappointed if your expectations are very, very, very low. You are in a very poor African country after all. Everything in this hotel looks tired. So does... More

This was my second stay in Hotel Gaweye. Compared to my first stay in December 2014, a lot has changed. Carpets, sofas, and all other aesthetic part of the hotel have changed. Even their main restaurant has finished renovation and now looking very new and clean. However, the rooms are still the same. It has that hotel feeling compared to... More

Good location if attending a meeting at the Palias Congress, otherwise not idea for a holiday. Noisy, poor internet connectivity, but very friendly staff though. Not up to standard for it's 4 star rating.

Apart from the spacious and fairly appealing entrance and reception area, it's like stepping into a hotel in an 70:s James Bond Movie and you look twice for Roger Moore or thugs to rush past you when you step out of the elevator... Rooms are old dark with a slight humid pungent smell... Service is uninspired and sleepy and customer-mindedness... More

Very old hotel, old staff this place is like a joke when when I read that it's among the best hotels in Niamey. Carpets are worn-down, bathrooms are dirty, towels are old and also worn-down. The staff is not friendly and doesn't care about your needs. You can enter the restaurant, eat and go out without being seen by a... More

This is by far the biggest dump I have been to in a long, long while. It is not only a dump, it is a total rip-off. It is close to a crime to call this place a hotel. It is everything you do not want: it is old, dirty and worn-down. Staff lacks all the basic skills expected. The... More

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...
