Whoever gave this hotel 5* must have been bribed or a gun was pointed to his family!! impossible! Brown water, that is when it was available. in fact every time we needed to take a shower, we would call reception and report that there is no water, then immediately brown water would flow from the taps. As for bedding (lol)...oh... More

This was clearly once a very prestigious hotel, but my room was very dated and many things didn't function. It was clean enough, but I didn't get a hot shower for three days and the water came out like a hose pipe! The food and drinks were overpriced and underwhelming. The view from the restaurant on top of the hotel... More

I grew up in Yamoussoukro and spent many Saturdays at the swimming pool at this hotel. After 15 years away from Côte d'Ivoire I visited Yamoussoukro again and stayed at the President. It has aged a bit but it's still easily the best hotel in this part of the world. You may have to brush up on your French though... More

Pros -Clean. -Hot water. -Large room. -Internet worked (well at least sporadically). -Good breakfast. -Given I was in a small city in Cote d'Ivoire for business and had never stayed in Yamoussoukro before I thought the hotel was pretty decent. Cons -Not too many, depends on your expectations. -I think I was charged a different rate than locals, and the... More

Hotel President in Yamoussoukro is a dated but clean and well maintained one in this small city. I have spent 3 days at this hotel, including the 2014 Reveillon Party. The staff at the reception were very helpful and, in some way, friendly. The furniture is old but in good condition as it is the rest of the building. There... More

Dated hotel, no renovations done to bring it in to the 21st century. Visited as a couple. We arrived at 2pm , rooms not ready though you could supposedly check in at noon. Came back at 4pm, room still not ready. Finally given keys at 5:30 pm too late to use the swimming pool. To add insult to injury, the... More

Stayed for one night here at hotel President. First room we was shown was pretty smelly and certainly seen better days . The second was a little better and although nothing great. If you want a shower be prepared to run the water for a while until it loses its brown colour. Room rate was reasonable although breakfast was a... More

We were not in the main building but in a smaller building across from the hotel with a better price, not so expensive. The room was absolutely fine, with large windows and a balcony. The bathroom was a bit so-so, but it went well. The restaurant almost too luxurious for the food that was not so very good. Not bad,... More

This is a quite decent international-style hotel. Rooms are ok at a quite reasonable price. Rooms in the "batiment" are comparable to those in the tower but cheaper. The top-restaurant is highly recommended - very nice ambience, good food, friendly waiters with French chansons. A nice, clean pool and some bars. You won't have much to complain even though it...

We went for a two day trip to visit the sites in Yamoussoukro. We booked the "Club Evasions" rate, including Breakfast and Dinner, which ended up being fairly reasonable. We had two connecting rooms in the outlying building (not the tower), in order to accommodate our two children and us more comfortably. We ate breakfast in the tower both mornings... More
