Hotel du port is located in a good part of town. Rue de marina is one of the most important streets in Cotonou, the president's office is located on the same street, the port is located just next-door the hotel. The most important government offices and private offices are located around the street so staying in this hotel puts you... More

In all my years of travelling (even to very remote places), I have never had the privilege of staying in such a God-forsaken place... The room, had an airconditioning unit that must have been built by some Soviet engineer: it was so loud, my son and I had to practically scream to make ourselves heard!! When we finally decide that... More

May be not the best hotel in Cotonou, but I like the relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are very basic, airconditoning normally works, the clientele is international and usually easy to approach for some small talk after a hard day of work

This hotel is located in the city end, close to the sea. This bath room is not clean, and there is a small window in the upper part of a bathroom. This window is not closed tightly, so some moskitos can throw into the romm. So, if you stay at this hotel, you need a moskito net.

I've spent a night in this hotel before I join a vessel ... old furniture and low quality of services. The personnel behavior was nice, but difficulties appear when you need to communicate with them. Food quality not so good.

Hotel has one if the best swimming pools I have ever seen (in hotel), clean - 25 meters with 3 jumping towers. Food is good but all the rest is not the best. Dirty rooms, no English speaking personnel, problems with magnetic cards - need to recharge them all the time at the Reception, very slow Internet. Also I spend... More

The Hotel du Port is a nice little hotel with a great pool area and good little restaurant, but don't go here expecting a room like at a Western hotel/motel - not even a Super 8 type. There is AC and wireless internet (although spotty in some areas), but you will have some 6 & 8 legged visitors in your... More

This hotel has surprisingly good rooms and generally was larger and better than I expected from reading reviews. Central(ish) location on the edge of the port which seems a bit incongruous from the pool! The restaurant service when I used it was sloooow (over an hour to get a pizza) but the quality was good and prices respectable. Great large... More

The wifi in the room simply doesn't work. The room smells inseticide. At that point I wouldn't care to write a bad... More
