It was my first time in an Azalai Hotel and although I did not have any expectations, I thought the hotel was just okay. The reception hall is very spacious which is not common in hotels in West Africa. The rooms are large too. What I liked the most in my room was the bathroom, I found it trendy. However,... More

This was a meeting place for our group of travelers. When we were dropped off, the doorman opened the door but made no effort to help bring the luggage inside. The front desk was very helpful. The restaurant was difficult to navigate and the food was ok.

Have stayed many times and the staff are good and helpful even if I don't speak French. But the breakfast is grim and dinner worse. Strange as Cotonou has some great restaurants. I sometimes got a seaview but every time the sea is foggy. Nevertheless the rooms are v comfortable.

Azalai Hotel is very good value for money. I was there on a business trip and a friend recommended this hotel. From the concierge to the manager and all other staff of the hotel, they were very professional, helpful and courteous. The food was quite nice and I had a very nice view of the beach and the pool from... More

Overall the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a spa and gym located near the pool. Although very small the spa was very nice. There is a gym with three treadmills, a rowing machine, elliptical machine, and two stationary upright bikes. There are some dumbbells, weighted balls, and resistance bands. The attendants kept the small gym very hot... More

Stayed here a few nights. This is a relatively new place and it was my first stay. All was well with the room, parking, WiFi and service. In fact I give these aspects of the hotel 4 stars. Add breakfast and it's 3 stars The humidity in Cotonou is high to begin with. Placed inside this is a glass enclosed... More

As others have noted, you must realize that this review is from the perspective of hotels in western Africa. The Azalai hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean (my biggest concern in hotels) and roomy. It had all the basic amenities and everything worked properly. The pool was nice; there were plenty of chairs to sit outside;... More

Stayed here for one week in November 2013 for a work meeting. I get that this is about as good as it gets in Cotonou, and I travel in the region a lot and have stayed in everything from shared hostel rooms upward, so I’m reviewing not with western eyes but comparable to other business hotels I’ve stayed in in...
