We stayed at the hotel during Christmas. The best part is the pool but they have a timing so make you ask for it beforehand. The breakfast is decent Continental Breakfast with few Vegetarian option like Curd, Milk, Bread, Juices, Dry fruits, Fruits, etc. They have taxi stand. There is big mall nearby about 5-7 min drive. There are good... More

- Secure & clean ( not super clean but god). - low quality food... but not sure if you can find better outside. yet, you can find cheaper for sure - located in the same 'compound' as IBIS Hotel. Yet, my local contact proposed Novotel as a better place ( it is more expensive too) If you set your expectations... More

I along with a group of friends went to Cotonou to escape the hustle and bustle of Lagos for a long weekend. At arrival we were checked in immediately and we were given a wifi username and password that were good for up to three devices! The hotel lobby along with the rooms and the swimming pool area were spotless.... More

Located in the heart of the city, this hotel is a good place for business or families with children alike. Its rooms are relatively clean and comfortable, with access to a good Wi-Fi connection. Friendly staff and warm environnement. The restaurant offers a variety of food prepared by a French Chef. Highly recommended.

I had a business visit, and stayed at this hotel for the first time. I found it very comfortable, and as the location is less than 10 minutes from the airport it is easy to get to after a long journey. The rooms were spacious, the Internet connection was good and the breakfast sufficient. I will be staying again the... More

This is a fine fine hotel and the best part without doubt is the fantastic swimming pool and the area around it. The wifi works more than fine in the room and near the pool and its faster than most other hotels. Only flipside is that the service might be sub standard if you dont speak or understand French. Expected... More

Let me start out by saying that if I didn't have to be very close to the conference center I would have left this hotel after one night. The service was completely horrible, with front desk staff lazy, incompetent and downright rude. The staff in the restaurant were also filled with attitude and slow to react any inquiries. The carpeting... More

I was rather disappointed in the overall experience at the Novotel Orisha Cotonou. The service was ordinary, the facilities dated and rather dirty, the rooms ordinary - with poor airconditioning, poor TV, poor internet/WiFi, and completely overpriced ($200 per night - for no more than 2 star quality). As a business hotel, connectivity is key - and the Novotel internet... More

Service was friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms clean and beds comfortable. Airconditioning and wifi signal strength in the rooms could do with an upgrade though. Breakfast was reasonable and one can order fresh fried eggs or omelettes from the waiting staff. Nice poolside area.

Novotel Cotonou is the extreme of 2 things; on one hand the rooms are crappy, carpet full of stains, paint coming off left and right; on the other hand the warm approach by the staff keeps me bringing back here. Service in Africa is hard to find, but here there is always a smile. Never quick service but still. This... More
