During my short stay I had the chance to visit three hotels even though I only stayed at Novotel Orisha. Staff at Orisha is very friendly and when I showed my Accor hotel membership card (never used before) I was upgraded to suite at the same price. The suite however was not so fancy but had an extra Conference room... More

I spent 4 nights in this hotel for a short vacation. The hotel is clean and quite. I had a good rest. The food was up to standard and not too expensive. I strongly recommend this hotel for business trip or vacation. I cant wait to be back in Novotel Orisha!

Good location hotel, but rather very poor services and maintenance. Staff not customer friendly nor approachable.. Rooms fairly decent and clean, but had major water leakage on the rug on two floors (2nd and 3rd floors), with tell tale evidence that this certainly has happened in the past - leaves a rather unpleasant odor in the hallway. Very small lounge... More

Its a nice, clean property in a very prominent location. A family friendly hotel with nice spacious rooms with extra sofa beds.

I have been told this is a pretty good hotel for Africa. It was OK. The room has a bed that sits on slats, so it was not real comfortable. There was also a couch that wasn't real comfortable either. The room has a small refrigerator and a hot water pot for making coffee which was nice. The air conditioning... More

This was my first stay here. By the approach, and entrance you would expect more. Love that it is 5 minutes from the airport. Arrival didn't go down well. He tried checking in two at a time.
