The staff of Pullman Douala are really nice, but hotel needs a lot of improvement to suit the brand. It is limit OK. Being a frequent visitor to Douala and a frequent user of Accor Hotels, I was seriously hoping to hotel would improve when it became Pullman. Nothing so far.

Contrary to the bizarre reviews, this is a nice hotel with a thoroughly pleasant staff. If your ego requires Africans to effusively pander to you while grinning from ear to ear, then perhaps the staff might fall short. But every staff member I've encountered has been completely respectful and helpful. Frankly, I might have given it four stars ordinarily on... More

The Pullman Douala hotel is quite good and has an outdoor restaurant beside the pool which is very nice in the evenings. Food is ok even though the staff sometimes seems confused and mixes up your orders. The rooms are somewhat aged and the smell in the room was peculiar but then I realized i didn't get a non-smoking room.... More

We organised a 3-day event at the Pullman Douala Rabingha. Staff and service were excellent, flexible and available. The location of the hotel makes it very easy to access from anywhere in the city. The atmosphere allows moments of relax during or after a very busy day!

I recently had to use this hotel while in Douala, I think its fair to say it's as poor as it gets as far as the standard of accommodation is concerned. The hotel and the rooms are about 20 years past its sell by date. I understand it was recently taken over by Pullman I can only imagine the previous... More
