service is not consistent; staff range from absolutely fabulous to rude and ridiculous. no variation in food available for breakfast or dinner and dinner prices are not consistent with price of accommodation. it's like it's 1990 when it comes to decor.

Recommend the place 100%, close to all places. Good value, net, food, private, rooms are spacious. Walking distance to most things , businesses. When on business trips, you need a place that has most and is low key. This is such a place .

Le Griffon is located in II Plateau on the busiest street of Rue de Jardin convenient if you are catching taxis. The rooms are Spartan but decent. The lobby area is comfortable enough for breakfast or tea. The restaurant has bad acoustics and a limited menu but it is pleasant and the staff prompt and accommodating. The only thing I... More

I just spent a week at La Licorne for business. It is no frills but safe, clean, comfortable enough, and with decent service. The quality of food for breakfast and dinner was good. The breakfast servers always did so with a happy smile; the dinner server kept her emotions more in check. The wifi was exceptionally good. Shops and restaurants... More

I stayed at La Licorne for 2 weeks recently on a business trip. The hotel is small and intimate and makes a pleasant change from the the venues in the city centre. I had a very large room which was well kept and very clean. Altogether, the hotel was spotless. The wifi internet worked most of the time and was... More

I stayed at the Licorne during a ten day business trip in Abidjan. The place is peaceful, the proprietor helpful, and the local staff friendly and reliable. The room was large and super clean, and in comparison with the tired chains like Novotel, the price/quality relationship is infinitely better. The hotel is in a good location in 2 Plateaux, a...

The rooms are alright, but a bit stuffy. My room had only tiny windows. The real bad thing: The whole place smells from the old dog that hangs out everywhere as well as from cat's pee. I was very disappointed after what I'd read here and on Lonley Planet. The location is great though but next time I'll definitely go... More

I spent 2 nights at Le Griffon during a recent business trip to Cote d’Ivoire. The hotel is really a nice friendly little place, a welcome respite from the busy streets of Abidjan. It is not located in the CBD of the city, but in the suburb of Deux Platauex. There didn’t seem to be much around the place but... More

Its small, it's not "flash" but it's got great decor, it's got great value and you always feel welcome. Definitely somewhere I feel comfortable and the balance of great food and welcoming hosts keepsake coming back.

The Licorne and Griffon are great hotels in a great location, II Plateau, near a variety of restaurants and grocery stores. The beds are great - firm mattresses and clean sheets, functioning A/C, wifi, and a good French restaurant. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, though they don't speak English. Laundry service is provided, and it is secure -... More
