I read the reviews before choosing hotels and the main thing seemed to be that the rooms were old. I figured that was ok, and I had been warned. Still it’s a shame that the hotel does not try harder to make the rooms welcoming. For starters the room smelled damp, given that this is a humid place I figured... More

This hotel is just about average in every way- the location is good.The rooms are old style and rather small. Service is below average- one needs to keep calling housekeeping ,reception or any of the hotel staff numerous times and often calls are not answered- excuses are numerous! The Breakfast service is poor and the hostess is rude- refuses to... More

The is very limited choice of business hotels in Abidjan, and I think the Novotel knows it. This is, by many standards a fairly expensive hotel, but lacking in any attention to detail or service that justifies the prices charged. The room was tired and the bathroom grubby in the extreme. Black mildew in all the grouting, bath and sink... More

I was recently in Abidjan, booked Novotel cause it was close to the company office. The hotel is OK, classical Novotel furnishings, not very new, but they are renovating some floors. So maybe next year they will offer better rooms, maybe with different prices, worth a better Rating. The food is good, breakfast has a lot of different stuff. The... More

On a business trip to Abidjan I had a disappointing stay at this Accor chain hotel. Initially I was put in a reasonable room but was then moved under the pretence of renovations being done. However these renovations were on a different floor so the logic escaped me. The move took me to a very old, tired 1960's room. On... More

Despite the fact that the hotel is a bit aged ( they have renovation project going on), they managed to deliver a very attentive and pleasurable experience! They are very focus on anticipating guest needs, and creating a very warm atmosphere. Breakfast is great, food selection is large and fresh, I got my coffee served less than 2 min after... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week In a suite. Good clean room with attached dining room and kitchenette. Comfortable bed and pillows. Room service was good. Nice view of the lagoon. Breakfast was good. Do not go out walking in the night. The area gets taken over by street walkers in the night.
