Hotel is fine and spacious in public areas. Rooms a bit small with no lounge chair, but only a small work desk. Internet is slow, by western standards, but very good for the region. On arrival, the reception was cramped, and people were queuing up to either check in or check out. I understand this may align with flight schedules,... More

You always seem to have to make allowances when you are in Ivory Coast. This is a lovely hotel with stunning views across the lagoon and a wonderful pool of epic dimensions. You won't find a better large scale luxury option in Abidjan. That said the place has a slightly sad feel to it and the staff are relentlessly hostile... More

The sofitel Abidjan is probably the best hotel you can find in Abidjan. Yet, taking the high price in account, it leaves some wishes open. The hotel seems to have undergone a renovation, so the rooms are rather new and clean, however quite small. The restaurants and food is quite good. The main problem is the service. Especially the front... More

Overall, a terrible experience. I am a frequent business traveler with a large financial institution based in Johannesburg, South Africa and can truly say this is one of the worst customer service experiences I have had.

I come here very often at least every three or 4 months. This hotel can either be your best experience in Abidjan or the worse. As today.

I've been staying in the Ivoire for 20+ years--- and have seen the hotel and the city go through ups/downs. Just visited again after a 4 year gap---and was great to see the tower of the hotel rennovated and back to grandeur. Hopefully the main part of the hotel will be open again for business soon. Quick/easy check in. Tiny... More

I don't have a baseline for Abidjan but this place feels like a 3 star hotel until you have to pay for anything. The reception area is pleasant but dated - the furniture maybe new (or not) but the style is 90's. The lower ground floor pool deck area is likewise a nice place to hang out and the staff... More
