“Great location in Ouaga”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Great location with everything around you- coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets etc. Rooms are smallish and breakfast hall is unkempt. Reception is nice and polite. Some rooms have street and airport sound coming into your room all thru night. So ask for a quieter room. Okay value for money.

Let's start with the rooms we can qualified them as acceptable for Africa, but are not worth what they charge you!

The breakfast is over expensive and the restaurant is terrible.


It's definitely not the best hotel in town, and will only comeback there if all they others are fully booked.

Stayed one night at the hotel.

Pool clean and air conditioning worked well.

Minor fit/finish issues but normal for the area.

Lots of street vendors/beggars outside hotel. The security guard tried to give me a counterfeit $5 bill.

Room Tip: Splendid 2 Tower is newer.

The Splendid is a functional hotel located in the city center. Rooms are clean, A/C works, great water pressure. A little dated, carpet is worn, but it is quite satisfactory. The restaurant is adequate but there is a very nice coffee shop/cafe across the street (Le Cappuccino) which serves light meals and coffee as well as ice cream and pastries.
Pool looked inviting but water was pretty cloudy.
Overall the Splendid is a good choice when in Ouaga, nothing luxurious, but certainly adequate.
Price may be negotiable if you book in advance or have a local contact to negotiate.

Room Tip: First floor (one story up from lobby) will help you avoid waiting for elevator.

Located 5 minutes by car from the airport, this hotel is very close to the EU Delegation premises. It is a reasonably clean place. The air-conditioning was functioning properly. The furniture was slightly old and falling apart. The swimming pool was fine. I did not taste the breakfast as an Italian place just opposite to the hotel is a serious competitor with its delicious "croissants" and "couques" and Italian coffee! Staff was friendly...

Great location, really close to the airport. The rooms were air-conditioned and comfortable. Build quality wasn't the greatest, with a few cracked tiles. There was a fridge in the room.

Staff were very friendly and helpful - currency exchange was at a good rate too. Breakfast was mediocre - there was a choice, but none of it was particularly appetising.

Unfortunately, my room was facing a maquis (I think) that played loud music right through the night - I am usually a deep sleeper, but even with earplugs I hardly got any sleep over the 5 nights I was there. The windows didn't seem to seal properly so it was unbearably loud. It was truly horrendous. For this reason alone, I wouldn't stay here again although I think some of the other rooms are quieter (my room was front facing and on the first floor).
