If you're looking for a quiet hotel far away from the hustle of the city with relatively clean rooms and working air conditioner Joly might make you very happy.

Most hotels in this city are below western standards but come at a high price. Joly is no exception. You'll find the accommodations moderately clean and air conditioners working. Unfortunately, you'll find very little more to write home about.

The restaurant food is below average and expensive. Because of the location of the hotel it's pretty much your only option unless you choose to cab downtown.

You'll find the staff very kind and eager to help but if you don't speak French you'll be frustrated with their English.

Not my favorite place to stay in Ouga but you could can much much worse. You can spend a little more money and do much better.

At Joly Hotel you will enjoy very big, clean and neat rooms. The Bed is comfortable and the flat screen TV offers a large choice in terms opf channels. You have a good working place and large cupbord where you can store all your stuff.
I ate there only one time but it was ok, delivered on time at the right taste. Nut the price of the food is disproportionate.
Free wifi available for the guests and you can pay with your VISA card.
I disliked the old key system and the small shower cabin in the washroom.

Not a bad bet in Ouga. Rooms were clean and spacious, facilities were adequate and staff helpful. Breakfast was very good for this style of hotel and location worked for us although a bit away from the airport. Would happily stay again

The rooms at the Joly Hotel are poorly maintained, particularly in the bathroom where fixtures like the shower rose where either missing or falling of the wall (6 different rooms shared this fault). Rooms are quite large in the main building but with very spartan fit out, there is an annex across the road but did not try it.
Service at the front desk was patchy, 5 times I asked for an update on my laundry service and 5 times told it was about to be delivered to my room (it took a further 12 hours to arrive). When requesting currency exchange I was told they did have the correct amount so was paid a partial balance and told the rest would be delivered later. This did not happen and only a repeated request to front desk saw the correct monies exchanged 24 hours later.
Check out was ludicrously slow.
The Joly is located in the Oauga 2000 district and the lack of hotel competition in this district is obvious.
Room rate around US$200 equivalent... for questionable 3 star quality... Go figure???
Consider staying downtown

Hotel was very nice. Most of the staff knows english and they were very friendly. Manager(lady) will
care for you by asking whether you had breakfast/lunch/dinner...asking did u got good sleep. More over the place where it is located was pleasant. Night clubs and market were nearby.
