Perfect stay, wonderful swimming pool, good restaurant, fine bedrooms, charming staff. What else can I say? Well, the only minor appreciation is that it is rather far from the inner city, but you have trustworthy taxis who will lead you downtown for a reasonable fare. Recommended.

This hotel is a hidden gem that I have experienced in all its phases since its founding in 1980. In the current context I think it is an undervalued gem. It is in a great location near the barrage with several very good local restaurants within walking distance. Despite being closed two years due to a fire, they have kept... More

Maybethe 4 stars ranking is a little bit overrated... The rooms are clean and big enough, internet is lousy-finally I used my mobile phone at hotspot, and 3G in Burkina is not very fast! Food is decent but expensive. Far away from the city center and airport. A lot of mosquitos arround the hotel.
