Stayed in this Hotel for 2 nights ..! I must say, you have lots of better options available in Yaounde in the same price range. Try exploring them. Rooms are old and NOT properly kept, Bathrooms are not up to the mark. and Breakfast NOT MANY CHOICES & SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS..!!

Apart from the electrical needs to charge my phones, a toilet to poo and have a shower, the rest is a joke for me. We arrived late at night, the lady at front desk seems helpful but she couldn't speak much English. Overcharged me on the credit card machine. And she keyed in once again, I signed and left the...

Stayed in executive double room. The others were not only too small, but the TV was off to one side at a weird angle. Restaurant has good food but is pricy, there's also no option to eat out nearby, Staff are excellent, taxis abundant just outside. A great place to stay in Cameroon. (honestly speaking, reached this conclusion after having... More

1. The Central Air-conditioning is NOT functional. It blows fan and keeps your room at about 30 degrees Celsius. I cannot sleep at all in the room and it is a night vigil for me tonight. 2. The Guest relations woman cannot lift a finger to help you. 3. The hotel manager will never respond to calls to his phone.... More

Hotel Franco seems to be at the beginning stages of recovery after years of mismanagement. Tired, dingy and lacking any charm, the staff seems worn out and uncaring. Was recently part of a conference at the Franco and was overcharged for food, the conference room, the projector rental, etc. Although I was part of the group hosting the conference, we... More

not much to say. Not good but no alternative as it was next to my job. I have seen worse, but that's about how positive I could be. Nice view though. and not too far from the center. Lifts often out of order. no safe in the room.

In the room, the shower head was broken with the pieces left on the tub. The AC hardly blew any air at all. The inside door lock was broken. The curtains were filthy. The furniture was sparse. A big old tv sat on the table as though the room was used for the storage of old broken equipment. The mattress... More

My room was clean and comfortable on the pool side. Hotel staff were serviceable and generally pleasant to deal with. Nice pool and bar. The only dark spot is the restaurant. The food is ok if overpriced, particularly the breakfast buffet, which is a particularly sad sight. Time between ordering and being served is well over 1 hour at diner... More
