The Location of the Hotel is good & adequate parking is available. Staff is generally helpful & even go out of their way to help. Restaurant serves tasty food of good quality. Maintenance is poor; elevator has been out of order & the wi-fi is also out of order or frequently getting disconnected, during my last three stays. The room... More

When we travel yaounde this is where we lodge, the restaurant has an excellent carte with a mixture of african/european food that anyone can enjoy. Prices are fair and we can say tha is a value for money hotel, for those who would like to swim they have a nice swiming pool and terrace

About 30 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the Camrail station - traffic permitting. Reasonable hotel by local standards for a basic stopover on business. The air conditioning worked quite well in the bedroom and the bedroom was clean and suitable for a quick stay. Hot water took a while to arrive in the shower, but it worked... More

Stayed over for one night on my way to Douala. The staff were helpful enough, although the bookings clerk had clearly messed up the details of my reservation. The wifi wasn't working on the 4th floor so I had to go down to the lobby. The room itself was really basic. Very spartan. Towel (singular) and bed linen was not... More

The worst internet in the history of all my trips, the staff is so lethargic, over priced room service and long waiting times at the restaurant... Please try to avoid this Hotel. The only good thing is its closeness to the city centre.

The possitive aspect is its location. It is also very clean. Other than that services are not good in general. Internet does not work in the rooms, only in the main hall sometimes, only when there is not a lot of people around. For a business trip, this is terrible. No maps of the city available, nice and smiley personnel... More

This hotel is a good location were to stay. In the downtown of Yaounde it is perfect for a visit of the capital. The pool is nice but very small good to cool down but not big enough to swim. In general all not included services are expensive.

The hotel is well situated, fairly cheap price, needs improvements, the staff are warm, they speak mostly french and a little english. Small rooms, good location, close to ministeries and other political places.

Yes, the staff are very friendly and this counts for a lot, but otherwise this hotel is average at best. A lift that worked twice whilst I was there, grim lighting and decor on the upper floors, an incredibly poor value breakfast at XAF6000 and a shabby bathroom in my tiny room. Internet was challenging. I did sleep well so... More

Nice team and lot of smiles at the reception (but discreet request of a tip ...) Bar with nice staff and a nice mini terrace and restaurant at the back opening on the pool. The ground floor is nice. You also have a small shop for souvenirs (at tourist price, test your ability to bargain) During check in and check... More
