Sunnyvale, California
Reviewed December 8, 2016

The Hilton appears to be the primary business hotel in Yaoundé, and demands a tariff commensurate with its presumed status. A room in this property runs 2-4 times the cost of an equivalent room of the 2nd and 3rd best hotels in town. The Hilton claims to be a 5 star property, but overall it is more in line with...

The Hilton Yaoundé is most certainly one of the finest hotels in central Africa. The rooms are superb, the bed is luxurious, the shower is hot and strong, and the staff are professional and friendly. But . . . sadly, any great hotel is as good as its weakest link, and I had four poor experiences: Firstly, to have my...

Well, been here twice on business. What to say, the staff is friendly, the rooms are good, though i wouldn't say five star quality (in comparison to the other hotels in Yaounde, from what i've seen, it is five star). The breakfast is good, especially the fruit selection. The grill is really nice especially the shrimp, i would argue i've...

I checked out of the hotel after staying there for more than a month. I was not impressed with the hotel, however it is the best option in the city.

As this is the main luxury hotel of Yaounde, and, according to reviews on Tripadvisor and other sources, close to the only one, one can expect complacency and distances apart from perfection.
