Well, Today is my second day at Hotel Kaloumn ( after having disgusting time at Grand Hotel Central ( I wont recommend that Grand Hotel to anyone). Reception: was good with warm wellcome, the front office manager speak English and he gave me his business card as well as offer of his assistance ( very nice indeed), Room; I am living at the standard room which is good, decorated well, A/C works properly , TV is working well ( the default language of TV is Chinese) there are tea and coffee on the table, and 4 bottles of water. The bathroom equiped with shower, I liked the decoration( very good), Food: I am here during Ramadan time and I enjoyed the Ramadan buffet, They have special sea food menu, I recommend that menu to the sea food lovers)( very good), Facilities: Gym was pretty clean, and equipped well, BTW if you want to use the pool you should use your own sleepers ( anyway I mark it as good) Staff: polite ( Their manner is polite and gentle ), the only weak point is =》 only few people can speak English, but they all want to help you. ( Ok) Location: Nice, quite secure, ( very good). Note: Do not visit the city centre at after 9 pm. Transportation ; if you come from airport, arrange the hotel bus ( the taxis might charge you extra [ around 20 usd]). For city trip please ask the reception to call a taxi for you. There is no taxi meter, so you should agree the taxi fare in advance. Note: This is a no-smoking hotel. And smoking allowed only at front yard. @ Kaloum hotel. Thank you guys, you changed my Guinea experience. Sorry I can't share the picture of my room as my things are all over the room( I enjoy my privacy).…
A new hotel in the heart of the downtown Conakry! Location is the best if you have business to do in downtown it will save you time and the hassle of driving in a traffic jam. The hotel it self look nice and clean.if you care about a shower pressure like me this the best shower head pressure ever in Conakry. The restaurant buffet is very good and service can be better but nothing to complain about.The only things I don’t really like are the beds not being comfortable for a big hotel like that they could have done better. They have a shuttle bus to and from the airport. That being said enjoy your stay in Conakry!!!
This is a poorly run hotel. Staff are a mixed bag of professionals - and unprofessionals. I understand that English is not the lingua franca here, but some basic knowledge is required to handle requests from hotel guests who do not speak French. It took me a good hour to order a drink to the room because staff could not understand English or had no product knowledge. Worst still, leadership and management is conspicuously basement. The owners of this hotel needs to find a GM that is pro-active, does his walkabouts and trains staff. For now, I would urge all business travelers to stay at the Sheraton. Kaloum cannot hold a candle to it.
Just One Word: Excellent the perfect service, the impeccable staff, the beautiful rooms. I visited a lot of countries, and I can honestly say that you have nothing to envy to foreign countries I highly recommend
