Looks like the Radisson Group forgot or did not think it was necessary to train the check in staff in Bamako on the finer ways to serve customers. My check in staff reminded me just how cheap a rate i got on the internet, and then gave me a poor room. The next day, the check in staff (or were...

I'm not a big fan of high-end chain hotels, but for a longer-term stay, the Radisson is a great place to stay in Bamako. The staff is superb, they will attempt to accommodate any reasonable request. There are lots of weekly and weekend events, including African music nights by the pool and salsa. The gym is has a range (though...

I spent two nights on a business trip- the security is pretty tight after the attack last year. The hotel is what you expect it to be in terms of facilities- I wish the breakfast crew would be ready earlier and keep it down in the kitchen, in the morning you want nice and quiet, not loud banging and laughing.

The Radisson Blu may not be "very good" by international standards, but it does have some advantages when staying in Bamako. The first one is excellent security. The hotel has made this a priority since the bombing here a few years back. The other advantages include a good gym, pool, and spa. One of the drawbacks is the main restaurant...

My first visit to Radisson Bamako, the hotel and staff are very friendly. The buffet menu as 'ok'... The major reason for the 'average rating' is that the hotel rates are extremely expensive in return for the value of what you get!

If you must go to Bamako, I would recommend this hotel. It is very nicely done and updated to a point. Security to get into the courtyard that gives you access to the lobby is guarded by a 15' high gate and all luggage must pass through metal detectors. How well that is done I really can't tell. Some weird...
