The rooms are great, the staff is professional and very helpful, and the food and drinks are the best. The best for me is the setting of the place which, smack in the middle of Bamako, day or night is like a little slice of peaceful paradise.

This is a great place to stay and a great place to eat. It feels like an upscale boutique hotel! And yet has very reasonable prices. Great rooms with carefully chosen details (like really nice showers, beds and linens), cute little pool, and some of the best food in town. I don't know if there could be better value anywhere!

I had a wonderful Sunday morning brunch at this restaurant. I arrived at 11 Am when it opened and was greeted by the manger. They have paid great attention to detail, in the table settings, and even in the music. personally, I believe there is nothing better to hear on a Sunday morning brunch than American jazz and rhythm and...

Comme chez soi is one of my favorite places in Bamako. We stayed at the hotel for several days when we first arrived in Bamako in Dec 2015/Jan 2016 and were not at all disappointed. Tucked away on a side street, the hotel is always calm and relaxing. Breakfasts were a highlight! Since then, we regularly eat at the restaurant... More

I stayed at the hotel in September 2015 (the outside bungalow) and ate several times at the restaurant. The bungalow was very comfortable with large "walk-in" shelves for your clothes and a large bathroom. The comfort is simple and I would say basic but somehow it does the trick. The roof being of straw, with the humidity it smells a... More

Had the most amazing experience at this restaurant. Whilst only small they are big with personal service. We were served by Robetto who after taking our order brought out a never ending supply of free items. Whilst waiting for the main course we were given a glass of champagne, followed by french bread and hor durves. This was just something... More

I had: Starter: Chicken teriyaki brochettes with peanut sauce (oh my god that sauce was really good) Main course: Spinach and Feta pie served with lettuce and balsamic vinaigrette (light and delicious) Desert: Brownie (HEAAAVVVEEENNNN) Every single dish looked and tasted heavenly good. I would definitely rate 5/5 if the service... More

There is a a couple of reasons why Comme Chez Soi is ranked 1st on Trip Advisor. The first is it is very well priced and located, almost half the price of other similar sized and rated hotels. Secondly it is very clean, well managed and has a lovely pool. Third it has a very good restaurant, although separately managed... More

Comme Chez Soi is a wonderful refuge from the chaos and rigor of navigating Bamako, and a real treat after a week en brousse. I've been a guest many times since 2010 and it always provides a comfortable friendly place to rest well and recharge. I direct a non-profit project in Mali and CCS works well for me when I... More

It’s my 4th time in Le Comme Chez Soi and I’m sure that this will not be my last time. The rooms are very basic but you will have an AC, warm shower, free breakfast ( Coffee or thee, juice, bread, egg, jam and a yogurt) and free WIFI. They also have a nice restaurant with good food and nice... More
