Folks, keep in mind Niger is currently rated as the poorest country in the world, which means a five star hotel does not exist in Niamey - don't bother looking. The Gaweye is certainly popular with business travelers and is considered to be one of the safer, 'higher end' hotels. My room was in a sad state - carpet, walls... More

The hotel is one of the better ones in Niamey. The rooms are tidy, beds are comfortable and people are friendly. The food is good, but you need to speak with the cooks for how you like the meat cooked or the pizza's made. The biggest frustration is the internet. They need to ensure good quality. It drops out or... More

There are not many options in Niamey, apparently there's a Chinese hotel that has recently been built and it's supposed to be 5 star which I doubt but I did not get to see it. I stayed at the Gaweye hotel on a business trip for 2 nights. It is not a 4 star hotel and should likely be rated... More

The infra seems to be old but still it is well maintained considering the political circumstances of the country. Good pool area and pizza near the pool side is good. Break fast is usually good. Televisions needs a revamp.

Felt on edge at the hotel with little sleep. Security was light the first night and doubled the second. It was apparent that security depends on if there are dignitaries in house. Room did not cool down with the old air conditioning. Pool was dirty with a non working pump. In looking for a light snack at the boutique, they... More

This being my first visit to Niamey, I had no idea what to expect. Overall, the relatively large hotel seemed to have had its glory days which were long gone. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, however the room was old, had some damage in the bathroom and was not very clean. The hotel is located along the banks... More

The room and bed were done without the cleaning guy realizing something was wrong. Extremely noisy airco in the rom. Personnel overall all right. Food in the buffet... More

Well, when I last visited Niamey in 1995, the Gaweye was the premier business hotel. It seems not to have been updated since then. It is quite run down and the public areas are not very clean. The rooms, however, are adequately clean though carpeting is old and paint not fresh. The air-conditioning was working but the room temperature was... More

Staying a week at the Gaweye is not a nice experience. Now, what is true is that there has been some efforts to improve the place. But, the hotel remains old, outdated with most of the amenities not functioning properly. A major issue is that the AC does not work properly. There is no gym - a major drawback and... More
