Having been to many hotels across Africa as a travel journalist, I find Benin Royal Hotel very comfortable any time I visit Cotonou. The ambience, location, staff and everything about the place is so nice. I invite you to visit as well.

I always feel at home here, and I intend to stay longer. The hotel treats customers with the utmost elegance and politeness, from the front desk to the chef. Additionally, it features a wonderful pool, a bar, and beautiful executive standard rooms.

For the price, I was pretty happy with Royal Benin. The rooms are up-to-date design, with a good shower temperature/pressure and amenities like a mini-fridge, safe and kettle that are not always standard. I will admit the A/C did not really keep the room cool even at the highest setting. Wi-Fi depends - sometimes it worked and sometimes it just did not, so make sure you have roaming/local SIM. Otherwise, I slept fine in the room and (it is very quiet at night) and enjoyed the nice balcony. The elevator was REALLY slow, sometimes I would just give up on it and walk. Yes, I looked at the Novotel and Golden Tulip, but I did not read/hear anything to warrant spending 40% more a night. The staff spoke enough English to get by if your French, like mine, stinks. Very nice pool area with a barbecue/pizza grill aside from the regular restaurant. Breakfast is fairly continental - but the sweet and savoury pastries were really well-done, but don't expect much else. The food from the hotel was also pretty good. Other comments - Pretty central location, but lot of construction/torn up roads around the hotel. Zinsou Center is just a few minutes walk away and the artistan market only a little further on foot.

The hotel has professional staff with a good number that can speak English. The breakfast variety is good and the place is clean. They allowed us an extra 2 hours for late check out which we appreciated. I would definitely go back.

This was one of my best stays in Benin after staying at Ibis and Hotel du Lac. The hotel offers a variety of rooms. Some rooms have Jacuzzi and other basic rooms. I was checked into a room with a Jacuzzi and i was super excited. Sadly, the Jacuzzi was faulty and i couldn't get the experience. Breakfast was ok, as i have come to realise breakfast in French countries is a bit boring. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The pool is located on the 5th floor and you are able to get a good view of the city from there. I will recommend a stay in this hotel as it is very clean and reasonably priced.
