I stayed in an opera suite for two nights during a conference. The room was lovely, with great views of the lagoon, although the rest of the hotel felt a bit dated. The staff were generally helpful, although the service was slow at times. I dined at one of the restaurants on site, which was good if not spectacular.

I have just returned from 3 nights at the Sofitel Abidjan where I attended a conference, unfortunately against the backdrop of potential unrest in the country. I was allocated a comfortable, clean and suitably appointed room in the older section of the hotel. Unfortunately neither the safe (which wasn't even fastened to the wall) nor the minibar fridge were working....

I stayed here for a work function. The rooms were clean and everything functioned more or less as expected. The grounds are very pretty. There's hot water and the staff are extremely polite. I'm not sure how many speak English; the people I encountered did not. However, everything is outdated and pricey. The colors of the rooms are bright. It...

For someone whose bags did not arrive on the flight I had a very good experience checking into the Sofitel Abidjan - great staff - I was checked in by Michel - cool and helpful without any fuss - great facilities and great rooms! Feels functional but opulent.

As other reviewers pointed out, this hotel seems to be the only real option when it comes to top class accommodation in Abidjan. And they are very well aware of this. I have stayed in the smaller building (they also have a tower), in a room facing the city, which offered a nice view, but inferior to the view on...

This is the worst hotel I have stayed in my entire life. The rooms smell, the carpets are musty, the air is thick of dirt and one even fears for what one is possibly inhaling. To cap it, the hotel does not clean the rooms. AVOID AT ALL COST!!?

The hotel itself and the atmosphere is great, This hotel has one of the largest swimming pools I have seen, a hookah bar, and a life size chess set.

I have never been to the Cote d' Ivoire before, and neither do I have any friends with first hand experience of this location either. So, before arriving here there was a certain amount of apprehension on my part. Arriving at the airport and going through Immigration and Customs was very straight forward, and speedy. The hotel.......could not have been...

The view is excellent. Breakfast and food is high quality if you compare with others in Abidjan. The price is high, but you can stay very confortable in this hotel. Some persons speak English to help you. Excellent localization.
