“Great backpackers' place”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

It might have to do with the fact I travelled Ghana, Togo, and Benin before arriving at this place. I've seen many 'hotels' in these countries that are broken down more than this 'backpackers' joint. When I arrived here after 18 hours of bus ride from Cotonou, I liked it right away. The garden inside is nice, and the room, though not fancy, bedding and sheets were nicest I've had in all of west africa. Of course there will be much better hotels, but in this kind of price range, I think it's the best place to be at. I kick myself I only had one night's stay here. Wi-fi works very fine which was refreshing change, and when I checked out early morning to catch a bus, hotel staff came outside and walked few blocks to help me get a taxi. I've been disappointed by many hotels in west africa, but this one I do recommend.

Nice garden. Wifi and airco worked well. Staff was friendly. Location is a bit of an issue, but most taxi drivers know the place. Good restaurant.
We booked a tour to Nazenga via Couleurs d'Afrique. Friendly Guillaume (same management as hotel) came to the hotel to discuss the possibilities. We can recommend them too.

Pavillon Vert reminded me of West-Africa in the late 1990’s. The bath room had seen better days, the mattresses were thin and worn out, and the (old) AC was noisy. There's definitely a lot of better options in Ouaga. Tripadvisor insists on writing over 200 characters. Let me add that Burkinabe are some of the nicest people in West-Africa ...

Excellent place for overlanders who are coming to Ouagadougou to acquire visas, clearly not for somebody who is looking for 5-star comforts or service.

Rooms are decent and clean, sheets clean. WiFi works well. There are plenty of staff hanging around who can help you to get a taxi, to wash your car, etc. Their own restaurant/bar is worth to try out, delicious meals and breakfast or just for a drink. Try their Spanish omelette.

Recommended.

The hotel is quite close to the center (15 minutes walking), and the garden inside is very relaxing after a day in the caotic Ouagadougou. The rooms are fine (nothing fancy), I had to fight 20 minutes with many mosquitos but at the end I menaged to sleep safe under the provided net. The bar/restourant is adjusted for the taste and the wallet of the many occidental tourist that you can find there, but it's nice to spend an evening eating there and sharing experiences with other tourist. The basic double room is around 8000 CFA but it's quite cheap considering the high prices that ouagadougou has respect to the rest of Burkina.

It's a little paradise in the middle of a bustling city... (if you're a backpacking kinda person) nice little garden, small but cozy rooms and friendly staff. It's a good place to make friends if you travel solo and to get the latest news on where to go! If you need a guide ask at the reception for Amadou Dicko (to take you up north to Dori and Gorom-Gorom also for camel treks) The restaurant is delicious but serves mainly western influenced food (if you've been on the road for some time, it's a real treat) otherwise there is a local market right across the street where good and cheap local food can be found as well as a gas station that sells some snacks and water. It's a fair price for what you get (I can only talk about the rooms with fan and shared facilities).

The ground floor rooms were really dark and mosquito infested. It didnt seem very clean to me.
The bar staff however were really friendly and the Zebou steak they serve is delicious. Sadly, no local food available on their menu.

The courtyard garden is lovely.
