“not to bad”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

for a West African hotel it is pretty good the rooms are clean and comfortable but very small the restaurant is good with a good selection of meals . All the staff were very friendly and helpful and you can not beat the location right in the center of town 5 minutes to the airport.

For the cost of U.S. Dollars 175 the hotel is not great. But choices in Ouagadougou are limited. The airport of Ouagadougou is located in the center of the city, and the hotel is not far from it, with a taxi costing 3 or 4 USD.

Room Tip: pool side (toward the back) was quiet except for the loudspeaker from morning prayers around 5 am th...

I stayed here in December 2012 with 4 other business collegues. The rooms are acceptable by West African standards - clean, bed firm and bathroom fine. Aircon was noisy in all 5 rooms so appears not to be a once off issue. Pool was wonderful. Breakfast is ok, but honestly you're better off going across the road to Cappachinos and eating there. This hotel is OK for a one nighter, but can't say I'd be returning in a hurry.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the pool. Main road side is noisy night and day.

Great location with everything around you- coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets etc. Rooms are smallish and breakfast hall is unkempt. Reception is nice and polite. Some rooms have street and airport sound coming into your room all thru night. So ask for a quieter room. Okay value for money.

Let's start with the rooms we can qualified them as acceptable for Africa, but are not worth what they charge you!

The breakfast is over expensive and the restaurant is terrible.


It's definitely not the best hotel in town, and will only comeback there if all they others are fully booked.

Stayed one night at the hotel.

Pool clean and air conditioning worked well.

Minor fit/finish issues but normal for the area.

Lots of street vendors/beggars outside hotel. The security guard tried to give me a counterfeit $5 bill.

Room Tip: Splendid 2 Tower is newer.

The Splendid is a functional hotel located in the city center. Rooms are clean, A/C works, great water pressure. A little dated, carpet is worn, but it is quite satisfactory. The restaurant is adequate but there is a very nice coffee shop/cafe across the street (Le Cappuccino) which serves light meals and coffee as well as ice cream and pastries.
Pool looked inviting but water was pretty cloudy.
Overall the Splendid is a good choice when in Ouaga, nothing luxurious, but certainly adequate.
Price may be negotiable if you book in advance or have a local contact to negotiate.

Room Tip: First floor (one story up from lobby) will help you avoid waiting for elevator.
