Relais Saint Jacques
Ranked #14 of 39 Yaounde B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Don't expect to find the luxe of a Hilton hotel.
They do it the Cameroonian way, with a limited service and old rooms. The restaurant serves quit OK food, but the hotel is centraly located so you can find nice restaurants and eating facilities in the area.
Buggs and mosquitoes are common in the rooms, as well as powercuts and water shortages.
The hotel is situated near the busstation in the Mvog area, 200cfa for a shared taxi and it will take only one min. to get you there.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled with friends

Not really ready for international visitors. Very mediocre quality of room (noisy, ragged, not exceptionally clean, occasional water outages, etc.). Service even weaker: only one person spoke any English at all, bartender was sullen and resented getting me a beer at 5 p.m., desk clerk couldn't or wouldn't book a reliable taxi (a huge problem in Yaounde generally). I was in better accommodation in Maroua, Garoua, and even Kaele. Consider this place a last resort, if you can't find anyplace else.

Room Tip: For a bit more money, get a suite in the back--it should be quieter.
