I had to visit Bamako for business purposes, so I cannot review that much about the city, but I can certainly review the hotel. Pros: Location, next to the monument to Modibo Keita, one of the principal attractions of the city, close to the Administrative city, just in case you are there for businesses, nice swimming pool, decent food and rooms were quiet and clean...Oh! and the internet connection was fair, considering the limitations of the country. Besides that, the staff on the dinning room were always extremely helpful and kind. Cons: just a few: the staff in the reception are hardly half as helpful and kind as the rest of the hotel, which I find it strange, given the fact that they are the face of the hotel! Despite they speak English they refuse to try to speak with me the moment they know I understand a little bit of French!; besides that it is a bit far for the nice restaurants in town. And of course, I found it expensive...but there is no many options around, so better to pay a little more and be safe, than try to safe a couple of bucks and find unpleasant surprises
