How can a previous reviewer possibly state that "service is slow" - some people should stay at home or spend $250 at Le Mercure perhaps. I can tell you that for anyone traveling to Africa, you will never forget your stay at Hotel Cote Sud in Lome. The place is spotless - everywhere - and is a museum of French Togolese architecture, from the front gate to the reception to the beautiful rooms and second floor terrace balcony. Everyone at the hotel is wonderful and I felt completely safe and relaxed here. The location of the hotel is extremely interesting - you are right in the middle of things, an easy and fascinating walk to the sea, to the market, to the main roads where you can catch a motorcycle transport to anywhere in the city. Very special mention must be made of the owner, M, Didier Massart, who should be Honorary French Consul to West Africa, if not the next President of the Republic, for his knowledge, openness, and ability to share French culture with the world. If that weren't enough, it happens that Didier is a magnificent host and chef. I used to be a French professor, and I learned so much about France and France's roles in Africa during my stay at Hotel Cote Sud. The cuisine at the hotel is superlative; by the chef's own confession, his cuisine is not meant to be "nouvelle" or trendy, but just down to earth delicious French cooking infused with a profound understanding of his native France and his adopted Togo. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay here and look fwd very much to visiting again.
