I stayed at the Guest house in March 2013 and found it clean, peaceful and value for money. I am looking forward to my next stay in July 2013. Also try the wonderful sandwiches at the tuck shop of the hotel and their coffee is superb! Remember to freshen up on your French before your visit as the hotel staff have a limited knowledge of English. Whilst there, also do a tour of the museum, it is well worth it and gives an insight of the amazing work that Dr Albert Schweikert did. You can also visit their graves in this peaceful setting.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good, but if you tend to struggle to breath in the extreme heat, choose a room with an airconditioner for that little bit extra.

After having stayed a few nights in another hotel in Lambarene, I moved to the guesthouse which is on the premises of the Albert Schweitzer hospital, in fact a historical site as Schweitzer built his second hospital here, starting in 1924. In one of the old buildings, built in 1926 and renovated a few years ago there used to stay doctors and nurses, now it is adapted to suit tourists and visitors of the hospital. (A new hospital has been built higher on the grounds.) In the days I was here I had "real Africa travellors" (by car, by motor), Embassy officials, pilgrims and other interesting people as neihgboors in the guesthouse.
The rooms have no aircon, but the barack is built in such a way (west - east), with double roof and mosquito fit screens in all the windows, that it was amazingly cool. Every room has a toilet/shower cabin. 24/24 electricity.
If one wants one can inscribe for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant (refectoire) where the hospital staff that does not want to cook for themselves have their meals. (This building also is part of the historical site.) That gave very interesting and international discussions, in French but also in other languages - a relief after so much 'french'! Mind you, no alcohol is available here, and smoking not allowed in the restaurant!
The guesthouse where I stayed is called Case C / Maison C,
There also is a Case Bouka. No private facilities here, but while I was here nobody stayed in Case Bouka.
There also is a interesting museum on the premises - all about the old hospital.
Having spend almost over 3 weeks in Gabon, I found this one of the best price/quality places I have been - the other being Nyonie/Nyonye.
