The confort of the room is basic, but everything is well functioning and the rooms are clean. The hotel is located around 10 minutes from the city center, and borders the dam. What really makes a difference is the pool area, which is truly beautiful. You have the impression to be sitting in an oasis of tranquility and beauty, while...

Authentic hotel in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Nicely located next to the water. Big and nice pool. Good price/quality, comfortable rooms and friendly service. The restaurant menu offers a lot of choice.

A decent hotel just 10 minutes drive from CBD area of Ouagadougou. The rooms are a bit small, however, enough for a business traveler. The hotel offers free WiFi and in room TV services though your choice of channels are limited. Staff are nice and welcoming. Not too expensive on the pocket too. The poolside is a decent place to...

I love staying here when I''m Burkina. It's an experience in itself,and the owners are lovely. Really should not be missed. Only trouble would be with internet, but I think they are working on it. Owners are so friendly and well informed. If you want to be a business person with lots of alone time and luxury, this isn't for...

Stayed here on nights 1 and 9 of 3-week adventure throughout West Africa. Quite luxurious compared to bush camping and other outposts. Our first room on first floor was very small (two twins pushed together) but adequate. Our second room on second floor was much larger with comfortable double bed. Lovely grounds, unique furnishings, friendly rescue dogs, fast internet. Our...

Winding down 16 days on the Voodoo Trail through Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso, this was the perfect place to end our stay. Comfortable, peaceful, relaxing and quite delightful. An eccentric blend of vintage furnishings, big game trophy heads and original local art. Plenty of hot water. Comfy bed. Good internet connection. A pool, good food, great service, and just...

We had an excellent stay in this cross between a luxury hotel and a quaint b&b. Pauline (one of the owners) was always around and super helpful. From local hints to stomach remedies :) She even awoke early to personally make sure our breakfast was served at 5am, when we had to get an early start. We switched to this...

I travel a lot. Hotel Ricardo is a home away from home, a unique blend of the exquisite and exotic tastes of it's owners, who are always there to welcome a dusty traveller from the rural villages and roads of Burkina, or the filmmakers, scientists and bureaucrats from our global village. The restaurant is exceptional; the lobby is a fascinating...

Based on the comments below and recommendations, I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It is a little bit far from the center of the city, but the car ride to the hotel is not bad. The relaxing environment totally overweighs the distance from the city center. This was the second time for my stay in Ouagadougou. I stayed...
