This is 1 of the most charming hotels in Bamako. The view in the morning of the river is nothing short of magical. The food is fine too. However, there are a number of significant issues. I had a suite and my shower was broken. They replaced the shower head but it can not be used attached to the wall...

Very nice Hotel with a restaurant directly at the river Niger. Room cost 49000 CFA which is a good prize. Restaurant is very good too and the prizes are also OK for what is offered. Rooms - depending if you are in the main house or the new one near the restaurant. Both are nice and well decorated. In main...

I came to know about this restaurant from one of my Moroccan colleagues. I went there with few of my colleagues. We odered food at 9 pm. We were very much hungry. We waited till 10.20 pm for the food to be served. After long wait it was served at 10.30 pm. I were disappointed for such long delay. When...

The main strength of this hotel is the cozy restaurant by the Niger river. The food is also good, though pricy. The staff are very friendly. The hotel itself is average and some of the rooms have some moldy smell. The rooms in the "new" building on the river side are better. The shower does not have curtain, so the...

The hotel was nice and the staff friendly. The restaurant was located across the street but had a beautiful view of the river. As it was very hot, it was nice to have good air-conditioning. There was also a little boutique in the hotel where you could pick up souvenirs.The pool was also very nice - even though it was...

Spent a great week here while in town for work. I had a regular room which while on the smaller side was really comfortable and well appointed. Good AC, strong water pressure and really quiet. The internet in the room was so-so, strong enough for emails and some web browsing with a little bit of patience. There's a really nice...

We were visiting our daughter who is working an 8 hour drive away from Bamako in a very rural spot. We all stayed in the hotel for two nights to give her some much needed r and r. We arrived on the day there had been some violence in the city and it did indeed feel like a safe haven....

This small hotel is located on the south bank of the river Niger in Bamako. It is directly by the river, with open views from some of the rooms. At Bamako standards it is clean and well managed, and the restaurant on the river terrace is a great addition. I stayed for four nights on business and had no complaints...

Did great food right on the Niger River. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. They do a great pizza and steaks. The beer is cold and good wine is available on the menu. I would recommend it to people visiting Bamako.

Had good dinner in the restaurant on the terrace with fantastic view over Niger River. Hotel rooms are basic but nice. Mosquito nets are value added. Bathroom very basic but sufficient. Would not have expected such a nice place in Bamako. Staff very friendly.
