    Business Stay

    Rooms are spacious enough for comfortable working. Staff is friendly and helpful. Internet was iffy as my room was a bit too far from the WiFi router.

    Okay hotel

    Hotel was just okay. Given the alternatives it is probably top 5 in the country but in terms of international standards, it’s really just okay. Breakfast isn’t worth the $20 either, wasn’t great.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It was a nice hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff. WiFi was was good. If you want to print anything, don't do it from the hotel as it is 500 CFA per black and white page. However, this is not a knock against this hotel, this is the same rate for the four hotels I've stayed at in Cotonou.
