If you’re looking for a place near the Airport in Cotonou to work and stay over for a couple of days, this is a good place.
The hotel is in a quiet street with very nice rooms with a touch of ethnic chic named after African tribes and towns. The “Dogon” being particularly nice. Rooms with aircon and without. You choose. Very clean.
Not many rooms (11), not too many guests, just right. One drawback, no restaurant but you can order food through the lobby and 3 restaurants 5 minutes walk away. Simple breakfast but Ok in the patio protected by a small Banyan tree. Small garden around
Cotonou’s beaches 5 minutes away. Staff helpful.

Thank Nicolaas H

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wonderful and warm place to stay, feel at home, in an authentic african style and design. Typical rooms, with bathroom, air conditioners, several living rooms, garden, business center and lovely associates. A family style environment and the chef will love to serve you the best dishes you'll be expecting. All this in the most residential area, quite, safe and close to the airport, the beaches...in Cotonou Patte d'Oie ... more   less
