Hotel Le Silmande is a good representation of what can be expected in Ouagadougou for over 100 USD room. Its particularity is to be located next to a dam and the largest park of the city. A large swimming pool and tennis court are available. Rooms are old, poorly furnished and with a bad humidity smell. The restaurant is average, not delicious, just ok, with a very slow service. In general, staff is ok, but slow and somehow inefficient, however according to the days, you can find one very nice and helpful. After discussion with one of the nicest staff, I understood that due to financial problems and management, most of staff are not anymore motivated.
After a long day and on weekends, it can be pleasant to have a calm moment at the pool. Otherwise it is a bit out of city center.
