“An African haven in Bamako”
Reviewed 1 April 2008

Le Djenne is an oasis in Bamako. When so many hotels are tryng to imitate the Western style, this hotel, run by the formidable Animata Traoré, sticks proudly to African traditions. Traoré is well respected for her writings and her fight on behalf of African culture and women, and you can feel her passion in the place. Delightfully decorated by African artists, using fabrics and traditional styles, it has a leafy inner courtyard, with comfortable chairs dotted everywhere. The rooms have fourposter style mosquito nets and traditinal throws and hangings. The plumbing can be interesting but the staff are a delight. It is in the very nice area known as hippodrome where, on a Sunday, we danced with the local women in various wedding ceremonies in the street. The nearby restaurant run by the same people, Al Toro, is delicious especially for their selection of juices. Only tip is take your breafast table out of the restaurant and into the little courtyard if you can as the breakfast room is dark and dull. If you do not need a pool this has to be the best value in the city - about 45 euros a night, suites a little more. A real pleasure.
