It is souless place. But it is typical for many Arican middle level places. Breakfast was good. Swimming pool is good for swimming 30m but the water wasnot clear as there are plenty of trees around. Suprmarket is on walking distance but it is in the middle of nowhere unless it is close to your office. On morning weekends there asome people running on Bulvar not far from hotel. It is popular on weekends for wedding parties to make pictures in the garden around so you can have some good shots.

Room tip: Side of swimmimg pool gives you a good view and less sunny.

We stood waiting to check in while the two men behind the counter occupied themselves with other tasks. Eventually, I heard, "Passport." I looked up and saw one of the men holding out his hand. I gave him my passport. Without saying a word, he looked up my reservation, then handed me my key, my passport, and a slip of paper with the wi-fi password.

Welcome to the Hotel Massaley.

The room was drab, with about 10% of a roll of toilet paper balanced on the back of the toilet because the holder was long broken. The twisted hangers in the closet could perhaps be described as an attempt at modern art. The wi-fi was off my first night, but got switched after some discussion with the front desk in the morning. Don't expect to get useable bandwidth after 7am, but you can stream video at 3 in the morning.

Breakfast was thoroughly uninspired. The coffee was sometimes drinkable, especially if there was milk. However, when an item ran out on the buffet, it did not come running back in - I waited 45 minutes one morning until the fruit salad finally came at the same moment as my ride.

A redeeming feature was the pool, which was clean, quiet, and refreshing.

This is a hotel you stay at because you have a need to be in that part of town for work. Otherwise, there is nothing interesting nearby, and nothing attractive about the hotel.

Transport in Bamako taxis is slow, hot and dusty. We had a week in Bamako, with several meetings each day, most of which were in the Commune IV area, in North Western Bamako. This is where Hotel Massely is situated.

The hotel is relatively new, and well maintained. The rooms are spacious, with excellent baths, and water, electricity, air conditioning and elevators worked all the time. The hotel has a good sized pool, well maintained and little used. The restaurant is not very popular, there were very few guests, but basic meals are served on request. Breakfast is OK, but not fancy.

wifi is available throughout the hotel, but weak, which is the case everywhere in Bamako. If you are there for business, the best is to get a local SIM card and set up your smart phone as a personal hotspot to feed your laptop.

About the most dullest place we've ever been. Boring, sterile, and feels uninhabited, which a lot of the hotel is -- on the other side of the pool, building closed. Utterly bland in every way, except the pool where the water looks like it could spawn life. Restaurant food overpriced, wretched and with limited menu. But, you'll have to eat here as the hotel is located near to absolutely nil commercial activity. Another hotel nearby (a Laico) has been requisitioned by the militar and sealed off with barbwire perimeter. Staff utterly useless. Cabs camped out by door, pounce to take advantage of hotel's poor location.

Stayed for five nights during course of volunteer assignment with an NGO. Unpretentious room with refrigerator and workable Wi-Fi. Toilet worked well and plenty of hot water in shower. Rooms well cleaned daily. Air conditioner worked well. Shelf space for working, big bench for suitcase, closet and storage shelves to be avoided in room I occupied. Generally quite location and hotel. Had some pounding one night that sounded like someone removing a wall somewhere. Hotel bar has variety of beers and alcohol. Breakfast offers choices from buffet. Dinner menu in French, food portions generous but plain. Staff courteous, only desk persons speak much English. Unless you speak French or Baramka, TV incomprehensible.

Room tip: Ask for room with balcony, then you can open doors for ventilation.
