“Excellent hotel for short or long stay”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

I had a work assignment in Bamako for a week, and the local office selected La Coccinelle for me. I could not have been more pleased. The hotel is a relatively small but does not lack for services.
My room was a full suite with a separate bedroom, very large and well equipped bathroom, small kitchenette with dishes , pots and pans, refrigerator, range, hot water kettle. Everything i needed to make simple meals when i was too tired to go out. There was also a comfortable sitting room with satellite TV. The sitting room and bedroom had separate split air conditioners.
The staff are extremely helpful and will do their best to respond to your every request. The pool was kept very clean and was at a very refreshing temperature for the heat in Bamako.
The adjoining restaurant was a limited but excellent menu and very gracious staff.
I always felt like I was staying with family more so than staying ina hotel.
The hotel is on a side street off Route de Koulikoro. Directly across Koulikoro there are a couple of grocery stores for simple meals, as well as beer and wine (to my recollection). There is also a fruit and vegetable market within a 100m of the hotel with a surprizing array of items.
On the back streets behind the hotel are a couple of small bush bars where you can have a drink in pleasant company (watch the mosquitos).
There is an ATM about a Km. down Koulikoro Rd., which works reliably, and several restaurants that are within a very short taxi drive.
My only negative point is the air quality. It seemed very dusty at times in the room and perhaps the air conditionewr filters needed servicing. However, this is almost in the midst of the Sahara so some dust can always be expected.
I would have absolutely no qualms about going back to the La Coccinelle and I recomend to wholeheartedly.
PS: The price was also extremely competative for that part of the world.

Room Tip: Get one close to the pool for early morning or late night swims.
