Laico El Farouk Hotel
Ranked #35 of 38 Hotels in Bamako
Reviewed 14 February 2009

stayed here first night and last day in Mali, granted this was the last time I got see western comforts like a TV, shower gel & etc but given this used to be a Kempinsky I was slightly disappointed

the room was average and was not clean (I had a dead bug next to the bathroom sink)

liked the lobby area the most (interesting decor) breakfast was ok, the "view" was ok, of the 6 hotels I stayed in Mali on this trip, this was not a memorable one but acceptable

Reviewed 16 November 2008

I had a reservation for Nov 16, 2008. Because some people attending the meeting 2 days earlier failed to show, he decided to penalize those of us who did show up by canceling all reservations and giving the rooms away on a "first come first serve" basis. The Reservations Manager was absolutely unhelpful, failed to help us out finding a room elsewhere and just hid in his office. He refused to give us a letter in writing explaining the situation or confirming the cancellation.

Do not go to this hotel if you do not know the city because you will be left on your own.
