This hotel is reputed to be the best in Niamay. Well, I have a few reservations. The hotel needs renovation all over, the corridors to the rooms are rather dirty and badly kept, the rooms, if you get one facing the river, are not bad and so are the bathrooms, but nothing fancy and the price doesn't match the pretended quality. If this is the best Niger has to offer, there is a lot to be desired.
Food is acceptable, breakfast is good, but it is not included in the room price. A plus if you look at the breakfast buffet, a minus if you think that you are paying a 10% additional fee to your already high room price. Staff are decently trained and polite. The room service rapid enough not to call for any complaints.
The swimming pool is nice but, especially during week end, full of outsiders with zillions of kids, which makes it rather noisy.
At night they open a grill at the pool, which serves a rather limited selection of food of average quality. However, when the evening comes, not only mosquitos swarm but also prostitutes who approach you quite aggressively, actually more aggressively than the mosquitoes, making the dinner of those who are not interested almost unpleasant.
Well, in a capital city, albeit of a poor Sahelian country, one would expect something a bit better overall.
