“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

We used this hotel for a recent meeting. It's a bit tired looking from the outside, but the staff were brilliant and couldn't have done more to help us during. Really professional and incredibly helpful and friendly - even lending us personal mobiles to make emergency calls abroad with, and managers making arrangements for us while actually hospitalised!...Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

The rooms at this hotel consists of a bedroom with a separate sitting/kitchen area. The inclusion of a refrigerator is a nice extra touch as I was able to store juices and snacks. The wifi connection was great and always available. The bed was comforatble but a bit small. The room orientation with the toilet not in the bath room but near the front door was awkward and inconvenient.

The hotel is in a convenient location with bakeries, restaurants and ice parlours nearby. Ease of access to businesses is a great selling point for this hotel.

The waiters and staff members are very friendly and helpful. The hotel feels cramped especially the corridors, but the rooms are actually nice with a cooking area and T.V lounge. The beds are also comfortable and the rooms are clean. The food is excellent! Just within walking distance you can locate a number of restaurants, the market and other shops as the hotel is in town. What I found strange was that you have to pay for your breakfast. The room fare is only bed without breakfast.

My normal hotel was full and I had to look for another place to stay, I found the La Falaise in Akwa, to my surprise I was upgraded to one of the executive rooms and found the hotel to be quite good. I had a nice hot shower, Wifi access from my room, a TV with the sport channels, and a very nice bed and mattress. And the view from the 6 th floor is also very nice if facing the harbour.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the higher floors, I was staying on the 6th floor you have a nice view of the harbour...

Nice hotel in downtown Douala. The food is excellent and the buffet widespread. The air conditioning works fine. They are upgrading the rooms but the hotel still has an 80's look. The beds are firm and linen is changed everyday and the rooms cleaned as well. The WiFi works perfectly in all the rooms. The hotel is very safe. Right outside, you will find air-conditioned taxis on a per hour or day basis. Stay here during my frequent visits to Douala. Highly Recommend.

Room Tip: Choose the room on the higher floors and if you need a table and chair to work--let them know in adv...

Careful that there are two hotels La Falaise;this one in Akwa and another in Bonanjo. The Akwa Falaise has a great central location. The central location means there is a lot of traffic nearby but the rooms are generally quiet and clean. Rooms are set up as 2-room appartement with a small kitchen block, so you get a lot of space and excellent value for money. Go for corporate rates.
The restaurant is nothing special but you can find eateries nearby that are much better anyway.
The place is being slowly refurbished so stay away from rooms near areas works are undertaken.

This is a review of Hotel Falaise, hwich is close to the Residence Falaise but not the same building.

Hotel Falaise is a good place to stay for 35.000 Fcfa, which is about 50 dollars. For the money you will find a hot shower, really clean rooms, which are rather simple, but there is free internet access in the rooms. All this belongs to things one does not find easily in the region unless one goes for an expensive place. The restaurant is nice East block style and a bit out of fashion, but the food is good, and the service is correct.
Then staff of the Falaise is very helpful.
