“Excellent, I have no reason to go anywhere else!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

When reviewing hotels in Douala, you have to understand the relativity at play. I have been travelling in and out of Douala for business for close to a year now and during my first couple of trips I stayed at 2 of the top 3 rated hotels and I was dismayed!

Star Land Hotel is fantastic compared to whatever else is available in Douala, and is also relatively reasonably priced. The hotel is small and still new and is set up very beautifully. The staff are friendly and eager to ensure your absolute comfort. Guests who speak little or no french (like myself) may experience some difficulty in the restaurant depending on the waitstaff attending to them, though majority can communicate effectively in both french and english.

The hotel is conveniently located in Bonapriso, a short drive to the airport and the center of Douala city. There are a number of good restaurants within close reach.

All in all, the Star Land Hotel is an excellent choice when travelling to Douala.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors (3rd floor and above) on the east side have a good view overlooking the terra...

I stayed here for a few weeks on business. The hotel is quite new so everything is currently in good condition, the hotel is kept very clean. The hotel is located in Bonapriso which has a lot restaurants considered the safest part of Douala.

The service at the hotel is a little below standard, the food takes a long time to be served for example, but the staff are generally friendly and try to please.

The swimming pool and gym are very small, but at least there is some kind of facility. Wifi is available but can be intermittent. The food is of good quality but the menu is limited.

In summary this is a good hotel to stay at for a business trip in Douala.

A work colleague and I went to the hotel for Sunday brunch today and found the hotel spotlessly clean, modern, functional and well priced. The pool area is very clean, brilliant service and the food & drinks were very pleasant. I imagine that the other so called "Good" hotels in Douala need to be very worried indeed as this hotel will quite easily take all there customers within a very short period of time.

Stayed at this hotel last weekend for a wedding, and had a wonderful time. The staff was very courteous and professional, from the Bellman to the receptionist and the cleaning lady.
The property is super clean, and the pool is sparkling. My favourite spot in the hotel is the terrace; though the view is 'Douala', the layout is excellent for relaxation.

If you are in Douala for any reason, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms have a better view

I did not stay here but a group of us went to the roof bar. It's a little tricky to find so get the helpful staff to guide you. Nice location and ambiance. I would recommend this hotel to colleagues visiting Douala. The hotel is new clean and modern, in a handy location between the centre and the airport.

I traveled to Douala in October and heard about this new hotel and decided to try it. I was not disappointing at all. Customer service was top-notch. The bedroom was fantastic compared to other hotel bedrooms in Douala. The food was very nice and the service at the restaurant was good. Breakfast buffet was very good as well. I was even upgraded to a Junior Suite at the same price for 2 out of my three nights at this hotel. The roof top cabaret was something I have not seen at similar hotels.
In all honesty, I am of the believe that this hotel is by far the best in Douala.
