I stayed at the Licorne during a ten day business trip in Abidjan. The place is peaceful, the proprietor helpful, and the local staff friendly and reliable. The room was large and super clean, and in comparison with the tired chains like Novotel, the price/quality relationship is infinitely better. The hotel is in a good location in 2 Plateaux, a prosperous area of the city with lots of restaurants, cafes and bars, and supermarkets. However Abidjan is a big city with bad traffic so you should check where you need to be before you decide which hotel to stay at.

The rooms are alright, but a bit stuffy. My room had only tiny windows. The real bad thing: The whole place smells from the old dog that hangs out everywhere as well as from cat's pee. I was very disappointed after what I'd read here and on Lonley Planet. The location is great though but next time I'll definitely go somewhere else.

I spent 2 nights at Le Griffon during a recent business trip to Cote d’Ivoire. The hotel is really a nice friendly little place, a welcome respite from the busy streets of Abidjan. It is not located in the CBD of the city, but in the suburb of Deux Platauex. There didn’t seem to be much around the place but there were a few eateries on the street outside, a pizzeria and a couple of Asian restaurants. The streets around there are not pleasant for walking around – lots of traffic, bad air, rubbish everywhere. I went for morning runs there but had to stick to the quiet residential side streets to avoid the traffic and exhaust.

There are only about 10 rooms in the place, so it is fairly quiet and homely. The owners are very friendly and will ensure that you have a great stay. My room was huge, complete with a sitting room, a huge bathroom, and an outdoor terrace. Amenities include AC, TV, and free Wifi (which only worked part of the time). The rooms are all decorated to a theme with lots of interesting furniture and wall hangings to give it some character. The place was clean and reasonably well maintained.

The on site restaurant serves French cuisine. The food was good at the dinner meals, however I found the breakfasts a bit basic. All the staff were friendly and ready to assist as needed. I would definitely recommend this place to all travelers passing through Abidjan. Although the location is not the best, it is a great little oasis from the city chaos.

Its small, it's not "flash" but it's got great decor, it's got great value and you always feel welcome. Definitely somewhere I feel comfortable and the balance of great food and welcoming hosts keepsake coming back.

The Licorne and Griffon are great hotels in a great location, II Plateau, near a variety of restaurants and grocery stores. The beds are great - firm mattresses and clean sheets, functioning A/C, wifi, and a good French restaurant. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, though they don't speak English. Laundry service is provided, and it is secure - none of my belongings were ever disturbed. I highly recommend it and would stay there again.

Room Tip: There is a wide variety in the size of rooms. At the Licorne, the upstairs rooms are larger. There are a couple suites. Room 2 has a great couch!
