I'm not here to bad mouth this property. Ibis fits its model, just with the normal challenges one faces operating a hospitality business in West Africa. If you need to stay in Plateau, and require a "modest" room rate, then you should consider staying here. Some of the staff, especially at reception and reservations, are thoroughly competent and very pleasant. Service staff and chamber maids are not blessed with the soft touch and attentiveness that Ibis guests have come to expect.
There is constant construction/work being done in the daytime hours, frequently in the tiny lobby and elevators; very noisy and annoying, but necessary, I am sure.
The rooms are EXTREMELY damp. Nothing is dry in them: not the towels, not the sheets, not the pillows, not the faux floor matting. Nothing. The central a/c drips constantly in the bathroom. The damp brings with it must and mildew, as do many places here in CIV.
The restaurant is fine; not great, but fine, if expensive. The lobby and tiny patio are not conducive for business meetings, or relaxation.
If you can afford it, stay at the Pullman or Novotel while in Plateau. Otherwise, head to Cocody-2 Plateau to be in an environment that isn't strictly business on weekdays, and a ghost town on weekends.
