Be careful if you get what you wish for. I was originally booked at the relatively new Radisson Blu when a room became available here. After a wonderful pick-up at the airport by the hotel driver Bobo, everything was downhill from there. The rooms are OLD and small. The furniture, walls and carpet badly stained both in the rooms themselves...

Stayed for a few nights with my wife and son. Having been to a couple of other hotels in ABJ, this is probably the best in a city that surprisingly does not have a lot of choice given its size and relative perceived wealth. The hotel was renovated in 2011 and the main lobby area and rooms are passable. There...

The room was excellent, the hotel is beautiful and finished with high quality. Room service was very good.

I had a very enjoyable stay at this property. Corteous and professional staff. At the Link Bar, specifically Mr. Nimba Prince. He is very professional, attentive to his clients which is a reflection of the hotel and its management. He takes his craft seriously which is very refreshing to observe and experience. Sunday brunch is very rich in choices and...

The hotel is an institution in a city that does not offer a lot of institutions or attractions. Set with towering views in landscaped gardens, with one side overlooking a most amazing swimming pool, the hotel is slightly outside the main business parts of town. It is dated, but charming, with style; great public spaces, fantastic breakfast served both inside...

A lot of people really like the Sofitel - I admit I wasn't that happy. However, I have not tried any other hotels in Abidjan, perhaps it's the best in town. I found it merely decent. The room was very small and could have used some reservation. The layout was odd with a very narrow long table along one wall....
