This is the worst hotel I have stayed in my entire life. The rooms smell, the carpets are musty, the air is thick of dirt and one even fears for what one is possibly inhaling. To cap it, the hotel does not clean the rooms. AVOID AT ALL COST!!?

The hotel itself and the atmosphere is great, This hotel has one of the largest swimming pools I have seen, a hookah bar, and a life size chess set. The area that they really lack in is speedy service. When you order something be prepared to wait an hour or more to get it. For the prices that you pay...

I have never been to the Cote d' Ivoire before, and neither do I have any friends with first hand experience of this location either. So, before arriving here there was a certain amount of apprehension on my part. Arriving at the airport and going through Immigration and Customs was very straight forward, and speedy. The hotel.......could not have been...

I stayed at this gracious hotel while attending a conference in one of its many venues. It was a rare experience of convenience, luxury and efficiency. The rooms are spacious and cosy with superb Wi-fi and excellent satellite TV reception.

The view is excellent. Breakfast and food is high quality if you compare with others in Abidjan. The price is high, but you can stay very confortable in this hotel. Some persons speak English to help you. Excellent localization.

The room was a bit small, but compared to the building being a very old structure over 40 years old, it was nice and bright, attractive color combination and well maintained. The service was good, the linen and towels felt fresh, food was of high quality and a huge variety for breakfast. Above all, the staff were friendly

Great view, great service, but I was not impressed with the food! I liked that one could stay in the hotel : shopping, music, movie, bakery etc... It is alsotrue that I tried a single restaurant, and the others could be better.

You can dislike imposing architecture of Hotel Ivoire buildings, especially its huge tower overlooking Cocody area. But it's part of Abidjan heritage like Houphouet Boigny bridge or Treichville market. And hotel setting is quite interesting for residents. What's the best at L'Ivoire ? efficient staff, spacious and modern rooms, security controls, high quality breakfast ? Anyway it's one of the...

Beautiful setting, stunning views, exceptional foot print with gorgeous pool area. However the room standard in the Tower is below a 5 star Hotel. - See temperature and condition of furnishings.- The room is freezing cold. The AC cannot be adjusted even after multiple visits by the tech team. The high AC setting creates high condensation which in turn makes...
