We arrived from New Zealand in November and Hotel Koniambo has been "home" for the last 11 weeks and possibly the next two as well.
Built 4 yrs ago, Hotel Koniambo is comfortable, clean and well presented. The staff from the groundsman to room service ladies and receptionists are friendly and helpful. The receptionists have good English, (though it is helpful to greet in French). My husband and I have an airconditioned duplex mezzanine apartment with a kitchenette... (1 of 8).
We have not used the restaurant which is very popular locally for lunches and dinner.
The lead up to Christmas was a little noisy with year end parties, but it is usually very quiet. I rarely hear the aircraft that service Kone 4 times a week. The airport is directly opposite the hotel.
Yes, we had a water cut in December. The water pump supplying all Kone was out of action for two days, but that is life. Internet connection is a little slow at times, but I have no complaints. I love the tropical gardens and the huge mountain range past the airport. Kone is a warm 2.5 km walk away.
I would recommend Hotel Koniambo to friends and family.
