    Strong internet

    Clean room but hallway was smelly. The food was decent but expensive. Service was just ok in general. I especially had excellent service from Beh who manages the restaurant. Housekeeping was aggressive with cleaning, knocking despite the “do not disturb sign” until the door was opened. The cleaning wasn’t thorough either as the same three long strands of hair remained on my shower wall throughout my stay. The internet was excellent. There’s not much to do in the area after 5pm or on weekends and I was discouraged from walking on my own at these times. Overall, nice hotel though I would stay in a more interesting part of time next time

    Avoid the hotel shuttle!!!

    Nice hotel rooms and design, good breakfast, nice outdoor area and gym and pool. What you would expect for the price. However, the hotel bar is about the slowest bar in Africa. Serving a beer consistently takes 15 minutes. You need to ask 3times, they say its coming and continue to do other things like pottering around on the computer. The hotel shuttle however is problematic. It left 10 minutes late, and then despite staff telling me it would go directly to the airport it went to collect passengers at other hotels. After more than an hour on a sturdy evening we were still not at the airport and I had to walk the last km to the airport because the bus got stuck and I was not going to miss my flight. what should be a 40 minute ride became an hour and a half. So get a taxi and avoid the shuttle

    Nice hotel in business district of Abijdan

    Nice hotel, mostly good service (one forgotten order at the restaurant), and very nice rooms and pool. Convenient if you want to stay in Plateau, the business district of Abidjan. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

    Everything. The place is very clean. Staff members are very professional, friendly, helpful and well client-orienters. The buffet for breakfast was delicious. We (2 adults and 3 children) stay for 8 days. We really enjoyed our stay. Recommend to anyone looking for an excellent hotel. Seize this opportunity to thank Novotel devoted staff members. F. D.

  • 6.0.Good

    Functional but not special

    The hotel was clean, quiet and mostly everything worked as expected. Check-in and check-out were effortless and the staff were friendly. The food on the a la carte menu was good although I found the buffet breakfast disappointing. All food and beverages push the price ceiling compared to other similar hotels in Africa. The hotel does not offer much by way of an ATM, money exchange, travel services, etc. Internet speed was manageable during the day, frustrating at peak times, and the connection dropped too frequently to successfully complete a single Whatsapp call home. The room was slightly musty accompanied by an occasional sewage odour and the air-conditioner had to work hard to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Opening the windows helped with the smell but made the air-conditioner suffer -- so not really a solution when it's 30 degrees and humid out. The bed was comfortable, the shower good and the room relatively quiet. Hotel location is not convenient for going out at night as the surrounding business district turns into a morgue after dark. But apparently it's a good choice for circumventing the city's tortuous traffic.
