Having read other reviews, I was prepared for anything... but was pleasantly surprised! Stayed here for four nights with two colleagues on a business trip. We arrived late at night, checked in and were promptly shown to our rooms - all of which were fine. Reception staff were friendly and spoke good English. My room was massive with a nice modern shower in a clean bathroom where everything worked perfectly. Good flat screen TV too, with loads of French channels, and CNN in English. I was opposite the lift, so worried about noise, but heard nothing. The bed was so comfortable that I slept really well every night. Breakfasts were perfectly acceptable, although nothing special (except the almond croissants on Saturday morning which were delicious). The fruit juice, however, was more like diluted cordial and best left in the jug. We had dinner when we arrived. There was a reasonable choice, but it was all cold and microwaved for you once you'd selected your food. Wifi inthe room was a bit unpredictable, but worked most nights. If the connection was limited, I deleted the memory of the connection, found the signal again and re-signed in. That normally worked and I managed 20 minute SKYPE calls most nights. Can't compare with other hotels in Cotonou, but I was happy with my stay. HOWEVER, a smoke alarm outside a colleague's room bleeped all night, every night. It probably just needed a new battery, but it wasn't replaced when we were there. He still slept OK! less
