The hotel is a typical African one, as you would expect in many other African countries. It is clean, but also located at a busy street. If your room is facing the street, you can enjoy the traffic noise early morning onwards. They allowed smoking at the reception, which was not a very welcoming first impression. When ordering a drink... More

Very near presidential palace. Staff very attentive. The setting was pleasant and so was most of the food but the meat was inedible it was so tough. I had lamb, others had beef. What a shame. First time I have actually given up trying to eat meat. I wouldn't risk taking business guests there.

A business hotel where you cannot make business. Internet is prehistoric, service is pathetic: personnel is as helpful as a ice maker at the pole. Had two guests for dinner on a Friday night and a) no more beer on tap (basically as intelligent as running out of petrol on a F1 Grand Prix day) b) three out of six... More

I've been staying from time to time at the CDR since 2006. Always thought it to be good value but since the rooms have been refurbished (not sure when) I think it represents even better value. I stayed in a superior room which is a great size with a huge bed, nice bathroom with walk-in shower. Rooms are always clean... More

The hotel is quite clean and some of the staff do speak English. It has a slot machine casino in it. It is near a lot of shops and street market. The staff are pleasant. It is walking distance to the beach.

I stayed there and had over 200 euros stolen. I am not saying this was the staff or anyone associated with the hotel I have no proof but only myself and my partner had access to the room apart from employees with access and at no point did I remove that money from my room. I did speak with the... More

Good well laid out rooms, with comfortable facilities for the business traveller. A friendly reception, on arrival and a good well designed attached restaurant for business dining and also for the tourist. The breakfast menu is quite an impressive spread.

I stayed in a double room on the second floor of Cafe de Rome's hotel for two nights in June 2012. The room was clean, quiet and equipped with fridge, stove, and dishes. There was good wifi internet access and cable TV (about 10 channels). Cafe de Rome is conveniently located downtown, at walking distance from several restaurants such as... More
