After being checked into an occupied room at 1 AM, I got a new room but the decor was clearly half renovated with an abundance of different styles and colors. Room service took forever (One and half hours for a bowl of soup!) and was terrible value for money ($60 for a bowl of s

This would be an ok hotel for a night or two but if you are in town for more than that, it is not the right place for you. I spent two weeks at Sofitel Abidjan and this is by far the worst experience I had in any hotel in Africa / Accorhotel and I am on the road 70% of the time.

You get what you pay for in Sofitel, and Abidjan is no exception. Excellent location, and different restaurants to choose from. Restaurant on the top floor of the Ivory Tower is top class (view photo). Things got a little crowded in the bar lounge area on Friday night - but that

Two weeks at this hotel provided ample opportunity to experience it's features, ranging from the accommodations to restaurants to swimming pools.

In brief, this is an oasis of luxury and comfort such that you forget you're surroundings. West Africa isn't known for these traits;

I do like Sofitel hotels. Whether in the Middle East or in Europe they never disappointed. Until now.
Sofitel Abidjan is different, far from standards you would expect.

I stayed at the main building.
- Room size was OK.
- Dirty stained carpets that should have been ren

How much for the day use ? .... come use the pool and hotel facilities ?
Horrible Joyeux Noël at this gasly property. Had to change rooms 4 times. The 1st room smelled of mold and mildew so bad you couldn't breath. The 2nd: just stank. Horrible odor. *Mind you we're in 9 room suite!!! The 3rd room didn't have an pots, pans, plates etc in full kitchen. Microwave is not working. Microwave turns on but you smell burning wires. Each time the staff comes,they look, bring you free juice or Christmas cake to make up for it, smiles in your face and leaves. NEVER EVER fixes anything. Seventeen calls later, calls for managers, but no managers are in Africa, they are in other countries we are told and rude staff parade through our rooms and eventually they offer to move us again but all that is available are smaller mold mildew smelling rooms. The living room had a welcome basket of rotten fruit. Staff smile and take away only the worst items. We are asked if we want free dessert. The sausage this morning was half cooked. The bacon was warm mostly Raw. Potatoes and pancakes cold. We said okay, let it go nuke it in the microwave. Microwave didn't work. Okay we got to stove here, pull out of pot and let's just heat it up. Okay there's no pots or cups or anything in the kitchen. 12 hours later and we're still in the same position. No pots in the kitchen. No breakfast. But they brought this free Yuletide cake and smiled in our faces. One of the rooms the lights don't come on. We go to the pool to relax and are rudely escorted away away from the pool saying we can't us it. We show our room key but are horrified as we are escorted out. A manager has to accompany us back to po chairs, again it's the have a free drink on us. Worst experience of my life and my 1st experience as an African American to the motherland. Horrible inhumane service and experience. All manner of civilization is absent. Overrated barbaric experience at best. Do NOT visit Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire. You'll ruin your vacation, get treated poorly at best, and go home frustratedt best!!! Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire offers a barbaric 3rd world NIGHTMARE.
I am SURE you have experienced this only because you are yourself a mean person. So it was only a reflection of who you are.

How far is the hotel from the airport and can the hotel offer a transfer?
30' drive from the airport with a local taxi. No, even this expensive hotel does not have a shuttle (les expensive have on). The taxi fare should be between 6000CFA and 10000CFA. Any price above need to be down-negotiated. If he gives you a fare price from the start give him a higher tip.

Hello am here to tell you that Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire is a very good hotel but the senior staffs are not doing the right the senior are not good to the junior staffs am from usa but I notice that the senior staffs of Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire are not organized and they are very wicked that what I notice and I wish they should stop using the junior staffs like machine and talking to the junior like slaves thank you
Radiation Blu in Dakar is nowhere near the best hotel on the continent. I've been to 33 countries in Africa. How many have you been to? On the question: it's cultural. I found it more prevalent in West Africa, but it's true of most parts of Africa. Lamentable, and I don't condone, but widespread. I think if you want to have impact or get people thinking write a review.

"Rooms on the new wing (not tower side) are more spacious. I was in a club room with the City view."
"I am sure in this massive hotel that there are larger rooms than the one I had"
"I also recommend to walk around the hotel in the evenings, great ambiance, decoration, garden, and waterbodies,"
"Quieter rooms are the ones of the Tower"
"Ask for a view over the water (lagoons), and not on the side that overlooks the Embassy area"
