Spent one night here from 5th to 6th of january 2015 and found that Place absolutely amazing, astonishing architecture. Rooms nicely decorated, very clean and Esch individually designed. We had a romantic Dinner in the 'Maroccan salon' and enjoyed the cozy fireplace as it was rather chilly during this time of the year. Amede is an excellent Host who Really aims to make you feel comfortable. Thanks a lot for the nice time we had.
My husband and I stayed here the week the hotel was re-opening during the first weekend in January. Despite having been closed for the year, the service, cleanliness and charm far exceed all other options in Mopti. This is a beautiful hotel, extremely well designed, and with great character. Each detail has been thought through with care, and is followed through on in the furnishings. The garden is a lovely place to relax with a book or a drink, and there are nooks and crannys on all levels of the hotel to enjoy the evening with a view of the neighbourhood, while sitting under the stars. On the practical side: Rooms are spacious, with well positioned lighting, good screens on the windows, and nice bathrooms. There is air conditioning and a ceiling fan in each room, but no mosquito net, so a room spray would be useful to avoid bites during the night (although we did not have any problems with mosquitos while there). The staff are attentive, responsive, and helpful. While there, they even helped us to organize a short trip to the Pays Dogon, and recommended a good guide. Food is good quality, with each meal home-made, fresh, and flavourful. The continental breakfast is also well done - fresh fruit salad and pastry very tasty. I would have loved a proper espresso, but all in all, very good. The location is off the main road behind the Kanaga hotel, but still convenient with a 5 minute walk to the riverfront. We would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Mopti, either for business or pleasure, and will certainly go back.…
There are many reasons to visit Mali, but contemporary architecture is not one. However, Mopti has two exceptions, this hotel being one of them. Although made of the most common material, adobe block, it pushes construction to the edge with its use of arches, and to its three/four story height. Exploring its corridors, stairways, roof decks and interior spaces is a treat. The other building in town is the Museum of Mud Architecture: introducing Mopi's Grand Mosque, as well as Djenne's and Timbuctou's.
This would be a beautiful hotel any place in the world. It is graceful and romantic. The rooms are spacious. The food was excellent. Unless you're on a really strict budget this is the very best place to stay in Mopti.
What a wonderful hotel in the middle of Mali! Beautifully designed with comfortable rooms, lovely nooks to see the sunset, have dinner before a roaring fire, sit in the tropical garden with a book and a French breakfast. Made my trip to Mali more memorable than I could ever have expected.
