Quite far from de centre and not easy to find. It's opposite to the West African University. Rooms for about 6000xof, if it isn't overbooked you will get a private room with a fan and a nice clean bathroom. Very nice standart and a meal of the day for 2000xof. There's a swimming pool on the site although it wasn't really usable when I stayed there. Anyways a good value for money

Very uncomfortable hard bed, I normally don't get up for anything during the night but at about 3am I'd had enough and went out to get our sleeping mattress. The room is much hotter than the outside so uncomfortable in this regard too. At 7am our phone rang, we ignored it and then someone knocked on the door, again we ignored it but were awake by then so decided to just get up and leave, at 8 we got another knock, it was just ti do with payment. Very expensive even if it were nice. Fan rooms Single - 8,500cfa Double - 10,000cfa AC rooms Single - 13,500cfa Double - 15,000cfa
