First, let me say the staff here is phenomenal and will go out of there way to help you. The quality of the hotel is just so-so, mostly because it is old and hasn't been updated in years. The rooms, while clean, can be a bit smelly and old. The pool is nice and clean, again a bit old. The... More

Very nice staff. Good service. Free Wi-Fi only in the lobby and very slow. Swimming pool is good but on weekend is used by non-guests and sometimes crowded. The same goes abou Gym and sauna. Nice clean places but with outside visitiors sometimes crowded.

Stayed at Hilton Yaoundé for 10 days for a training seminar. This hotel is just outstanding in all aspects. The quality of service is exceptional. Very professional staff that care about you 24 hours a day. Excellent food in all 3 restaurants and conference facilities are A++. I strongly recommend this hotel for your stay in Yaoundé.

My third stay in Yaounde Hilton. Very high standards for service, cleanliness, and friendliness of staff. Naturally top-notch furnishings and equipment in the rooms. The only drawback are the high prices in the restaurants, compared to local prices.

It is the best hotel In Yaounde. There is no option, we have to stay in this as it is a status symbol for my designation. However the cost charged is too heavy for the luxury offerred. Since there is hardly any competition, there is no option. I will definitely stay here again.

Close to many ministries and business. Pool and bar pool + fitness center and spa are of great value to rest and relax. Easy to have meetings there, either as group or just over a drink at the lobby. Service is nice
